A general introduction to the subject, and a few details on the "Intrinsic Safety" type of protection, are followed by a description of the internal setup and capabilities of the transputers. The "parallel processors" and the "Parallel-C" programming language are then reviewed. A concept for a modular, intrinsically safe multi-processor system for rapid measured data acquisition was drawn up, and assemblies and devices suitable for approval were created within the framework of a development venture. The multi-processor system consists of a microprocessor-controlled master computer an the transputer-controlled measurement devices.
