BASIC ELECTRONICS FOR HYDRAULIC MOTION CONTROL
Jack L Johnson, BSEE, PE
PUBLISHER: Penton Publishing Co, Cleveland, OH, 1992

438 Pages -- Hard Bound


This book covers all the basic theories and concepts needed to know how electronic equipment
works, how to use it and even how to design it. Many of the necessary design formulas are given
and discussed. In the solid state electronics parts of the book, the author uses the readers'
knowledge of hydraulic circuits to understand how electronic devices work. For example, the
transistor is explained in terms of a valve, and the electronically controlled, variable displacement
pump is shown to be a power amplifier and electrical ground is almost perfectly analogous to the system reservoir.

Scores of transducers are discussed, and the unique approach in this publication is that the
emphasis is placed on the nature of the input and output signals rather than on the variable being
transduced. This is important to the user of electronic equipment, because when the signal source
is understood and the destination needs are understood, all interface requirements are made much
clearer. Interfacing is one of the most baffling aspects of electronics for the non-electronic
technician or engineer, but they are lucidly explained in this book. Both digital and analog circuits are covered.
