9780130156761: Modern Industrial Electronics

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.

From the Back Cover:

This classic industrial electronics text is intended to be the core text for third- or fourth-semester electronic technology courses in industrial Electronics, industrial Process Control, Industrial Machinery, and Industrial Automation. Unlike other technician-level texts, Modern Industrial Electronics does not limit its presentation to isolated devices or individual circuits, but strongly emphasizes the need for students to study and understand actual and complete industrial systems.

Now in its fifth edition, this highly successful book continues to provide complete and up-to-date information. It thoroughly examines a wide variety of systems—from transistor switches to industrial robots—and discusses such issues as the economic importance and/or environmental impact of the production process. Because the author adopts the logical view that things will go wrong in any real system, he ensures that students have plenty of opportunities throughout the book to determine probable causes and corrections for system failures. The "Troubleshooting on the job" section is a critical component of every chapter. Discussion has been expanded on the topic of electrical and magnetic noise in electronic measurement/transmission systems, and on shielding techniques for coping with it. The current-loop approach to signal transmission is explained and contrasted with voltage transmission. Some of the PLC program logic of this book is moderately complex, representative of actual industrial control processes; this is unlike the artificially simple logic o f other industrial texts. In the fifth edition such coverage is pushed further yet; to include program branching and subroutine applications.

An instructor's manual (ISBN o-i3-048142-z) accompanies this text and is available free of char a to instructors using this book.
