Advanced microprocessor techniques have had an enormous impact on the the electronics used in electronic weighing and data handling systems. Despite this, and the fact that electronic weighing is now vital to such a wide range of industries, it is not recognised as an independent discipline in higher education, and there is little published literature on the subject. Written by a world authority, this book, essentially practical in treatment, contains many photographs of actual equipment and diagrams illustrating the principles involved. It gives engineers and managers in the food, chemical, steel and other concerned industries an awareness of the basic technology, an appreciation of the range of its applications, and an understanding of the performance that can be exptected from it.
