Book Description

March 19, 1998 0471245186 978-0471245186 4
A step-by-step guide to solving noise and interference problems in the digital age

The rapid growth of digital technology over the past decade has brought the analog world into direct contact with high-speed operations and electromagnetic processes--and created a host of new problems for designers. This new twist requires different approaches to issues of noise and interference in digital processing, high-speed communication, mass data storage, and high-frequency applications.

Grounding and Shielding Techniques, Fourth Edition is entirely rewritten to reflect these new challenges. This highly effective tool for the management of interference problems in electronic equipment treats the fundamentals of electrostatics as they relate to electromagnetic phenomena. Specifically, this volume deals with the new interference problems created when analog designs are buried in the middle of hardware that must meet radiation and susceptibility standards. It features:
* Effective techniques for handling noise problems in a variety of circumstances
* Step-by-step instructions for building noise-free instrument systems
* Strategies for reducing or eliminating noise in interconnecting systems
* Expanded discussion of multishielded transformers
* An overview of current trends to limit the use of transformers
* Real-world examples of factors influencing electronic noise
* Simplified, practical explanations of the physics of fields
* Dozens of illustrations and a clear, readable text.

Grounding and Shielding Techniques, Fourth Edition is a state-of-the-art problem-solving guide for electronic design engineers and technicians. It is also an extremely useful text for short courses on electronic noise.

Format:Hardcover
I am familiar with the 3rd edition of this book. This text is the classic text in the field, and the original source for what a lot of other authors write about grounding and sheilding. It is fairly mathematical in its approach (and hence has a theoretical rather than purely practical bias), but if you have (for example) a transmission line problem on your circuit and can't model or fix it, you will be able to get a handle on the problem using this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The classic text on analog grounding and shielding. August 29, 2001
Format:Hardcover
The first 3 editions of this book had "In Instrumentation" in the title, the name change reflects an added focus on digital electronics, but the emphasis on analog is still there. The book was and is outstanding in its explanation of how to calculate the magnitude of interference from all kinds of external sources on analog signals between sensors and instrumentation or between instruments, and how to thus select a grounding and shielding system which meets requirements. I have used its methods to solve grounding and shielding problems many times during 20+ years as a field engineer troubleshooting new machinery control installations. It may not the best book for learning digital signal integrity design issues, but does introduce the subject clearly.

This book is a good introductory book to understand electrostatics, electromagnetism, and related induction and noise problems. The book is better suited for electronic design engineers and technicians, offering them techniques for handling noise problems, and reducing or eliminating noise in interconnecting systems and electronic equipment.

Probably not the best choice if you are an Industrial Practitioner of Instrumentation, Automation and Control Systems, looking to increase your knowledge about noise and induction problems, but especially interested in real world solutions and case studies related to field instrumentation loops, control systems, UPS, and the sort of equipment and devices found in industrial application. If this is your case, you should take a look at "Practical Grounding, Bonding, Shielding and Surge Protection (Practical Professional Books)" by G Vijayaraghavan, Mark Brown, and Malcolm Barnes, and "Control System Power and Grounding Better Practice ("Control Engineering" S.)" by Roger Hope, Dave Harrold, and David Brown, which may probe to be more useful for your specific needs.

I am an Industrial Practitioner of Process Measurement & Control who has been working in the Process Industries for more than 16 years as an Automation, Instrumentation, Process Safety and Process Control Engineer. I found thie latest two books more useful in understanding and dealing with day to day problems encountered in the field and in control rooms.
