Written for the industrial sector, the reference work Measurement Systems and Sensors covers such areas as signal conditioners, virtual instruments, DAQ boards, temperature and pressure sensors, measurement systems with a serial or an IEEE-488 interface, and LAN-based, computer-based, and crate and modular measurement systems. Practical information on new wireless systems and GSM interfacing is included. The 336-page guide encompasses discussions on how to select the best analog-to-digital conversion method for a specific requirement and on whether to use a cable or wireless interface for optimum data transmission. Charts, diagrams, references and an index are provided. Waldemar Nawrocki; Artech House Inc., Norwood, Mass., 2005; $95.
