The company says the device will help utilities save money and truck rolls by automating theft detection, distribution asset optimization and power quality management.

The device is a rugged, outdoor-rated solution that can be quickly installed, Tantalus notes. The company adds that TRUCheck can be integrated with nearly any advanced metering infrastructure network and any third-party meter data management platform.
