Adding a Device to the P&ID

Acquire must be in Config mode to perform these steps.

When Acquire starts for the first time it will automatically generate its best guess at what the P&ID should look like. It will draw the meter runs, common header and the prover (where applicable). Once the default P&ID has been generated it can be easily customised.

1. Select ‘P&ID’ from the ‘Acquire’ menu

5. Select ‘Save P&ID’ from the ‘File’ menu to save the changes
