  • Presents the most up-to-date and complete information in the field--everything an instrument engineer needs to know
  • Describes the products of manufacturers from around the world
  • Includes contributions from approximately 100 leading industrial and academic professionals
  • Covers sensors, detectors, analyzers, and other measuring devices introduced since publication of the third edition
Unsurpassed in its coverage, usability, and authority since first published in 1969, the three-volume Instrument Engineers' Handbook continues to be the premier reference for instrument engineers around the world. It helps users select and implement hundreds of measurement and control instruments and analytical devices and design the most cost-effective process control systems that optimize production and maximize safety.

Volume 1: Process Measurement and Analysis now enters its fourth edition, fully updated and with increased emphasis on installation and maintenance consideration. Its coverage is now fully globalized with product descriptions from manufacturers around the world.
