The Complete Book of Motor Control Application and Maintenance
By Richard L. Nailen, P.E
Explains the basics of control technology and components, such as relays, contacts, switches, and resistors.
From the author of Managing Motors comes this useful guide to electromechanical and electronic motor controls. Beginning with the principles of circuit diagrams, the author explains the basics of control technology and the fundamentals of control components like relays, contacts, switches, and resistors. He then shows how these components and principles come into play in the operation of automatic transfer switches, mechanical and electronic motor starters, motor control centers, and motor circuit protection.
