You can import link groups from an external source file to the Smart Instrumentation database.  After you import these linked groups you can use them in the Import utility to import data from external sources.  You import the required external links first by connecting to a source file and then by importing the required link groups to your database.  After that, you can prepare and run the links in the Import Utility.

System interfaces are available for the following link groups:

  • PDS/Smart P&ID

  • Fisher

  • Performance Spec #1

  • Performance Spec #71

  • Masoneilan Spec #1

  • Masoneilan Spec #75
