Radian Research Mission Statement

Radian Research is committed to being the globally recognized leader for providing innovative and technologically superior products of high quality while maintaining a metrology capability in power and energy measurement that is second to none.

Radian Research Company History and Highlights

Imagine a company based in Lafayette, Indiana that researches new power and energy measurement technologies and develops electrical measurement instruments offering accuracy levels that are arguably the best in the world. Imagine that these products are sold in nearly 50 different countries each year. Imagine that these products play a cornerstone role in maintaining the integrity of the watt-hour for electricity commerce worldwide. Imagine that nearly every one of the 10 million new electricity meters installed each year in the US, such as the one on your home or place of employment, has been calibrated for accuracy against this company's Energy Reference Standards.

Imagine a company founded upon innovation, technology breakthrough and outstanding customer service. This company is Radian Research, Inc. Radian is a privately held corporation founded by Glenn A. Mayfield in 1982. As an electrical measurement physicist, Mr. Mayfield realized that watt-hour reference standards would require a technological advancement to be accurate and stable enough to test new emerging electronic watt-hour revenue billing meters. Therefore, he established the Company's focus as the research, development and production of advanced power and energy measurement instruments for the worldwide electric utility industry.

In 1985 Radian Research began production of its first product, the RM-10 Portable Watt-hour Standard. The RM-10 provided specific innovative features, developed by Glenn Mayfield, which improved accuracy, enhanced testing efficiency and provided greater safety. Totally auto-ranging inputs for current (0 to 50 amps), voltage (60 to 600 volts) and auxiliary power (80 to 600 volts) made it impossible to damage the unit by applying the signal to the wrong tap. A true watt-hour display with a Kh of 1 on all ranges allowed for a much simpler energy meter error calculation. Remote digital display gating eliminated the need for switching the potential while further enhancing accuracy. With its high accuracy, innovative features, and a weight of only 5.5 pounds, the RM-10 soon became the number one selling watt-hour standard in North America. It should be further emphasized that the Radian RM-10 was the first energy metering instrument in the world to provide a wide range auxiliary power input as well as the first to provide an auto-ranging voltage input - these were innovations by Glenn Mayfield that dramatically changed the technology of energy meters and energy standards made by all manufacturers of such products around the world.

In 1986 Radian Research introduced its first primary watt-hour standard, the RM-11. The RM-11 was by far the most accurate over a wide range, stable and lightest weight self-contained primary watt-hour reference standard manufactured in the world, up until Radian introduced the RD Dytronic line of Reference Standards. The RM-11 also provided many of the same innovative features which were previously introduced with the RM-10. The RM-11 was so accurate and stable that many laboratories in the US began transferring the watt-hour directly to NIST instead of the traditional DC to AC transfer methods.

From 1986 to 1990 Radian added various watt-hour meter testing accessories to its product line. These accessories assisted in the automation of testing induction and electronic watt-hour meters. During this same time Radian Research was investing several million dollars into the research and development of an automated AC laboratory reference system product. Then, in 1990 Radian Research introduced the RS-703A Syntron Automated Calibration System with an accuracy of +/- 0.005% +/- traceability uncertainty.

By 1993 Radian had experienced significant growth requiring it to purchase land and have a 22000 square feet custom facility built. This facility became the Corporate Headquarters for Radian Research and houses all aspects of the business including a state-of-the-art surface mount production facility.

From 1993 to 2003 Radian continued to introduce new technologies and new subsequent products, including the various models of the RD Dytronic line of single phase and three phase multifunction reference standards and DC to AC transfer standards. The RD standards contain Radian designed Analog to Digital Converters optimized for power and energy measurement. Radian's RD line of energy reference standards had the broadest offering of models and functionality options as compared to any other manufacturer of energy reference standards in the world. The RD line replaced the RM line of energy reference standards.

In 2005 Radian Research purchased Utility Test Equipment Company (UTEC).The acquisition of UTEC enabled Radian to significantly expand its product offering to the electric utility industry by providing turnkey field test systems for energy meters and current transformers as well as individual equipment pieces that allow customers ultimate flexibility in meeting their testing and calibration requirements.

In 2008 Radian expanded its facility to 30,000 square feet with a new Research and Development Laboratory coupled with new offices and a new break room. The corporation also went through a restructuring of its ownership by purchasing all of its issued stock and forming an Employee Stock Ownership Plan and thus became a 100% Employee Owned Corporation.

In 2009 Radian Research, Inc. was recognized as one of the 50 top Companies to Watch in the state of Indiana. This is a prestigious award given to those companies that have a high growth of revenue and accelerated job creation. The company also starting shipping its next generation of Automated Laboratory Calibrators, the RS-933 which features expanded current sourcing capabilities.

In 2010, in support of extended research and development investment, Radian Research once again expanded its facility for a new 6,000 square feet of additional Research and Development Laboratory space.

In 2011 Radian Research acquired 100% of WECO stock to combine the companies under one ESOP umbrella. The combination of RADIAN and WECO created the world's largest and most technologically innovative provider of energy reference standards, advanced energy meter testing systems and automated laboratory calibration systems. This strategic combination brings together the strengths of WECO's WATT-Net and Winboard software with RADIAN's accurate and precise energy measurement to deliver leading edge testing solutions for all classes of electricity meters including the very latest advancements in Smart Metering. Radian Research now operates out of two facilities ... a 40,000 square feet facility in Lafayette, Indiana and a 25,000 square feet facility in Pearl, Mississippi.

In 2013 Radian Research formed a new business unit named WECO Software Solutions offering a variety of software products ranging from utility meter shop asset management enterprise systems to meter test data management to test system control. No other company offers the wide range of software solutions and integrated solutions with hardware and software to the utility industry for meter shop applications. Our software solutions are designed and developed by our software team to provide the functionality required by our customers.
