Yokogawa’s WT5000 Precision Power Analyzer has won the prestigious “Power Product of the Year” trophy at the second annual Electronics Industry awards.

The award was presented on the 21st June at a ceremony at London’s Tower Hotel in the presence of an audience of leading industry professionals. The event has become a highlight of the industry calendar since its inception in 2018, where leading figures from the electronics field gather to celebrate their achievements and reward the market leaders from across the blossoming sector.

Commenting on the win, editor of CIE magazine, Niamh Marriot, said: “Ensuring your product is safe with great efficacy is paramount for our industry.

“The Yokogawa product is precise and well thought-out, and all round is an excellent design that works”, she added: “Congratulations to Yokogawa!”.

Kelvin Hagebeuk, European marketing manager, Yokogawa Europe Test & Measurement, said: “The Yokogawa community of precision makers is very excited and most of all honoured to win this prestigious award.
