Designer's Handbook Instrmtn/Contr CircuitsHere is a comprehensive, practical guide to the entire process of analog instrumentation and control, from sensor input to data conversion circuitry and final output. This readable handbook avoids complex mathematical treatments, instead taking an applicationsoriented approach and presenting many sample circuits and concrete examples. It is an essential reference for engineers and highlevel technicians in a variety of scientific and engineering fieldsanywhere data is collected electronically and where such data is used to control physical processes.
