Estimate fibre path length by db loss

Friday, 13th September 2013

This is a quick and dirty calculator to estimate the fibre path length when given the db loss measured on that path and a bunch of guesses of the connectors and other fixed lossy components of the circuit

Estimate fibre distance by db loss measured path loss in db

quantity of splices
quantity of connectors
quantity of optical taps ( @ 3db per tap )

db loss per splice
db loss per connector
db loss per km of fibre
