Modern Industrial Electronics : United States Edition
Core text for third/fourth-semester Electronic Technology courses in Industrial Electronics, Industrial Process Control, Industrial Machinery, and Industrial Automation.Unlike other technician-level texts, Modern Industrial Electronics doesn't limit its presentation to isolated devices or individual circuits, but strongly emphasizes the need for students to study and understand complete, real industrial systems as they exist in industry. It thoroughly examines a wide variety of systems-from PLCs to industrial robots-and includes a wealth of background information regarding the economic importance and/or environmental impact of the production process involved in the system. And, because things will go wrong in any real system, the text includes many opportunities throughout for students to practice determining probable causes for system failures, and deciding upon specific steps to take to correct the problems.
