【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紐状の部材であるものに関する。 The present invention relates a multiple of an RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) device, in the longitudinal direction of the elongated member, run-length body that is constituted by spaced, in the run-length body formed cable, in particular , on what the elongate member is a string-like 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 with the passage of time information in the tag, the unreadable disappear or hoarse there is a problem in that if there is to be.
【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 ).

【発明が解決しようとする課題】 [Problems that the Invention is to Solve
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 It aims to fear installation in smaller cables and the cables that provides easy run-length body.

このようにして、連長体1は、ケーブルコア71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 71.
【0067】 [0067]
なお、上記各光ファイバコード79や上記連長体1は、ケーブル25の場合と同様に、ケーブル69の長手方向に僅かに捻れて延伸している。 Each of the above optical fiber cord 79 and said run-length body 1, as in the case of cable 25, which extends slightly twisted in the longitudinal direction of the cable 69.

また、押え巻き81がされたケーブルコア71の外側は、長手方向の断面が円環状のシース73で被覆されている。 Also, outside of the cable core 71 which presser winding 81 is the longitudinal cross-section is covered with an annular sheath 73. なお、上記シース73は、シース29等とほぼ同様に、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 73 is substantially similar to the sheath 29 or the like, for example, polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride, non-halogen flame retardant, or are composed of eco material or the like.
【0069】 [0069]
なお、ケーブル25やケーブル39は、ケーブルコアの外形に対して連長体1の外形が十分に小さい場合の実施形態であり、ケーブルコアの外形に対して連長体1の外形が十分に小さくはない場合には、ケーブル53やケーブル69のような実施形態にすることが望ましい。 Incidentally, cable 25 and cable 39 is an embodiment where the outer shape of the run-length body 1 with respect to the outer shape of the cable core is sufficiently small, the outer shape of the run-length body 1 is sufficiently smaller than the outer shape of the cable core If not, it is desirable to embodiments such as a cable 53 and cable 69.
【0070】 [0070]
連長体1によれば、紐状の保持部材3の長手方向に間隔をあけて、複数のRFID素子5が配置されて固定されており、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5を上記ケーブルの長手方向に間隔をあけて設けるときの作業が容易になる。 According to Renchotai 1, at intervals in the longitudinal direction of the cord-like holding member 3, a plurality of RFID elements 5 are fixedly arranged, Renchotai 1 is integrally formed to be longer since, aligned with each other and the longitudinal direction of the longitudinal and cable Renchotai 1, the Renchotai 1 makes it easy to provide integrated cable core of the cable, each RFID element 5 longitudinally of the cable It facilitates work when providing spaced direction.
【0071】 [0071]
また、連長体1によれば、ケーブルに一般的に使用されている引き裂き紐を保持部材として使用することができるので、連長体1を製造するために専用の保持部材を製造する必要がなく、さらに、上記引き裂き紐に接着剤で各RFID素子5を固定しているので、連長体1の製造が容易である。 Further, according to Renchotai 1, because it can be used as a holding member of the string tear are commonly used in the cable, it is necessary to produce a dedicated holding member to produce a Renchotai 1 no further, since securing each RFID element 5 by an adhesive to the tear cord, it is easy to manufacture the Renchotai 1.
【0072】 [0072]
連長体1を備えたケーブル25によれば、ケーブル25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25の外皮(シースの外周面)への印字またはケーブル25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25に関する情報を格納(表示)するよりも、大量の情報を格納でき、しかも、ケーブル25の外皮を露出させずに、RFID素子5の情報を読み取り表示可能なRFIDリーダをケーブル25に近づけるだけで、RFID素子5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 25 having a Renchotai 1, because it uses an RFID element as a storage medium for storing information about the cable 25, the printing or cable to the outer skin of the cable 25 (the outer peripheral surface of the sheath) 25 by pasting and hanging tags tags to, storing information about the cable 25 (display) than that, can store a large amount of information, yet, without exposing the skin of the cable 25, the information of the RFID element 5 the read viewable RFID reader only close to the cable 25, can be information stored in the RFID element 5 displays read in an RFID reader. つまり、ケーブル25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 25.
【0073】 [0073]
また、連長体1を備えたケーブル25によれば、ケーブル25に関する情報を記憶している記憶媒体としてRFID素子5を採用し、このRFID素子5を、ケーブル25のシース29が被覆しているので、ケーブル25敷設後の長い期間の経過や、ケーブル25を設置するときの擦り等によって、ケーブル25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 25 having a Renchotai 1, it employs a RFID element 5 as a storage medium for storing information about the cable 25, the RFID device 5, the sheath 29 of the cable 25 is covered with since, progress and long period after the cable 25 laid by rubbing or the like at the time of installing the cable 25, and disappear or blurred information on cable 25, it is possible to avoid to become illegible. また、RFID素子5が、シース29で被覆されているので、たとえばケーブル25を設置するときにこのケーブル25に外力がかかっても、この外力がシース29で緩和され、上記RFID素子5が破損しにくくなる。 Further, RFID device 5, since it is covered by the sheath 29, for example even if an external force is applied to the cable 25 when installing the cable 25, the external force is relaxed by the sheath 29, the RFID device 5 is broken It becomes Nikuku.
【0074】 [0074]
また、連長体1を備えたケーブル25によれば、パイプ状のシース29の肉厚部に、RFID素子5が埋め込まれていることはなく、シース29がこの長手方向にほぼ一様な形態になっているので、ケーブル25を、たとえば、設置や保守のために折り曲げても、シース29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25のシース29が破損しにくくなる。 Further, according to the cable 25 having a Renchotai 1, the thick portion of the pipe-shaped sheath 29, never RFID element 5 is embedded, a sheath 29 is substantially uniform form the longitudinal since going on to the cable 25, for example, be bent for installation and maintenance, stress concentration hardly occurs in the thick portion of the sheath 29, therefore, by folding according to the installation and maintenance, the cable 25 sheath 29 is less likely to be damaged.
