* First year savings only. Includes engineering resources for physical audit, storeroom review, data compilation, and ERP and MOC support, which are provided at no charge. Based on audit of 1,0000 installations, requiring two engineers for one week.

** Annual Ongoing Savings reflects repeated savings in inventory and maintenance costs and enhanced reliabilty from improving, standarizing and consolidating the gauge popluation. Based on industry data and WIKA findings from more than 250 audits.
