October 4, 2018 - Nagano, Japan -- Hioki is pleased to announce that the Memory HiCorder MR6000, Power Analyzer PW3390, AC/DC Current Sensor CT6904, and Lux Meter FT3425, all of which it manufactures and sells, have been recognized with the 2018 Good Design ward by the Japan Institute of Design Promotion. Below are summaries of the features of these four award-winning products.

Memory HiCorder MR6000 This flagship model offers the most measurement capacity of any Memory HiCorder ever introduced along with high-speed measurement at 200 MS/sec. (10 times faster than legacy models), and high-speed real-time saving of data that is 32 times faster than earlier generation devices. Direct, intuitive operation using a capacitive touch panel combines with higher-speed sampling and faster data processing to improve work efficiency.

Power Analyzer PW3390 In addition to support for performance testing under the new WLTP mode fuel efficiency standard, the PW3390 provides high-accuracy power analysis with basic accuracy of ±0.09%, placing it in the top tier of its category in the industry and exceeding the performance of its predecessor (the 3390). In addition to a measurement frequency band that has been expanded to 200 kHz, the instrument features a new phase shift function. The product is poised to make a significant contribution to the development, production, maintenance, and management of electric devices in the fields of energy conservation and alternative energy.

AC/DC Current Sensor CT6904 This current sensor delivers both a world-class measurement band (4 MHz, or 40 times that of the legacy model) and high accuracy, making it ideal for use in applications such as the evaluation of next-generation inverters, which operate on increasingly large currents and at increasingly high frequencies.

Lux Meter FT3425 The world’s first illuminance meter to offer Bluetooth® communications, the FT3425 can transfer measured values to a smartphone or tablet via GENNECT Cross, an app developed by Hioki. This capability has allowed users to halve the amount of time they spend making measurements, recording readings, and creating reports.
