Allows you to set additional filter definitions for loop numbers that appear in the Loops folder of the current Explorer window.  You can select one or more CAD drawing blocks and only display those loops that contain the selected blocks as associated sub-items.

Filter loops according to blocks

Blocks associated with tags — Displays CAD drawing blocks that are associated with loop tags.  After you select one or more blocks, in the Loops folder of the current Explorer window, the software only displays loops whose blocks are associated with the tags using the block-tag assignment method.

Blocks associated with instrument types — Displays CAD drawing blocks that are associated with the instrument type of the loop tags.  After you select these blocks, in the Loops folder of the current Explorer window, the software only displays loops whose blocks are associated with the tags using the block-instrument type assignment method.

  • If you need, you can select blocks from both data windows, that is, any combination of blocks associated with instrument types and blocks associated with instrument tag numbers.

  • In the Administration module, Explorer windows do not include blocks.  Blocks only appear in the Domain Explorer, which you can open in Smart Instrumentation.  In the Domain Explorer, blocks associated with instruments using the manual block assignment method are marked with the icon PPM All Outputs Graphic.  Blocks associated with tags using the automatic block assignment method are marked with the icon .
