The Hermes Standard Test Driver

If you need to test your The Hermes Standard implementation, you might want to do this using a The Hermes Standard Test Driver as developed by ASM for internal purposes. The SW is available for download here and can be used free of charge.

However, ASM will not accept any liability for any damage caused by dowloading, unpacking, installing, and/or running the software. Nor do they guarantee compatibility with the standard even when your implementation passes the test. Further, ASM cannot accept liability for any damage or other harm caused by products tested against the driver, regardless whether it failed or passed the test.

Please understand that you are using the device fully at your own risk. For more information, please refer to our terms of use.
With downloading any of the files hyperlinked at this site, you agree to those terms.
