Saft Rechargeable lithium?ion cells Enhance Alta Industrial Automation Ltd.'s Wireless M2M Solutions

VALDESE, North Carolina, April 18, 2012 ? Saft, the world's leading designer and manufacturer of high?tech industrial batteries, today announces cooperation with Alta Industrial Automation Ltd. ("AIA") an innovator of wireless solutions. AIA is utilizing a Saft rechargeable lithium?ion battery in their Solar Battery product line for Class 1 Div 2 hazardous environments and extreme temperature operation. AIA's Solar Battery solutions provide power, data acquisition and wireless internet communication to simplify installation, maintenance and support of remote hazardous environment sensors.

"Our solar system, combined with the Saft rechargeable lithium?ion battery, allows AIA customers to achieve end?to?end monitoring and control of their fixed or mobile assets in extreme climatic conditions," said Gary Allbee, president, AIA. "Our customers can now quickly and conveniently connect their assets online to the internet and perform operational updates through our eTrackDataTM server solution."
"With the AIA Solar Battery installed, we have substantial operating cost savings, and we no longer deal with battery exchange and disposal. More importantly, in the most harsh low temperature conditions, our data collection and process is more reliable with the Solar Battery as our primary power source," reported Peter A. Hebert, Corrosion Technologist with Taqa North Ltd.
During the week of April 30, 2012, the two companies plan to partner for a demonstration of the solar battery system at the Offshore Technology Conference to be held in Houston.
"This program extends Saft's experience in providing intrinsically safe, high?performance batteries for the oil and gas industry," said Thomas Alcide, general manager of Saft's Specialty Battery Group and president, Saft America Inc.
