【発明の属する技術分野】 BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
本発明は、複数のRFID(Radio Frequency Identification)素子を、長く延びた部材の長手方向に、間隔をあけて設けて構成された連長体、その製造方法及び上記連長体が設けられたケーブルに係り、特に、上記長く延びた部材がパイプ状の部材であるものに関する。 The present invention, a plurality of an RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) device, in the longitudinal direction of the elongated member, run-length body that is constituted by spaced, their preparation and the run-length body formed cable to relate, in particular, the elongate member is about what is pipe-shaped member.
【0002】 [0002]
【従来の技術】 BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
従来、たとえば、敷設されている多数のメタルケーブルや光ファイバケーブルの中から、目的とするケーブルのみを識別する方法として、上記各ケーブルの外皮(シース)表面に印字を施し、または上記各ケーブルにタグを取り付け、ケーブルを識別する方法が知られている。 Conventionally, for example, from a number of metal cables or optical fiber cables that are laid, as a method for identifying a cable only for the purpose, it performs printing on the outer skin (sheath) surface of each cable, or the respective cables attaching a tag, methods are known for identifying the cable.
【0003】 [0003]
ここで、上記印字は、製造者名、製造年月日、ケーブルの品名、ケーブルの長さ等の情報を、インクや熱転写レーザ等で、上記ケーブルの外皮表面に施すことによって行われている。 Here, the printing, manufacturer name, production date, cable product name, information such as the length of the cable, in the ink or thermal transfer laser or the like, is performed by applying the envelope surface of the cable. また、上記タグには、上記印字されているものとほぼ同様な情報が、たとえば刻印されている。 Further, the tag is substantially the same information as that which is described above printing, for example, is engraved. そして、上記タグは上記ケーブルの外皮に貼り付けられ、または上記ケーブルにたとえば金属線を用いて吊り下げられている。 Then, the tag is suspended with the cable attached to the skin, or a metal wire, for example, in the cable.
【0004】 [0004]
ところで、ケーブル表面に印字をする場合、上記ケーブルの長手方向に沿って印字がされるため、文字数が多くなると、敷設されているケーブルを長い区間にわたって露出させる必要がある。 However, when printing on the cable surface, for printing along the length of the cable is, when the number of characters is increased, it is necessary to expose the cable that is laid over a long period. しかし、上記ケーブルが、たとえば、トラフ内に敷設され、このトラフに蓋がされている場合、上記蓋を長い区間にわたって取り外す必要があり、さらに上記トラフが土砂の中に埋設されていると、上記土砂を長い区間にわたって取り除く必要があり、上記ケーブルを露出させるために多大な工数が必要になる。 However, the cable, for example, is laid in the trough, when the lid is in the trough, it is necessary to remove the lid over a long period, further the trough is embedded in the sediment, the it is necessary to remove sediment over a long period, it is necessary to large number of steps in order to expose the cable.
【0005】 [0005]
そこで、上記印字をする場合、上記ケーブルの長手方向に沿ってされる印字の長さを極力短くすることが望ましいが、このように印字の長さを制限すると、上記ケーブルに関して必要な情報の総てを、上記ケーブルの外皮に印字することが困難であるという問題がある。 Therefore, when the printing, it is desirable to reduce the length of the print to be along the longitudinal direction of the cable as much as possible, to limit the length of such a printing, the total of the necessary information with respect to the cable hands, there is a problem that it is difficult to print the outer skin of the cable.
【0006】 [0006]
また、上記ケーブルの外皮表面に印字された文字や記号等の、上記ケーブルに関する情報は、長い期間の経過や、たとえばケーブル設置時の擦り等によって、かすれたり消えてしまい判読不可能になる場合があるという問題がある。 Also, letters and symbols printed on the envelope surface of the cable, the information relating to the cable, course or longer period, for example by rubbing or the like during cable installation, may become illegible disappear or hoarse there is a problem in that there is.
【0007】 [0007]
さらに、タグを上記ケーブルに設ける場合、長尺のケーブルに一定の間隔で、タグを多数個設けなければならず、タグを設ける際の工数がかかり、また、上記印字をする場合と同様に、タグに多くの情報を書き込むことは困難であり、さらに、上記ケーブルに設けたタグがケーブルから離脱し、またはタグに記載されている情報が時間の経過とともにかすれたり消えてしまい判読不可能になる場合があるという問題がある。 Furthermore, in the case of providing a tag to the cable at regular intervals in a long cable, it is necessary a large number of tag number provided, it takes steps when providing the tag, also as in the case of the printing, it is difficult to write a lot of information on the tag, further, the tag provided in the cable is disengaged from the cable, or will become unreadable disappeared or faded with the passage of time information in the tag If there is a problem in that there is.
【0008】 [0008]
そこで、上述のようなケーブル外皮表面への印字やタグに代えて、ケーブル外皮表面に、たとえば、QRコード(二次元バーコード)を貼り付けた構成のケーブルが開示されている(たとえば特許文献1)。 Therefore, instead of printing or tag to the cable outer skin surface as described above, the cable outer skin surface, for example, construction of a cable is disclosed in which paste the QR code (two-dimensional bar code) (e.g. Patent Document 1 ).

