Splice

Splices are point objects and serve to connect different line objects, such as fibers, fibers with connectors, fibers with splitter paths, or fibers with patch fibers. The splices must be placed in trays.

Tabs

Users can find information about the service, tray, installation location and connections in the “General” home tab.

Attribute Description
Service The service with which the splice was connected is displayed. Double-clicking in the list box opens the form for the service. (1)
Active This indicates whether the splice is active or not. (2)
Tray Information about the tray in which the splice has been placed can be found here. The number and designation of the tray as well as the splice location are displayed. Double-clicking in the list box opens a view with all the information about the corresponding tray. (3)
Installation location The feature class and the name of the point where the splice was created are displayed. The installation location (side A or B) of the tray is also displayed. The form for the point is opened via the mceclip2.png button. The mceclip1.png button highlights the point in the illustration. (4)
Work order The name of the work order with which the splice was activated or disconnected is displayed. The person and connection/disconnection date specified in the work order are displayed. (5)
Connections The elements connected to the splice are displayed. (6)
The names/numbers of the fibers and the cable sections in which they were created are displayed. If a cable alias has been assigned, this is also displayed. (a)
The name of the connector is displayed. (b)
The names of the splitter paths and the splitters in which they were created are displayed. (c)
The name of the patch fiber is displayed. (d)
Information. Information on the FO splice can be entered. (7)
Details The number of stored splice data items is displayed under Details. The form for the splice data is opened via the mceclip2.png button. (8)
Documents This displays whether documents have been attached to the form. (9)
