The telemetric and data acquisition system is an inherent part of the total environmental monitoring system of the Paks Nuclear Power Station (Hungary). The detectors of the telemetric system measure the following parameters: the gamma dose rates, the time integral of the131I activity concentration, the water temperature, and the meterological data needed for dispersion calculations.

In the 48 channels of the central acquisition system the data mentioned above are stored in the form of pulses, with the exception of the wind direction, which is characterized by the most frequent direction during the measuring period (one hour or 6 minutes). The results are printed on a telex writer and punched on tape for further computer analysis.

The paper deals with the characteristic features of the system and with the possible uses of the data obtained, both for normal operation and emergency cases.
