Extech Instruments, Waltham, Mass., said it's supporting ElectricalManuals.net to encourage technicians to upload product manuals on the peer-to-peer electrical product manual resource, www.electricalmanuals.net. Through Feb. 28, 2010, every manual uploaded enters a user into a drawing for an Extech EX623 AC/DC 5-in-1 clamp meter.

ElectricalManuals.net was launched in response to a need by electricians and plant technicians who needed access to manuals for electrical equipment, especially older equipment,” says electrical professional Jonathan Hulsman, who founded the site. “With thousands of members, the response has been terrific. We're pleased to work with Extech Instruments to offer this versatile clamp meter as an incentive to grow the site with more user manuals.”

The website aggregates manuals for electrical components, including automatic transfer switches, batteries, control devices, drives, fuses, generators, low-, medium- and high-voltage equipment, PLCs, power monitors, power quality, protective relays, test equipment, training, transformers and UPSs. The site also has a historical company name directory and a users forum.
