Fundamentals of industrial instrumentation and process control

Author: William Dunn
Publisher: New York : McGraw-Hill, 2005.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
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  Read more...
