FLUKE'S 670 LANMETER WINS NEW PRODUCT ACHIEVEMENT AWARD AT COMNET

 EVERETT, Wash., Feb. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The new 670 LANMeter, a revolutionary network troubleshooting tool introduced by John Fluke Mfg. Co. Inc. (AMEX: FKM) in January 1993, was awarded ComNet's New Product Achievement Award, Fluke announced today. ComNet, one of the industry's leading trade shows for computer networking professionals, sponsored the event to recognize innovators in the rapidly expanding field of network computing.
 Prior to the show, a panel of 10 judges from leading business and trade publications, research firms and academia selected 10 semi-finalists from all of the submitted entries to participate in the competition. The 10 products chosen as semi-finalists were then displayed at the show, where the show attendees voted for the winners.
 The 670 was selected as one of the five winners of the industry's notable award. Fluke, a leading manufacturer of compact electronic test tools, introduced the 670 as part of its 600 series, a new category of troubleshooting tools for LANs.
 "We're pleased to receive this industry recognition for a new product introduction," said Joe Martins, Fluke's LAN Products Business Unit manager. "We feel that the 670 is a revolutionary product and will offer LAN managers a better choice in network troubleshooting equipment."
 The 670 is an easy-to-use, handheld network analyzing tool that offers sophisticated troubleshooting capabilities. Designed to combine the best features of the highly complex and costly protocol analyzer with the functionality of the low-end cable scanner, the 670 performs all of the most commonly used network maintenance tests.
 "As a market-driven company, Fluke capitalized on its strengths and success in the electronics industry to strategically expand into the LAN industry and successfully develop the 670 LANMeter and other networking tools," said Bill Parzybok, Fluke chief executive officer.
 Fluke's mission is to be the leader in new and growing markets for compact, professional electronic test tools. Fluke focuses on customers in service, manufacturing test, and quality functions in a variety of industries. Founded in 1948, Fluke is headquartered in Everett.
 In 1987, Fluke and Philips T&M (the Netherlands) formed a strategic alliance in which each company sells, supports and services their combined product lines and provides opportunities for technology transfer.