ところで、上記特許文献1に示すケーブルによれば、このケーブルに関する情報がQRコード化されているので、上述のように印字やタグを使用する場合よりも、上記ケーブルに関する情報を大量に格納することができる。 Meanwhile, according to the cable shown in Patent Document 1, since the information about the cable is QR coded, than when using a print or tag as described above, by storing a large amount of information about the cable can.
【0011】 [0011]
しかし、上記QRコード化された情報は、上記ケーブルの表面に設けられているので、上述のように印字をした場合と同様に、長い期間の経過や、たとえばケーブル設置時の擦り等によって、かすれたり消えてしまい、またはケーブル表面からはがれてしまい判読不可能になる場合があるという問題がある。 However, the QR coded information, since provided on the surface of the cable, similarly to the case of the printing as described above, progress and long periods, for example by rubbing or the like during cable installation, hoarse there is a problem or disappear, or there is a case to become a cause unreadable peeled off from the cable surface.
【0012】 [0012]
本発明は、上記問題点に鑑みてなされたものであり、ケーブルに関する情報を従来よりも多量に格納可能であり、設置後長時間が経過しても上記格納している情報が判別不可能となるおそれが少ないケーブルおよびこのケーブルへの設置が容易な連長体およびこの製造方法を提供することを目的とする。 The present invention has been made in view of the above problems, and information is a large amount of storable than the conventional relates to a cable, the information even after the lapse of a long time after installation is the stored impossible determination the installation of a risk to a small cable and the cables that provides easy run-length body and the manufacturing method for the purpose of.

次に、連長体製造装置9の動作について説明する。 Next, the operation of the run-length production apparatus 9.
【0041】 [0041]
連長体製造装置9の初期状態においては、RFID素子格納手段13には、複数のRFID素子7が格納され、シャッタ21Bの上部側の通路25内にも複数のRFID素子7B等が格納され、シャッタ21Aとシャッタ21Bとの間には1つのRFID素子7Aが格納されている。 In the initial state of the run length production apparatus 9, the RFID device storage unit 13, a plurality of RFID elements 7 are stored, such as a plurality of RFID elements 7B is stored in the upper side of the passage 25 in the shutter 21B, one RFID element 7A is stored between the shutter 21A and the shutter 21B. また、第1の格納手段15には、長く延びたパイプ状部材3であって、内部にRFID素子7が格納される前の(内部にRFID素子7が格納されていない)パイプ状部材3が、巻かれて格納されている。 Further, the first storage means 15, a pipe-shaped member 3 extending long, (RFID element 7 is not stored therein) before the RFID element 7 therein is stored a pipe-shaped member 3 , it is stored wrapped in.
【0042】 [0042]
さらに、上記第1の格納手段15に格納されているパイプ状部材3の一端部側が、たとえば僅かに巻き取られていることによって、上記第2の格納手段17に固定され、パイプ状部材3が、上記第1の格納手段15から上記第2の格納手段17に向かって水平方向に直線的に延伸している。 Further, one end side of the tubular member 3 which is stored in the first storage means 15, by for example being wound up slightly, fixed to the second storage means 17, a pipe-like member 3 , and linearly extending in the horizontal direction from said first storage means 15 toward the second storage unit 17.
【0043】 [0043]
また、上記第1の格納手段15から上記第2の格納手段17に向かって延伸し、上記第2の格納手段17と供給口19との間におけるパイプ状部材3の中間部は、移動手段23の履帯23Aと履帯23Bとによって挟み込まれている。 Further, the first extending from the storage means 15 toward the second storage unit 17, an intermediate portion of the tubular member 3 between the supply port 19 and the second storage means 17, moving means 23 It is sandwiched in by the track 23A and track 23B.
【0044】 [0044]
上記初期状態において、上記各RFID素子7を上記パイプ状部材に挿入するための供給口19を、パイプ状部材3のスリット5に差し込み、この差し込みによって、スリット5の一部を開口し、上記供給口19を差し込んだ状態で、上記パイプ状部材3を上記供給口19に対して(上記スリット5の上記開口部に対して)相対的に、上記パイプ状部材3の長手方向に、移動手段23を用いて移動し、この移動をしているときに、供給手段21を用いて上記供給口19(上記スリット5の上記開口部)を介して、RFID素子7を間歇的に(たとえば、移動量検出手段23Cが、パイプ状部材3が一定量移動したことを検知する度に)上記パイプ状部材3の内部に挿入する。 In the initial state, the supply opening 19 for inserting the respective RFID element 7 to the pipe-shaped member, inserted into the slit 5 of the pipe-shaped member 3, by the insertion, opening portions of the slits 5, the supply while inserting the mouth 19, the pipe-shaped member 3 (with respect to the opening of the slit 5) with respect to the supply port 19 relative to the longitudinal direction of the pipe-shaped member 3, the moving means 23 move with, when you are the movement, via the supply port 19 with the supply unit 21 (the opening of the slit 5), intermittently (e.g. an RFID element 7, the moving amount detection means 23C is a time for detecting that the tubular member 3 has a certain amount of movement) inserted into the interior of the tubular member 3. このように動作することによって、上記パイプ状部材3内に間隔をあけて、複数のRFID素子7を設ける。 By such an operation, at intervals to the tubular member 3 is provided with a plurality of RFID elements 7.
