Industrial Electrical Troubleshooting 1st Edition

Lynn Lundquist

  • Published
  • 384 Pages

Overview

Industrial Electrical Troubleshooting demonstrates the efficient use of certain electrical meters to troubleshoot relay-logic circuits with a single setting. Today, a generation of electronic meters is available to test voltage and continuity without changing the setting of the meter or de-energizing the circuit. Careful attention has been given to safety procedures throughout the book. Traditional troubleshooting techniques have not kept pace with this equipment though. Instructors and students will find comprehensive and up-to-date information for safely and efficiently locating problems and then troubleshooting online. Multimeters, clamp-on meters, ammeters, megohmmeters, proximity voltage meters, hand-held oscilloscopes and other meters are thoroughly discussed as plant electrical troubleshooting tools.
