Industrial Process Control with a BASIC Stamp!
Industrial Control (198 pp.) teaches the basics of industrial process control. The
text introduces the use of mechanical and digital switches (using a fan as
a tachometer), process control with on-off, differential gap, and PID
(using a desktop heating system). The
text has several realistic low-voltage examples, and demonstrates the same concepts
using high voltage.
Written by Marty Hebel and Will Devenport of Southern Illinois University.

Control text today! Requires Board of Education Full
Control Parts Kit
Process control concepts are taught using a desktop
heating system. With a resistor as a heater and an LM34 temperature
sensor, you'll model a full-size project. Fan provides external disturbance to this closed-loop system. Review the Industrial
Control Parts Kit.
