Explains electronic control theory in simple, non-mathematical terms and is illustrated by many practical projects suitable for the student or hobbyist to build. Shows how to use sensors as input to the control system, and how to provide output to lamps, heaters, solenoids, relays and motors. Also shows how to use control circuits to link input to output including signal processing, control loops and feedback.
Computer based control is explained by practical examples that can be run on a PC. For stand-alone systems, the projects use microcontrollers, such as the inexpensive and easy-to-use Stamp BASIC microcontroller. These projects are chosen to introduce and demonstrate as many aspects as possible of the programming language and techniques.
Containing 30 practical projects, this book is of interest to students and lecturers in technology departments of schools, colleges and universities, as well as to the home constructor
