Electronics system supplier for measurement and control applications

Engineering house: Engineering Spirit

At Engineering Spirit BV, we have been a reliable partner for our customers for years when it comes to developing and delivering electronics products. We have been helping our customers maintain, renew and optimize their products since 1991, so they can be leading in their market segment.

Additionally, we offer our customers the unique opportunity to have control over their embedded software, even if they are not proficient in C or C++. Thanks to our experience in PLC programming (with IEC 61131-3), we can also integrate PLCs into our systems.

Choose Engineering Spirit BV, the reliable partner for all your electronics design needs.

We work for companies that build devices and machines in series. We develop their electronics so that the solutions are optimal and the cost are low. We operate close to our customers as a development department for them so that they do not have the costs and worries of their own department.

With our solutions, however, you retain the ability to control the embedded software yourselves, thus protecting your investment and your technology.

Member of FHI (Federatie Het Instrument) - Industriële elektronica .

We operate globally; our office in the centre of the Netherlands can be reached within an hour or less from the regions of Amsterdam, Utrecht, Rotterdam, Den Bosch, Eindhoven, but also Breda, Nijmegen, Arnhem and Twente.

1991 - Foundation

With experience in firmware and elaborate PC software, Engineering Spirit was started. The first project was for the CBS to create (the first) system for administering theoretical driving exams.

1993 - Forth cross compilers

In the 80s, Forth was used on 6502 processors. Compiling large programs took a long time.
The developed Forth cross-compiler for 6502 and 6809 compiled a whopping 25 times faster and greatly aided our customer in their product development.

1996 - First USB implementation in the Netherlands

With the USB 1.0 specification out and the first chips available, Engineering Spirit created measuring equipment that was connected to the PC via USB.

2000 - PC software for analysis

Extensive software for the analysis of electroantennograms and electroantennographic detection for biological laboratories.

2005 - High-speed DVB equipment

For the testing of TVs and set-top boxes, manufacturers need equipment that can produce known signals. The developed series of interface boards is based on USB and PCI interfaces, and the digital video processing is done with an FPGA.

2010 - Battery testers for Lithium-ion batteries

The accumulated knowledge about Lithium-ion batteries has (partly) resulted in the development of testers for, among others, bike batteries. These testers determine the capacity and internal resistance of the battery and also test the charger used.

2015 - Smart Battery Management System (BMS)

Many batteries are equipped with a ‘protector’ board, which was sufficient to pass the (then-current) certification. Given the amount of problems and fires, it was clear that a BMS (instead of a protector) was needed. The developed Smart BMS greatly reduces the problems and also provides a good State-of-Charge indication. This way, the battery is not unexpectantly empty, but you see it coming and can recharge in time.

2020 - Smart BMS for unmanned vehicles

Battery for autonomous robots for warehouse transport. Here, the State-of-Charge reading is very important to avoid unforeseen failures, which can cause traffic jams in the lanes.

2022 - Embedded PLC

Because multiple customers had the need for faster program adjustments in their system, we have equipped our systems with the standard PLC programming language. This way, our customers can make adjustments themselves and are not dependent on us for this. This greatly speeds up the adjustment and testing cycle, making it easier to decide to implement a change. This ultimately leads to a better product with more success in the market.
