Industrial Instrumentation : Principles and Design, Paperback / softback Book

Industrial Instrumentation : Principles and Design Paperback / softback


Pneumatic, hydraulic and allied instrumentation schemes have given way to electronic schemes in recent years thanks to the rapid strides in electronics and allied areas.

Principles, design and applications of such state-of-the-art instrumentation schemes form the subject matter of this book.

Through representative examples, the basic building blocks of instrumentation schemes are identified and each of these building blocks discussed in terms of its design and interface characteristics.

The common generic schemes synthesized with such building blocks are dealt with subsequently.

This forms the scope of Part I. The focus in Part II is on application. Displacement and allied instrumentation, force and allied instrumentation and process instrumentation in terms of temperature, flow, pressure level and other common process variables are dealt with separately and exhaustively.

Despite the diversity in the sensor principles and characteristics and the variety in the applications and their environments, it is possible judiciously to carve out broad areas of application for each type of sensor and the instrumentation built around it.

The last chapter categorises instrumentation schemes according to their different levels of complexity.

Specific practical examples - especially at involved complexity levels - are discussed in detail.
