In this text on electronic measurement and instrumentation, Dr. Klaassen concentrates on theoretical principles relevant to all measurements for electrical, thermal and mechanical systems. Dr. Klaassen follows a system science approach rather than employing the more common method of instrument description. The author deals with all the fundamental aspects of measurement, including theory of measurement, systems of units, standards, measurement methods, data acquisition, sampling, multiplexing and aliasing. He also covers more practical aspects of measurement, including transducers, interference, noise, AD and DA conversion and instrument data busses. This book is targeted at engineers and scientists in both industry and academia. It will be of particular interest to those active in the fields of electrical, mechanical and control engineering and will be widely used as a text for undergraduate courses.

Many texbooks on the topic of instrumentation age more quickly than a jar of cheap store-brand mayonaise left out in the hot midsummer sun. This work, however, is presented in a timeless fashion, and will never age. It is a superlative volume on the subject that belongs in any good technical library.Was this review helpful?
