Volume 1: Non-contact Temperature Measurement


W

e realize that your need for  basic and relevant scientific data and information continues to grow, and that you require all the information you can get to keep up with rapidly advancing and ever-more-complex instrumentation and controls technology. That's why we've made Omega's Transactions in Measurement and Control available for free download on the ControlGlobal.com web site.

Conceived as a practical thesis, a technical reference series for everyday users of instrumentation and controls, rather than a series of erudite essays, each chapter of Transactions will be jam-packed with information on a different measurement and control technology topic.

This first series, Non-contact Temperature Measurement, delves deeply into the issue of non-contact temperature measurement, providing a historical and theoretical context, engineering and design principles, plus selection and application guidelines for devices ranging from low-cost infrared thermocouples to sopohisticated linescanners.

It is also imortant to note that neither advertisements or promotionals will be present in the Transactions series.

Future editions of the Transactions series will systematically cover other aspects of temperature, humidity, pressure, strain, flow, level, pH, and conductivity instrumentation as well as other measurement, data acquisition and control topics.

 
We hope the Transactions in Measurement and Control series will find a permanent home on your reference shelf, and that it proves itself of great value now and in the future.
