HRC Command Sequences

Power Up HRC on CEA A - SCS #69


This command sequence sends high-level pulse commands to turn-on the HRC primary power bus and then the A-side +5V power supply. Once this supply is on the HRC is capable of receiving the serial digital commands necessary to activate the remainder of its power systems. Each of the HV power supplies is commanded off and to its minimum voltage step; this is a precautionary step as the activation of the +5V power should reset all of them to off. The commands to safe the motor controller are also issued before controling power is applied. After this the +15V, -15V, and +24V power supplies are turned on. After a 90 second delay for capacitors to charge, the anticoincidence shield PMT#2 is connected to CEA A (active) and PMT#1 to CEA B (inactive). Finally, as a default next-in-line telemetry timing is selected, the FIFO is reset and enabled.

This sequence should be used to bring the HRC instrument into a "stand-by" mode independent of which detector, HRC-I or HRC-S, is to be made active.


This command sequence is expected to be used after the proper instrument power configuration has been established by the command sequence "Power configure HRC to use CEA A" and the HRC primary power bus has been turned on (via the command EHRCPPON).

If the CTU is currently operating in format 1 only the first set of serial digital housekeeping values in a major frame will be valid. In order to be sure of having completely valid HRC serial digital telemetry this sequence should be followed by the appropriate sequence to set the telemetry format.
