Applied Instruments XR-3 Satellite Signal Level Meter
For more than 20 years installers have counted on Applied Instruments’ popular meters: MDU, SAT 9520, Sat Buddy, Super Buddy, AI Turbo S2 and the VSAT 7850. The legacy continues as the new XR-3 meter raises the bar even higher.
Rugged, Adaptable, Economically Efficient
The Applied Instruments XR-3 Satellite Meter is a revolutionary test instrument platform. The base unit is a rugged chassis, display, and portable power supply that accepts easily swappable modules for test signal measurement purposes. The XR-3 is economically efficient because it allows you to choose only the test modules that your application requires. In the future as your testing needs change, you’ll need only a new module, not an entire instrument. Test modules that “slide and click” into the XR-3 available now include DBS satellite, VSAT satellite, and cable TV / off-air broadcast. Other modules will follow. The XR-3 platform is ideal for installers and private cable operators that demand fast, easy signal measurements today and in the future.
The XR-3 is well suited for VSAT / Mobile Satcom, Military/Defense, Broadcasters, CATV Headend Satellite Antenna Farms, Teleports, and non-North American DBS / DTH (single and multidwelling) applications.
