IRIM Related Commands

dsetup - The default microcode used by IRIM dsetup is NicmMed0101 . (see user command section for a complete explanation of dsetup.)

fwl - the command used to control the IRIM filter wheel. The filter wheel has the following filters: dark, fw1, 2.12, fw2, 2.16, fw3, j, fw4, 2.22, fw5, 2.36, fw6, h, fw7, k, fw8.

setbias value - set the detector bias to a given voltage. value is the voltage in volts to which the detector bias should be set. The range of value is 0 to 1.0 volts. The default value is .4 volts.

setscb onbitlist offbitlist - sets the static control bit register in the instrument controller. onbitlist is a list of one or more bits to be turned on. offbitlist is a list of one or more bits to be turned off. The command is used to control the SCB register in the IRIM instrument. It is used to command certain bits from the TCL to control data transfers to the DSP box. The valid values are: all, none, selmotor0data, enblmotorrst, selcicoutput, seledodac, selododac, selhkhiaddr, selhkdata, selhkaddr, seldbus, enbldetbias, selardata, sellofilt, selvoffdac, selvdtdac, databus

This command is only needed when developing new code to take data with IRIM. DO NOT USE UNLESS AUTHORIZED TO DO SO.

setvoff value - set the voff to a given value. value is the voltage in volts to which the VOff voltage should be set. The range of value is 0 to 5.0 volts. The default value is 4.12 volts.
