|Description||This is an introduction to the different types of instruments that are used in industry to measure parameters such as temperature, pressure, fluid flow, weight, pH, etc. Both static and dynamic characteristics of instruments are also|
investigated. Conditioning of raw signals from transducers is investigated to show how non-linearities can be removed and how signals are converted into more usable forms. The application, but not the theory, of analogue to digital
conversion is examined and applied to show that an entire measurement system needs some sort of display or recording device at one end. Transmission of instrument signals in a modern industrial facility is also investigated.
