Polytec's MPV-800 Multipoint Vibrometer is recognized with the prestigious R&D 100 Award

The winners of the 55th annual R&D 100 Awards - an international competition that recognizes the 100 most exceptional innovations in science and technology from the past year - were revealed on Friday, Nov. 17, during a black-tie awards ceremony held at the Walt Disney World Swan Resort in Orlando, Florida.

The R&D 100 Awards have long been considered the most prestigious global recognition of invention and innovation. In the category “Analytical/Test,” Polytec was distinguished with a 2017 R&D 100 award for their new MPV-800 Multipoint Vibrometer.

By using laser light to avoid loading or contact with the test object, this vibrometer was selected as the ideal solution for the simultaneous multi-channel measurement of transient, non-periodic (random) vibration phenomena. As a further distinction, Polytec also received the coveted R&D Magazine Editor’s Choice Award for the MPV-800, an award that recognizes the best-of-the-best among the other R&D 100 Award winners.

This latest award, one of many that Polytec products have received, is a reminder of Polytec’s history of technical excellence and innovation applied to solving important problems for engineers.
