The XR-3 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.
