Instrument Specification Numbers

Instrument Specification Numbers

Instrument Specification Numbers

Does anyone know of a list of standard instrument datasheet/specification numbers or a number series?
One engineering company uses 17xxx series
MasterSpec is mainly for builders/architects and does not have a series for instruments/automation.
ISA has a list of datasheet forms but does not have a standard list of specification  numbers.

RE: Instrument Specification Numbers

From my experience, that is up to the end user.  Some are very organized about drawings and their numbers and others not so much.

RE: Instrument Specification Numbers

Most companies are different.  I like using the tag number for one device covered by the spec for the spec number.

RE: Instrument Specification Numbers

Looks like section 25 or 26 is instrumentation in MasterSpec?

This is normally the space where people post something insightful.

RE: Instrument Specification Numbers

Thanks controlnovice!

I had the 2004 version and this 2011 version has been greatly expanded.  Section 40 90 00 looks like what I'm after.  I'll have to look at it in more detail.
