This clearly written text provides an in-depth treatment of topics in industrial electronics, encompassing detailed applications for each electronic device and circuit discussed. The text thoroughly examines a wide variety of solid-state and logic devices used in industrial electronic circuits, including programmable controllers, servo-amplifiers, operational amplifiers, sensors and instruments used in the manufacturing and process industry, robots, and CNC machines. The final chapter provides a study of data communications used in modern industrial applications such as linking programmable controllers, robots, and other automated systems to computer networks to pass data. Additionally, four complete real industrial systems are studied to show students how all the devices and components operate together. Each chapter includes examples of the numerous control circuits and systems to help students become better pre-pared to install, calibrate, troubleshoot, and repair industrial electronic compo-nents, circuits, and automated systems. This fully updated third edition with several pedagogic aids is an ideal text for use by both degree and diploma level students of electrical, electronics, and instrumentation disciplines.
