  1. At The Connecting Edge, we cover all kinds of electrical connectivity and circuit protection. Some of our most popular blogs have covered failures caused by ESD as well as electrical appliance failures.

  2. http://www.electricaleasy.com is not exactly an electrical product developer or manufacturer’s blog. But it may be helpful in understanding the basic things in electrical, about electrical machines. For example, testing of transformers, speed control methods of electrical motors, transformer cooling systems and many more. Have a look at it, and see whether it fits in your listing.

  3. I can vouch for Martin. I read The Connecting Edge, it’s good! Now EDN but I will keep reading!
