About the book
An Introduction to Sensors and Instrumentations introduces the characteristics of common types of industrial sensors and transducers, highlights analysis of the operating principles and characteristics of several commonly used sensors and transducers, analog and digital signals and signal processing including various components and devices including the digital signal processing (DSP), transmission and telemetry systems, data display and analog and digital devices. The book further covers the most recent developments in Virtual instrumentation and in understanding factors that contribute to measurement errors which help determine and design appropriate measures to improve accuracy of the instruments to larger extent possible and describes to several specific types of electric measuring instruments used for the measurement of electrical quantities at the end.
The book is designed to serve the needs of the engineering students of instrumentation, chemical, mechanical, electronics and electrical disciplines. It will also be a useful for the students of applied sciences, industrial engineers, scientists, designers, managers and research personnel.
