Types (Element) Of Industrial Instrumentation

Updated: May 31, 2020

Welcome to my site. This my first article on industrial instrumentation. I am come here to share whatever knowledge I have. If I will receive continuous support on my work I would definitely love to go long way and make people learn in an easier way. This gonna be a most interesting site in which I will cover on instrumentation and measurement, it's calibration topic. Here, I am not going to cover in detail and make you feel bore instead I will explain in brief which will cover important points in easy to remember way.

Now, before starting a discussion of instrumentation system first let me distinguish the difference between sensor, transducer and transmitter :

1. Sensor - A sensor which senses physical property like temperature, level, flow, pressure, humidity, concentration, etc. and convert it into a low level of electrical to measure properly or to send that signal over a long distance it used circuitry which amplifies the signal to send it over a long distance.

2. Transducer - which convert one form of energy to another form like I/P converter (current to pressure) or P/I (pressure to current) transducer which used extensively with pneumatic valves where the signal needs to convert to perform a task.

3. Transmitter - now most people think that transmitter only used to send a signal over long distance.yes this is right but also it maintains that proper mA current is proportional to applied pressure. (i.e. let I have a transmitter which has ranged from 0-6 bar has applied pressure let assume it is 3 bar so it maintains that proportional current of 12mA Irrespective of applied voltage about till 12 v it hold its mA output.)

Let come to our topic :

Types of instrumentation used in industry

1. Pressure Measurement

2. Level measurement

3. Temperature measurement

4. Flow measurement

5. Analytical measurement (PH, conductivity,etc.)

In the next post, I will explain each and everyone and types of each measurement.

hope you like this.
