  • Instrumentation is somewhat of a lost art and requires skills beyond the basics of electricity. Industrial type electrical training should give background information to design, install and troubleshoot electrical systems and instrumentation. To be an effective instrumentation mechanic it is imperative that the technician have an understanding of the power system as well as instrumentation. This book does not cover power systems. If you want more information on power systems and power quality issues see our “ Electrical Technology" button at The goal of this book is to give basic information needed to be successful with design and troubleshooting of instrumentation systems. This is critical information that has be sanctioned by other technicians and engineers in the field. This book is not designed to be an exhaustive treatise of the subject but a practical look at the theory and application of instrumentation. It is our goal to give practical and theoretical information that can be studied quickly and applied to real-world situations.
