The PLC is the device at the heart of most automated control systems and instrumentation in industry. The bestselling first edition of this book was the first user guide and tutorial to the standard IEC 1131-3; this revised edition includes all IEC proposed amendments and corrections, as agreed by the IEC working group. It accurately describes the languages and concepts, and interprets the standard for practical implementation and applications.

New technologies and standards are emerging which will have a dramatic effect on the design and implementation of future industrial control systems. New tools and techniques are needed to design and model systems, such as UML and modern fieldbus technology. The new IEC 61499 standard has been developed specifically to model distributed control systems, defining concepts and models so that software in the form of function blocks can be interconnected to define the behavior of a distributed control system. This book provides a concise yet thorough introduction to the main concepts and models defined in the IEC 61499 standard and particularly the use of function blocks. Incorporating industrially relevant examples to show how these can be applied, the book is ideal as a user-guide for the application of the standard for modelling distributed systems. It is also, particularly relevant to those working in industrial control, software engineering, mechatronics and manufacturing systems.

The latest update to Bela Liptak's acclaimed "bible" of instrument engineering is now available. Retaining the format that made the previous editions bestsellers in their own right, the fourth edition of Process Control and Optimization continues the tradition of providing quick and easy access to highly practical information. The authors are practicing engineers, not theoretical people from academia, and their from-the-trenches advice has been repeatedly tested in real-life applications. Expanded coverage includes descriptions of overseas manufacturer's products and concepts, model-based optimization in control theory, new major inventions and innovations in control valves, and a full chapter devoted to safety. With more than 2000 graphs, figures, and tables, this all-inclusive encyclopedic volume replaces an entire library with one authoritative reference. The fourth edition brings the content of the previous editions completely up to date, incorporates the developments of the last decade, and broadens the horizons of the work from an American to a global perspective. Béla G. Lipták speaks on Post-Oil Energy Technology on the AT&T Tech Channel.

This book presents the original concepts and modern techniques for specification, synthesis, optimisation and implementation of parallel logical control devices. It deals with essential problems of reconfigurable control systems like dependability, modularity and portability. Reconfigurable systems require a wider variety of design and verification options than the application-specific integrated circuits. The book presents a comprehensive selection of possible design techniques. The diversity of the modelling approaches covers Petri nets, state machines and activity diagrams. The preferences of the presented optimization and synthesis methods are not limited to increasing of the efficiency of resource use. One of the biggest advantages of the presented methods is the platform independence, the FPGA devices and single board computers are some of the examples of possible platforms. These issues and problems are illustrated with practical cases of complete control systems. If you expect a new look at the reconfigurable systems designing process or need ideas for improving the quality of the project, this book is a good choice.g process or need ideas for improving the quality of the project, this book is a good choice.
