Instrumentation Excellence Awards

The Instrumentation Excellence Awards have recognised vacuum equipment specialist Leybold UK. The Leybold Hygienic Enclosure for vacuum pumps has won Product of the Year Cases and Enclosures. The Awards celebrate the best professionals, products, projects and companies across the test, measurement, sensing and control sectors.

PHOTONIS Group has acquired four companies (Xenics, Proxivision, Telops and Elmul) since December 2022. The worldwide leader in image intensifier tubes, the company has diversified its technologies and product portfolios to become the worldwide leader in detection and imaging technologies. To illustrate that strategy, PHOTONIS GROUP becomes EXOSENS
