The Bureau of Mines Pittsburgh Mining and Safety Research Center has installed a centralized computer facility to provide on-line, high- speed, short-duration data acquisition; on-line, low-speed, long- duration data acquisition; and off-line, high- and low-speed data acquisition through control of such data storage devices as data- loggers, analog magnetic tape recorders, and satellite mini- or microcomputers. The computer facility consists of a host pdp-11/70 front-ended with two pdp-11/34's. The pdp-11/70 coordinates the functions of the two pdp-11/34's and processes the bulk of the data retrieved from the two front-ends. One of the 11/34's is dedicated to the high-speed data acquisition, and the other handles low-speed data acquisition, data-loggers, analog tape recorder, and satellite mini- or microcomputers.
