Summary

A comprehensive introduction to electromechanical devices and their underlying principles of operation, one that gives students the unified treatment of mechanical and electrical topics so much in demand in today's workplace. Practical, hands-on information related to operating, installing, troubleshooting, and servicing a wide range of electromechanical systems is presented. Graded, self-paced chapters progress through mechanical, electrical, and magnetic concepts and principles; to their actual applications in a wide range of electromechanical devices. Numerous examples are presented throughout the text, together with a wealth of problem-solving techniques.

  • The first text to offer the integrated, unified treatment of mechanical and electrical topics needed by the modern technician who must be able to handle more than one area of technology.
  • Comprehensive coverage includes electromechanical basics such as transformers, stepper motors, and DC and AC motors, as well as sequential process control.
  • The use of practical design and replacement problems throughout the text is a strong motivator for learners.
  • Includes a review of number notation, systems of measurement, and conversion between and within measuring systems for students without previous mechanical training.
  • Coverage assumes no math background beyond elementary algebra making it suitable for technology students.
  • All chapters include questions and word problems to help tie chapter content together.
