The Desktop App Based on ElectronJS used for the Fire Resistance Testing of Electric Wires

SA Associates is one of the major producers of electric wires in the United State. The client needed a desktop application to test the electric wires against fire. The application should not only test the wires against set safety standards in the industry but also be able to test the wires’ resistance to fire. The client therefore designed to develop a desktop application using the ElectronJS unlike other JavaScript frameworks where most of its codes get converted to native code. Recently, ElectronJS has become one of the most commonly used frameworks preferred by developers for developing cross-platform desktop applications. This paper therefore discusses all the tasks the client faced, the challenges they encountered and what the outcome was.


Key Challanges

Key Challengs1Cross-Platform Compatibility
They wanted the application to be able to work on different operating systems including Windows, macOS, and Linux.
Key Challengs2Data Acquisition and Analysis
The application should be able to communicate with fire testing materials to test fire resistance.
Key Challengs3Real-Time Monitoring
The application should display data in form of real-timely monitoring during the fire resistance test.
Key Challengs4User-Friendly Interface
The developer wanted a simple interface that was user friendly to the engineers or technicians with little effort to learn on how to use the application.

Project Scope and Objectives

The project’s scope was limited to a single major cross-platform desktop application with the following objectives:

  • ElectronJS built application
  • Integration testing equipment
  • Improved website loading times and performance.
  • Real-time monitoring
  • A User-friendly Interface

Approach to Achieving Redesign Goals

In order to develop a cross-platform desktop application, the following four steps were followed:

Development with ElectronJS:

The development with ElectronJS was chosen to develop the desktop application that would work on the producers on various platforms. It allowed developers to have a single codebase across different operating systems for consistent and simple functionality.

Integration with Testing Equipment:

The Titansoft development team helped to integrate the development process with the integration of the software with the fire testing tools. The software development was carried on by working on the communication protocols and accurate data acquisition, supporting the testing tools.

Real-Time Data Visualization:

Real-time data were developed on the user software that displayed the data of fire tests conducted. The data comprised a visual representation of temperature, timing, and the condition of the wire. The visual data helped the engineers to track data-testing progression and make informed decisions.

User Interface Design:

The user interface design a was simple and friendly user software that was created to allow engineers to easily start and stop the test, view the data, and generate reports.

Implementation and Outcomes:

The implementation of the software running on ElectronJS led to the following outcomes in SA Associates.

Cross-Platform Compatibility:

The software was easily run on the Windows, macOS, and Linux that provided flexibility to the engineering team.

Accurate Data Acquisition:

The software running and supporting the interface support with the equipment allowed for a can de facto data utilization on fire resistance to the wire to enable more accurate analysis.

Real-Time Monitoring:

Real-time monitoring visual produced on the application helped engineers track the test process to make quick, informed decisions and be aware of safety hazards.


The software integration development reduced the time required for both testing and analysis for data production on fire resistance of material. * Safety standard compliance: The software helped to maintain and meet compliance with safety requirements as per the gain standards on fire safety, SA Associates.


the development of the ElectronJS-based desktop application for fire resistance testing has been successful. It proves the advantages of utilizing a cross-platform framework for complicated testing applications. The application has fulfilled the requirements of the project, ensuring that SA Associates has a fast and dependable tool for testing electrical wires against fire.

This case study underlines how the combination of real-time monitoring, integration of the feature-rich but simplistic design, and cross-platform integration work together to create a successful desktop application. All these development and integration stages allow creating a much safer and more productive testing navigation, helping the firm to meet its quality and safety goals.
