Abstract : The report describes a method for the conversion of data recorded by the Aanderaa or Plessey recording current meter to a computer compatible format. The computer interface described is part of a conversion system which converts the data to industry compatible magnetic tape. The system as a whole is not described because the interface, with slight modifications, will work with any standard computer input. (Author)
