Description:

Instrumentation and Process Control is a technician-level approach to instrumentation and control techniques used in advanced manufacturing. The book is divided into two parts: Part 1, Instrumentation (Chapters 1 to 28) and Part 2, Process Control (Chapters 29 to 52). The content is organized in a logical sequence beginning with an introduction to the field of instrumentation and continuing through all the elements of a control system. Emphasis is placed on the fundamental scientific principles that underlie instrument operation. Applications are thoroughly illustrated, and informative tech facts and illustrative vignettes provide supplemental content throughout the book.
 
This edition offers the following instructional advantages:
• Technician-level approach to the field of instrumentation
• Twelve topics including instruments, digital communications, controls, design analyses, and applications
• Systems approach to integrating instruments into a complex system
• Comprehensive applications for instruments and controllers in typical industrial control systems
• Examples that show how to install instruments and protect them from damaging environmental conditions
