Abstract
This report discusses an investigation of the application of solid state devices to information displays on underground coal mining machines. The specific purpose of the feasibility study was to consider solid-state devices as replacements for conventional electrical or electromechanical devices, to increase the reliability of the machinery, to increase safety in the explosive mine atmosphere, to decrease maintenance requirements, and to increase adaptability of the machinery to automatic and remote control techniques. It is recommended that the light emitting diode (oed) be used as the basic solid-state device for display design. Replacement of conventional displays with solid-state displays is technically feasible, but because of the very limited usage and simplicity of the conventional displays now in use on underground coal mining equipment, the practicality of replacing them with solid- state displays is doubtful.
