New solution for field meter testing launched by Radian Research


Lafayette, IN, U.S.A. — (METERING.COM) — April 14, 2011 – The RB-10 Bantam Lite has been launched by Radian Research Inc. as the first in a new generation of portable field meter test solutions.  

The Bantam line of portable test solutions are designed for accurate, fast simple to use closed link testing of all single and polyphase energy meters. The Bantam Lite combines reliability and advanced test capabilities in a light weight meter test solution. Equipped with Radian’s RD-20 or RD-21 solid-state reference standard the Bantam Lite provides the accuracy and traceability required to meet the increasing test demands of today’s electricity metering.

The Bantam’s handheld controller automates testing allowing quick accurate test and data storage eliminating operator error and return visits. Bantam’s ability to fully test meters on-site reduces meter expense in maintained inventory by utilities allowing the meter to remain in service and not returned to the shop for testing.

Designed with real world information based on customer evaluation, other features of the Bantam include:

  • Lightweight less than 30 lbs
  • Safety and ease of use
  • Closed link meter test compatibility
  • Wide voltage range -69 to 480
  • Independent testing – with or without PC.
