Endings overview

The end overview provides an overview of the network paths of the selected object (duct, FO/TP cable, fibers/wires, connectors/pins) via a tracing.

The endings overview replaces the following former overviews:

  • Duct-end overview
  • Fiber-end overview
  • Connector-end overview
  • Countercoupling overview
  • Wire-end overview
  • Pin-end overview
  • Counterpin overview

Options

The options in the upper part of the overview do not differ for the different feature classes. Which options are activated depends on the respective feature class.

Tracing options

mceclip5.png The network paths are displayed up to the end point—even via patches.
mceclip7.png The network paths are displayed up to the points where only a patch continues.
mceclip8.png This displays all inactive paths. These are network paths that contain inactive splices or patches.

 

Filter options

mceclip9.png This displays only the network paths in the overview that have been connected with services.
mceclip10.png This displays the parent node (switching points) for start and end points.

 

Highlight

mceclip5.png This highlights the network path of the selected object in the graphic.
mceclip6.png This highlights the network paths of all objects in the overview in the graphic.
mceclip7.png This button cancels the selection of the elements in the graphic.
mceclip11.png You can select whether or not the network path of the selected object is to be highlighted. If so, you can choose between auto-highlighting with zoom or auto-highlighting without zoom over the entire network path. If you move the cursor to the next record, the network path of that object is automatically highlighted in the graphic.

 

Exporting

mceclip9.png The contents of the overview can be copied to the clipboard to paste them into another document.
mceclip10.png The contents of the overview can be exported in HTML format.
mceclip11.png The contents of the overview can be exported to Excel.
mceclip12.png The contents of the overview can be opened as a report.

 

Progress

mceclip12.png A progress bar is displayed when opening for the first time and switching between different options. Once the overview is complete, the bar is gray.
mceclip14.png The opening or rebuilding of the overview (after changing the options) can be aborted.

 

Ducts

The duct endings overview provides the user with a meaningful overview of the duct routing in a selected trench or higher-layer duct. A tracing provides a tabular overview of the ducts including all subordinate microducts. A button gives users the option of highlighting the corresponding duct routings in the graphic.

The creation of a duct endings overview with the “Overviews/Reports” menu can be started on the basis of these feature classes:

Segment Duct Manhole/Cabinet/Pole
mceclip1.png mceclip0.png mceclip2.png


The endings overview starts a tracing in both directions on the duct layer. The tracing takes place along the ducts connected via fittings up to their open end or the introduction into a manhole, cabinet or building.
The result of the duct endings overview is presented to the user in the following overview.
