TUNNELLING MACHINE INSTRUMENTATION FOR USE IN COAL MINES

An instrumentation system has been developed to monitor the cutting and overall performance of a full-face tunnelling machine. Information from transducers on the tunnelling machine was electronically conditioned and then transmitted to the surface for recording and subsequent analysis. A certificate of intrinsic safety has been obtained for the equipment, allowing its use in a coal mine. (Author/TRRL)
