ISA Announces Release of Test Measurement Instrumentation Resource

April 062006
Research Triangle Park, NC (6 April 2006) -- ISA recently announced the release of Fundamentals of Test Measurement Instrumentation by Keith Cheatle.

The new book is written for those who want to design test measurement systems; select appropriate equipment; understand system component characteristics, system and component calibration, and operating principles of transducers; determine overall system accuracy; and formulate basic test procedure design.

Targeting engineers, technicians, manufacturers, and students, the book discusses the specialized test instrumentation used in R&D laboratories, testing organizations, and industrial maintenance departments. It focuses on the practical application of test instrumentation and emphasizes the importance of creating a "measurement system" that involves components, installation, wiring, and calibration.

The design, application and calibration of systems for measuring pressure, temperature, flow, force, displacement, and vibration are also covered. Emphasis is placed on the calibration of test instrumentation, including detailed information about calibration equipment, methods, and records.
