February 26, 2016 - Nagano, Japan

Hioki is pleased to announce that the AC/DC Current Probe CT6841 series and the AC/DC Clamp Meter CM4371 series have received 2016 iF Design Awards.

The iF Design Award, an internationally respected design prize that was introduced in Germany during the 1950s, is conferred by iF International Forum Design. Categories include “Product,” “Packaging,” “Communication,” “Interior Architecture,” “Architecture,” and “Service Design.” Hioki applied under the “Product” category for the first time as part of an ongoing effort to strengthen its global brand.  

Entries are judged by a team of international experts who carry out a comprehensive evaluation from nine perspectives, including aesthetic appeal, innovation, and ergonomics. Out of this year’s group of some 5,300 entries from 53 countries, only those products that attracted the rigorous attention of the jurors were selected to receive awards.

Recipients of this year’s iF Design Awards:
* CT6841 series of current sensors (including the CT6841, CT6843, and CT6844), which can measure current with a high degree of precision over a broad range of temperatures, allowing them to meet measurement needs in the development of products such as electric automobiles.
* CM4371 series of clamp meters (including the CM4371 and CM4373), which features a rugged design that helps professionals work quickly by incorporating a number of improvements that enable them to measure AC and DC current under demanding conditions.
