About this app

Fiber optic color code is a searchable expanding chart that translates the color code of Loose Tube and Ribbon fiber optic cables including Ribbon in Loose Tube cable types. Look up cable count, reverse cable count, custom start fiber, straight sheath count or search by inverse color code with an expanding chart of fibers from a single screen.

This app shall be used only as a handy secondary reference tool as we know there are mistakes made in the field and incorrect records that always need to be taken into account. Use of a tone source as a primary identifier will always be more accurate.

• 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 32 and 36 strand Fiber Loose Tube (1728F+)
• 12 Fiber Ribbon (1728F) single core.
• Customizable Ribbon in Loose Tube/Spider Ribbon from 1 to 24 tubes/binders and 1 to 144 ribbons (up to 6912F max) by app user variable configurations.

How to configure Ribbon in Loose Tube / Spider Ribbon:

Input Cable Count~
While not necessary to use in the app. You can enter full complex cable count that can be split into the group size of your choice at the Count Input screen. Then you can select the 'Color Code' button to have your custom cable count placed in the easy to use expanding fiber chart. Where you can locate a loose tube or ribbon cables fiber optic color code, sheath count, and your own custom entered complex cable count on fiber optic cables of up to 3456F in size.

Locate fibers with or without cable counts in the 'Find a Fiber' option. Simply enter a strand # without a cable count or enter the 'Cable,Fiber' if you're using a complex cable count (app auto detects if there's a count or not). The app will then auto expand and place index pointers at the found fibers locations.

Smart Save ~
Lets you save up to 3 cable counts on your device. (Cable counts are not required to operate app)

Smart Save short instruction:
Enter a count, select one of the 3 positions to save to, then click the 'Color Code' button.

Smart Save color legend:
Green= Vacant position
Black= Count already in position
Red= Existing count to be overwritten
Blue= Saved successfully

~Double Space Auto Punctuation:
Easily enter a cable count using the apps built in double space auto-punctuation feature by:
1) Enter cable name followed by 2 spaces (app automatically places a **comma)
2) Enter the low fiber range followed by 2 spaces (app automatically places a dash)
3) Enter the high fiber range followed by 2 spaces (app automatically drops down for next line of count)

**Customers that use a Colon (":") for cable name and fiber range separation: The first time you enter a cable count you will need to manually enter your first line of count using a colon to set the app to use colon separators. To set back to using a comma again you just need to manually enter a comma in the first line to set the app properties for Double Space Auto Punctuation.

So far so good, doing a osp job , needed a quick reference, the right bottom 🌟 star I thought was a like or rate button is actually a really useful button you can change how many fibers in a tube / not sure in a ribbon ? But super useful when working with different type of manufacturers who don't always follow the 12 fiber in a loose tube format . Thank you good , quick , easy app , I will advise to go to his blog link in the app description , that how I found out about the star button .

Thanks for sharing your experience with using the app. Very helpful. Any one of the 5 lower RILT positions from the cable type (star) button can be set to a single super tube (central buffer tube) w/ up to 144 ribbons and 1 to 48 fibers per ribbon. Thanks again! Keep safe and be well.

This is a great tool for technicians! I've managed to use it a few times at work and it's saved me a lot of time. Although I have to say, the "Input cable count" screen is a bit vague. In the end, I feel like I don't really know what I'm doing, almost as if it's too simple; I've managed to plug-n-play my way to success..

Excellent app. But if you are trying to learn your color codes and ribbons, you have to learn it on your own. The helps you double check your work and correct count's for your terminals drop down, ect.

What's new

Updated SDK for latest devices.

Added X=Y: Example fiber 36=55 (x=y) This will give your starting 1=20
Think of it as "Physical fiber 36's id equals 55"

Added Custom Start Fiber header range update as requested. When user creates a custom start fiber, there's now an option to update fiber ranges on the Ribbon/Tube headers (XX-XX). To enable this option go to Menu>App Settings> And switch on "Update Ranges(XX-XX)"

Also added Reverse lookup for custom start fibers.

Minor behavior adjustments.
