EVERETT, Wash., July 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- For the second year in a row, the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) has honored the industrial design team at Fluke Corporation with an International Design Excellence Award (IDEA®), the premier international competition honoring design excellence in products, ecodesign, interaction design, packaging, strategy, research, and concepts.

The 805 Vibration Meter is an easy-to-use tool for technicians performing preventative bearing inspections. The user simply presses the sensor tip against the motor housing. The 805 teaches the user how to get an accurate reading by calculating how hard it is being pressed against a motor. When the user applies the correct force, a ring around the handle lights up: green for "ready to measure" and red for "try again."

"Precision vibration analysis is a science requiring complex equipment and know-how, so the challenge in designing the 805 was to create a handheld tool that dramatically simplifies the measurement process," said Matthew Marzynski, industrial design manager for Fluke Corp. "By designing an interface that makes measurement taking and interpreting the results easy, we created a product that anyone on the maintenance crew can use successfully."

IDSA is the world's oldest, largest, member-driven society for industrial design, representing professionals in product design, interaction design, human factors, ergonomics, design research, design management, universal design and related design fields. Its IDEA program fosters business and public understanding about the impact of industrial design excellence on the quality of life and the economy.
