Description

Electronic Measurement Systems: Theory and Practice, Second Edition is designed for those who require a thorough understanding of the wide variety of both digital and analogue electronic measurement systems in common use. The first part of the book discusses basic concepts such as system specification, architectures, structures, and components. Later chapters cover topics important for the proper functioning of systems including reliability, guarding/shielding, and noise. Finally, an unusual chapter treats the problems of the human aspects of the design of measurement systems. The book also includes problems and exercises.

New to the Second Edition

  • Extended section about signal structures, I/O bussystems, DAQ boards, and their architecture

  • User programmable devices (UPLD's) and the use of microprocessor principles in instrumentation

  • Novel approaches on reliability due to built-in testability becoming a major design feature

  • A brief introduction to the related physics of each transducer energy domain to understand what the principle of operation is

  • Discussion of the ADM method for drift elimination

  • Introduction to the European Electro Magnetic Compatibility legislation and the ISO 9000 system

  • Additional noise calculation techniques and noise in sensors

  • Chapter on autozeroing transducers and sensor interfacing, paying particular attention to bridge circuits for modulating transducers
  • Reviews

    "An excellent introduction to the design of analogue and digital measurement systems. Ideally suited to support undergraduate product design courses as well as a useful reference for all engineers."

    -ASLIB Book Guide

    "The book is well presented, with clear text, informative diagrams, and a short bibliography at the end of each chapter … contains much that will be of interest and use to the measurement engineer."

    -Measurement and Control

    "… an excellent addition to my bookshelf … since … it is a practitioner's reference book … also appropriate for both undergraduate and postgraduate students … to support their projects or research … A number of worked examples … makes the book practical and designer-oriented."

    -Contemporary Physics

    "… a comprehensive treatment of the considerations the experimentalist must make in designing, building, and evaluating electronic measurement systems … The ease of learning and understanding the material is enhanced by numerous worked-example problems that provide a practical application of difficult-to-understand concepts … a valuable reference book or handbook for scientists and engineers involved with the electronic collection and manipulation of data."
