Parameters

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

ParameterMand Type Default Constraints
ccdsetyesdatasetevents.ds 
Intermediate event list.
 
withbadpixsetnobooleanno 
Enable output of the BADPIXn tables to a specified dataset, rather than to the input dataset.
 
badpixsetnodatasetbadpix.ds 
Name of the dataset to be created as output, if enabled.
 
withadvisorynobooleanyes 
Enable inclusion of advisory (non-uplinked) bad pixels from the CCF.
 
badpixalgonochoicebadpixalgobadpixalgo $\mid$ embadpixalgo
User-defined bad pixels and column algorithm: this parameter specifies the algorithm to be used to determine bad pixels and columns.
 
embadpixalgonobooleanno 
Boolean parameter to enable the call the embadpixfind task to find bad pixels and columns.
 
withfoundhotnobooleanyes 
Enable telemetry analysis and inclusion of found hot pixels.
 
keepcoolnobooleanyes 
If set to "no", columns showing often larger CTI will be flagged (taken also from the CCF).
 
pixnoiselimitnointeger 0 - 4095
Lowest uncalibrated single-pixel energy to be considered while searching for hot pixels (Spectroscopy mode only).
 
colnoiselimitnointeger2500 - 4095
Lowest uncalibrated single-pixel energy to be considered while searching for hot columns.
 
pixsharpnessnoreal50-
Sharpness criterion for selecting hot pixels (Spectroscopy mode only).
 
colsharpnessnoreal80-
Sharpness criterion for selecting hot columns.
