Field Measuring Instruments

Customer demand for the ability to capture CAN signal with non-contact technology is growing as automobiles incorporate more electronic components and transition to electric drivetrains.

The number of onboard ECUs continues to rise as electronic control of vehicles becomes more sophisticated. Controller Area Network (CAN) is a network that allows such ECUs to communicate with each other. There are a growing number of opportunities to use information from CAN communications in vehicle development and evaluation thanks to the ability to acquire important information such as sensor and control data. In the past, acquiring CAN signals meant either stripping back signal line insulation so that probes could be placed in contact with conductors or inserting branching harnesses into signal lines. However, stripping wires to establish contact meant that the wires were no longer protected by insulation, and using branching harnesses made preparing for testing a time-consuming proposition.

HIOKI, An R&D-Focused Company

Technology advances on a daily basis, making possible safer and more comfortable human lifestyles and helping make dreams come true. The measuring instruments that underpin these advances also continue to evolve. To develop electrical measuring instruments that meet the changing needs of our times, one-third of all HIOKI employees work in research and development, an area where we invest approximately 10% of all revenue.

Pursuing Agile Production

HIOKI works to implement optimal production structures that are capable of meeting changing market needs with high-quality products. Due to the nature of electrical measuring instruments, which serve as yardsticks for measuring electricity, it is necessary to ensure a high level of quality in their production. Working with the cooperation of suppliers, we continuously strive to ensure our manufacturing operations conform to the world’s highest standards of product quality.
