These options enable you to place an instrument using information defined in the Instrument Component Specification Data of the Material Reference Database.

The display setting of the specialty material description for piping specialties is defined with the Active Options command.

Specific Instruments

The system activates the List of Specific Instruments form which lists all the instruments defined in the PJS which meet the nominal piping diameter criteria imposed by the active first size and the active second size. It lists the instruments in alphanumerically ascending order by tag number.

Typical Instruments

This option searches the PJS for all the instruments that have blank tag numbers or option codes greater than 20,000 (typical instrument loaded from the IN task).

The system activates the List of Typical Instruments form which displays each instrument with a description from the RDB which meets the nominal piping diameter criteria imposed by the active first size and the active second size. It lists the available instruments in alphanumerically ascending order by instrument model code and component number.

Display Data for Specialty — Displays the attribute values defined for the selected item.

If the specification data is defined in the Material Reference Database but the component number is undefined (blank), the system prompts for the component number prior to placement.

After you specify the component number for the instrument, the material description is re-displayed on the basis of the component number (if such a material description is defined). Otherwise, the material description which was determined on the basis of the model code is displayed.
