The CYCLE 16 PIMMS Effective Area files have been added to the CalDB in version 4.6.0. These files have no use whatever to CIAO users, and are only read by the DS10.2 operating system in populating the online PIMMS effective area viewer and count rate calculator.

The PIMMS Cycle 16 effective areas are plotted at Cycle 16 PIMMS Effective Areas, and background information is available at this link. Additionally, see the CXC PIMMS Effective Area Viewer and the PIMMS Count Rate Calculator for the Cycle 16 updates.
