A new test measurement resource is available from ISA, the Instrumentation, Systems, and Automation Society . Fundamentals of Test Measurement Instrumentation targets those who want to learn to design test measurement systems; select appropriate equipment; understand system component characteristics, system and component calibration, and operating principles of transducers; determine overall system accuracy; and formulate basic test procedure designs.

Written by Keith Cheatle, the book targets engineers, technicians, manufacturers, and students. It discusses the specialized test instrumentation used in R&D laboratories, testing organizations, and industrial maintenance departments. Focus is also placed on the practical applications of test instrumentation and the importance of creating a measurement system that involves components, installation, wiring, and calibration. The book covers the design, application, and calibration of systems for measuring pressure, temperature, flow, force, displacement, and vibration. Calibration of test instrumentation is emphasized, including detailed information about calibration equipment, methods, and records.
