Product description

From the Back Cover

Sensors for Measurement and Control provides a comprehensive and practical introduction to the increasingly important topic of sensor technology. It also serves as an extensive reference to sensors and their applications. The book introduces the concept of sensors, and measurement and control systems, their principles of operation and their applications.
The book covers the principles and applications of over 50 sensors, including their design, construction and principles of operation, and gives practical examples of where they may be used. Extensive use of clear diagrams and typical sensor specifications is made to illustrate and aid comprehension of the topics covered. Mathematics is kept to a minimum and further chapters cover the display and recording of sensor output, including the use of computers, and also how the outputs from sensors may have to be altered.
A structured series of laboratory assignments which put the previous theory into practice are also described. They may be performed on available industrial devices but can be most readily and conveniently performed with the TecQuipment Sensors and Instrumentation System, which combines the latest computer interactivity with real hands-on experimentation. Each assignment describes the aims of the experiment, the equipment and facilities required, and the hardware layout (showing connections and any external sources and necessary instruments). The experimental procedure, along with advice on presentation of results and some questions to help develop conclusions.

forms part of a complete teaching/learning system comprising textbook, CD-ROM and hardware
over 50 types of sensors are described and illustrated
covers sensors by variable to be measured rather than components of measurement systems
highlights key facts and fully explains terminology throughout
incorporates sample calculations and questions for further discussion
Sensors for Measurement and Control provides a practical solution to the teaching and study of instrumentation and control from Advanced GNVQ through to first-year undergraduate level. It also serves as an open learning program and reference source for mechanics, technicians and engineers in industry.
Peter Elgar is Senior Technical Author with TecQuipment Ltd, a leading provider of educational technical teaching equipment.
