These options allow you to set your preferences for tag number duplication and tag creation when running batch loop creation from typical loops.  Depending on the preferences that you set, when duplicating tags, the software can do one of the following:

  • Create new conventional tags based on the instrument type profile of the source tag number, and when running batch loop creation, create new conventional tags based on the instrument type profile of the typical tag number defined for the selected typical loop.  You cannot create typical tags based on the instrument type profile of the source tag.

  • Create new tags based on the properties of the selected source tag number, and when running batch loop creation, create new tags based on the properties of the typical tags defined for the selected typical loop in the Typical Tag Number Properties dialog box.

Instrument tag duplication and batch creation options

Create new tags according to profile options — Select this option to do the following:

  • Create new duplicated tag numbers based on the instrument type profile of the source tag number.  Note that you also have to activate the required profile options on the Profile page of the Preferences dialog box.

  • Create new tags based on the instrument type profile of the typical tags during batch loop creation.  Note that you also have to activate the required profile options on the Profile page of the Preferences dialog box.

Duplicate source tag data — Select this option to do the following:

  • Create new tags based on the properties of the selected source tag number. 

  • Create new tags based on the properties of the typical tags defined for the selected typical loop in the Typical Tag Number dialog box. 

When duplicating a tag number, you can also include additional data associated with source tag numbers.  Select the appropriate check boxes below.

The following check boxes are not applicable when running batch loop creation.

CAD blocks — Includes all the CAD blocks assigned manually to the source tag, page numbering in the loop drawing where the blocks are located, and the X, Y, Z offset coordinates of the block in the loop drawings.  In the Loops folder of the Domain Explorer, manually assigned blocks are shown under instruments as PPM All Outputs Graphic.

The CAD blocks preference does not apply to blocks assigned to instruments using the automatic block assignment method.  In the Loops folder of the Domain Explorer, these blocks are shown under instruments as .  Such blocks are always duplicated under the target instruments.

Specifications — Includes the specifications associated with the source tag.  You can include the process data information in the source specification only if you select the Process Data check box as well.

  • Instrument specifications are duplicated only if you select the Process data check box too.

  • When duplicating a loop, the software always duplicates the loop composite spec.

Process data — Includes the process data information of the source tag.  This option is required if you want include tag source instrument specifications as well.

Wiring — Includes the entire wiring information of the source tag.
