Second Edition: This Handbook has been published in 2001. Due to the overwhelming demand of such book the author and the publisher agreed to provide the public with the second edition, The second edition will be released for publication in January 2009
Sensors Handbook The first all-inclusive reference on sensors in industry and science! Helps engineers, scientists, medical researchers, and technicians pinpoint the optimum sensor for any given application. Finally--a current and comprehensive guide to commercially available sensors! This one-of-a-kind reference offers valuable information on a vast array of sensors for almost every application, including micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), magnetorheological sensors, optical fiber sensors, and the SpectRx spectrophotometer sensor. With this Handbook, professionals can check the specifications for a required component more easily and more reliably than ever! The Sensors Handbook gives background information on the use of several technologies fundamental to the development of sensor applications in many fields. It also provides a valuable yet simple understanding of sensor implementation in the fields of manufacturing engineering, engineering design, aerospace engineering, the military, pharmaceuticals, medicine, agriculture, manufacturing control, and environmental studies. The sensor technology described in this Handbook provides scientists, engineers, and system implementers with a very powerful tool to implement the latest in flexible manufacturing control using sensors to monitor and control productivity quantitatively and qualitatively. In addition, it serves the advanced manufacturing organizations in providing a clear understanding of the role of sensors and control systems in computer-integrated manufacturing strategies.
April 16, 2008 Readers Comment: this book was quite a good book, more details needed in the basic design issues of MEMS sensors like acceleromets and other sensors. but for that the book is a good book.
This is one of the most comprehensive book that ties up the sensors, and their corresponding control aspects in various industries.
