Named User Licensing

All products within the Trimble Electrical Designer Suite (ProDesign, Protect, SingleCable and PowerNet) are now powered through named user licensing. This means that users have dedicate licences assigned to their own Trimble ID and ensures everyone uses the same, up-to-date calculations and content. This empowers you to significantly reduce the risk of design discrepancies that occur when different versions of the software are used within your team.



To learn more about this and moving to a Trimble Electrical Designer subscription, call our sales team on 01908 608833 (opt 2). If you have any questions regarding the licence management and accessing the product, please contact our support team via the details below.

Technical Assistance

Our Technical Support team uses a support tool which allows them to view and control users’ machines remotely. This is only ever undertaken with the user’s permission – and while being supervised by the user.



Our applications have a menu option link to the support web page containing details of this assistance should it be required. For more information, please contact our support team via Amtech Support@Trimble.com or call +44 (0)1908 608833 and then choose Option 1, and then Option 1 again.
