How to add Different symbols and shapes in compact builder 800 5.1
I am learning COMPACT HMI 800 5.1 SCADA SOFTWARE. This software is little different and complex from other scada softwares.
Please tell me how to ADD MOTORS,VALVES IN MY SCADA. (In the software there is motor symbol library but its just a square box.)
Can i import symbol from SYMBOL FACTORY and if yes tell me how to add.
Also suggest me where can i seek indepth knowledge of COMPACT HMI 800(there are videos on youtube but they are limited to some extent)

Every graphic object placed on the process graphics editor screen has its own set of properties which govern its visual appearance and dynamic behaviour in run time.
The properties of the concerned object are available in Properties tab.
To add graphic objects from the various ToolBoxes available, simply double click on the desired item from the toolbox or Select Item >> Drag and Drop on the workspace window.
By default, the Symbol factory object is a pump.To select any other object from the library, select Edit option from the context menu of the pump symbol to open the library. The symbol factory library is available only if Symbol Factory has been installed during setup.
For most of us, indepth knowledge can be acquired only by working on several CHMI projects + spending a considerable amount of time reading the help section of CHMI software.
In case your company is willing, they could arrange for a training on CHMI at an ABB training centre located in your region.
