Here 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 applications-oriented approach and presenting many sample circuits and concrete examples. It is an essential reference for engineers and high-level technicians in a variety of scientific and engineering fields--anywhere data is collected electronically and where such data is used to control physical processes. Key Features * Covers design of instrumentation, control systems, and data acquisition circuits * Explains standard devices and techniques in a convenient, well-organized format * Takes an applications-oriented approach, rather than a theoretical one... 196 Sampling frequency, 35a36 Sampling process, 36 Sawtooth generator, 435 ff, 440a441, 535 Sawtooth waveform, 20 Scale factor, 107 Schmitt trigger, 437, 529, 556 SCR crowbar circuit, 610 813-555, 514 Seebeck effect, 410 Self heating, ... 17, 27, 28 Silverasilver chloride, 151, 155 Sine wave, 20 Sine-wave oscillator, 446 variable, 447 Single DC supply operation, 205 Single-point grounding, anbsp;...
