Hong Kong, — Johnson Electric today announced the Saia-GMP line of shut-off valves for pre-paid gas meters. This expands the existing Saia-GM product line and strengthens Johnson Electric’s position as the technology leader in the gas meter valve market segment. The patented ball valve technology utilized in the Saia-GM product line has zero pressure drop resulting in higher grid efficiency.

The Saia GMP product line has the lowest discharging current which doubles the battery life and operating cycles. The valve is designed to meet EN 60079-11 for intrinsic safety and ATEX zone 1 and 2 compliance. Product options include valve position sensing and customization for any meter configuration.

“The pre-paid gas meter segment is a growing market in Europe and Asia,” said Jim Dick, Johnson Electric’s senior vice president of Strategic Marketing. “The Saia-GMP product technology addresses the critical requirements of safety, battery life and grid efficiency,” he added.
