ElectriCalc Data Exchange

(updated 7/12/06)

One of the reasons ElectriCalc was created was to encourage the exchange of information in the electric modeling community. To this end, ElectriCalc was designed with databases that are written as ASCII text, easily accessible and expandable. We welcome data submissions from you. All you have to do is highlight the data line in ecalc, hit Ctrl-C, then in your e-mail click Edit and Paste.

Click below to view the latest (Version 2.20) databases:

The easy way to get this data is to upgrade to V2.20. Besides getting the latest data, you can update in the future directly from ecalc with a couple of mouse clicks.
To get this data into your database the hard way, select from the buttons above and then use your browser's Save As feature to download the appropriate *.htm file into the ecalc2 folder. Once you have the new *.htm file(s) in the ecalc2 folder, use the Merge feature of ElectriCalc to add data to your database(s). This feature takes an ASCII (text) file that has ElectriCalc data in it and extracts this data. The Merge operation will only bring in new data and will ignore any duplicate data. The new entries will appear at the end of the database. You can then choose to rearrange or delete them as you see fit. From ElectriCalc, select File from the menu bar, then Merge Files. Select Motors [Planes, Cells, Props], then OK, then enter the complete path and filename of the file you want to merge. Don't be alarmed if bad format is reported. These were simply text lines that had no data.

If you already have V2.2 and for some reason you can't access the Internet directly from the program, e.g. running a Windows emulator on a Mac, the button above will give you access to the data added since the first release of V2.20. You can download this data and then merge into ElectriCalc. Depending on your browser, you might have to select File and Save As... to download the file. In ElectriCalc, click File and Merge Files to get the new data into your database (don't forget the file name and where you put it!).
