Overview

The Seventh Edition of ELECTRONICS FOR ELECTRICIANS is a practical and relevant guide for anyone preparing for a career in industrial settings. With its updated graphics and increased coverage of important topics, this text helps you understand components and circuits in terms of how they work, what they do, how to use them, and how to test them. Review questions and problems in every chapter expose you to the electronic devices commonly found in industry -- as well as the circuit applications of those devices -- while lab experiments give you hands-on experience putting what you learn into practice.

As a retired electrician and proficient instructor with more than 30 years of practical experience, Stephen L. Herman is known for his reader-friendly approach. A seasoned author, Mr. Herman has written leading books on electricity and mathematics that are popular with students and instructors alike. For two decades Mr. Herman served as lead instructor for the Electrical Technology Curriculum at Lee College in Baytown, Texas, where he received an Excellence in Education Award from the Halliburton Education Foundation. He also taught at Randolph Community College in Asheboro, North Carolina, for nine years and helped pioneer an electrical curriculum for Northeast Texas Community College in Mount Pleasant, Texas. His additional publications include ELECTRIC MOTOR CONTROL, ELECTRICITY AND CONTROLS FOR HVAC/R, INDUSTRIAL MOTOR CONTROLS, UNDERSTANDING MOTOR CONTROLS, ELECTRONICS FOR ELECTRICIANS, ALTERNATING CURRENT FUNDAMENTALS, DIRECT CURRENT FUNDAMENTALS, ELECTRICAL STUDIES FOR TRADES, ELECTRICAL PRINCIPLES, EXPERIMENTS IN ELECTRICITY FOR USE WITH LAB VOLT EQUIPMENT, THE COMPLETE LABORATORY MANUAL FOR ELECTRICITY, and PRACTICAL PROBLEMS IN MATHEMATICS FOR ELECTRICIANS.

  • Hands-on, practical applications of the concepts are provided through labs in the back of the book.
  • A step-by-step guide to Testing Solid-State Components in the Appendix makes this text a ready reference for technicians.
  • Coverage includes information on decimal, binary, octal, and hexadecimal number systems as well as the test instruments commonly used to measure values in an electronic circuit.
  • An eight-page color insert with resistor color codes is included to help readers identify resistors.
