For the second-consecutive year, the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) honored the industrial design team at Fluke Corp. with an International Design Excellence Award (IDEA). The Fluke team won a bronze award in the Commercial and Industrial Products category for its work on the Fluke 805 Vibration Meter.

The 805 Vibration Meter is a tool for technicians who are performing preventative bearing inspections. The tool works by pressing 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.”
