Title: Power shovel data accumulator and display. Third topical report

Abstract

The objective of the Power Shovel - Data Accumulator and Display project sponsored by the Department of Energy is to develop a microprocessor-based monitoring system to improve the utilization of loading shovels used in the coal industry. This system monitors the shovel operation, displays performance parameters and maintenance alerts to the operator and provides mine management with a data base and reporting system on shovel production and maintenance. The major components of the system are a Z8002 microcomputer, operator keyboard and display, signal conditioning unit, radio data link and sensors to monitor the shovel operation. A prototype system was fabricated and laboratory tested. The topical report on Task III - Field Testing and Analysis of Experimental Data describes the installation, testing and evaluation of the system at a mine site.
