18 T-BOX Low Power Product DIFFERENTIATORS Fully integrated (All in one package) Ultra low power Redundant batteries Web technology Push communications Multi-communications Alarm management Historical data logging Simple configuration tools Programmable controls / logic Intelligent End Device (IED) protocols

19 DIFFERENTIATORS T-BOX Low Power Product Differentiators (1 of 2): Fully integrated – Complete monitoring, telemetry and automation functionality is provided in a single package. T-BOX WM standard enclosure including internal battery eliminates added costs and scheduling delays due to systems integration work. Ultra low power consumption allows use of the lowest cost, lithium battery or solar power sources. T-BOX WM provides long battery life. The integral battery in T-BOX WM further reduces costs related to integration, installation, and operation. Redundant Batteries keep the RTU operating even when one battery fails and provide flexibility in scheduling site visits to replace a battery. Web technology - Integral Web server – Web pages are accessible to users, anywhere, anytime. PC-based Web pages also provide all, local HMI operations when maintenance personnel visit the sites, thus saving the cost of additional software. Push technology – End user operations personnel are immediately notified of alarms and important events without the need for polling the RTU. This takes best advantage of inexpensive data communications plans on public networks. Multi-communications – Our range of integral, data communications equipment (DCEs) means that the RTU will work at all customer locations. Since most data loggers and other products intended for these applications have integrated only one or two DCEs, many customer installations are not covered.

20 DIFFERENTIATORS T-BOX LP Product Differentiators (2 of 2): Alarm management – The T-BOX alarm system detects alarm conditions and reports them using Push Technology. Alarm management ensures that un-acknowledged alarms will be escalated. Even cellular phone users can acknowledge alarms and send text commands to the T-BOX RTU. Historical data logging – T-BOX data logging capability retains historical information, such as tank levels, in both tabular and trend graph formats and allows users to adapt operations for the highest efficiency. Trends can also assist in maintenance management and continuous improvement. Simple Tools - WebForm Studio – An integral tool for building Web pages considerably speeds the configuration process and ensures there will be no software integration problems. Users will also appreciate that no programming is needed. Programmable control – Even when control functions are not necessary, users very often need to write some code. Our choice of programming via IEC LD (Ladder Diagram), Basic, or Microsoft Automation provides considerable flexibility. These capabilities are very uncommon in products intended for monitoring, only. Intelligent End Device (IED) protocols – We have developed an extensive range of protocols for flow meters, security devices, sensors, etc. These are lacking in most, competitive products.
