Overview

ISA's best selling book on the fundamentals of measurement and control is now even better. Since 1988, Measurement and Control Basics has been used both as a textbook for measurement and control courses and for self-study by hundreds of professionals. By using an intuitive approach supported with basic definitions and mathematical concepts, readers become well-versed in the principles necessary to understand the various variables that affect process control systems.

The text introduces process and instrument drawings to illustrate concepts. A handy appendix outlines standard graphic symbols used in P&IDs. Chapters review electronic and digital logic fundamentals, analytical measurement, and final control elements such as control valves, motors, and pumps. New material added to this second edition includes mathematics review, control loop tuning, expanded coverage of control loops and measurement variables, basic electrical principles and design, and new or improved examples.
