Need for Additional Resources to Strengthen the Internal Team in Further Development

In 2021, TSR-ELSITE embarked on the development of an energy monitoring solution based on the expertise of an electrical installation company. This innovation enables the transformation of the electrical panel into a hub for wireless sensors that support, among other things, environmental monitoring. There is a demand for such devices, especially on construction sites, events, and other environments where monitoring is challenging. The choice of the name Spine for the system reflects its role as a manager of energy-intensive loads, serving as the backbone of the entire project’s communication network. The outsourcing partnership between Hurja and TSR-ELSITE began in 2023 when TSR-ELSITE had completed the hardware development of the system and needed additional resources for application development to strengthen the company’s internal team in further development.

What is the Spine Real Time Electrical Network Management System?

Spine is a device that can be integrated into electrical panels, designed to gather diverse data such as passing voltage and electric current. Its mobile connectivity also allows for communication with nearby Bluetooth devices, further expanding its range of applications.

Installed beside or within electrical panels, Spine is particularly tailored for use on construction sites. It enables users to monitor the load of different centers and make necessary adjustments efficiently based on real-time data. Additionally, through the data collected by Spine, users can monitor construction site power grids in real-time and utilize it through various integrations. These integrations enable precise calculations of, for example, electricity usage costs and CO2 emissions.
