Instrument Engineers' Handbook, Third Edition: Volume Three: Process Software and Digital Networks provides an in-depth, state-of-the-art review of existing and evolving digital communications and control systems. While the book highlights the transportation of digital information by buses and networks, the total coverage doesn't stop there. It describes a variety of process-control software packages suited for plant optimization, maintenance, and safety related applications. In addition, topics include plant design and modernization, safety and operations related logic systems, and the design of integrated workstations and control centers. The book concludes with an appendix providing practical information such as bidders lists and addresses, steam tables, materials selection for corrosive services, and much more. If you buy the three-volume set of the Instrument Engineers Handbook, you will have everything a process control engineer or instrumentation technician needs. If you buy this volume, you will have at your fingertips all the software and digital network related information that is needed by IaC engineers. It will be the resource you reach for over and over again.... sensitivity of the systems to the two failure modes, in economic and humanfactor risk, and the cost and practicality of proof testing. ... Here the thermometer can provide local operator indication, and the two thermocouple elements offer redundant ... A slip during maintenance can easily take out both measurements at once and it is impossible to repair one element without taking the other out of service.
