Critical Space Solutions is well positioned to help power utility entities to better secure and monitor the generation, transmission, and distribution of reliable electricity to the customer base.

Utility Industry Experts from Technical Innovation's Critical Space Solutions team will be returning to DistribuTECH, the largest utilities industry event in the United States with over 10,000 attendees and more than 480 exhibitors. Exhibiting in Booth #2001 at the San Diego Convention Center February 3-5, TI will showcase technologies and trends unique to this dynamic market space.

Specializing in Electric Utility Operations – Distribution, Transmission & Generation Command & Control Environments, Mark Steele has over 15 years of experience in 24/7-use mission critical control rooms. Asked about trending technologies, Mark describes a new display technology that has the potential to remain in service for 15 years or longer. "This technology offers increased brightness, quality and longevity that not only enhances the operator's ability to interpret and act more quickly upon data, but builds in a tremendous cost-savings with the increased reliability and shelf-life of the video screen," explains Steele. While Critical Space Solutions is a global leader in Control Room Design and Integration, currently embarking on the design/build of the world's largest command center within the utilities sector, Steele stresses however, that TI is proficient at implementing control rooms of any scale, large or small. "We have hundreds of examples of control rooms showing operator consoles to video walls and everything in between. I look forward to talking with the show's attendees and helping them address their project needs."

John Merkel, a 28-year industry veteran in the command and control market, will also be on hand during the event. Having transitioned from the manufacturing and sales of dynamic mapboards for transmission and distribution utilities, John's focus over the past 12 years has evolved into real-time dynamic solutions that include high level video technology and advanced visualization platforms which are essential to allowing operators to make quick, accurate, operating decisions.

Tyler Bonner, VP Critical Space Solutions explains,"“We have a strong commitment to the power utility industry. I feel that Critical Space Solutions is well positioned to help power utility entities to better secure and monitor the generation, transmission, and distribution of reliable electricity to the customer base. With over 15 years of dedicated focus on the command and control space, our goal is to make the control room operator more comfortable, efficient, and precise in making real time decisions. Only by providing that operator a great environment to work within, and great technology to show situational awareness, can that operator be successful. That is our ultimate goal."
