Systems—which refer to specific physical building systems such as HVAC and technology—are independent binder settings that can be used in any of your account’s binders, regardless of any dependent settings applied.

While the Systems setting is optional for binders with content relating to these physical systems, it is a primary category against which binder content can be indexed and retrieved.

Some common Systems types include:

  • Architectural
  • Electrical, Low Voltage
  • Electrical, Power & Distribution
  • Furnishings
  • Information Technology (IT)
  • Mechanical
  • Plumbing

While each of the above System types could also be broken down into more granular categories (e.g., Video Surveillance Systems as one component of the Electrical, Low Voltage field), the Tabs setup within each binder can also be used to further categorize content.
