Custom cable setup - DSP 4x00 CableAnalyzer

The best way to show this is in the form of an example. This also works in the same way for the DSP-100 and DSP-2000 CableAnalyzers.

Note:
To protect customers purchasing cabling systems, you cannot change the limit lines for NEXT, PSNEXT, ELFEXT, PSELFEXT, Attenuation and Return Loss. Any custom tests are clearly marked with an Asterisk, e.g. *Cat5*.
