arc command

This page is part of the ING manual INS-DAS-26 Operations manual for UltraDAS.


Arc drives the camera in the same ways as the run command (q.v.) but marks the observation's file as a arc which improves the handling of the data. Multarc does a sequence of arc observations.


   arc [<camera>] <time> ["<title>"]
   multarc [<camera>] <n-obs> <time> ["<title>"]
where time is the exposure time for one cycle in seconds and n-obs is the number of cycles in multarc. The title-string must be enclosed in double quotes. The default title is "Arc".
