Circuits for Electronic Applications

Author: E.E. Kimberly

In electronic industrial control, there are a fairly well defined set of phenomena which are most frequently used. It is the purpose of this chapter to describe some of the most common fundamental circuits and available commercial devices in which they are used. These devices use one or more of the fundamental circuits in combinations to perform the desired functions. In addition to the common elements, fundamental circuits for these devices usually contain resistors, condensers, or inductances, strategically dispersed according to the experience of the designer, to improve performance for a definite or restricted purpose. Use is also made of some "trick" circuits which are too numerous and varied to include here.
