Drawings which represents installation standards is called hook up drawings. With hook-up drawings, engineer can understand how an instrument to be installed in the plant. With hook-up drawing, we can calculate the material requirement. Two types of hook up drawings are there.

1. Pneumatic hookup.
It is independent of process connection. Pneumatic hookup is basically Tubing/piping
2. Process hookup.

    I found your blogs good in respect it is helping revising my previous works knowledge as instruments and control engineer.
    Your data is summarized and knowledgeable.

  2. Before we used Auto-Cad for creating hook up now a days we can used SPI/INtool ( Smart plant Instrumentation) Used to create Hook Up as well as all relative documents like Instrument Index, Specification sheet, Process data, Wiring ( Convention, FF, Profibus, Modbus and HART), LOOP diagram(Smart Loop, Enhanced Smart Loop), BOM and many more .. This Blog is really helpfull more .. NICE BLOG I EVER SEEN
