Building Automation: Control Devices and Applicationby NJATC
Synopses & Reviews
A building automation system is a network of “intelligent” control devices used in one or more building systems, such as HVAC, lighting, and security systems. Building automation systems operate cooperatively to share building information and control system devices automatically according to programmed logic.
Building Automation Control Devices and Applications focuses on these control devices. This textbook covers the operation, signals, and functions of these sensors, actuators, and other control equipment used in automated systems in commercial buildings. The textbook is organized by building system, and each system is explained so that the function and application of each device is clear. This system-based foundation is then used to discuss the possibilities of interaction between multiple systems in automated buildings.
This textbook is a solid foundation for a comprehensive training program in building automation.
The CD-ROM included with the text includes Quick Quizzes®, an illustrated glossary, flash cards, media clips, and a link to www.ATPeResources.com.
