The Engineering MIMIC can be used to display the status of ISIS and the A&G box in rather more detail than is provided by the Vax MIMIC. Command can also be issued to move mechanisms in and device which is on the network, most commonly ISIS and the A&G box. These commands consist of a Mnemonic which identifies the device to be operated on, a number which identifies what operation is to be carried out on the mechanism (move, initialise, status request or reprogram), and if appropriate (i.e. in the case of moving a mechanism) a demanded position in parentheses. Details of these commands, and how to issue them from the Engineering MIMIC terminal, are given in ``The Engineering Mimic'', a loosely bound document with a pale green cover, which is usually to be found near the engineering MIMIC terminal.
