Rig control from SD works on all Kenwood rigs with USB ports.

Connect a USB cable from between your PC and the TS-590G, as described 
on Page 73 of your rig's manual. You'll need a USB cable with the 
corresponding connectors.  Then use SD's PORTS command to assign the 
appropriate port number for rig control.
