Dec 3, 2020

With 35 years of innovation in Canada, Trilliant, an international leading provider of utility solutions for advanced metering and smart grid systems, has announced the launch of its Libra Series Edge-Ready Smart Electric Meter for residential, commercial and industrial applications. The meter is purpose-built to support the modern utility throughout its digital transformation journey.

Trilliant’s acute focus on customer needs and innovation within the Canadian marketplace has paved the way for the creation of this disruptive new offering. Trilliant’s open technology solutions enable customers to leverage the benefits of the Libra Series Edge-Ready Smart Electric Meter regardless of the networking technology they currently have in place, allowing utility providers to upgrade their current systems seamlessly, significantly reducing both risk and cost. 

“Our customers wanted something new — a meter that enables dynamic transactions, edge computing, backwards compatibility and flexibility, all at the very best cost — and we listened,” said Steven Lupo, Managing Director, Canada, at Trilliant. “As a technology company with significant international experience, we have launched Libra to go beyond the usual base functions, providing new functionality that utilities need without having to immediately replace existing infrastructure. We’re excited about empowering our customers with new solutions and security developed here in Canada that will truly disrupt the marketplace across North America.”

The Libra Series Edge-Ready Smart Electric Meter provides solutions that customers have identified as key to the development of a new energy economy:

  • Advanced Communications Support

Trilliant’s Libra metering solution includes a new, ground-breaking dual-band network that offers unsurpassed flexibility in the AMI 2.0 upgrade path, including full backwards support for existing systems, and in-home connectivity required to support the new energy marketplace. The Libra meter allows for multiple communications technologies to be supported simultaneously, including a combination of RF Mesh, LPWAN, Cellular, and others.  

  • Edge Computing and Analytics

The Libra’s advanced communications solution allows peer-to-peer data exchange along with connectivity to other public networks providing real-time data to grid, IoT, and other sensors on the distribution system. Support for Edge applications and a unique development ecosystem are also supported.  

  • Field Serviceability – Uninterrupted Service

The Libra meter is the first to introduce serviceability of communication solutions in the field, without disrupting power service or Measurement Canada/other meter seals. The meter battery is also accessible for easy serviceability in the field. 

“Trilliant will continue to support true interoperability of various metering manufacturers in the marketplace. With Libra, we are elevating that interoperability with the necessary functionality, future proofing, and application support needed by our customers. In Canada, Trilliant is proud to continue to support the Canadian manufacturing sector as part of our unique approach to customer success,” added Lupo.

The Trilliant Libra Series Edge Ready Smart Electric Meter will be offered across all standard American National Standards Institute (ANSI) meter types across the U.S. and Canada in late 2021.
