Sensor System Solutions' CTO to Speak at National Industrial Scale Association Spring Conference Omaha, Nebraska, April 24-25, 2006

Hank McCarrick, Chief Technology Officer, Will Discuss the Benefits of Using Intelligent Sensors for Weighing Applications

IRVINE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 12, 2006 -- Sensor System Solutions, Inc. (OTC BB: SSYO), a manufacturer of micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) sensors, intelligent sensor interface electronics and intelligent embedded control systems, today announced that its Chief Technology Officer, Hank McCarrick, will address the 19th Annual Spring Technical Conference of the National Industrial Scale Association, to be held on April 24th and 25th at Harrah's Casino and Hotel in Omaha, Nebraska.

Mr. McCarrick will speak on the benefits of using intelligent digital signal conditioners in weighing applications at this gathering of industrial scale professionals. He will cover the advantages of using modern wired and wireless electronic devices for calibrating scales and performing system testing and diagnostics for a wide variety of uses including: agricultural hopper scale applications, bulk powder dispensing, railway car uses, cargo crane scales, cattle weighing requirements, storage tank purposes, and fork lift weighing functions. He will further demonstrate the use of a Bluetooth-enabled PDA and PC in managing typical scale routines such as trimming, summing, simulation, zeroing, tare, calibration of multiple load cells, and how these systems can be substantial time savers while delivering highly accurate results.

"Digital signal conditioners provide significant benefits over analog devices," said Hank McCarrick, Chief Technology Officer. "Once you digitize a sensor signal there is a lot more that can be done with it that just isn't possible through straight analog technology. Sensor linearization, automatic calibration routines, diagnostics, even remote sensing, are all possible when sensors are interfaced to digital signal conditioners. The bottom line is, not only can sensor measurement be made more reliable, the acts of calibration, troubleshooting, and data distribution are tremendously simplified."

Hank McCarrick added, "The ability to handle multiple sensor inputs is where digital signal conditioners excel. These multi-input devices are perfect solutions for truck scales, rail scales, hopper scales, really any scale that has a collection of load cells that must be matched and summed. Among many benefits is the ability to perform diagnostic routines that not only isolate a bad load cell instantly, but can actually substitute a value for it, allowing a process to continue operation until it can be shut down and the load cell replaced."
