It is common to ma)e "etter com!inations in 'I:; dia rams accordin A$SI<ISA S5.171=>(? 1==9) @Instrumentation sym!o"s and identification@ standard. In addition to the "etter com!ination it is common #ith a succeedin num!er as a unique identification of the actua" instrument. +he num!erin practice varies 7 some use a sequentia" num!er& others use a num!er re"ated to the process "ine num!er or simi"ar.

First etter
