Displays all the editable instance-specific information about the selected equipment object. The property name appears on the left side of the grid and the corresponding property value appears on the right side of the grid. If more than one equipment object is selected, only the common occurrence properties for the selected objects appear on the tab.
When viewing properties for a single equipment object, the following properties appear. More properties may appear depending on what you defined in the reference data. For more information about occurrences defined in the reference data, see the Equipment and Furnishings Reference Data Guide available with the Help > Printable Guides command in the software.
Because equipment properties are customizable in the equipment and furnishings reference data, only the properties that are required by the software are documented.
Show Dimensional Legend
Displays the bitmap image associated with the equipment object if it has been defined in the reference data. The image displays in a separate window.
Select the properties to view, modify, or define. Equipment properties are divided into several different categories: Standard, Position and Orientation, Insulation and Tracing, Weight and CG, Equipment Dimension, Fabrication and Construction, Surface Treatment and Coating, and Responsibility.
Displays the name of the equipment object. The equipment name is based on the Name Rule selection. If you type a name in this field, the Name Rule property updates to User Defined.
Specify the naming rule to use to name this equipment object. You can select one of the listed rules or select User Defined to specify the equipment name yourself in the Name box.
Specifies a description for the object.
Select the system to which the object belongs. By default, the model is the parent system for the object. If a parent system is selected when you start the command, System is automatically updated with the selected system. If multiple systems are selected when you start the command, System is automatically updated with the last used system.
Specifies the reporting requirement for the object. To change the options on the list, edit the Reporting Type select list in Catalog.
Specifies the type of reporting. To change the options on the list, edit the Reporting Type select list in Catalog.
Specifies whether the object has been correlated to an object in a P&ID. The list is defined by the EFWCorrelationStatus select list.
Specifies whether the object is correlated to a P&ID object. The list is defined by the EFWCorrelationBasis select list.
Correlate Object indicates that the object has a correlating object in a P&ID.
No correlation is required indicates that the object does not have a correlating object in a P&ID.
Correlation Approval Status
Specifies whether the object is approved with discrepancies in the three-dimensional data compared with design basis data. The list is defined by the EFWCorrelationApprovalStatus sheet in the AllCodelist workbook.
Topology mismatch approved indicates that the object topology mismatch can be ignored.
Data and Topology mismatches approved indicates that the object data and topology mismatches can be ignored.
None indicates that you do not approve a mismatch.
Position and Orientation
Displays the distance of the connection point from the active coordinate system origin in the east direction.
Displays the distance of the connection point from the active coordinate system origin in the north direction.
Displays the distance of the connection point above or below the active coordinate system origin.
Specifies the bearing angle for the object. The Bearing angle is measured between the local x-axis of the object and the Y-axis (North) of the global coordinate system in the XY-plane. The local x-axis is the default axis of primary symmetry for all symbols in the catalog. The bearing measurement direction is clockwise from the active coordinate system North looking in the negative active coordinate system direction; that is, down from 0 to 360 degrees. You can enter negative bearing angles, but the software automatically converts them to the positive equivalents. If the pitch is set to +/- 90 degrees, then the bearing measure displays 0 degrees.
Specifies the pitch angle for the object. The Pitch angle measures between the x-axis of the object and the X-axis of the global coordinate system in the XZ-plane. This option sets the reference in the model to a line that is the intersection of the vertical plane through the X-axis of the local coordinate system and the active coordinate system horizontal plane. The angle is measured in the positive direction from the horizontal plane in the active coordinate system up direction regardless of the current bearing. Another way to describe pitch is the rotation of the object about its y-axis. Pitch angles are limited to between -90 degrees and +90 degrees, with 0 indicating horizontal.
Specifies the roll angle for the object. The Roll angle measures between the local z-axis of the object and the Z-axis of the global coordinate in the YZ-plane. Another way to describe roll is the rotation of the object about its x-axis. This option sets the reference in the model to a line that is perpendicular to the local coordinate system x-axis and in the horizontal plane. Roll angles are measured clockwise from horizontal to the y-axis of the local coordinate system. The roll angle is between 0 and 360 degrees. You can enter negative roll angles, but the software automatically converts them to the positive equivalents. If the pitch is set to +/- 90 degrees, then the reference in the model is the North axis.