【0075】 [0075]
また、RFID素子5を、シース29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29の構成部材中にRFID素子5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5の機能が阻害されるおそれがあるが、ケーブル25では、シース29でケーブルコア27を被覆する場合、押え巻き37が間に介在しているので、連長体1のRFID素子5が直接高温状態のシース29の構成部材にさらされることはなく、したがって、シース29を被覆するときにRFID素子5の機能が阻害されるおそれが少ない。 Further, the RFID element 5, if installed in the wall thickness portion of the sheath 29, the state of being melted at a high temperature, it is necessary to insert the RFID element 5 in the components of the sheath 29, in this case, there is a possibility that the function of RFID element 5 is inhibited by the high temperature, but in the cable 25, when coating the cable core 27 in the sheath 29, since the pressing winding 37 is interposed between, the Renchotai 1 RFID never element 5 is exposed to components of the sheath 29 of the direct high-temperature conditions, therefore, there is little risk that the function of RFID element 5 is inhibited when covering the sheath 29.
【0076】 [0076]
また、ケーブルコア27にシース29を被覆する場合、断面がほぼ円形状のケーブルコア27に、断面が円環状のシース29を被覆すればよく、シース29の肉厚部内にRFID素子5を設ける必要がないので、上記被覆を容易に行うことができる。 Also, when coating sheath 29 to the cable core 27, the cross-section substantially circular shape of the cable core 27, it is sufficient cross section covering the annular sheath 29, providing an RFID element 5 in the thickness portion of the sheath 29 need since there is no, it is possible to easily perform the coating.
【0077】 [0077]
また、ケーブル25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5を設けているので、ケーブル25の長手方向の任意の位置で、ケーブル25に関する情報(たとえば、ケーブル25を識別するための方法)を取得することができる。 Further, according to the cable 25, at predetermined intervals in the longitudinal direction of Renchotai 1, since there is provided a respective RFID element 5, at an arbitrary position in the longitudinal direction of the cable 25, the information about the cable 25 (e.g. , it is possible to obtain the method) to identify the cable 25. そして、ケーブル25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25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, the cable 25 the lid is in the trough is laid, for example 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 25, it is possible to reduce the number of steps to remove the sediment.
【0078】 [0078]
なお、上記各RFID素子5の設置間隔は、RFID素子5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。 The above installation interval of the RFID element 5, the information stored in the RFID element 5 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5の設置間隔を1mにすれば、ケーブル25から0.87m(1m÷2×√3≒0.87m)以内の距離にRFIDリーダを近づけると、RFID素子5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, RFID if the readable distance is 1 m, if the installation interval of the RFID element 5 to 1 m, the distance from the cable 25 0.87 m within (1m ÷ 2 × √3 ≒ 0.87m) When brought close to the reader, the information stored in the RFID element 5 can be read by the RFID reader.
【0079】 [0079]
なお、上記各RFID素子5に格納されている、ケーブル25に関する情報は、連長体1の製造前に予め各RFID素子5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7のRFID素子格納手段13と第2格納手段17との間に、RFID素子5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7の通路23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25に関する情報を、各RFID素子5に書き込んでもよい。 Incidentally, stored in each RFID device 5, information about the cable 25 may be stored in advance in the RFID element 5 prior to manufacture of Renchotai 1, for example, run-length body shown in FIG. 2 between the RFID element storage unit 13 of the manufacturing apparatus 7 and the second storage unit 17 has established a RFID writer can be written information to the RFID element 5, or, RFID in the vicinity of the run-length manufacturing equipment 7 passage 23 by installing a writer, when producing Renchotai 1, information about the cable 25, it may be written to each RFID device 5. さらに、ケーブル25の敷設後、RFIDライターを用いて、各RFID素子5の情報を書き換えてもよい。 Further, after laying of the cable 25, by using the RFID writer may rewrite the information of each RFID device 5.
【0080】 [0080]
連長体1を備えた各ケーブル39、53、69によれば、各ケーブル39、53、69に関する情報を大量に格納でき、しかも、各ケーブル39、53、69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、ケーブル25が備える効果とほぼ同様な効果を備える。 According to each cable 39,53,69 having a Renchotai 1 can store information about each cable 39,53,69 large amount, moreover, the display reads to facilitate information about each cable 39,53,69 etc. can be provided with substantially the same effects as the cable 25 is provided.
【0081】 [0081]
また、各ケーブル39、53、69において、ケーブル25と同様に、連長体1の長手方向に所定の間隔をあけて、各RFID素子5を設けているので、各ケーブル39、53、69の長手方向の任意の位置で、各ケーブル39、53、69に関する情報を取得することができる。 In each cable 39,53,69, like the cable 25, at predetermined intervals in the longitudinal direction of Renchotai 1, since there is provided a respective RFID elements 5, each cable 39,53,69 at any position in the longitudinal direction, it is possible to obtain information about each cable 39,53,69.
【0082】 [0082]
なお、上記各RFID素子5の設置間隔は、ケーブル25と同様に決定すればよい。 The above installation interval of the RFID element 5 may be determined in the same manner as the cable 25.
【0083】 [0083]
また、上記各RFID素子5に格納されている、各ケーブル39、53、69に関する情報も、ケーブル25の場合と同様に書き込むことができる。 Furthermore, stored in each RFID device 5, also information about each cable 39,53,69, it can be written as in the case of cable 25.
