Flowserve – Direct Data Exchange – out of the box

Flowserve provides a range of flow management services, primarily for the process industries. Direct Data Exchange allows transfer of data between various user databases and Flowserve's Performance valve sizing and selection software. The software works with Smart Instrumentation and allows export of data from Performance in any format.

Fluke – Fluke calibration tools – out of the box

Process instrument accuracy can be affected by temperature, age, vibration and the normal wear-and-tear of daily operation. Fluke calibration tools can help you ensure that your instruments accurately measure process variables. You can meet product specifications, protect your machinery from damage, and prevent unscheduled shutdowns by better planning maintenance.

Honeywell – Experion™ Process Knowledge System

Honeywell will standardize its automation project engineering on Smart Instrumentation, the next step in an ongoing collaboration to integrate SmartPlant Enterprise with Honeywell’s latest process automation technology, Experion Process Knowledge System. The goals of the ongoing partnership are to optimize plant safety and productivity and to improve operational efficiency.

SAP – SAP R/3 – out of the box

The Smart Instrumentation-API (IDEAL) interface to SAP R/3 enables you to access and view documents and drawings straight from the SmartPlant Instrumentation database without having to log off the SAP R/3 system. You can use both DLL and executable files, with the convenience of maintaining your engineering data in Smart Instrumentation.

External Editor

Smart Instrumentation External Editor is a free download that enables an external party, such as a vendor, contractor, or engineering company, to modify specifications outside of Smart Instrumentation.

The External Editor allows the user to open specification sheets that have been created in Smart Instrumentation and modify them as needed. The modified specification sheets can then be imported back into SmartPlant Instrumentation for further processing.

The External Editor supports .psr and .isf file formats. Using the External Editor, users may edit a single-tag specification or multi-tag specification.

The version of External Editor must match the version of Instrumentation in which the specification is going to be imported. Once a specification has been edited in a newer version of the External Editor, it cannot be downgraded to be imported into an older version of Instrumentation.

KKS Industry Standards

The reference data contains files to enable the Kraftwerks Kennzeichnungs System (KKS) industry standards.

KKS standards will facilitate standardized plant engineering processes and reduce project start-up time in the design of fossil, co-generation and nuclear power plants. Documentation is included that will explain how the standard delivered software and reference data (RDB) can be updated to support the KKS naming conventions.

KKS standards are available on Intergraph Smart Support.
