ASE / Kalkitech has been at the forefront of utility industry protocol technology and standards for over 20+ years. Over the years, we have built immense knowledge and expertise in communication protocols and have built one of the most successful protocol test set products in the Utility Industry – the ASEDLMS Client Test Set (Previous known as Meter Explorer). We offer one of the most comprehensive sets of protocol libraries and tools in the world including legacy as well as more recent ones.
Our training programs are specifically for utility and OPEM technicians and engineers who are working to resolve critical meter communication issues. The programs mix essential protocol knowledge needed to understand and find communication problems together with in-depth training on the ASEDLMS Client and Server / Simulator tools and DLMS Protocol.
We offer two options for our customers:
Corporate Training Program
Regional Training Program
