Encyclopedia of Electronic Components Volume 3: Sensors for Location, Presence, Proximity, Orientation, Oscillation, Force, Load, Human Input, Liquid … Light, Heat, Sound, and Electricity


Encyclopedia of Electronic Components Volume 3: Sensors for Location, Presence, Proximity, Orientation, Oscillation, Force, Load, Human Input, Liquid … Light, Heat, Sound, and Electricity

Want to know how to use an electronic component? This third book of a three-volume set includes key information on electronics parts for your projects--complete with photographs, schematics, and diagrams. You'll learn what each one does, how it works, why it's useful, and what variants exist. No matter how much you know about electronics, you'll find fascinating details you've never come across before.

Perfect for teachers, hobbyists, engineers, and students of all ages, this reference puts reliable, fact-checked information right at your fingertips--whether you're refreshing your memory or exploring a component for the first time. Beginners will quickly grasp important concepts, and more experienced users will find the specific details their projects require.

Volume 3 covers components for sensing the physical world, including light, sound, heat, motion, ambient, and electrical sensors.

  • Unique: the first and only encyclopedia set on electronic components, distilled into three separate volumes
  • Incredibly detailed: includes information distilled from hundreds of sources
  • Easy to browse: parts are clearly organized by component type
  • Authoritative: fact-checked by expert advisors to ensure that the information is both current and accurate
  • Reliable: a more consistent source of information than online sources, product datasheets, and manufacturer's tutorials
  • Instructive: each component description provides details about substitutions, common problems, and workarounds
  • Comprehensive: Volume 1 covers power, electromagnetism, and discrete semi-conductors; Volume 2 includes integrated circuits, and light and sound sources; Volume 3 covers a range of sensing devices.

  1. K. L.

    If you are a beginner, a hobbyist, or just someone who is interested in learning about different electronic components, you will absolutely enjoy this series. In these very inexpensive volumes, you will find that they provide the most essential, and up to date information, as to what a particular component is, how it is used, and what to expect from it. Most importantly, these books are extremely easy to use and to understand. Are you tired of having to go to a computer or potable device each time you want to look up a component? I find it much easier to just thumb through the index for what I’m looking for, than to have to perform a search online for each component every time. I am confident that you will be amazed as to just how much useful information that there actually is for each component in these “encylopedias.” This particular volume is number 3, and hopefully it is just another addition to many more to come. You don’t need feel as though you have to buy all three of the volum…

    This is a must have for Makers who make electrical and electronic projects. Well researched and well presented. Excellent pictures and schematics give the reader an excellent understand of what each sensor does, considerations of which model of sensoe to use plus advantages and disadvantages of each. Highly recommended addition to Volumes 1 and 2….

  3. Leo Burke

    I heartily recommend not just this book, but the entire three volume series on components that this book completes. As an electronics engineer, I’m in a position to judge the quality of these books and I’ve been blown away by how good they are ever since the first one came out. However, these books are not just for engineers but for everyone with an interest in electronics. This one describes the principals behind the sensors, but is unable to get into great detail as it covers such a range of components it would require a series of manuals to do that. But it exposes the reader to what’s out there, how they work, how one uses them, what can go wrong and what one should watch out for. Fantastic book….
