Instrument and Control Drives

Part of the Mechanical Engineering Series book series (MECS)


Instrument and control drives are essentially movement measuring devices and as such the prime requirement is one of ability to transmit position data reliably. Many instrument units are merely miniaturised versions of their power transmission equivalents, but with the specification accent on accuracy and low friction and not on their power transmission capabilities.
