This text offers comprehensive coverage of electronic instruments and electronics-aided measurements, highlighting the essential components of digital electronic instrumentation and the principles involved in electrical and electronic measurement processes. It also explains the stages involved in data acquisition systems for acquiring, manipulating, processing, storing, displaying and interpreting the sought-for data. The principal instruments presented in this book include cathode ray oscilloscope (CRO), analyzers, signal generators, oscillators, frequency synthesizers, sweep generators, function generators and attenuators. Besides, the book covers several laboratory meters such as phase meters, frequency meters, Q-meters, wattmeters, energy meters, power factor meters, and measurement bridges. Also included are a few important sensors and transducers which are used in the measurement of temperature, pressure, flow rate, liquid level, force, etc. The book also emphasizes the growing use of fibre optic instrumentation. It explains some typical fibre optic sensing systems including the fibre optic gyroscope. Some applications of optical fibre in biomedical area are described as well. The book is intended for a course on Electronic Measurements and Instrumentation prescribed for B.E./B.Tech. students of Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering, Electronics and Control Engineering, and Electronics and Computer Engineering. It will also be a useful book for diploma level students pursuing courses in electrical/electronics/instrumentation disciplines. A variety of worked-out examples and exercises serve to illustrate and test the understanding of the underlying concepts and principles. ADDITIONAL FEATURES • Provides the essential background knowledge concerning the principles of analogue and digital electronics • Conventional techniques of measurement of electrical quantities are also presented • Shielding, grounding and EMI aspects of instrumentation are highlighted • Units, dimensions, standards, measurement errors and error analysis are dealt with in the appendices • Techniques of automated test and measurement systems are briefly discussed in an appendix

Pneumatic, hydraulic and allied instrumentation schemes have given way to electronic schemes in recent years thanks to the rapid strides in electronics and allied areas. Principles, design and applications of such state-of-the-art instrumentation schemes form the subject matter of this book. Through representative examples, the basic building blocks of instrumentation schemes are identified and each of these building blocks discussed in terms of its design and interface characteristics. The common generic schemes synthesized with such building blocks are dealt with subsequently. This forms the scope of Part I. The focus in Part II is on application. Displacement and allied instrumentation, force and allied instrumentation and process instrumentation in terms of temperature, flow, pressure level and other common process variables are dealt with separately and exhaustively. Despite the diversity in the sensor principles and characteristics and the variety in the applications and their environments, it is possible judiciously to carve out broad areas of application for each type of sensor and the instrumentation built around it. The last chapter categorises instrumentation schemes according to their different levels of complexity. Specific practical examples - especially at involved complexity levels - are discussed in detail.

Electronics for Scientists provides comprehensive coverage of a vital part of modern science courses. This book will give students and experimentalists a thorough knowledge of the concepts involved and their applications to practical situations. The text is graded into three parts, and is illustrated with line diagrams, plots from circuit simulators and photographs from oscilloscope traces. Part One assumes very little prior knowledge of electronics and provides a foundation for the book. Recognising that in the fast-moving electronic instrumentation industry, most instruments have a market lifetime of only a few years, in Parts 2 and 3, descriptions of specific circuits are deliberately avoided. Instead the 'electronic building blocks' approach is adopted, so that any instrument, old or brand new, can be analysed on a functional basis. Electronics for Scientists will be essential reading for all undergraduate science students and experimentalists using commercially available electronic instruments or innovating their own instruments for specific applications.

Designing an experiment to be performed in space involves highly complex techniques. There are considerable constraints, such as finding materials that are 'spaceworthy', limits on power, cost and manpower. This book provides a clear and comprehensive account of the techniques involved. Beginning with a chapter introducing the basic principles of designing for the space environment, following chapters discuss core elements of des ign including the problems that are frequently encountered in the testing and verification of spacecraft subsystems. Important topics are described including stress analysis, mechanisms and project management. A final chapter looks towards future developments of space instrument design. Worked examples are found throughout the text.
