You can import a hook-up item library from an external seed file to your database.  After you import the hook-up item library, you can assign the new imported items to your existing hook-ups from the Hook-Up Item List.  You can also use prepared hook-up drawings which are stored in the HOOK-UP sub-folder of your Smart Instrumentation home folder.

You import the required hook-up library first by locating the seed file and then by importing the required hook-up libraries to the appropriate plant in your database.  You can only import the link groups that you purchased the appropriate license for.

  1. Start the Administration module and log on as Domain Administrator.

  2. With the Domain Administration window open, click Add-Ins > Import Hook-Up Library.

  3. In the Import Hook-Up Library dialog box, under Source, locate the seed file in one of the following ways:

    • In the File name and path box, type the path and filename of the required seed file (the default file is IN_CTLOG.DDTI).

    • Click Browse to navigate to the required seed file.

  4. Do one of the following:

    • Click Standard to select the library that contains standard compatible hook-ups.

    • Click SHELL to select the library that contains Shell International compatible hook-ups.

  5. In the Hook-up drawing path box, do one of the following:

    • Type the drawing path for the items in the imported library (the default location is <Smart Instrumentation home folder>HOOK-UP).  This is useful if you do not want to type the path every time you retrieve a drawing from this library.

    • Leave the data field empty.  This way you will have to type the path when retrieving each drawing.  For this option, you will still be able to assign a path to the drawings in the Hook-Ups module in batch mode.

  6. In the Plant Name data window, select the name of the plant in which the appended hook-up items will be used.

  7. Click Import to append the selected hook-up item library to the database.

 The software does not allow you to import a hook-up item library that already exists in the database.  If you attempt to import such a hook-up item library, the software displays an appropriate message.
