Abstract
(EN)
Library equipment in which a recording medium transferred from a transferring device is loaded in a recording/reproducing position in a recording/reproducing device always after the transferring device moves in a position apart from the recording/reproducing device by transmitting necessary information between the recording/reproducing device and the transferring device, and in which necessary information is transmitted between the recording/reproducing device and the transferring device without increasing the load of a recording controlling device for controlling the recording/reproducing device and the transferring device. The equipement is provided with a storage (51) for storing a large number of recording media, a recording/reproducing device (52) for recording and reproducing information in a recording medium, a transferring device (53) for transferring the recording medium between the storage (51) and the recording/reproducing device (52), a recording controlling device (54) for controlling the library equipment (20) as a whole, and communication means (55) for transmitting instructions between the recording/reproducing device (52) and the transferring device (53). The recording/reproducing device (52) and the transferring device (53) transmit information representing their operating states to each other, and they execute processings in accordance with the received information. Thus the library equipment does not increase the load of the recording controlling device (54) and can make rapid and reliable loading, exclusion and storage of the recording medium.

Dans l'équipement de bibliothèque décrit, un support d'enregistrement transféré par un dispositif de transfert est chargé en position d'enregistrement/de lecture dans un dispositif d'enregistrement/de lecture, toujours après que le dispositif de transfert s'est déplacé dans une position éloignée du dispositif d'enregistrement/de lecture par transmission des informations nécessaires entre le dispositif d'enregistrement/de lecture et le dispositif de transfert, et les informations nécessaires sont transférées entre le dispositif d'enregistrement/de lecture et le dispositif de transfert sans accroissement de la charge d'un dispositif de commande d'enregistrement commandant le dispositif d'enregistrement/de lecture et le dispositif de transfert. L'équipement est pourvu d'un magasin (51) permettant de stocker un grand nombre de supports d'enregistrement, d'un dispositif d'enregistrement/de lecture (52) permettant l'enregistrement et la lecture d'informations dans un support d'enregistrement, d'un dispositif de transfert (53) servant à transférer le support d'enregistrement entre le magasin (51) et le dispositif d'enregistrement/de lecture (52), d'un dispositif de commande d'enregistrement (54) commandant l'équipement de bibliothèque (20) dans son ensemble, et d'un organe de communication (55) servant à la transmission d'instructions entre le dispositif d'enregistrement/de lecture (52) et le dispositif de transfert (53). Le dispositif d'enregistrement/de lecture (52) et le dispositif de transfert (53) se transmettent entre eux les informations relatives à leurs états opérationnels et exécutent des opérations de traitement en fonction des informations reçues. Ainsi, l'équipement de bibliothèque n'entraîne pas un accroissement de la charge du dispositif de commande d'enregistrement (54) et permet d'effectuer rapidement et de façon fiable les opérations de chargement, d'exclusion et de stockage du support d'enregistrement.
