Appendix 2. User's Guide to LAN360


A2.2 Available Channels


Tables A2-1 and A2-2 show the electron and ion channels and the WART channels available to be plotted with LAN360, and the energy ranges that they cover.


Table A2-1 Available LAN channels for LAN360

Table A2-1


On the time series plot, electrons are plotted as "equivalent LEFS60" flux; protons are plotted as "equivalent LEMS120" flux.


* These energy range values from IDF.DAT version 1.13.
• For these proton channels, set foilfact =0.0, or the E1-4 channel values will be used.


Table A2-2 Available WART channels (XY plane only)


Table A2-2 

* These energy range values from IDF.DAT version 1.13.
a Plots including these channels are not yet implemented.


Table A2-3 shows (in a format similar to that of the LAN360 output) the detectors and sectors that are used in each panel. LEMS detector channels are in the left column, LEFS to the right. For the WART plots, the sectors are the same as the LEFS60 in the XY plane.
