BackgroundThe history of the HIOKI multimeter dates back to 1946 when the Tokyo-based company launched their first multimeter, the model H Circuit Tester. Fast forward to 2013, and HIOKI released its Digital Multimeter DT4200 series, comprising seven models. From multifunctional models for use in the research and development of solar power systems and inverters to on-site and “pocket-sized” or portable models, HIOKI created a series of multimeters that have become one of the world’s leading tools in the field of electrical testing and measurement. With each new design, HIOKI has incorporated features that focus specifically on strength, usability and efficiency. To date, the DT4200 range now boasts 13 models, each with specialised functionality for a variety of applications.
About the DT4200 SeriesThe DT4200 series’ primary design principle is based on the concept of enabling customers to undertake professional-grade work more efficiently.