【0045】 [0045]
第1の格納手段15から供給されて、内部にRFID素子が設けられたパイプ状部材3は、第2の格納手段17によって巻き取られて格納される。 Is supplied from the first storage means 15, a pipe-like member 3 to which the RFID device is provided inside, are stored is taken up by the second storage means 17.
【0046】 [0046]
なお、上記パイプ状部材3は弾性体であるので、上記供給口19が差し込まれている近傍では、スリット5が開いているが、上記供給口19から、上記第1の格納手段15の方向や上記第2の格納手段17の方向に離れるにしたがって、スリット5は閉じる。 Since the tubular member 3 is an elastic body, in the vicinity of the supply port 19 is plugged, but the slit 5 is open, from the supply port 19, Ya direction of the first storage means 15 farther in the direction of the second storage means 17, the slit 5 is closed. 特に、RFID素子7が挿入された後に、すなわち、上記供給口19から第2の格納手段17の方向に向かうにしたがって、スリット5が閉じるので、供給口19を介して供給されたRFID素子7は、パイプ状部材3の内部空間に設置されることになる。 In particular, after the RFID element 7 is inserted, i.e., toward from the supply port 19 in the direction of the second storage unit 17, since the slits 5 is closed, RFID device 7 which is supplied through the supply port 19 It will be placed in the inner space of the tubular member 3.
【0047】 [0047]
また、上記パイプ状部材3の内径が、上記RFID素子7の外径よりも僅かに大きく形成されていても、上記第2の格納手段17で巻き取ったときに、パイプ状部材3が、この長手方向の軸芯を中心にして僅かに捻れるので、すなわち、スリット5によって形成された、互いに対向している面同士が相対的に僅かにずれるので、上記パイプ状部材3の内径が僅かに小さくなり、挿入されたRFID素子7は上記パイプ状部材3で押さえ込まれ、パイプ状部材3の内部で位置ずれしないようになっている。 The inner diameter of the tubular member 3, be formed slightly larger than the outer diameter of the RFID element 7, when the wound in the second storage means 17, a pipe-like member 3, the because twisted slightly about the longitudinal axis, i.e., formed by the slit 5, together so opposite to that face each other is relatively slightly shifted, the inner diameter of the tubular member 3 is slightly decreases, the inserted RFID element 7 is held down in the tubular member 3 so as not to shift position in the interior of the tubular member 3.

図3は、連長体1が設けられているケーブル27の概略構成を示す断面図である。 Figure 3 is a sectional view showing a schematic configuration of a cable 27 which Renchotai 1 is provided.
【0050】 [0050]
なお、上記断面図(図3)は、ケーブル27の軸方向に直角な平面でケーブル27を切断した場合の断面図である。 Note that the cross-sectional view (FIG. 3) is a sectional view taken cable 27 in a plane perpendicular to the axial direction of the cable 27.
【0051】 [0051]
ケーブル27は、内部にケーブルコア29を備え、このケーブルコア29の外側はシース31で覆われている。 Cable 27 is internally provided with a cable core 29, outside of the cable core 29 is covered with a sheath 31.
【0052】 [0052]
ケーブルコア29は、この中心部にケーブル27の長手方向に沿って長く設けられた抗張体33を備え、抗張体33の周りを囲むように、断面が円形状のスロット35が、ケーブル27の長手方向に沿って長く設けられている。 Cable core 29 includes a tension member 33 provided to extend in the longitudinal direction of the cable 27 to the central portion, so as to surround the periphery of the tensile bodies 33 cross section is circular slot 35, cable 27 It is provided to extend in the longitudinal direction.
【0053】 [0053]
スロット35の外周のほぼ等角度で分配された位置には、ケーブル27の長手方向に沿って、複数の溝39A〜39Fが設けられている。 At positions distributed at substantially equal angles of the outer periphery of the slots 35 along the longitudinal direction of the cable 27, a plurality of grooves 39A~39F is provided. そして、上記各溝39A〜39Fのうちのたとえば1つの溝39F内に、ケーブル27の長手方向に沿って、連長体1が設けられている。 Then, for example, within one groove 39F of the respective grooves 39a to 39f, in the longitudinal direction of the cable 27, Renchotai 1 is provided. また他の各溝39A〜39Eには、たとえば4芯の光ファイバテープ41が適数個設けられている。 Also each of the other grooves 39a-e, for example, optical fiber tapes 41 in the four-wire is provided suitable number.
【0054】 [0054]
さらに、連長体1と光ファイバテープ41とが設けられているスロット35の外周には、上記連長体1と光ファイバテープ41とを押さえ込むための押え巻き43が横巻きされている。 Further, on the outer periphery of the slots 35 and Renchotai 1 and the optical fiber tapes 41 are provided, the presser winding 43 for hold down and the run-length body 1 and the optical fiber tape 41 is laterally wound.
【0055】 [0055]
このようにして、連長体1は、ケーブルコア29に一体化されて設けられている。 In this way, Renchotai 1 is provided to be integrated into the cable core 29.
