Fiber System Settings

Use the Fiber System Settings button to set the default values for some Fiber Manager properties. The values set in the Fiber System Settings window are the default settings for all users that connect to the database. However, if a user modifies a setting using the Fiber User Settings window in ArcMap, it will override the same setting in Fiber System Settings (ArcCatalog).

The Fiber System Settings button does not appear on the ArcFM Solution toolbar by default, so you may need to add it. Select a geodatabase in ArcCatalog to enable the Fiber System Settings button. It remains disabled on all other nodes.

NOTE: As of 10.2.1a, X-style networks are no longer supported and tracing does not follow X-style tracing components.

Use Directional Tracing: Directional tracing allows the user to determine in which direction the trace travels. When this option is disabled, the trace travels in all available directions. If directional tracing is enabled, then the trace travels only in the direction defined by the user. A full description of directional tracing and how it interacts with Y-style tracing is available in the Appendix.

Splice Type: Use this field to determine which splice type is selected by default when the user opens the Connection Manager in ArcMap. This field works in conjunction with the Default A Loss and Default B Loss fields to provide default values for each splice type.

Default A/B Loss: Use this field to set the Default A Loss and Default B Loss values for each splice type. Select a value in the Splice Type field, set the Default A Loss and Default B Loss values, and then click Apply.

Display Connection Manager Disconnect Warnings: When a user disconnects a particular feature (e.g., Backside Port) in the Connection Manager, he or she may be presented with a warning (if the SUPPORTSDISCONNECTWARNING model name has been properly assigned). Deselect this option if you want to suppress the warning message.
