Nagano, Japan

Hioki is pleased to announce that its proprietary Voltage Sensor PW9020 received a 2014 Design for the Future Award (Good Design Special Award) from the Japan Institute of Design Promotion.

In presenting its Design for the Future Award, which is one of a number of Good Design Special Awards, the Institute selects from among the products that received Good Design Awards in fiscal 2014 those that embody designs that lay the groundwork for the society of the future.

The Voltage Sensor PW9020 is a voltage sensor designed for use with the Clamp On Power Logger PW3365, the world’s first power meter to operate without metal-to-metal contact with measurement targets. Judges praised the PW9020 for dramatically improving work efficiency while reducing the psychological burden on field workers by making it possible to avoid the risk of electric shock and short-circuit accidents during power measurement.
