Free technical literature designed to provide at-your-fingertips access to the technical information you need to meet your measurement and control requirements is offered by Omega Engineering Inc., Stamford, Conn.

Conceived as a practical thesis and a technical reference for everyday users of instrumentation and controls, each issue of “Transactions” from Omega Engineering offers information on a different measurement and control technology topic.

The premier issue, “Noncontact Temperature Measurement,” provides a historical and theoretical context of engineering and design principles, plus selection and application guidelines for devices ranging from infrared thermocouples to line scanners.
