Product Description This new edition of the bestselling Measurement, Instrumentation, and Sensors Handbook brings together all aspects of the design and implementation of measurement, instrumentation, and sensors. Reflecting the current state of the art, it describes the use of instruments and techniques for performing practical measurements in engineering, physics, chemistry, and the life sciences; explains sensors and the associated hardware and software; and discusses processing systems, automatic data acquisition, reduction and analysis, operation characteristics, accuracy, errors, calibrations, and the incorporation of standards for control purposes. This unwieldy tome is a great book on just about every kind of sensor you could think of.
It is an edited work, and consists of over 100 chapters/articles written by different groups of individuals. In spite of that, the book has a good logical flow. Part one is on measurement and instrumentation in general.
It discusses the desirable characteristics, operational modes, accuracy, and standards of instrumentation in general. The next ten sections discuss specific classes of sensors, their operation, applicable mathematical equations, and typical configuration/circuits needed for their use. The sensors are broken down into those that measure spatial variables, time and frequency, solid mechanical variables, fluid mechanical variables, thermal mechanical variables, electromagnetic variables, optical variables, radiation, chemical variables, and finally biomedical variables. It would probably be very difficult for any one person to understand all of these sections, as specific sections require a basic knowledge of specific disciplines, but the language is very accessible and the content very interesting. Each article contains an extensive bibliography and list of reference articles where more information can be obtained. The next section is about signal processing. This covers everything from A/D conversion to the mathematics of analog and digital signal processing.
There are plenty of circuits shown and even some worked out examples on how to design filters with certain given characteristics. This is very accessible to anyone with a background in signals and systems. Next is a less mentally taxing section on displays. There is some history of each device, theory of operation, and advice on the most suitable environment for each type of display device, as well as interfacing information. The final section is a brief one on control. This section seemed rather rushed and really didn't do a very good job of explaining control systems compared to the high quality of the rest of the book. Of all the books I've owned or read on the subject of sensors, this one has the best combination of device physics, theory of operation, application circuitry, signal processing, and applicable mathematics.
I highly recommend this book to any scientist who needs to learn about specific sensors and anything related to their operation, control, and possible interfaces. This book is one of the best book covering measurement and sensors. The book cover almost any sensor you think of, describe it function (the background physics) and then explain how it work with some application in software. This book must have for any one working with sensor (engineers, physicist.). The book start explaining it material assuming no prior knowledge for the reader which make it much easier and easy to follow up, start from simple point to explain and then get more complicated with mathematics applied for that particular sensor. I have a degree on physics and I believe this book is a good reference even in physics and I enjoy this book so much. It is a lot fun to read for professional or even for any reader.
Any time I was searching for more information about specific sensor this book never turn me down. In short it's on of the greatest book I bought and I don't mind paying it's price because it worth every penny. The two-volume set contains approximately 100 chapters. Almost all chapters are devoted to specific measurements, such as temperature, time, voltage, etc. The chapters vary in greatly in quality and comprehensiveness. I have used the set for a few years, read 6-10 of the chapters in detail, and skimmed more.
On the average, I find the chapters somewhat more useful than the corresponding Wikipedia articles - enough to make buying the set useful, but not enough to make buying the set essential. Your experience of the book will depend almost completely on which chapters you use. As an example of the best writing, Section 32.4 'Thermocouple Thermometers' is almost 33 pages long, and covers thermcouples in great detail, with good references for further reading. Overall, the section is excellent and comprehensive, covering almost every aspect of dealing with thermocouples. My only complaint is that the discussion of a reference thermocouple or cold junction compensation would have been difficult to understand had I not already been familiar with thermocouples. The discussion suffers from having too few diagrams and relying too much on text explanations. This high standard is not maintained throughout the volumes.
As an example, section 32.2 'Resistive Thermometers' describing RTDs appears to be a first draft that was incorrectly typeset. Paragraphs are redundant, essential information is missing, equation variables are mislabeled, and important discussions are incomplete. Some examples are: - The text states the 'Matthiessen rule' is that the total resistivity is (equation 32.20): p(total) = p(temperature) + p(impurities) + p(deformation) [I have written p instead of the Greek lower-case rho].
However, that is the end of the discussion, without any discussion of the relative effects of temperature, impurities, and deformation. The equation is pointless. The reader is left with no useful information to use to make decisions about whether or not these are important for a given application. - The text provides the Callendar-Van Dusen equations to calculate the resistance of an RTD as a function of temperature (equations 32.22 and 32.23), with the standard coefficients A, B, and C. However, the text defines the coefficients as (Greek letters) alpha, gamma, and beta - the definitions appear to have been pasted in from a different equation. The text also leaves out the values of the coefficients.
