Enable or disable slaving of TAURUS to the CCD-=IPCS.

Format: TSLAVE <state>

Examples : TSLAVE ON

Comments: TAURUS must be slaved to the CCD--IPCS for rapid scanning of the etalon to take place. This command is not relevant to observations with a CCD detector. Slaving can only be enabled if the CS100 has been switched to the etalon (command ETALON_VOLTAGE), external control has been enabled (command CS100_EXT) and the servo loop closed (command CS100_CLOSE). Do not disable slaving whilst an IPCS exposure is in progress; if you wish to finish an exposure prematurely first abort or finish the exposure, wait for the etalon to stop scanning, and then type TSLAVE OFF.
