    Electromechanical transducers are the primary component in many measurement systems and are increasingly called on to function in environmental extremes. The review describes how this challenge is being met, with particular reference to the mechanical measurands of strain, force/load, pressure, displacement, level and vibration. The basic principles and common forms of each transducer are first br... View full abstract»

    Electrometers are used for measuring small currents, charges and voltages normally less than 10V, and sometimes resistance. Originally passive electrometers such as Kelvin's quadrant electrometer were used. These earlier instruments have now been largely superseded, first of all by valve electrometers and more recently by electrometers incorporating semiconductors. The commonest and cheapest form ...

    The paper discusses the benefits to be obtained by the use of automatic and remote control techniques, and explores the factors which have determined the rate of progress in introducing such techniques. Two major constraints that have affected the introduction of unattended stations, namely the reliability of television and radio transmitting equipment, and the ability to measure automatically and...

    This paper has been written so as to be of wide interest and to summarise current situations, and is therefore not highly technical, although the subject of the currently evolving systems towards which the discussions lead provides considerable scope for high technology. The paper starts by briefly setting out the assumptions as to the longer-term requirements, basically electric propulsion and au... View full abstract»

    The paper presents a survey of the industrial applications of electric heating from an electrical engineering view-point. The different electrical heating processes possible are described including direct and indirect resistance, induction and dielectric heating plasma, laser- and electron-beam processes for such processes as heat treatment, drying, melting metals and plastics, chemical processing...
