Selecting the "Adapter Type" in SETUP - DSP FTA Series

The analyzer provides graphical help screens to show you how to make proper fiber connections for testing. Since the connections are not the same for all types of adapters, you will want to select the adapter type to match the connector on the fiber links you will be testing. Selecting the adapter type will be particularly helpful when you are testing Small Form Factor (SFF) fiber optic links.
Rotate the dial to SETUP and press the F4 Page Down softkey until you find the adapter type setting.
