  • Publication number: 20190199843
    Abstract: A transmitter modulates an input voice signal to transmit an RF signal. A receiver demodulates a received RF signal to output an output voice signal. A voice level comparator compares a level of an input voice signal obtained by collecting a voice by a microphone with a VOX sensitivity level. A transmission determination unit instructs the transmitter to transmit the input voice signal, when the level of the input voice signal is equal to or greater than the VOX sensitivity level, based on a comparison result by the voice level comparator. A VOX sensitivity level calculator calculates the VOX sensitivity level in a predetermined period until just before the receiver completes outputting the output voice signal, based on an ambient sound collected by the microphone.

  • Publication number: 20190179814
    Abstract: Control facilities and incidental facilities in fields are flexibly managed. Since identification information enabling to identify uniquely information regarding control facilities of which design timing and architectures are mutually different or facilities incidental to the control facilities is encoded, pieces of identification information are coupled and uniqueness is guaranteed. Further, a parent-child relation between identifiers is constructed and the identifiers are structured as a tree structure based on the structure of the control facilities. A control facility operation management device manages combination of the structured identifiers and information of management target or combination of the structured identification information and identification information of a database.
