In this Chapter, we will cover the introduction to Electronic Instrumentation which include the following :
Instrumentation is the branch of engineering that deals with measurement and control.
Instrumentation is defined as the art and science of measurement and control.
It serves not only sciences but all branches of engineering, medicine, and almost every human endeavor.
Electronics Instrumentation is the application of measurement technology in electronic-related field.
A device or mechanism used to determine the present value of the quantity under measurement.
The process of determining the amount,
degree, or capacity by comparison (direct or indirect) with
the accepted standards of the system units being used.
The degree of exactness (closeness) of a
measurement compared to the expected (desired) value
The smallest change in a measured variable to which an instrument will respond.
Precision A measure of the consistency or repeatability of
measurements, i.e. successive reading do not differ. (Precision
is the consistency of the instrument output for a given value of input).
The design value, i.e. the most probable value that calculations indicate one should expect to measure.
The deviation of the true value from the desired value.
The ratio of the change in output (response) of the instrument to a change of input or measured variable.
The process of comparing an unknown quantity with an accepted standard quantity.
The process of determining the amount, degree, or capacity
by comparison (direct or indirect) with the accepted
standards of the system units being used.
Vector representing a change in position of a body or a point with respect to a reference.
Relative deformation of elastic, plastic, and fluid materials under applied forces.
Oscillatory motion which can be described in term of amplitude (size), frequency (rate of oscillation) and phase (timing of the oscillation relative to fixed time)
Ratio of force commonly acting on a surface to the area of the surface.
Stream of molten or liquidified material that can be measured in term of speed and quantity
Measure of relative warmth or coolness of an object compared to absolute value.
Defined as a quantity that changes the motion, size, or shape of a body.
Defined as the tendency of a force to rotate the body to which it is applied.
International System of Units (abbreviated SI from the French le Système international d'unités)
It is the world's most widely used system of measurement, both in everyday commerce and in science.
The SI was developed in 1960 from the old metre-kilogram-
Amount of substance
Electric charge – coulomb (C)
Electric potential difference – volt (V)
Electric resistance – ohm (Ω)
Electric capacitance – farad (F)
Electric inductance – henry (H)
Energy – joule (J)
Force – newton (N)
Magnetic flux – weber (Wb)
Power – watt (W)
