Abstract
The usefulness of an integrated data communications network in an air monitoring system which communicates with the data processing equipment was considered. Such a capability would increase the usefulness of the system. Some of the data gathered may be used to generate alarms indicating that contamination levels are above certain preset limits. Other data can be used in the development of controls and work practices to lower worker exposure. Continuous monitoring in a number of areas within one facility can be instrumental in defining an exposure problem. Environmental conditions may affect product quality in some processes with continuous monitoring being used to maintain process quality. A local area network (LAN) provides interconnected of communicating computers in a specific area. Within one facility there may be a number of LANs serving individual processes with a backbone LAN service for the entire facility. The integration of continuous monitoring data into facility wide data communications was discussed.