【0056】 [0056]
なお、格納するためにケーブル27をドラムに巻いた場合、外側に位置する光ファイバテープ41のみが延びることを防いで、各光ファイバテープ41が、ほぼ均等に延びるようにするために、上記各溝39A〜39Eは、ケーブル27の長手方向に延伸する中心軸CLに対して、平行に直進しているのではなく(図3の紙面に直角に延びているのではなく)、僅かにねじれて長手方向に延伸している。 Note that when wound cable 27 on the drum for storage, it prevents only the optical fiber tape 41 located outside extends, for each optical fiber ribbon 41, to extend substantially uniformly, each groove 39A~39E, relative to the central axis CL extending in the longitudinal direction of the cable 27, (not extend at right angles to the plane of FIG. 3) rather than being parallel to straight, slightly twisted It has been stretched in the longitudinal direction. つまり、図3の紙面に対して僅かに斜めに傾いて延びている。 That extends inclined slightly obliquely to the plane of FIG.
【0057】 [0057]
そして、溝39Fも僅かにねじれて延伸しているので、連長体1のパイプ状部材3が、長手方向の軸心を中心にして僅かに捻れ、パイプ状部材3の内径が僅かに小さくなって、パイプ状部材3がRFID素子7を保持している。 Then, since the stretching is also slightly twisted grooves 39F, tubular member 3 of Renchotai 1, slightly twisted about a longitudinal axis, an inner diameter of the pipe-like member 3 is slightly smaller Te, the pipe-like member 3 holds the RFID element 7.
【0058】 [0058]
また、押え巻き43がされたケーブルコア29の外側は、長手方向の断面が円環状のシース31で被覆されている。 Also, outside of the cable core 29 to the presser winding 43 is the longitudinal cross-section is covered with an annular sheath 31. なお、上記シース31は、たとえば、ポリエチレン(PE)、ポリ塩化ビニル(PVC)、ノンハロゲン難燃材、燃やした場合に有毒ガスを発生せず、またビニルとの分別が容易なエコ材等で構成されている。 Incidentally, the sheath 31 is, for example, polyethylene (PE), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), non-halogen flame retardant, does not generate toxic gases when burned, and fractionation arrangement easily eco materials such as vinyl It is.
【0059】 [0059]
次に、ケーブル47について説明する。 Next, a description will be given of cable 47.
【0060】 [0060]
図4は、連長体1が設けられているケーブル47の概略構成を示す断面図である。 Figure 4 is a sectional view showing a schematic configuration of a cable 47 which Renchotai 1 is provided.
【0061】 [0061]
なお、上記断面図(図4)は、ケーブル47の軸方向に直角な平面でケーブル47を切断した場合の断面図である。 Note that the cross-sectional view (FIG. 4) is a sectional view taken cable 47 in the axial direction perpendicular to the plane of the cable 47.
【0062】 [0062]
ケーブル47は、内部にケーブルコア49を備え、このケーブルコア49の外側はシース51で覆われている。 Cable 47 is internally provided with a cable core 49, outside of the cable core 49 is covered with a sheath 51.
【0063】 [0063]
ケーブルコア49は、この中心部にケーブル47の長手方向に沿って長く設けられた抗張体53を具備した、長手方向に垂直な断面が円形状のテンションメンバ55を備え、連長体1と、長手方向に垂直な断面が円形状である複数の光ファイバコード57とが、テンションメンバ55の周りを囲んで、ケーブル47の長手方向に沿って長く設けられている。 Cable core 49, equipped with a tension member 53 which is provided to extend in the longitudinal direction of the cable 47 to the central portion, the cross section perpendicular to the longitudinal direction comprises a circular tension member 55, Renchotai 1 , a cross section perpendicular to the longitudinal direction and a plurality of optical fiber cord 57 is circular, surrounding the periphery of the tension member 55, are provided to extend in the longitudinal direction of the cable 47. 換言すれば、図4に示すケーブル47の断面図では、各光ファイバコード57および連長体1が、テンションメンバ55の外周壁に接し、さらに、隣り合う各光ファイバコード57同士が互いに接し、連長体1が設けられている箇所では、この連長体1とこの連長体1と隣り合う光ファイバコード57とが互いに接している。 In other words, in cross-sectional view of the cable 47 shown in FIG. 4, the optical fiber cord 57 and Renchotai 1, in contact with the outer peripheral wall of the tension member 55, further, contact the optical fiber cord 57 adjacent to each other, in the portion where Renchotai 1 is provided, and the optical fiber cord 57 adjacent the run-length body 1 and the run-length body 1 is in contact with each other.
【0064】 [0064]
さらに、図4の断面図において、連長体1の外周のうちで、テンションメンバ55から最も離れた部位と、各光ファイバコード57の各外周のうちで、テンションメンバ55から最も離れた各部位とを、互いに結んだ包絡線に沿って、上記連長体1と光ファイバコード57とを押さえ込むための押え巻き59が横巻きされている。 Furthermore, in the sectional view of FIG. 4, of the outer periphery of Renchotai 1, a site most distant from the tension member 55, among the respective outer peripheries of the optical fiber cord 57, each portion furthest from the tension member 55 the door, along a connecting it envelopes each other, the presser winding 59 for hold down and the run-length body 1 and the optical fiber cord 57 is laterally wound.
【0065】 [0065]
このように押え巻き59がされていることによって、連長体1は、ケーブルコア49に一体化されて設けられている。 By this way are presser winding 59, Renchotai 1 is provided to be integrated into the cable core 49.
