The Industrial Control Handbook has become a
standard reference work for practicing engineers-and unlike many reference
works it really is used! If you are a maintenance engineer trying to solve a
problem the Industrial Control Handbook could save you from mental meltdown.
Equally, if you want to work out practical solutions without recourse to
advanced mathematics this is the book or you.
The author writes with the assurance and
practical know-how of an engineer who has implemented control systems of high
complexity in the challenging environment of an advanced modern steel plant.
Theoretical structures and mathematics are strictly part of the engineer’s
toolkit-not an end in themselves. Offers a fascinating compendium of
engineering wisdom and techniques. This third edition includes new chapters on
the increasingly important topic of industrial safety and the emergent subject
