Thanks Roger -- there's so much to learn, but that makes it all the more exciting -- Max

I also suggest getting a good grounding (no pun intended!) in sensors, actuators, field instrumentation and field wiring (both direct and field bus.) Sorry, out of touch on books... I learned the theory years ago via Bellman, Tou, Kuo, Astrom, et al, and the instrument practice though ISA standards and years in industry. Good luck! Roger

There seem to be a bunch of books out there -- but they don't seem to get very good reviews -- also some of them are mega expansive -- I don't want to spend $100+ on a book unless it really is the right book for the job ... help! :-)

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
