This is a fully revised, new edition on the topic of instrumentation and control systems and their application to marine engineering for professional trainees studying Merchant Navy Marine Engineering Certificates of Competency (CoC) as well as Electrical/Marine Engineering undergraduate students. Providing generic technical and practical descriptions of the operation of instrumentation and control devices and systems, this volume also contains mathematic analysis where appropriate. Addressing this subject area, the domain of Instrumentation Engineers/Technicians as well as Control Engineers, and covering established processes and protocols and extensive developing technology, this textbook is written with the marine engineer in mind, particularly those studying Engineering Knowledge. The content ranges from simple measurement devices, through signal conditioning and digitisation to highly sophisticated automated control and instrumentation systems. It also includes a brand new section on electrical equipment in hazardous areas detailing hazards, gas groups, temperature classifications and types of protection including increased and intrinsic safety and encapsulation, and up-to-date material on the new generation of Liquified Natural Gas carriers, SMART sensors and protocols, as well as computer based systems.

Aiming to bridge the gap between the mathematical treatment often used by specialist control engineers and the (necessarily) narrow descriptive literature of a particular manufacturer, this book covers the requirements of DoT and all BTEC and SCOTVEC syllabuses for Marine Engineer Officers and Cadets. Test examples and speciment exam questions are provided, along with many explanatory diagrams. This book is written primarily for those with a good general engineering background who have had little experience in instrumentation and control. It favours marine engineering, but students and engineers in other industries should find it a useful reference as the subject has a common basis. The text is presented from basic principles, using analogues where appropriate.

Divided into three sections, the book covers the complete syllabus for Electrotechnology Officers as specified by the Association of Marine Electronic and Radio Colleges (AMERC), with a series of worked examples and self-study questions to assist in student understanding. The book introduces basic electronics, the theory of how a range of navigational aids works, and radio communications including GMDSS. Fault find to component and sub system level is also included. Importantly, this is the first textbook to be aimed primarily at ETOs, covering the changes to the STCW 2010. An essential buy.

This book is a companion to Reeds Vol. 6: Basic Electrotechnology for Marine Engineers and covers aspects of theory beyond the scope of Volume 6. The book will cover the more advanced topics in electrotechnology for professional trainees studying Merchant Navy Marine Engineering Certificates of Competency (CoC) as well as the syllabi in electrotechnology for undergraduates studying for BSc, BEng and MEng degrees in marine engineering and electrical engineering. The new edition provides worked examples and test exam questions, corresponding to current Merchant Navy Qualifications. Other revisions will include new material on emerging technology areas such as image intensifiers (photoelectric effect, secondary emission), thermal imaging cameras, radar, increased maritime use of LEDs, various semiconductor physics devices including the laser, as well as discussions of binary or digital theory.
