MIMI Plot Descriptions
The top plot displays a thick colored bar if the
INCA instrument is in ion mode (where the collimator voltage is less than a threshold value). If the voltage on the collimator is
outside the normal expected value, a thin bar is plotted.
The rest of the lines in the data validity plot display the L1a data validity
measurements. For most of the data types
this consists of if the data is present. For the auxiliary data the line indicates that the sector start of time
data was present. The auxiliary start of sector time is used in the timing calculation for all the data types except for housekeeping.
Analog Converted Temps:
The analog converted temperature plot displays the more important instrument temperatures in degrees Centigrade and valid and invalid command counts on linear scale line plots.
Analog Converted Currents:
The analog converted currents plot displays the more important currents in milliamps respectively on linear scale line plots.
Analog Converted Volts:
The analog converted voltages plot displays the more important voltages in volts on linear scale line plots.
INCA Out of Calibration Time Ranges
The INCA out of calibration files are comma delimited files, containing the times that the INCA images were
considered out of calibration. The time ranges in the files have been further divided into periods to indicate whether the period was a planned
(1) or unplanned (2) out of calibration event but all of these time periods should be considered to be
out of calibration.
INCA Ion/Neutral Mode Time Ranges
The INCA Ion and Neutral Mode files are comma delimited files, containing either ion or neutral mode start and
stop times and mode value. The Ion and Neutral modes are determined by the voltage on the INCA High start supply.
MIMI Stare/Spin Mode Time Ranges
The MIMI stare/spin mode files are comma delimited files, containing either spin or stare mode start and
stop times and mode value. The spin and stare modes are determined by the MIMI DPU using the current spacecraft
spin rate about the spacecraft Z axis. Spin and stare mode does affect how INCA images are collected.
Data Gap Lists
The data gaps files are comma delimitated files, containing the science data gaps start and stop time in
UTC (yyyy-doyThh:mm:ss) and total gap time.