【0066】 [0066]
なお、格納するためにケーブル47をドラムに巻いた場合、外側に位置する光ファイバコード57のみが延びることを防いで、各光ファイバコードが、ほぼ均等に延びるようにするため、上記光ファイバコード57と連長体1とは、ケーブル27と同様に、僅かにねじれて長手方向に延伸している。 Note that when wound cable 47 on the drum for storage, it prevents only the optical fiber cord 57 located on the outside extending, for each optical fiber cord, to extend substantially uniformly, the optical fiber cord the 57 and Renchotai 1, similarly to the cable 27, which extends longitudinally slightly twisted. つまり、図4の紙面に対して僅かに斜めに傾いて延びている。 That extends inclined slightly obliquely to the plane of FIG.
【0067】 [0067]
そして、連長体1が僅かにねじれて延伸しているので、連長体1のパイプ状部材3が、長手方向の軸心を中心にして僅かに捻れ、パイプ状部材3の内径が僅かに小さくなって、パイプ状部材3がRFID素子7を保持している。 Since Renchotai 1 is stretched slightly twisted, tubular member 3 of Renchotai 1, slightly twisted about a longitudinal axis, slightly the inner diameter of the tubular member 3 smaller, the pipe-like member 3 holds the RFID element 7.
【0068】 [0068]
また、押え巻き59がされたケーブルコア49の外側は、長手方向の断面が円環状のシース51で被覆されている。 Also, outside of the cable core 49 to the presser winding 59 is the longitudinal cross-section is covered with an annular sheath 51. なお、上記シース51は、シース31とほぼ同様に、たとえば、ポリエチレン、ポリ塩化ビニル、ノンハロゲン難燃材、または、エコ材等で構成されている。 Incidentally, the sheath 51 is substantially similar to the sheath 31, e.g., polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride, non-halogen flame retardant, or are composed of eco material or the like.
【0069】 [0069]
連長体1によれば、パイプ状部材3の長手方向に間隔をあけて、複数のRFID素子7が配置され固定されており、連長体1が長く一体的に形成されているので、連長体1の長手方向とケーブルの長手方向とを互いにそろえて、連長体1を上記ケーブルのケーブルコアに一体化して設けることが容易になり、各RFID素子7を上記ケーブルの長手方向に間隔をあけて設ける作業が容易になる。 According to Renchotai 1, at intervals in the longitudinal direction of the tubular member 3 has a plurality of RFID elements 7 are arranged and fixed, since Renchotai 1 is integrally formed long, continuous a longitudinal direction of the longitudinal and cable Nagakarada 1 aligned with each other, the Renchotai 1 makes it easy to provide integrated cable core of the cable, spacing each RFID element 7 in the longitudinal direction of the cable it is easy to work to provide open the.
【0070】 [0070]
また、連長体1によれば、この連長体1を製造する場合、弾性を備え長く延びたパイプ状部材3の長手方向に連続して設けられたスリット5の一部を広げて、RFID素子7を上記パイプ状部材3内に挿入し、上記RFID素子7を挿入した後に、上記開いていたスリット5を上記パイプ状部材3の復元力で閉じ、続いて、上記スリット5の上記一部とは異なる他の一部を広げて、他のRFID素子7を上記パイプ状部材3内に挿入することを繰り返すことによって、所定の間隔をあけて、パイプ状部材3内に複数のRFID素子7を挿入して設けるので、特殊な冶具や工具や装置を使わなくても、連長体1を容易に製造することができる。 Further, according to Renchotai 1, in this case to produce a run-length body 1, to expand the portion of the slit 5 provided continuously in the longitudinal direction of the tubular member 3 extending longer an elastic, RFID the element 7 is inserted into the pipe-shaped member 3, after inserting the RFID device 7, a slit 5 that were open the closed by the restoring force of the tubular member 3, followed by the part of the slit 5 to expand the different other part and the other RFID device 7 by repeatedly inserting into the pipe-shaped member 3, at predetermined intervals, a plurality of RFID elements in a pipe-shaped member 3 7 since the insert and provided, without using special jigs or tools and devices, it is possible to easily manufacture the Renchotai 1.
【0071】 [0071]
なお、上記RFID素子7の形状を円柱状にして、上記RFID素子7の側面外壁が、上記パイプ状部材3の内面壁に沿うように、上記RFID素子7を配置すれば、上記RFID素子7と上記パイプ状部材3との間の接触面積が大きくなり、上記RFID素子7をパイプ状部材3の内部に安定した状態で設置することができる。 Incidentally, the shape of the RFID element 7 in the cylindrical, outer side wall of the RFID element 7, along the inner surface wall of the tubular member 3, by arranging the RFID element 7, and the RFID element 7 the contact area between the tubular member 3 is increased, it is possible to install the RFID element 7 in a stable condition inside the tubular member 3.
【0072】 [0072]
また、上記RFID素子7の形状を円柱状にして、さらに両端部を半球状に形成すれば、RFID素子7の外径形状において角部がなくなり、RFID素子7の強度が増すと共に、RFID素子7をパイプ状部材3内に挿入する場合、RFID素子7をパイプ状部材3に対して傾け、上記半球状部分から先にパイプ状部材3内に挿入するようにすれば、上記半球状部を挿入していくにしたがって、上記スリット5の開口量が除々に増加するので、スリット5を予め大きく開く必要はなく、RFID素子7をパイプ状部材3内に容易に挿入することができる。 Further, the shape of the RFID element 7 in a cylindrical shape, if further formed at both ends in a hemispherical shape, there is no corner portion in the outer shape of the RFID element 7, the strength of the RFID element 7 is increased, RFID devices 7 the case of inserting into the pipe-shaped member 3, tilt the RFID element 7 relative to the tubular member 3, if to be inserted into the pipe-like member 3 first from the hemispherical portion, inserting the hemispherical portion accordance continue to, since the opening of the slit 5 is increased gradually, rather than in advance large need to open the slit 5, it is possible to easily insert the RFID element 7 like a pipe member 3.
