The guide is easy to understand by anyone who has taken a high school physics courseùyet it provides quick, specific solutions for such electronics issues as feedback oscillation, ground loops, impedance mismatch, noise pickup, and optimization of PID controllers.
Use Industrial Electronics as a hands-on resource to handle typical electronics questions as they arise, as a self-study text to provide a broad background for understanding general electronics issues and design, or even for an instructor-led, on-the-job training course in shop or lab electronics. Because of the highly detailed explanations in the book, instructors themselves do not need to be experts. Of course, the volume is perfect for use as a textbook in college and vocational school courses.
The laboratory experiments are optional and may be used merely as examples. Components are inexpensive and can be obtained from consumer electronics stores such as Radio Shack or from electronics suppliers on the Web. The circuit diagrams are greatly simplified and completely understandable, with every component explained.
