Abstract:Fluke has the idea to use an excisting consumer tablet in their future power quality analyzer. An early study by Philip Jansen, a bachelor student at the Univirsity of Twente, shows that a touchscreen interface is a real addition to the functionality of a power quality analyzer. Philip used an iPad 2 to test the touchscreen interface he designed.The problem is that such consumer tablet is very vulnerable for the typical use of a Fluke product. A design study will give insight in which way a consumer tablet could be integrated in a new design for a power quality analyzer. The goal is to create a design proposal which complies to Fluke’s design standards. The design has to meet both esthetical and functional desires. After a design traject, a design proposal for the next generation power quality analyzer was created. The design features several functions Fluke wanted to integrate in previous models but never succeeded for different reasons. The design also has a different design than other Fluke products which could be an inspiration for Fluke’s other future designs. The presented future power quality analyzer shows that integrating a consumer tablet into a Fluke product is possible. This design is different than other brand’s analyzers, which makes the product unique on the market.
