Custom Length Based Loss Limits in CertiFiber Pro

If you are testing an "engineered link" using custom loss values for connectors and/or splices, you will need to know how to configure a custom test limit. A YouTube video is also available detailing how this is done.

Puede crear hasta 20 límites de comprobación personalizados en el CertiFiber Pro.

  1. Change to the PROJECT you wish to put this in or tap PROJECT from the home screen.
  2. Tap NEW TEST. (Si el módulo: no indica CertiFiber Pro, toque Módulo para cambiarlo a CertiFiber Pro)
  3. Tap Test Limit > MORE > Custom > MANAGE > Create.
  4. With a Fixed limit you will not have the chance to change the loss values for connectors and splices, this is for a single loss value for the whole link.
  5. Tap the Connector Loss button to adjust the loss limit per connector:



Nota:  Tipo de pérdida: El conector y el módulo MPO son descriptores para el mismo campo de "pérdida de conexión".  The idea of the MPO Module limit is to have a single loss value for the whole MPO connector as they are often specified. Le recomendamos que haga los límites de pérdida personalizados separados para el conector y el módulo MPO si está comprobando ambos en un sitio.  Use el campo Nombre para diferenciar los dos límites personalizados.

  1. To set the loss for splices, select the Splice Loss button:


  1. For this example, I have named this custom limit “KB Example”; this will be the limit name on the test report. (Limit names can be up to 25 characters)
  2. Tap “Loss/km @ [wavelength]” for any custom loss values you would like to use for the fiber.
  3.  Once done, tap SAVE to store your new the custom test limit:


  1. Si toca el límite personalizado aquí, lo regresará a la pantalla TEST SETUP (CONFIGURACIÓN DE COMPROBACIÓN) con este límite seleccionado, que se muestra a continuación. Notice the placement of the asterisks before and after the custom limit name, this is to identify that it is a custom limit and they cannot be removed. 


  1. Don't forget to tap SAVE again to store your new SETUP, then select it and tap Use Selected to move it to the HOME screen.
