Engineering control systems are systems used to maintain or obtain a desired result, e.g. thermostat control used with central heating to maintain temperature. Instrumentation systems are the systems used to determine the value required within the control system. If set incorrectly, control systems can be extremely dangerous, and as such, this is an essential area of study for engineering students, especially in relation to the process control, automation, production and manufacturing sectors.

Bill Bolton provides a comprehensive introduction to the basic principles of modern instrumentation and control, including examples of the latest devices, techniques and applications. Coverage includes crucial health and safety considerations, and practical issues such as noise reduction, maintenance and testing.

An ideal text for all introductory level undergraduate courses, the book is fully in line with latest syllabus requirements, and covers, in full, the two Instrumentation & Control units of the new Higher National Engineering syllabus from Edexcel.

“The author has done a great job in condensing fundamental control theory into a practical text suitable for undergraduate studies in engineering…The book is interesting because the author not only details the fundamentals behind the operation but also shows how these devices are used in real applications.” – IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, Dec. 2005
