Format: ARC <channel> <time> ["

Channel: The name of the data-acquisition channel to be used.

Time: The exposure time in seconds.

Title: A title for the observation.

Comments: As for the RUN command, except that the observation type is set in the headers as ARC. This command does not control arc lamps.
