Many specifiers hold installers to a higher standard than the approved cabling standards. It's not uncommon to see a fiber test specification with a connector loss of 0.5 dB instead of 0.75 dB. No problem. The DTX CableAnalyzer can handle that. You just need to create a custom test limit.
f you are able to view YouTube, we have a video that will run you through the procedure.
