A comprehensive introduction to electromechanical devices and their underlying principles of operation, one that gives students the unified treatment of mechanical and electrical topics so much in demand in today's workplace. Practical, hands-on information related to operating, installing, troubleshooting, and servicing a wide range of electromechanical systems is presented. Graded, self-paced chapters progress through mechanical, electrical, and magnetic concepts and principles; to their actual applications in a wide range of electromechanical devices. Numerous examples are presented throughout the text, together with a wealth of problem-solving techniques.
Features and Benefits
the first text to offer the integrated, unified treatment of mechanical and electrical topics needed by the modern technician who must be able to handle more than one area of technology.
comprehensive coverage includes electromechanical basics such as transformers, stepper motors, and DC and AC motors, as well as sequential process control.
the use of practical design and replacement problems throughout the text is a strong motivator for learners.
includes a review of number notation, systems of measurement, and conversion between and within measuring systems for students without previous mechanical training.
coverage assumes no math background beyond elementary algebra making it suitable for technology students.
all chapters include questions and word problems to help tie chapter content together.

This book provides a comprehensive examination of mechanical and electrical machine elements, as well as their underlying principles of operation. It is intended for technicians, maintenance mechanics, electricians, and manufacturing engineers.
The book provides the knowledge base needed to understand the principles, concepts, and applications of electromechanics. Furthermore, it presents problem-solving techniques that will aid technicians in real-world trouble shooting situations.
As the title implies, Electromechanics: Principles, Concepts, and Devices begins with the basic notions of numbers and units of measure, the nature of motion, simple and compound machines, and the physics of work, energy, torque, and power. From there, chapters progress into more complex concepts of power transmission and motion devices, electric circuits, electromagnetic circuits and devices, transformers and power distribution, overcurrent protection, sequential process control, and ac and do electric motors.
A new chapter 16, "Concepts of Automated Control Systems," covers cutting-edge technology that technicians need to know to prepare for tomorrow's workplace. The book concludes with a technical terms glossary and appendixes featuring reference tables, common symbols, and an overview of maintenance procedures for electromechanical devices and components.
