The XR-3W 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-3W’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-3W 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. Also available without WiFi as the XR-3
