HRC Higher-Level Sequences

HRCOBS Configuration


This sequence captures the logic that should be followed by the Command Generation function within the OCC Off-line System to configure the HRC for observations (i.e.the HRCOBS statement within the Detailed Operations Time-line would be expanded via this sequence). The specific settings requested for an observation are passed into the HRCOBS statement by the HRC_MODE value of the Observation Request (OR).

Notice that since we expect to use default settings for most observations, this higher-level procedure will usually only send commands to the HRC if there is a detector change (HRC-I to -S or HRC-S to -I).


An HRC detector, either HRC-I or HRC-S, is expected to be operational as a prerequisite to scheduling an HRCOBS statement. Thus, this higher level sequence does not contain steps to go from the "Off" state.

Revision 1.5 1999/04/21 13:31:57 juda

marked as Approved

Revision 1.4 1999/03/03 21:34:33 juda

changed links for files with name changes

Revision 1.3 1998/11/18 17:16:31 juda

moved "MCP HV Off" and "Terminate SCS#91" out of detector specific sections

Revision 1.2 1998/10/15 20:44:30 juda

replaced calls to pages for switch HRC-I to HRC-S and HRC-S to HRC-I with the necessary explicit line. This removes the MCP HV ramp-up activation and allows SCS #91 to do the ramp-up
