Retrieving DCS Catalogs

  • In an integrated environment, retrieving DCS Catalogs no longer requires that the SmartPlant Schema Component and SmartPlant Client are installed on your local machine.

    • Publishing DCS Catalogs still requires that the SmartPlant Schema Component and SmartPlant Client be installed.

    • If you are working with the Smart Instrumentation - Smart Electrical point-to-point interface, you should install the SmartPlant Schema Component and SmartPlant Client from the Smart Instrumentation installation DVD.  If you are working in a fully integrated environment then, you must install these items from the SmartPlant Foundation installation DVD.

Macro Expansion

  • Macro Expansion is no longer available in Smart Instrumentation when using direct point-to-point interface with SmartPlant PDS/SP P&ID
