256 Channel Pulse Height Analyzer Data


Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Offline Distribution (or Staging if Digital)

Time span: 1971-07-29 to 1971-08-05


This data set, which was submitted by the experimenter, contains reduced pulse height analyzer data from the 256-channel pulse height analyzer, alpha particle spectrometer in chronological order. The data are on a binary magnetic tape generated on an IBM 360 computer. There are a variable number of physical records with 20 logical records per physical record, and each logical record is 48 8-bit bytes in length. Each logical record conrresponds to 1 sec of spacecraft telemetry, i.e., to 1 of the good records in the unreduced telemetry tape. A 'good' unreduced telemetry record is one that has no more than 19 'bad' data flags set. Each record contains the time, 3 temperature measurements, data flags, 10 pulse height channel number and detector identification for each and several housekeeping parameters.
