Parameters

This section documents the parameters recognized by this task (if any).

ParameterMand Type Default Constraints
evfileyesstring Name of existing event file
a specifier which must point to a table of events in a data set.
 
timebinwidthnoreal10.0Time bin width
the width of time bins to use when calculating the correction factors. It is in units of seconds.
 
piminnoint100Minimum PI channel to use
the minimum PI channel to use from the data when calculating the count rate. This may be changed to avoid low-energy noise.
 
pimaxnoint12000Maximum PI channel to use
the maximum PI channel to use from the data when calculating the count rate. This may be changed to avoid high-energy noise.
 
withrandomisationnobooleantrueWhether to use randomisation
Because of the quantised nature of the PI channels it is possible when multiplying by a constant to get an output PI channel which is not filled by any of the input channels. To avoid this the PI channels are internally set to be +/- 0.5 of their initial value before applying the constant. Set withrandomisation to false to avoid this behaviour.
