Design Process Graphics in Factory Talk View Studio with an Analog Input

In this article, you will learn the configuration of Analog input (P-AIn) Process Graphics in Factory Talk view Studio.

We are going to Configure Analog Input as a temperature transmitter in FT view Studio with PlantPAx DCS Library 4.10.00.

It Helps you to view Analog Input as a better functionality with user-based objects which helps you understand and troubleshoot the operation.

Step 2: After selecting the local station/Network Distributed click on a project created previously or create a new project.

PlantPAx New Project

In the language section, select the language appropriately or else it can lead to errors in process graphics.

Step 3: After Opening the Project Right Click on Display and Click on New, to create a new display.

Step 4: After creating a new project (I have created an Analog-Input display) open the P-AIN Graphics Library from the global objects section.

Step 5: Analog inputs in the library are applicable for the Analog input block, Analog input advance block, etc.

Analog inputs in library

Select and copy PV Indicated by value Analog input from the library as shown below.

Since there are other analog input display bars also but which we are selecting are standard one which has all relevant objects needed for operation.

Step 6: Once copied in the display, right-click on the object and click on Global Object parameter values.

Global Object parameter values.

In#102: Enter Object Tag

In#103: Enter Path

In#120&#121: If an additional display parameter requires then you can enter X (*) or CC, which means it will help you to display the parameter popup as per your coordinates set in runtime (It is optional).

In#122: Enter as value 1 and click on OK.

Step 7: Same you can configure for required analog inputs such as Flow Transmitter, Pressure Transmitter, Weight Transmitters, etc.

Step 8: Click on the Runtime button to launch runtime.

Step 14: Click on Analog Input to view Faceplate as shown below.

Analog Input to view Faceplate

Home Button shows Analog-Input value in units with trends as shown below image.

The settings button indicates your threshold and dead band values you can configure
here as well as in logic.

Raw Input in PlantPAx

This button indicates Raw input and Process value from raw input through scaling.
Note: Signal failure is showing because I have not connected any IO modules.
