Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


Work relating to the Telsafe H2 for the DTF cutting machine was carried out within the framework of the present project. It remained to study the software for the centralisation of information on board the cutting machine and for the management of the entire communication system. Other functions required by the users were also studied and integrated into the equipment software.

In order to optimise digital communications between the Electra 2000 cutting machines and the surface, a major development of Telsafe equipment installed on the surface, the technology of which was no longer suitable for the required functions, was researched. The new equipment, which is based on the use of standard PC-type micro-computers, is a data compressor called a CAJ-PC. The protocol of communication is the standard JBUS. In the operating units data is exchanged between the machines in service (Electra 2000, DTF, PANDA) and the CAJ-PC installed at the surface. Through the use of the latter, exchange of information is also carried out between the cutting machines in use in the Bassin and the general management of the Lorraine Collieries, where a CAJ-PC compressor is also installed. .
