For courses in Industrial Electronics, Power Electronic Devices or Power Electronics, Instrumentation and Controls, Process Controls, Programmable Controllers, AC and DC Motors and Transformers (AC-DC Machines), Motor Controls, Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs), Servo and Stepper Systems, and Robotics and Robotic Interfacing.Based on the author's extensive experience teaching technicians directly on the factory floor in major industries, this text provides comprehensive, in-depth coverage of all of the electronic technology found in modern industrial systems, thus preparing students to install, troubleshoot and repair the industrial circuits they will actually encounter on the job. Unlike typical texts on Industrial Electronics-which do not go into the depth required to troubleshoot complex automation systems-this text takes those very complex automation systems and breaks down the individual electronic circuits and components that are found in each of them, enabling students to see how many of these circuits and components are used over and over in a large variety of circuits.