【0073】 [0073]
また、連長体1によれば、上記パイプ状部材3の内径が上記円柱状のRFID素子7の外径と同じ寸法または上記円柱状のRFID素子7の外径よりも僅かに大きな寸法であるので、パイプ状部材3の内部に、RFID素子7を収納するための空間が確保されており、RFID素子7をパイプ状部材3内に容易に挿入することができる。 Further, according to Renchotai 1, the inner diameter of the tubular member 3 is a slightly larger dimension than the outer diameter of the same size or the cylindrical RFID element 7 and the outer diameter of the cylindrical RFID element 7 since, in the interior of the tubular member 3, are reserved space for housing the RFID element 7, it is possible to easily insert the RFID element 7 like a pipe member 3.
【0074】 [0074]
なお、上述のように、上記パイプ状部材3の内径が上記円柱状のRFID素子7の外径と同じ寸法または上記円柱状のRFID素子の外径よりも僅かに大きな寸法であると、パイプ状部材3内に挿入配置されたRFID素子7が、パイプ状部材3内で移動して(ずれて)しまうのではないかという懸念があるが、各RFID素子7が内部に挿入されたパイプ状部材3(連長体1)は、直線状に長く延びた状態ではなく、たとえばドラム等に巻き取った状態で保管されるため、この巻かれたときに、連長体1がこの軸線を中心にして僅かに捻れ、この捻れによって、パイプ状部材3の内径が小さくなり、内部に挿入されたRFID素子7を保持することができる。 As described above, the inner diameter of the tubular member 3 is a slightly larger dimension than the outer diameter of the same size or the cylindrical RFID element and the outer diameter of the cylindrical RFID element 7, a pipe-like RFID element 7 which is inserted in the member 3 is moved in the tubular member within 3 there is a concern that not than (deviation) would, pipe-like members each RFID element 7 is inserted into the interior 3 (Renchotai 1) is not a elongated state linearly, for example to be stored in wound state on the drum or the like, when the wound, Renchotai 1 around the axis slightly twisting Te, this twisting, the inside diameter of the pipe-like member 3 is reduced, it is possible to hold the RFID element 7 inserted therein.
【0075】 [0075]
また、連長体1において、パイプ状部材3を耐熱性樹脂で構成すれば、連長体1の耐熱性が向上し、たとえば、RFID素子7が耐熱性を備えているにもかかわらず、パイプ状部材3が高温で先に軟化し、連長体1の形態が変化してしまうという事態を極力回避することができる。 Further, in Renchotai 1, if constituting the tubular member 3 with a heat-resistant resin, and improved heat resistance of Renchotai 1, for example, despite the RFID element 7 is provided with a heat-resistant pipe Jo member 3 is softened earlier at elevated temperatures, it can be avoided as much as possible a situation where the form Renchotai 1 is changed. たとえば、連長体1をケーブル27のケーブルコア29に設け、このケーブルコア29を溶融した高温のシースで被覆する場合でも、連長体1のパイプ状部材3が軟化することを防止することができる。 For example, provided Renchotai 1 to the cable core 29 of cable 27, even when covered with a sheath of high temperature melted the cable core 29, is possible to prevent the tubular member 3 of Renchotai 1 is softened it can.
【0076】 [0076]
また、連長体1によれば、パイプ状部材3の内部に各RFID素子7が設けられることによって、各RFID素子7が保護されている。 Further, according to Renchotai 1, by the RFID element 7 is provided inside the tubular member 3, the RFID elements 7 is protected. したがって、たとえば、各RFID素子7の外皮が破損しやすい部材で構成されている場合に連長体1が外力を受けても、RFID素子7が破損しにくくなっており、連長体1の取り扱いが容易になる。 Thus, for example, be the case receiving Renchotai 1 an external force to the outer skin of the RFID element 7 is constituted by easily members damaged, has become RFID element 7 is hardly broken, the handling of Renchotai 1 it becomes easy.
【0077】 [0077]
連長体製造装置9によれば、各RFID素子7を上記パイプ状部材3に挿入するための供給口19を、パイプ状部材3のスリット5に差し込み、上記供給口19を差し込んだ状態で、上記パイプ状部材3を上記供給口19に対して相対的に、上記パイプ状部材3の長手方向に、移動手段23を用いて移動し、この移動をしているときに、供給手段21を用い上記供給口19を介して、RFID素子7を一定の間隔で上記パイプ状部材3の内部に挿入するので、正確な設置間隔で、RFID素子7をパイプ状部材3の内部に容易にしかも迅速に設置することができる。 According to run-length production apparatus 9, each RFID element 7 the feed opening 19 for insertion into the pipe-shaped member 3, inserted into the slit 5 of the tubular member 3, while inserting the above feed port 19, relatively the tubular member 3 with respect to the feed opening 19, in the longitudinal direction of the pipe-shaped member 3, to move with the moving means 23, when they are the moving, using a feed means 21 through the supply port 19, since the insertion into the interior of the pipe-shaped member 3 a RFID element 7 at regular intervals, at precise installation interval, the RFID device 7 easily and quickly inside the tubular member 3 it can be installed.
