1.

Turn on the power of the computer running Windows.

2.

Log on by pressing the [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Del] keys.

3.

Enter the user name and password to the Windows logon window.

4.

HIS will start up.

Security Check for Operation and Monitoring on HIS

The operation and monitoring scope on HIS is determined by the settings of user group and the privilege level.

The user rights on the HIS are predefined on the HIS security builder according to the user group and the privilege level.

The security setting of each HIS can be different from others, so that a user’s right maybe different on different HISs. Thus a user’s operation and monitoring scope on a HIS can be performed only in the range predefined for the HIS.

Changing Privilege Level

If an operation keyboard is connected to the HIS, the privilege level can be changed by switching the MODE key on the keyboard.

There are two types of keys for the keyboard, operation key and engineering key.

Switching Bind Data of Graphic Displays

When creating Graphic windows for similar process units, if their drawing objects are the same but the function block, data item of process data, modifier conditions as well as constant values indicated by the drawing objects are different, thus using Data Bind switch- ing the bound data can display the multiple units with one graphic window.

How to switch the data bindings using the predefined data set are explained as follows.

3.5 Using Shortcut Keys

The functions for the 20 functions keys of the HIS operation keyboard are executable from the designated shortcut keys. Nevertheless, these functions are valid on the shortcut keys only after they are assigned to the function keys on the HIS operation keyboard and the option for enabling the shortcut keys are checked on the Station tab of HIS Setup window.

SEE ALSO

For more information about the details of Shortcut Keys, see the following:

E2.10, “Emulate Function Keys in Operation and Monitoring Windows” of “CS 1000/CS 3000 Reference (IM 33S01B30-01E)”

Assignments of the Functions

The functions of the shortcut keys need to be assigned to their corresponding functions keys of the HIS operation keyboard. Thus the function key assignments needs to be per- formed on the Function Key Assignment Builder or the Function Keys tab of the HIS Setup window.

Enabling Shortcut Keys

The procedure will be explained below.
