Can the Altivar 58 do plug reversing?

Plug reversing is done by physically reversing phases to the motor. If this is done with a drive running the motor, the drive would be subjected to locked rotor amps. This will damage the drive controller.
When direction is reversed with an AC drive then the drive will decelerate to 0 speed and then accel in the other direction. Dynamic braking can be used to reduce the braking time if necessary.
