A Comprehensive Guide to Sensors and Control Systems in Manufacturing

Thoroughly updated with cutting-edge technologies, this detailed resource offers proven methods for effectively evaluating, selecting, and implementing sensors and controls to ensure error-free manufacturing environments. Sensors and Control Systems in Manufacturing, Second Edition offers step-by-step guidance on applying sensors to measure product parameters, control manufacturing, develop precision manufacturing systems, and generate and control motion. Real-world examples are included throughout to demonstrate successful industrial applications.

Coverage includes:

  • The latest sensor technologies, such as MEMS, photo-, bio-, nano-, and LED sensors
  • Sensor classification and types, including photoelectric, inductive and capacitive proximity, confocal microscropy, and laser sensors
  • Fiber optics in sensors and control systems
  • Networking of sensors and control systems in manufacturing
  • Sensors and control technology in computer-integrated manufacturing
  • Advanced sensor technology in precision manufacturing applications
  • Industrial sensors and control
  • Sensors in flexible manufacturing systems
  • Communications--indexing, transmission, and signal processing
  • SpectRx(tm) sensing technology
