About this task

Note: You can designate default output signals before creating systems from the Signal column in the Naming and Signal Preferences screen. See the Setting Preferences section for details.

The steps that follow apply to adding an output when viewing the application using the Classic View perspective. These steps may be different if you are using a different perspective. See the Perspectives section.


  1. Hover over the Outputs or Miscellaneous (outputs) header until the Add () icon appears in the right corner and click the icon. The New Module Selection (Module Selection for Outputs) dialog box appears. See the New Module Selection screen section.
  2. Type the name of the output to locate in the Filter field. For example, if your system requires a 0 to 10 VDC Humidity control point, you can type Humidifier, or 0 10 VDC to narrow the results. The search displays and filters results for each letter that you type, regardless of where the letter appears in the output attribute (application, signal, data type, and so on). For example, if you type chw, CHW Bypass Loop appears as well as Hx PCHWP. Your filter text is indicated by the bolded letters of the output attribute. You can click any column header to sort the results in alphabetical or reverse alphabetical order.
    Note: The filter box is not case-sensitive.
  3. Click the Count box next to the output you want to add and adjust the number of outputs to add using the up and down arrows. Green highlighting appears when you change the quantity. To add another output, go back to Step 2 and search for that output attribute. You do not need to close the New Module Selection dialog box to add a different output.
  4. In the User Name field, type a name for the output.
    Note: To rename the output later, right-click the output and select Rename (or use the F2 shortcut key).
  5. Click Finish. The output module or modules appear in the Outputs or Miscellaneous (outputs) section of the Control View.
    Note: If you must change the signal, right-click the module and select Modify Signal. See Modifying an Input or Output Signal.
