Introduction Mechatronics and Measurements Systems – David Alciatore – 4th Edition


Introduction and Measurements Systems provides comprehensive and accessible coverage of the evolving field of for mechanical, electrical and aerospace majors. The author presents a concise review of electrical , solid-state devices, digital , and motors- all of which are fundamental to understanding mechatronic systems.

Mechatronics considerations are presented throughout the text, and in “ Example” features. The text’s numerous illustrations, examples, class discussion items, and chapter & exercises provide an opportunity to understand and apply mechatronics concepts to actual encountered in engineering practice. This text has been tested over several years to ensure accuracy.

The authors maintain a Mechatronics site with examples and animations related to thetext and much other relevant material at
