detectors. There are a number of pages, which can be selected using the
Current pages include:
A small version of the CCD summary page is permanently displayed.
The current state of any mechanism or light path is identified by

WHITE mechanism is ok although not being controlled [1mm] RED mechanism is in error [1mm] BLUE mechanism is moving [1mm] GREEN mechanism is successfully being controlled [1mm] YELLOW the current selected light-pathThe following ICL commands relate to the MIMIC (they are only normally needed when problems occur):
