Protocol analyzers

Construct, send and receive IEC protocol communications frames

Our protocol analyzers helps clients analyze, monitor, capture and store IEC protocol communication frames.

The DNV - Energy Protocol analyzers display communication packets in user-friendly, readable format in the various selectable protocol layers and automatically analyze the frames. The Analyzers also report the detected frame and inter-frame errors, because protocol knowledge is incorporated into the program. This enables engineers without detailed protocol knowledge to use and understand the output of the tools.

DNV - Energy offers protocol analyzers for IEC61850, 60870 protocols and for DLMS / COSEM.
For each protocol, a brochure is available in the section below.
