MachineTalker® Enters Petroleum and Power Generation Industries

OEM and Distribution Agreement With Sense-Comm Technology to Deploy Remote Sensor and Control Networks Throughout Industrial Plants

SANTA BARBARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 23, 2006 -- MachineTalker®, Inc. (OTCBB: MTKN), developer of smart wireless security networks, has introduced its remote, intelligent sensors into the industrial sensing and control market through an OEM agreement with Sense-Comm Technology, LLC. Sense-Comm has targeted the petroleum industry, power generation companies and water treatment facilities for initial implementations of sensor networks designed to enhance operational efficiency, environmental safety and Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM).

According to Mikell Becker, President of Sense-Comm, "The wireless network capabilities of the MachineTalker® devices give us a robust platform upon which to develop solutions for industrial control applications. We intend to enhance data quality and timeliness by pushing intelligence out to the remote sensing points while interacting with existing distributed control systems that use either existing sensor types or advanced digital sensors."

A typical application in a refinery may encompass the use of accelerometers and other vibration sensors to detect potential problems in rotating equipment which can lead to catastrophic failure if left undetected. CBM requires periodic readings from sensors on important equipment to detect unusual conditions that are precursors to such failure. Other applications might include instrumenting a transfer pump in a Tank Farm with several temperature and vibration sensors, and rapidly sensing accidental emission of toxic or noxious gases from processing plants to increase personnel safety and reduce community impact.

Becker added, "Our decision to use MachineTalker technology for these applications was an easy decision. The capabilities that Talkers bring are light years ahead of anything else on the market. Moreover, wireless sensors that incorporate the latest technology can be implemented less expensively and more easily than typical wired sensor installations."

Roland F. Bryan, MachineTalker's CEO, concluded, "We are delighted to bring Sense-Comm into the fold as one of our OEMs. The markets they service will benefit from these sophisticated remote monitoring and control systems. We are pleased to see our products being used in such important applications."