【0078】 [0078]
連長体1を備えたケーブル27によれば、ケーブル27に関する情報を記憶している記憶媒体としてRFID素子を採用しているので、ケーブル27の外皮(シースの外周面)への印字またはケーブル27へのタグの貼り付けやタグの吊り下げによって、ケーブル27に関する情報(たとえば、ケーブル27を識別するための情報)を格納(表示)するよりも、大量の情報を格納でき、しかも、ケーブル27の外皮を露出させずに、RFID素子7の情報を読み取り表示可能なRFIDリーダをケーブル27に近づけるだけで、RFID素子7に格納されている情報を上記RFIDリーダで読み取って表示することができる。 According to the cable 27 having a Renchotai 1, because it uses an RFID element as a storage medium for storing information about the cable 27, the printing or cable 27 to the outer skin of the cable 27 (the outer peripheral surface of the sheath) by hanging paste or tags of the tag to the information about the cable 27 (for example, information for identifying the cable 27) than to store the (display), storage of large amounts of information, Moreover, the cable 27 without exposing the skin, only approximate the information of the RFID element 7 read displayable RFID reader cable 27, the information stored in the RFID element 7 can be displayed by reading in the RFID reader. つまり、ケーブル27に関する情報を容易に読み取って表示することができる。 In other words, it is possible to read and display to facilitate information on cable 27.

また、連長体1を備えたケーブル27によれば、ケーブル27に関する情報を記憶している記憶媒体としてRFID素子7を採用し、このRFID素子7を、ケーブル27のシース31が被覆しているので、ケーブル27敷設後の長い期間の経過や、ケーブル27を設置するときの擦り等によって、ケーブル27に関する情報がかすれたり消えたりして、判読不可能になることを回避することができる。 Further, according to the cable 27 having a Renchotai 1, an RFID device 7 employed as a storage medium for storing information about the cable 27, the RFID device 7, the sheath 31 of the cable 27 is covered with since, progress and long period after the cable 27 laid by rubbing or the like at the time of installing the cable 27, and disappear or blurred information on cable 27, it is possible to avoid to become illegible. さらに、RFID素子7が、シース31で被覆されているので、たとえばケーブル27を設置するときにこのケーブル27に外力がかかっても、この外力がシース31で緩和され、上記RFID素子7が破損しにくくなる。 Furthermore, RFID element 7, because it is covered by the sheath 31, for example even if an external force is applied to the cable 27 when installing the cable 27, the external force is relaxed by the sheath 31, the RFID device 7 is broken It becomes Nikuku.
【0080】 [0080]
また、連長体1を備えたケーブル27によれば、パイプ状のシース31の肉厚部に、RFID素子7が埋め込まれていることはなく、シース31がこの長手方向でほぼ一様な形態になっているので、ケーブル27を、たとえば、設置や保守のために折り曲げても、シース31の肉厚部に応力集中が発生しにくく、したがって、上記設置や保守による折り曲げによって、ケーブル27のシース31が破損しにくくなる。 Further, according to the cable 27 having a Renchotai 1, the thick portion of the pipe-shaped sheath 31, never RFID element 7 is embedded, substantially uniform forms sheath 31. In this longitudinal since going on to the cable 27, for example, be bent for installation and maintenance, stress concentration hardly occurs in the thick portion of the sheath 31, therefore, by folding according to the installation and maintenance, the cable 27 sheath 31 is less likely to be damaged.
【0081】 [0081]
さらに、RFID素子7を、シース31の肉厚部内に設置するとすれば、高温で溶融している状態の、シース31の構成部材中にRFID素子7を挿入しなければならず、このときに、上記高温によってRFID素子7の機能が阻害されるおそれがあるが、ケーブル27では、シース31でケーブルコア29を被覆する場合、押え巻き43やパイプ状部材3が間に介在しているので、連長体1のRFID素子7が直接高温状態のシース31の構成部材にさらされることはなく、したがって、シース31を被覆するときにRFID素子7の機能が阻害されるおそれが少ない。 Furthermore, the RFID element 7, if installed in the wall thickness portion of the sheath 31, the state of being melted at a high temperature, it is necessary to insert the RFID element 7 in the components of the sheath 31, in this case, there is a possibility that the function of RFID element 7 is inhibited by the high temperature, but in the cable 27, when coating the cable core 29 in the sheath 31, since the pressing winding 43 and a pipe-like member 3 is interposed between, continuous never RFID element 7 Nagakarada 1 is exposed to components of the sheath 31 of the direct high-temperature conditions, therefore, there is little risk that the function of RFID element 7 is inhibited when covering the sheath 31.
【0082】 [0082]
また、ケーブルコア29にシース31を被覆する場合、断面がほぼ円形状のケーブルコア29に、断面が円環状のシース31を被覆すればよく、シース31の肉厚部内にRFID素子7を設ける必要はないので、上記被覆を容易に行うことができる。 Also, when coating sheath 31 to the cable core 29, the cable core 29 substantially circular cross section, it is sufficient cross section covering the annular sheath 31, providing an RFID element 7 in the thickness portion of the sheath 31 need since there is no, it is possible to easily the coating.
