Jones' Instrument Technology, Volume 4: Instrumentation Systems is an installment of a book series on instrument technology. This volume deals with matters that are most common to all instruments and differs from the previous volumes in terms of length and practical or theoretical content. Chapter 1 gives insights into the types of components and construction used in commercial instrumentation. This chapter also includes topics such as instrument design, construction process, and its mechanical instruments. Chapter 2 discusses instrument's installation and management, along with several important notes. This chapter also includes discussions on instrument piping, cabling, earthing, and testing. In Chapter 3, the topic shifts to why instrument sampling is important, whether it is solid, liquid, gas, or a mix of any of the three. Chapter 4 revolves around the application of electronic signal-processing techniques to transducers and instruments. The next few chapters of this book cover telemetry, display and recording, and pneumatic instrumentation. The last two chapters talk about the reliability and safeness. This book serves as a great reference for people who are interested in learning instrument technology.
