DLMS / COSEM Protocol Training

ASEDLMS Test Set Training Classes

Applied Systems Engineering (ASE) has been at the forefront of utility industry protocol technology and standards for over 30 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.  Our training programs are specifically for utility technicians and engineers who are working to resolve critical DLMS / Smart Meter communication issues. The programs mix essential protocol knowledge needed to understand and find communication problems together with in-depth training on the ASEDLMS.

We offer FREE 6 month subscription license when you sign up for our Online Training. If you are an existing ASE Test Set customer, you get 6 months subscription renewal / warranty extension FREE as well.
