Modern Control Technology: Components and Systems, 2nd Edition provides an introduction to automatic control systems and

components that is both comprehensive and up-to-date. Logically organized, this book takes the reader on a journey through a

control system. Each chapter examines a different functional part, followed by discussion of control units and control strategies

that serves to put these parts together in a full-function control system. The text emphasizes not only on how things work, but

also how they work together. Thoroughly updated, this edition features new material on popular PIC and BASIC Stamp

microcontrollers, plus expanded coverage of brushless DC motors, as well as networking used in control systems. Information

has also been added to better address topics such as: decibels, levers, friction, clutches and brakes, tooth rotor tachometers,

vision sensors, dynamic braking of DC motors, linear motors, and flux vector AC drives.[/align]
