MachineTalker Debuts Its Explosion-Proof Remote Sensor Control Package at the ISA Show in Houston

Vibration Sensor for Condition-Based Maintenance Located With Honeywell OneWireless™ Demonstration in the ISA100 Wireless Booth

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - October 2, 2007) - MachineTalker, Inc. (OTCBB: MTKN) today announced that the company is demonstrating its Condition-Based Maintenance product for wireless monitoring of vibration at the annual ISA Show in Houston, Texas. MachineTalker, Inc. has been a member of the ISA100 Wireless standards committee since the committee's inception in the summer of 2006.

MachineTalker® has integrated its wireless mesh network with sensors from IMI and looks forward to using the Honeywell OneWireless solution to provide secure and faultless operation in the industrial environment. At the show, the company is featuring its hardened explosion-proof assembly that is housed inside an Adalet enclosure. This protective cover will permit installation of its mesh networking products in dangerous industrial locations.

The detection of conditions that may lead to equipment failure will allow personnel to fix or correct a problem before it occurs. This predictive method is known as Condition-Based Maintenance. Accelerometers mounted on rotating machinery can indicate excessive vibration that is a precursor to failure which, if caught in time, can prevent expensive repairs and even catastrophic breakdown.

Yet these vibration sensors are only now coming into wider use due to what has been the expensive cost of "wired" installations. The vibration sensors are mounted on rotating devices that are far away from control rooms and are difficult to install using wired networks. Hundreds of feet of conduit must be installed and integrated from remote site to central control room. The cost of wired installations can far exceed the cost of the sensors and associated electronics and can take weeks or months to install.

MachineTalker however is bringing a reasonable cost solution to the problem. A wireless implementation can be installed in a day or less, even in a hazardous environment. The MachineTalker Class 1 Division 1 wireless monitor can be mounted within a short distance of a sensor that is attached to rotating machinery. Vibration sensors have to be mounted appropriately on the motor or gearbox, and most sensors require power to be turned on prior to measurement. The MachineTalker unit can be pre-programmed to turn on the power and then perform its data acquisition phase. There is no configuration required by the operator, as the unit is ready to go upon installation.
