This is an optional feature and will only be available if it has been licensed in the key file.
Acquire must be in Config mode to perform these steps.
Custom enterable fields allow Acquire to be extended by adding new fields that can record manually entered values that are stored in Acquire Once defined, custom fields can be used on the P&ID, data screens, alarms screen and custom reports.
Custom fields can also be used to apply simple mathematical formulas to one or more flow computer fields. See the ‘Setting up Calculation Fields’ section for more details.
The Custom Fields list will be displayed:
The Custom Fields entry screen will be displayed:
The screen layout will be updated to allow the enterable field settings to be configured:
|Full Field Name||This is the name used to identify the enterable custom field.|
|Type||Set the Type field to “Enterable”.|
|Station||This is the station that the field is associated with. This helps in locating the field when setting up the P&ID and detail screens.|
|Units||These are the units that should be used when displaying the field. Either select a unit from the popup menu or manually enter one.|
|Security Level||Acquire uses Security Levels to determine the level of access that the user must have to change a field’s value. Security Level 0 is always not enterable. Set the Security Level to match the user’s permissions.|
|Value||This is the default (or current) value of the field.|
This will save the Custom Field and add it to Custom Field list:
Note: Although the new custom field is displayed on the Custom Fields list it will not be available to the rest of Acquire until the server is restarted.
Acquire will restart and the new custom field(s) will be available in the P&ID, screens, charts and reports.
