This new edition continues to provide state-of-the-art coverage of the entire spectrum of industrial control, from servomechanisms to instrumentation. Material on the components, circuits, instruments, and control techniques used in todays industrial automated systems has been fully updated to include new information on thyristors and sensor interfacing and updated information on AC variable speed drives. Following an overview of an industrial control loop, readers may delve into individual sections that explore each element of the loop in detail. This logical format offers the flexibility needed to use the book effectively in a variety of courses, from electric motors to servomechanisms, programmable controllers, and more!
provides completely up-to-date information on both motion and process control to ensure that the entire spectrum of industrial control is addressed
employs a non-mathematical approach to enhance reader appeal without compromising on the depth or scope of topics covered
the programmable controller section uses the Allen-Bradley SLC-500 for greater consistency with equipment used in today's education and training programs
content has been gleaned directly from industrial equipment technical literature, professional seminars, engineering consultants, and industrial schools to ensure its relevancy
Lab-Source CD in back of book includes free lab manual

A Descriptive Non-mathematical Approach
Intended for use in an electronics based industrial/manufacturing course, this is an introductory text on process control. It stresses a hands-on operational approach rather than concentrating on mathematical design. The 24 chapters (including one chapter on the CD) can be conbined in various ways to teach courses in several areas including: electrical motors, solid-state variable-speed drives, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), servomechanisms, sensors, and various specialty areas such as instrumentation or process control.
In the PLC area, the Allen-Bradley SLC-500 is used for examples. This provides a consistency with the equipment used in today's education and training program.
In addition to the chapter on practical applications, the CD that comes with the book also includes a lab manual so the student does not need to purchase another book. The publisher also provides additional material related to this title on their web site, however as of yet the on-line material still refers to the second edition rather than to this new third.
This book is well thought out, it's approach is sound. Very little mathematics are used in the book, it is more of a descriptive, hands on book.
