Seamless interaction with Tag Database
Background Graphics Database tracks Tags as they are being used
Hyper Link to CAD Drawings makes finding the control logic
responsible for graphics easy!
New Cross Reference Linking
While editing CAD Drawings, viewing
the item properties of cross reference
bubbles will reveal the destinations of
matching cross reference bubbles by
performing an SQL search on the
Cross Reference Database.
Double clicking any item in the search
results grid will automatically load the
drawing and zoom into the matching
Cross Reference Bubble

Bring your Tag Information
together with your CAD
documentation in a
seamless manner.
While editing CAD
Drawings, clicking on a
block with a Tag associated
with it, users have access
to ALL Tag Database
Fields for the block.

drawing and zoom to the block
New CAD Item identification
Whenever a CAD drawing is
loaded by one of the
Databases by double clicking a
record, the Drawing will be
zoomed to the desired item
The item will then be briefly
illuminated by a red flashing
rectangle to orient the users
eye correctly on the item
The item may be re-flashed by
typing CTRL+F from the
keyboard while editing the
Advanced Monitoring
Monitor Live Values from the
CAD Editor
Monitors Block Outputs

mouse is rolled over a
monitoring point indicating the
source of the value and
whether or not the value is in
Alarmed values displayed with
a colored background
Digital values include graphical
symbol indicating 0 or 1
Monitor multiple CAD Drawings

project containing up to 4 Million cross
reference bubbles)
Log files displaying errors are
interactive with the CAD editor.
Double clicking an error will invoke the
CAD editor with the drawing in error
and zoom to the correct position and
hi-light the error
Client Example: a client of ours can
cross reference over 3200 CAD
drawings with 42,000 cross reference
bubbles in under 1 minute with RCAD

used in ALL Documentation.
Quickly get to the desired document file by double clicking on the Tag Interrogator
Search Results.
As changes are made to the documentation, all background databases are
updated automatically.
No labor intensive recompiling is required. All changes are instantly applied.
Concerned about having users writing to your documentation? Simply install RCAD
in Demo Mode. Users won’t be able to modify the documentation or write to the Infi90 DCS. They will be able to monitor and view all the documentation as DBDoc can.
Best of all, IT’S FREE!
For users who do wish to modify documentation, RCAD is able to build a new Tag
List very quickly. This can’t be done by DBDoc.
