Andover, MA, US - IntelliSAW, a leading provider of next generation wireless sensor systems for smart grid applications announced today that it has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with EL PE Engineers ("EL PE"), headquartered in Vadodara, India.

As part of this agreement EL PE will provide exclusive distribution for IntelliSAW's innovative wireless/passive temperature monitoring system in the Indian market. In return for exclusive terms EL PE has agreed to a minimum revenue target over the next two years of USD $375K.
Existing critical power infrastructure in India is coming under increasing pressure in a period of growth in demand for power.

IntelliSAW's proprietary solution is wireless and does not require any power to the sensors, affording ease of installation and system commissioning while avoiding introducing any arcing or flashover concerns.