【0083】 [0083]
また、ケーブル27によれば、連長体1の長手方向に所定の間隔をあけて、各RFID素子7を設けているので、ケーブル27の長手方向の任意に位置で、ケーブル27に関する情報を取得することができる。 Further, according to the cable 27, at predetermined intervals in the longitudinal direction of Renchotai 1, since the respective RFID element 7 is provided, optionally, in position in the longitudinal direction of the cable 27, acquires information about the cable 27 can do. そして、ケーブル27がたとえばトラフ内に敷設されこのトラフに蓋がされ、さらにこのトラフが土砂の中に埋設されている場合でも、上記土砂を長い区間にわたって取り除くことなく、土砂の一部を取り除くだけで、上記ケーブル27の情報を読み取ることができ、上記土砂を取り除く工数を削減することができる。 Then, laid in the cable 27, for example, the trough lid is in the trough, even if it is further embedded the trough into the soil, without removing the sediment over a long period, remove some sediment only in, it is possible to read the information of the cable 27, it is possible to reduce the number of steps to remove the sediment.
【0084】 [0084]
なお、上記各RFID素子7の設置間隔は、RFID素子7に格納されている情報を、RFIDリーダが読み取り可能な距離に応じて決定すればよい。 Incidentally, the installation interval of each RFID device 7, the information stored in the RFID element 7 may be determined according to the distance readable RFID reader. たとえば、上記読み取り可能な距離が1mである場合に、各RFID素子7の設置間隔を1mにすれば、ケーブル27から0.87m(1m÷2×√3≒0.87m)以内の距離にRFIDリーダを近づければ、RFID素子7に格納されている情報を、上記RFIDリーダで読み取ることができる。 For example, if the readable distance is 1 m, if the installation intervals of the RFID element 7 to 1 m, 0.87 m from the cable 27 (1m ÷ 2 × √3 ≒ 0.87m) RFID within a distance of if brought close to the reader, the information stored in the RFID element 7, can be read by the RFID reader.
【0085】 [0085]
なお、上記各RFID素子7に格納されている、ケーブル27に関する情報は、連長体1の製造前に予め各RFID素子7に格納されていてもよいし、たとえば、図2に示す連長体製造装置9の移動手段23と第2格納手段17の間に、RFID素子7に情報を書き込み可能なRFIDライターを設置し、または、連長体製造装置9の通路25の近傍にRFIDライターを設置して、連長体1を製造するときに、ケーブル27に関する情報を、各RFID素子7に書き込んでもよい。 Incidentally, stored in each RFID device 7, information about the cable 27, may be stored in advance in the RFID element 7 before the production of Renchotai 1, for example, run-length body shown in FIG. 2 installed between the moving means 23 of the manufacturing apparatus 9 of the second storage unit 17 has established a RFID writer can be written information to the RFID device 7, or an RFID writer in the vicinity of the passage 25 of the run-length production apparatus 9 and, when producing Renchotai 1, information about the cable 27, it may be written to each RFID element 7. さらに、ケーブル27の敷設後、RFIDライターを用いて、各RFID素子7の情報を書き換えてもよい。 Further, after laying of the cable 27, by using the RFID writer may rewrite the information of each RFID element 7.
【0086】 [0086]
連長体1を備えたケーブル47によれば、ケーブル27とほぼ同様に、ケーブル47に関する情報を大量に格納でき、しかも、ケーブル47に関する情報を容易に読み取って表示することができる等の効果を奏する。 According to the cable 47 having a Renchotai 1, substantially in the same manner as the cable 27, can store information about the cable 47 in a large amount, moreover, the effect of such may be displayed by reading facilitates information about cable 47 unlikely to.

また、連長体63では、たとえば、上記パイプ状部材65は耐熱性樹脂で構成され、上記各RFID素子7は、両端部が半球状である円柱状に形成されている。 Further, the Renchotai 63, for example, the pipe-like member 65 is formed of a heat-resistant resin, each RFID element 7, both end portions are formed in a cylindrical shape is hemispherical.
【0093】 [0093]
連長体63の長手方向に沿って設けられた上記各スリット67の長さは、RFID素子7をパイプ状部材65の内部に挿入可能な長さであればよく、RFID素子7の長さよりも短くてもよいし長くてもよいしさらに同じ長さでもよい。 The length of each slit 67 provided along the longitudinal direction of the Renchotai 63, the RFID device 7 may be a insertable length inside the pipe-shaped member 65, than the length of the RFID element 7 may be further same length may be longer may be shortened. なお、短い場合でも、RFID素子7を斜めにすれば、上記パイプ状部材65内にRFID素子7を挿入することができる。 Even short case, if the RFID element 7 obliquely, it is possible to insert the RFID element 7 to the pipe-shaped member 65. また、粘着部71は、上記パイプ状部材65の内壁面全面に形成されていてもよいし、各RFID素子7を保持するために、各スリット67に対応する位置(各スリット67に一致する位置)のみに設けられていてもよい。 Also, the adhesive portion 71 may be formed on the inner wall surface over the entire surface of the pipe-shaped member 65, to hold the respective RFID element 7 corresponds to the position (the slits 67 corresponding to the slit 67 located ) it may be provided only to.
