Introduction to instrumentation for measurement and control of physical variables, with emphasis on electronic systems. Electrical instruments, signal conditionng circuits, sensors, measurement principles and data acquisition using high level language such as LabVIEW are investigated. Analog and computer-based controllers including PID are introduced. Discrete state controllers such as Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) are taught from a systems point of view. Topics include: Wheatstone bridge, H-Bridge, op-amps, thermal, mechanical, optical sensors, PLC and PID controllers.
