Programmable Controllers: An Engineer's Guide focuses on the application and use of programmable controllers, including programming techniques, good software practices, and software engineering. The monograph first takes a look at computers and industrial control and programming techniques. Discussions focus on programming methods, bit storage, counters, timers, identification of input/output and bit addresses, input/output connections, types of control strategies, and advantages of PLC control. The manuscript then examines programming style and analog signals, closed loop control, and intelligent modules. Concerns include intelligent modules, specialist control processors, software engineering, program structure in various PLCs, and housekeeping and good software practices. The publication tackles practical aspects, industrial control with conventional computers, man-machine interface, and distributed systems. Topics include parallel and serial communications, ISO/OSI model, serial standards, simple digital control and indicators, computer graphics, maintenance and fault finding, and programming for real time control. The monograph is a valuable reference for computer science experts and researchers with a keen interest in programmable controllers.

The latest update to Bela Liptak's acclaimed "bible" of instrument engineering is now available. Retaining the format that made the previous editions bestsellers in their own right, the fourth edition of Process Control and Optimization continues the tradition of providing quick and easy access to highly practical information. The authors are practicing engineers, not theoretical people from academia, and their from-the-trenches advice has been repeatedly tested in real-life applications. Expanded coverage includes descriptions of overseas manufacturer's products and concepts, model-based optimization in control theory, new major inventions and innovations in control valves, and a full chapter devoted to safety. With more than 2000 graphs, figures, and tables, this all-inclusive encyclopedic volume replaces an entire library with one authoritative reference. The fourth edition brings the content of the previous editions completely up to date, incorporates the developments of the last decade, and broadens the horizons of the work from an American to a global perspective. Béla G. Lipták speaks on Post-Oil Energy Technology on the AT&T Tech Channel.

Hydraulics and Pneumatics: A Technician's and Engineer's Guide provides an introduction to the components and operation of a hydraulic or pneumatic system. This book discusses the main advantages and disadvantages of pneumatic or hydraulic systems. Organized into eight chapters, this book begins with an overview of industrial prime movers. This text then examines the three different types of positive displacement pump used in hydraulic systems, namely, gear pumps, vane pumps, and piston pumps. Other chapters consider the pressure in a hydraulic system, which can be quickly and easily controlled by devices such as unloading and pressure regulating valves. This book discusses as well the importance of control valves in pneumatic and hydraulic systems to regulate and direct the flow of fluid from compressor or pump to the various load devices. The final chapter deals with the safe-working practices of the systems. This book is a valuable resource for process control engineers.
