What is the format?

To download an e-Manual to a device
e-Manuals are provided in a DRM-protected format that prohibits printing and copying any portion of the manual. To download and view our e-Manuals on your Windows or Mac computer, iPad, or Android tablet, you will need to install reader software that supports Adobe DRM. If you do not already have an Adobe.com login and compatible reader software installed on your device, you will need to download one of these programs and create an account. For the latest requirements and downloads, visit the website for the reader of your choice:
BlueFire Reader (recommended): The Bluefire Reader app is available for Apple iOS, Android, and Windows. You may incur a small fee for the app download.
Adobe Digital Editions: Adobe Digital Editions software is a secure platform that allows users to download and view electronic publications for Apple iOS, Windows, and Android. Both the software and the Adobe.com account are available at no charge. Please note that devices running on Apple’s recently released iOS15 will not display e-Manuals correctly. If you are using iOS15, please use the Bluefire Reader app or access your e-Manual through the Digital Library in PARiConnect.
The commonly used application Adobe Reader does not support our e-Manuals.
Is it possible to print out the e-Manual if I want a hard copy?
Because e-Manuals are in a DRM-protected format, printing is prohibited. The e-Manual can only be viewed on-screen via Adobe Digital Editions, the Bluefire Reader app, or via the PARiConnect Digital Library. Please purchase the print manual if you need a hard copy. Expedited shipping is available if you require the print manual quickly.
What kind of a system should I have?
PARiConnect requires a Windows®-based, Chrome OS, or Mac desktop or laptop computer with an internet connection and the latest version of one of the following web browsers: Chrome™, Safari®, Firefox®, or Microsoft Edge. PARiConnect will run on any version of the Apple iPad running iOS 10 or higher and on Android tablets.
Can I view e-Manuals on an e-reader or a tablet/iPad®?
e-Manuals from PAR can be downloaded and viewed on the iPad and on Android tablets. Use of e-Manuals on these tablets requires you to download Adobe Digital Editions or the BlueFire Reader app onto your device. The PARiConnect Digital Library also allows users to view e-Manuals via a tablet or an iPad. Please note that devices running on Apple’s recently released iOS15 will not display e-Manuals correctly. If you are using iOS15, please use the Bluefire Reader app or access your e-Manual through the Digital Library in PARiConnect.
Can you create bookmarks for specific pages?
You can create bookmarks to specific pages if you are viewing the downloaded e-Manual. Once you are on a page you wish to bookmark, simply click the “Create Bookmark” button and add a note about the bookmark. To view any bookmarks you have created, click on the Bookmarks tab on the left side of the screen.
How many times can I download an e-Manual?
Each e-Manual you purchase is licensed for one user. We provide two download links per purchase. The second download link serves as a backup should you experience computer problems, replace your computer, or otherwise lose your original copy. To view your e-Manuals on devices other than the one you used to download, access the Digital Library on PARiConnect. All users with access to your PARiConnect account will be able to view your purchased e-Manuals.
Is it possible to search the e-Manual by key word?
Yes, it is possible to search the e-Manuals by key word.
Is the e-Manual identical to the printed manual?
Yes, all the information contained in the printed manual, including tables and graphs, is included in the digital version.
