XR-3

Portable Modular Test Instrumental

 

From satellite dish alignment, to UHF off-air antenna pointing, to cable TV MER measurements, the XR-3 is the meter for you!
The XR-3 is the most capable meter offered by Applied Instruments. It’s more durable than the popular Super Buddy meter, and has added features and performance. 

The XR-3’s modular design with field swappable modules provides wide versatility to fit different measurement applications, including DBS satellite, VSAT satellite, VHF/UHF off-air, and CATV (QAM and analog).
The XR-3 is great for installing and troubleshooting DISH SmartBox, Blonder Tongue, and other SMATV headend systems often used in hotels, multi-dwelling units, and institutional facilities.
