I assume that this is a European application from the 380VAC input. Siemens would be glad to sell you a drive good for your 460 VDC Motor. This is a fairly common setup, I believe that a fully digital system is now available.
If you are in the US call Apfelbeck electronics (Assistant Production Manager)in Wisconsin. Ken is one of the sharpest guys on the Siemens DC drives. He can replace the obsolete electronics and keep the SCR packs for armature and field. I believe that the applicable range of the drive for 480 includes the 380 drives as well. The important thing is the rating of the SCR bridges.
Give Ken a call and he can give you his email address. Ken has done work for me and I have been very satisfied with his work.

I assume that you have a bad or troublesome drive or need a second one. Call Apfelbeck if the drive you have has bad boards. he can fix them or swap them or replace them with new digital that are less trouble. If the SCR bridge is OK ( and this would be the same parts even if a new drive was purchased) then the enw electronics would give the functionality at a much lower cost.
