Tech/Engineering - Engineering (general)
German term or phrase: Anglagenbild-er
In a specification list for updating the computer system at a power plant the following text appears:

"Es müssen Werkzeuge mitgeliefert werden um neue Anlagenbilder ohne den Systemlieferanten erstellen zu können."

Would you say "plant pictures", "plant images", "system pictures" or "system images?"
