Overview

This new edition continues to provide state-of-the-art coverage of the entire spectrum of industrial control, from servomechanisms to instrumentation. Material on the components, circuits, instruments, and control techniques used in today's industrial automated systems has been fully updated to include new information on thyristors and sensor interfacing and updated information on AC variable speed drives. Following an overview of an industrial control loop, readers may delve into individual sections that explore each element of the loop in detail. This logical format offers the flexibility needed to use the book effectively in a variety of courses, from electric motors to servomechanisms, programmable controllers, and more!

Terry L. M. Bartelt, Fox Valley Technical College.

Terry Bartelt is currently an Electromechanical Instructor at Fox Valley Technical College, with more than twenty five years teaching experience in the field. He was a National Science Foundation (NSF) Recipient for Process Control in 1997 and received another NSF grant in 2005 to develop multimedia materials covering industrial automation related topics. In addition, Mr. Bartelt's Electromechanical Technology Program was presented the Secretary of Education Award as one of the top ten community college programs in the country.
  • Provides completely up-to-date information on both motion and process control to ensure that the entire spectrum of industrial control is addressed
  • Employs a non-mathematical approach to enhance reader appeal without compromising on the depth or scope of topics covered
  • The programmable controller section uses the Allen-Bradley SLC-500 for greater consistency with equipment used in today's education and training programs
  • Content has been gleaned directly from industrial equipment technical literature, professional seminars, engineering consultants, and industrial schools to ensure its relevancy
  • Lab-Source CD in back of book includes free lab manual
