FOA LossCalc estimates the optical loss of a fiber optic link. This will save time for the installer of a fiber optic link needing to know whether test results are reasonable and/or make a "pass/fail" determination. It can also help the designer of a link to determine if communications equipment will operate over this link.
By choosing the type of link (singlemode or multimode) and specifying the length of the fiber and numbers of connections and splices, it will calculate the end to end loss of the link. The app has default specifications for singlemode and multimode links or the user may create custom setups with specifications appropriate for any application.
- Updated for iOS 9 compatibility.

Great app, but I usually shoot fibers in kilofeet & then use the app to check my loss. Would love to see kft & miles added to the options. Still worth the price, though. ;)
Custom edit function is great!
This is great for those who don't do math.
I like this app because of the "Typ" (Typical) and Custom edit functionality. Also, go advanced, by understanding your connector type limits.
This app is great overall for calculating budgets on the fly. It would be nice to be able to change from Km to feet in the set-up menu though....
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
