Industrial Electronics : Applications for Programmable Controllers, Instrumentation & Process Control, and Electrical Machines & Motor
For courses in Industrial Electronics and Electronic Controls, in two-year technical and community colleges and in four-year engineering and engineering technology programs.The role of today's technician has changed as industries compete in the global marketplace-and students need a comprehensive industrial electronics text that will prepare them to work on every aspect of an industrial system. The most expansive and in-depth treatment currently available, Industrial Electronics, Second Edition, provides detailed applications for each device and circuit discussed. Students will learn how devices operate and are tested, along with the real-life application where they will find them. All material has been fully updated to reflect recent developments and rapid changes in the industry. Drawing on more than 20 years of industry experience, the author incorporates course material that he also uses in consulting practicing technicians and engineers at corporations such as Ford Motor Company and General Mills.
