About

Overview

Designed for the "jack of all trades" technician, this unique book covers all five major areas of industrial maintenance knowledge -general, mechanical, electrical, welding, and preventive maintenance- in one complete volume! More than 700 photos and illustrations throughout complement the information that multi-crafted technicians need to know within each of these major subject areas. This book covers everything from basic information on safety, tools, industrial print reading and electrical theory to the inner workings of machinery and equipment so technicians can understand and effectively diagnose, troubleshoot, and provide preventive maintenance on industrial machines. Coverage is comprehensive in nature and is arranged in a modular format to make finding information quick and easy, making this an excellent reference for both the novice and the experienced technician.

Features and Benefits

  • safety and caution elements draw attention to important protection considerations and highlight the potential for danger in various situations on the job
  • "A Typical Day in Maintenance" features at the start of each section tie into the five major areas of industrial maintainance knowledge, introducing readers to common issues of problem-solving where they must first "check it out" to identify the problem, then �work it out� by answering questions that encourage critical thinking necessary for making real-world diagnoses
  • the corresponding Workbook provides "hands on" exercises and useful applications that facilitate learning and comprehension
  • an Instructor's Guide provides answers to review questions from the book, plus solutions to exercises in the Workbook
  • an e.resource contains PowerPoint materials, a computerized test bank, a library of images from the book, and sample course syllabus for each chapter

Industrial Electrical Troubleshooting  (ISBN-10: 0766806030 | ISBN-13: 9780766806030)

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.
