1 Review
Reflecting the transition from largely manual manufacturing methods to sophisticated automated procedures, the second edition of this text provides an updated guide to devices and automated systems - revealing developments in solid-state electronics, microminiaturization, computers, microprocessors, programmable controllers, and robotics.;The text examines automation procedures commonly used in manufacturing operations, including time, light, electrical power, numerical information, temperature, motion, weight, conductivity, viscosity, and pressure. It also presents presents detailed coverage of: the function of a load device in electrical power conversion; the difference between analog and digital quantities; controlling a manufacturing operation through timing mechanisms; the transmission path of an optoelectronic systems; open- and closed-loop motion control; devices used to achieve motion; major components of an industrial robot; applying systems concepts to temperature systems; and the effect of a microprocessor in industry logic.;Advocating better product quality and more economical production, Industrial Electronics is a practical, desk-top reference for industrial, electrical and electronics, computer, and optical engineers, and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
