Sensors and Actuators: Engineering System Instrumentation, Second Edition - CRC Press BookFrom large-scale industrial systems to components in consumer applications, mechatronics has woven itself into the very fabric of modern technology. Among the most important elements of mechatronic systems are electromagnetic sensors and electromechanical actuators. Cultivated over years of industrial and research experience, Sensors and Actuators in Mechatronics: Design and Applications builds a practical understanding of the features and functions of various electromagnetic and electromechanical devices necessary to meet specific industrial requirements. This work focuses on various components that receive less attention in the available literature, such as magnetic sensors, linear and latching solenoid actuators, stepper motors, rotary actuators, and other special magnetic devices including magnetic valves and heart pumps. Each chapter follows a consistent format, working from theory to design, applications, and numerical problems and solutions.

Gas sensors are applied in industrial safety devices, but are reaching the home in applications such as CO detection. All current commercial pressure sensors are still of the membrane type, and also the related microelectromechanical systems MEMS microphones are membrane based. A microelectromechanical resonator is an actuated structure that is tuned to vibrate at a certain frequency.

About this book
Mechanical sensor technologies have been reviewed, inter alia, in a monograph 1. Comprehensive descriptions of the principles of sensors for mechanical quantities are available in the literature 2,3. The basic principle of mechanical sensors relies on the mechanical deformation of a device which is translated into an electrical signal.
