This time- and course-tested book has proven effective in teaching readers about electricity and electronics in industrial measurement and control. It is designed to be student-centered, focusing on practical applications. Even when covering mathematical and algebraic concepts, the explanations are clear and easy to comprehend without relying on complex operations or mathematics. However, a basic understanding of mathematics is necessary to fully comprehend and apply the content.
Safety is a top priority, and the book provides careful guidance for safely and successfully measuring electrical quantities. It also thoroughly explains the applications for and how to use digital and analog meters, bridges, power supplies, solid-state circuitry, oscilloscopes, and analog-to-digital converters.
In addition to expanding the topics covered in the previous edition, the fourth edition comes with a lab workbook that further aids readers in absorbing the material by including exercises that simulate real-applications in vocational, industrial, and occupational areas. Together, the textbook and workbook will enhance student success in any basic technician training course.
