Automated machinery, such as computer numerical control machines (CNM), require constant monitoring for accuracy and precision. Thus, a correct understanding of 'metrology'--the science of measurement--is essential to the successful running and maintenance of all automated machines, and especially CNC machines.

"This is the definitive book on the use of variable speed drives for persons not generally familiar with electrical circuits, but exploring their use in process control applications. Many of the potential configurations are included for the various type of variable speed drives in a variety of automation applications. There is even an extensive tutorial for those of us not very familiar with electronics and with pumping technology." -- Dick Caro, ISA Fellow, CAP

A field bus is a two-way link between a programmable controller or operations monitor and an industrial device like a sensor, an electric motor, or a switch. It is a critical part of any automated industrial process—whether for factory automation (discrete processes like an assembly line) or process automation (continuous flow of materials being mixed, treated, or processed). PROFIBUS is a widely established program that allows for communication among and between controllers, fieldbuses, and actuator devices.

The storing, handling, and processing of bulk solid materials is fundamental to nearly every manufacturing and processing industry, from the food industry and agribusiness, to the plastics industry, to the mining and cement industries, to coal-fired electric utilities. Automating the handling and processing of solids is rapidly growing, but little has been published on the use of radar, especially for applications with highly dusty solids encountered in silos and other bulk storage facilities.

Storing, handling, and processing of bulk solid materials is fundamental to nearly every manufacturing and processing industry, from the food industry and agribusiness, to the plastics industry, to the mining and cement industries, to coal-fired electric utilities. Automating the handling and processing of solids is rapidly growing, but heretofore little has been published on the latest in sensors and controls used in such applications. This book is intended to meet that need, with full coverage, from principles of measuring solid bulk materials to controlling their flow and movement to help with choosing the right equipment for specific applications.

"This is the first great, 5-star ICS security book.“  Dale Peterson, Digital Bond

"Read Robust Control System Networks — it’s brief, concise, well-written, full of compelling anecdotes, and groundbreaking“  Richard Bejtlich, TaoSecurity

He was the researcher who was one of the first to identify and analyze the infamous industrial control system malware "Stuxnet," and has now written a book that takes a new, radical approach to making Industrial control systems safe from such cyber attacks: design the controls systems themselves to be "robust."
