Motor Controls for Integrated Systems, 5E
By: Gary Rockis, Glen A. Mazur
Electrical Motor Controls
for Integrated Systems is the
industry-leading reference that covers electrical, motor, and
mechanical devices and their use in industrial control circuits.
Controls for Integrated Systems, Text,
& Answer Key
This textbook provides the architecture and
content for acquiring the knowledge and skills required in an
advanced manufacturing environment. In this fast-changing
manufacturing environment, technicians must be competent in various
aspects of mechanical, electrical, and fluid power systems for
productivity and success.
The textbook also serves as a practical
resource for maintenance technicians responsible for production
equipment and HVAC equipment.
content begins with basic electrical and motor theory, builds on
circuit fundamentals, and reinforces comprehension through examples
of industrial applications. Emphasis is placed on the development of
troubleshooting skills throughout the book.
Expanded content in this
edition includes the following:
Each chapter includes checkpoint questions to reinforce key
concepts, energy efficiency practices to promote energy efficiency,
and Applying Your Knowledge to reinforce key motor control concepts
on the DVD-ROM.
Answers to the checkpoint
questions are located in the Answer Keys.
The Appendix contains many useful tables, charts, and formulas.
The Glossary defines over 500 technical terms related to electrical
theory, motors, motor control circuits, and control devices.
