TESCO also designed the first load boxes and transformer burden test equipment, and became the industry standard for electric meter testing throughout the 20th century. Utilities all across North America have used and relied on TESCO products for 117 years.

As older meters are replaced with newer AMI meters, they go through a retirement test to ensure it was still functioning properly. This is a TESCO 16-position Retirement Board in use at a Utility. The meters are locked in place, a barcode is scanned to retrieve the meter information (serial number, model number, etc) and then the test begins. The Retirement Board will either “pass” or “fail” the meter.
