A comprehensive, cross-disciplinary introduction to the design of computer controlled mechanical systemsWith Sabri Cetinkunt's Mechatronics, you can develop the technical background you need to design an automated machine, component, or process, as well as the practical judgment and knowledge of the current state-of-the-art technology you need to find the most effective solution. Drawing on knowledge and techniques from mechanical, aerospace, chemical, electrical and computer engineering, the text explores the theory behind a wide range of basic devices used in automated machines and processes--from gears and pumps, to servomotors and microchips. Various motion-control lab experiments bring together all aspects of the mechatronics field, and provide practical experience in designing circuits and writing software.Key Features* Reviews the basic concepts of kinematics and common motion conversion mechanisms.* Provides practical coverage of electronics, focusing on information non-electronics engineers need to know to analyze and design systems containing electronic components.* Offers comprehensive coverage of electro-hydraulic systems with real-world examples from the construction equipment industry.* Includes extensive and accurate coverage of all types of sensors, enabling you to work on any project that involves measurement and testing.* Discusses electric motors in detail, including DC motors, steppers, AC motors, and SR motors--key knowledge for designers of factory automation and robotic projects.* Covers microcontroller hardware and software issues, using PIC-18F452 microcontroller as an example.* Includes the often neglected topic of programmable logic controllers (PLCs) which forms the foundation of factory automation.* The first textbook to cover the coordination motion control concepts as they are used in industry using state-of-the-art motion controllers and servo motors (i.e, applications in printing machines, coil winding machines, machine tools, and robotics).* Various motion-control-related lab experiments involve the construction of electronic interface circuits and the programming of real-time controls software.* Discusses modeling of mechatronic systems and components, control system design, analysis and simulation in MATLAB.* References real devices or components in examples and applications.* Provides a comprehensive list of supplies of components needed in mechatronic systems.
WHAT'S BONUS TIME?
Normally, new semester rental orders are exactly 125 days.
With “Bonus Time” you can order early and get a FREE extension until 12/19*.
It’s our little way of rewarding you early renters for planning ahead.
But do hurry. The “Bonus Time” offer runs out on 8/8 (11PM PST).
* It can take up to 24 hours for the extension to appear in your account after you receive your textbooks.
Since launching the first textbook rental site in 2006, BookRenter has never wavered from our mission to make education more affordable for all students. Every day, we focus on delivering students the best prices, the most flexible options, and the best service on earth. On March 13, 2012 BookRenter.com, Inc. formally changed its name to Rafter, Inc. We are still the same company and the same people, only our corporate name has changed.
