Mechatronics. Electronic control systems in mechanical and electrical enginee ring (Ebook)

By William Bolton

Descripción: the term mechatronics was ‘invented’ by a Japanese engineer in 1969, as a combination of ‘mecha’ from mechanisms and ‘tronics’ from electronics. the word now has a wider meaning, being used to describe a philosophy in engineering technology in which there is a co-ordinated, and concurrently developed, integration of mechanical engineering with electronics and intelligent computer control in the design and manufacture of products and processes. as a result, many products which used to have mechanical functions have had many replaced with ones involving microprocessors. this has resulted in much greater flexibility, easier redesign and reprogramming, and the ability to carry out automated data collection and reporting. a consequence of this approach is the need for engineers and technicians to adopt an interdisciplinary and integrated approach to engineering. thus engineers and technicians need skills and knowledge that are not confined to a single subject area. they need to be capable of operating and communicating across a range of engineering disciplines and linking with those having more specialised skills. this book is an attempt to provide a basic background to mechatronics and provide links through to more specialised skills. the first edition was designed to cover the Business and technology education council (Btec) Mechatronics units for higher national certificate/Diploma courses for technicians and designed to fit alongside more specialist units such as those for design, manufacture and maintenance determined by the application area of the course. the book was widely used for such courses and has also found use in undergraduate courses in both Britain and in the United states. Following feedback from lecturers in both Britain and the United states, the second edition was considerably extended and with its extra depth it was not only still relevant for its original readership but also suitable for undergraduate courses. the third edition involved refinements of some explanations, more discussion of microcontrollers and