The RTD manufacturer will usually provide these, so the lack is not an essential problem. Of course, the inverse equation is the most useful - temperature as a function of measured resistance - but this equation is provided with pointless coefficient names and no information about how to calculate them. The Wikipedia article on RTDs (probably non-existent when this section was written) is far clearer and more informative. Some chapters display the strong biases of their authors. Chapters 18 (Time Measurement) and 19 (Frequency Measurement) are written by the same person from the US NIST, and they discuss primarily reference-quality solutions from the NIST. For example, chapter 18 lists only solutions that trace to NIST clocks (through radio transmissions, GPS, or networks), not very useful for anyone in a situation in which a connection is not available. Chapter 19 is almost redundant with chapter 18, listing the same NIST sources for frequency standards.
Chapter 19 does mention crystal oscillators (the overwhelmingly most common frequency source for electronics), without any substantive quantitative discussion. These chapters are almost useless unless you intend to tie up to the NIST. (I should note that section 19.2 on frequency uncertainty and stability is useful.) In a few cases the author biases are helpful.
For example, chapter 101 (on motors) contains a brilliant discussion of stepper motor electrical behavior that is both compact and clear, based on the work of the authors. The chapter is necessarily incomplete, given the available space. Irritatingly, the authors reference essentially only their own papers on specific aspects, there is no further reference for more general information about the topic.
I'm a little confused because all of the other three reviews refer to this thing as a great 'book' however this is supposed to be a volume SET. And they all gave it 5 stars. It seems a bit fishy to me that no one says 'THESE are great bookS.' Okay, that fishiness aside, my order arrived today and I was disappointed to find that I only got 'Volume 2' which commences at Chapter 45. Amazon is having me return the volume I got and sending me a new 'set.' The book has a beautiful cover.
The inside is LOTS and LOTS of pages of black and white text, tables, graphs, and plenty of calculus. I skimmed several chapters. Seems well written without excessively technical language (I mean, yeah, it's technical language where needed--this ain't a Harlequin Romance!) The pages aren't numbered from 1 to 2050, they are numbered by page within a chapter.
For example 25-11. Without having READ the entire thing or Proofed any of the equations I'd have to say that Volume 2 is a pretty good book. It's exactly what I was looking for: sort of an encyclopedia behind the theory and construction of the many many different types of sensors for use in industrial processes. I have to return Volume 2 and supposedly will be sent the entire set. I'll update if upon receipt of the entire 2 volume set there is anything of note to add.
Amazon apparently has unwittingly confused customers for this two-volume second edition of the Handbook by presenting it alternately as three separate postings as apparently different individual products. Appropriately, as intended by the publisher, the two volumes are sold either individually or as a set. The publisher is complicit in not clearly labeling the cover of each tome as Volume 1 of 2 or Volume 2 of 2. Moreover, the ten topical parts of each volume internally redundantly are both designated as Part I through Part X, complicating citation and reference. Also, Amazon has retained reviews of the first edition, wrongly seeming to apply them to the just issued Edition 2. This encyclopedic new (2014, 2nd, edition) three years in preparation, replaces the decade old first Edition.
The release was delayed by the late addition of a second editor, Halit Eren, who expanded coverage and individually wrote thirteen of the new chapters. All chapters of the 1st Edition were updated and many were entirely re-written (e.g.: Vol.2, Part VII, Chapter 70 on Thermoelectric Thermometry, responding to constructive comments of reviewers of Edition 1). Several additional topics were included. The many authors were drawn from expert specialists worldwide. The set very broadly addresses the world of measurement from general theory and principles to direct application. General fundamentals and broad concepts of measurement are only in Vol.
1 as are details for application of Electromagnetic, Optical, Radiation, Chemical, and Biomedical Measurement. Topics addressed in Volume 2 are only Spatial, Mechanical, Thermal and Radiation Measurement. Significant related measurement topics such as data analysis, signal distortion and its compensation, measurement validation, and authenticity are less specifically emphasized than are the hardware aspects of measurement. Experimentalists whose interests and activities vary widely would find both volumes to be useful. Understandably, a few less commonplace topics escaped inclusion. Part IV Chapter 36 on dynamic measurement of Acceleration, Vibration, and Shock covers many familiar sensor classes.
However, the less familiar precision transient sensors for impact and shockwave measurement were not well addressed. Unfamiliar sensor materials such as ferro- or piezoelectric materials, alternative crystallographic cuts of traditional Quartz, or Barium Titanate, Lithium Niobate, or PVDF plastic film were not covered nor were Ytterbium resistive shock wave sensors. The enlarged two volume set should appeal to seriously involved experimentalists, and to technical libraries, even those who have the prior 1st edition. This 2 volume set is well organized and well illustrated. So far the content has proven very useful, although it could use a revision seeing as it was published over a decade ago. Each section seems to lay down the fundamentals of the sensor, give the relevant mathematical formulas and then proceed to give real world data - whether it be sensor properties and performance, application advice, or calibration data.
There are tons of data tables and charts included in this text that would be difficult to get your hands on elsewhere; for example, in the temperature measurement section there is a data table that provides the response time and dissipation constant of a wide range of thermistors. I will try and add more comments as I continue to use these handbooks but so far they have been of good use to me as a R&D Engineer.
