How to read Control narrative (interlock & control description).

How to read Control narrative (interlock & control description).


Hi everyone. I need to translate documentation for P&ID "Control narrative (interlock & control description)" into russian.
So, I have few questions.
Does CONDITION mean - current state(if EFFECT is ACTION)? Or maybe it means just CONDITION, if EFFECT is Initiator/Permissive. How to understand meaning of this table?
What is the difference between STOP and STOP ACTION stages.
Thanks in advance.

RE: How to read Control narrative (interlock & control description).

Looks to me like condition means:
  1. current state if EFFECT is Permissive
  2. activated input if EFFECT is Initiator
  3. output turned on/event caused if EFFECT is Action.
