Programmable logic controllers : an introduction by W Bolton( )

114 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 3,983 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rapid technological advances have made the PLC an important part of many industries, from petrochemicals to food production. At the same time, the study of PLCs has moved into lower academic levels - first year BSc/BEng modules, HNC/D, and Advanced GNVQ. It has been written specifically for current courses, including the BTEC Advanced GNVQ Additional Unit in PLCs, and the City & Guilds 2300 course in Computer Aided Engineering. It also closely matches the new HNC/D unit

Instrumentation and control systems by W Bolton( )

30 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 1,473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Instrumentation and Control Systems addresses the basic principles of modern instrumentation and control systems, including examples of the latest devices, techniques and applications in a clear and readable style. Unlike the majority of books in this field, only a minimal prior knowledge of mathematical methods is assumed. The book focuses on providing a comprehensive introduction to the subject, with Laplace presented in a simple and easily accessible form, complimented by an outline of the mathematics that would be required to progress to more advanced levels of study. Taking a highly practical approach, the author combines underpinning theory with numerous case studies and applications throughout, to enable the reader to apply the content directly to real-world engineering contexts. Coverage includes smart instrumentation, DAQ, crucial health and safety considerations, and practical issues such as noise reduction, maintenance and testing. PLCs and ladder programming is incorporated in the text, as well as new information introducing the various software programs used for simulation."--
