A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO AUTOMATED PROCESS CONTROL AND MEASURMENT SYSTEMS Basic, clear, and concise, Fundamentals of Industrial Instrumentation and Process Control provides students with the perfect bridge between the theories and principles found in most textbooks and the practical knowledge gained on the factory floor. Drawing upon years of experience as an engineer and educator, William Dunn offers a practical and easy- to-use guide that meets the needs of technicians and engineers working or training in any process control function. The text provides a thorough exposition of electrical components -- both analog and digital -- pneumatics, actuators, and regulators and details their application to the industrial process. Each chapter is written in a clear, logically organized manner and contains an abundance of realistic problems, examples, and illustrations to challenge the students to think and encourage them to apply this fundamental body of knowledge to the solution of practical problems.
