FOX-TEK Introduces New Lower Priced Monitor Lineup - Innovation Allows Cost Reduction Benefits to be Passed on to Customers



    TSX Venture Exchange symbol: FOX

    TORONTO, Sept. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - Fiber Optic Systems Technology, Inc.
("FOX-TEK"), (TSX-V: FOX), a developer and manufacturer of patented
non-intrusive sensing systems, today announced the release of the new lower
cost 2400 series fiber optic sensor monitors. These new monitors, based upon
the successful 3400 series FT sensor monitors, include cost savings from
improving manufacturing efficiency, from competitive parts sourcing, and from
the company's internal development of a replacement for one of the highest
cost components.
    Bob Leigh, Manager of Engineering for FOX-TEK said, "We've managed to
reduce the cost of the monitoring system by reengineering some components, and
we're still maintaining the quality of the performance." Mr. Leigh continued,
"We've also made the 2405 into a "workhorse" version of the 3405 by
eliminating the front panel display. This makes the 2405 perfectly suited for
remote monitoring through wired or wireless networks."
    Sam Cauchi, Director of Sales - Canada followed, "We're constantly
demonstrating the cost benefits of our systems to our customers. The
introduction of the 2405 FT sensor monitor means that there is an even greater
benefit when tracking internal corrosion and pipeline bending using our
systems.
    Dr Essam Zaghloul, president and CEO of FOX-TEK said, "This new line
demonstrates that FOX-TEK's ongoing program to deliver quality products that
meet our customer's needs is really paying off. Integrity management is a
critical part of the oil and gas business, and we are focused on delivering
the best solutions possible."
