WALTHAM, Mass. - Extech Instruments is teaming up with ElectricalManuals.net to encourage technicians to upload product manuals on the company’s peer-to-peer electrical-related product manual online resource. Now through Feb. 28, every manual uploaded enters a user into a drawing for an Extech EX623 AC/DC 5-in-1 clamp meter featuring a built-in infrared thermometer.

“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. With thousands of members, the response has been terrific,” said Jonathan Hulsman, founder of ElectricalManuals.net. “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 diverse electrical components including: automatic transfer switches, batteries, control devices, drives, fuses, generators, low/medium/high voltage equipment, PLCs, power monitors, power quality, protective relays, test equipment, training, transformers, and UPSs.

According to the company, the site’s historical company name directory also helps technicians by cross-referencing retired brand names of older components with current companies that may have since acquired those brands. A user forum helps users discuss challenges or questions and a media section provides video and images of electrical-related topics.
