Instrumentation technicians work on pneumatics, electronic instruments, digital logic devices and computer-based process controls. Because so much of their work involves computerized devices, they need an extensive knowledge of electronics, and most have degrees in electronics technology. Most textbooks in this area are written for four year institutions and lack the practical flavor that is needed in technical schools or community colleges. Designed as a text for use in community colleges or vocational schools, this up to date text is unsurpassed in its treatment of such subjects as: instruments and parameters, electrical components(both analog and digital) various types of actuators and regulators, plumbing and instrumentation diagrams and Operation of process controllers.

From the Back Cover:

A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO AUTOMATED PROCESS CONTROL AND MEASURMENT SYSTEMS

Basic, clear, and concise, Fundamentals of Industrial Instrumentation and Process Control provides students with the perfect bridge between the theories and principles found in most textbooks and the practical knowledge gained on the factory floor. Drawing upon years of experience as an engineer and educator, William Dunn offers a practical and easy- to-use guide that meets the needs of technicians and engineers working or training in any process control function.

The text provides a thorough exposition of electrical components -- both analog and digital -- pneumatics, actuators, and regulators and details their application to the industrial process. Each chapter is written in a clear, logically organized manner and contains an abundance of realistic problems, examples, and illustrations to challenge the students to think and encourage them to apply this fundamental body of knowledge to the solution of practical problems.

Fundamentals of Industrial Instrumentation and Process Control features:

  • Practical perspectives on pneumatics, electronic instruments, and digital logic devices
  • Fundamental electrical components and digital signaling and transmission
  • Inside-the-device explanations of all major types of sensors and actuators
  • Both English and metric units
