rgssources (rgssources-6.3) [xmmsas_20211130_0941-20.0.0]

Instrument name.

If the file name is in either the PPS or the rgsproc formats, then rgssources is able to deduce the instrument name from the file name. The PPS format is PooooooooooiiteeeSRCLI_0000.FIT; the rgsproc format is rrrrooooooooooiiteee00_sources.ds. In these templates, rrrr is the rev number, oooooooooo is the observation identifier, ii the instrument (either R1 or R2), eee the exposure number and t the exposure type (either S or U)). However forcing rgssources to do this is not the preferred option, which is rather to give the instrument name directly via the parameter instexpid.
