The Engineering MIMIC

The Engineering MIMIC is a 4ms computer which is used to run a schematic display representing the status of ISIS and the A&G box. There are three diagrammatic pages, representing the A&G box; the ISIS slit are; and the rest of ISIS. Commands are available to switch between these display pages, to examine a particular mechanism in detail, and to move mechanisms in these and other subsystems by issuing network commands. These are detailed in a guide called ``The WHT Engineering MIMIC'', a pale green loosely bound document of which there should be at least one copy in the control room. To use the engineering mimic select MIMIC on the rotary switch labelled `` A''.
