 Compatible with XR-3 Modular Test Instrument
 Friendly user interface
 Satellite ID by "align-to-lock" or "automatic scan“
 ID multi-lock algorithm eliminates false positives
 Powers LNBs and multi-switches
 Use for L, C, X, Ku, or Ka band applications
 High sensitivity assures alignment optimization
 Geo-sensitive "Field Guide" software database stores all compatible satellites and transponders per global region
 Program and store up to 256 custom transponders
 Controls multi-LNBs/switches with 22kHz DiSEqC tone
 Manually tune to custom transponders using front panel keypad
 Audible tone for signal lock or peak
 Store measurements for Proof-of-performance reporting
 "Limit Scan" Pass/Fail for key transponders
 Displays antenna settings (AZ / EL / Skew) based on user's postal code or latitude and longitude coordinates
 Field replaceable type F barrel connectors
 Fast system boot-up time in less than 5 seconds
