Detection flags (7 columns)

SUM_FLAG (J)

The summary flag of the source is derived from the EPIC flag (EP_FLAG, see Sec. 3.1.2 h) and Sec. 3.2.6 ). It is 0 if none of the nine flags was set; it is set to 1 if at least one of the warning flags (flag 1, 2, 3, 9) was set but no possible-spurious-detection flag (flag 7, 8); it is set to 2 if at least one of the possible-spurious-detection flags (flag 7, 8) was set but not the manual flag (flag 11); it is set to 3 if the manual flag (flag 11) was set but no possible-spurious-detection flags (flag 7, 8); it is set to 4 if the manual flag (flag 11) as well as one of the possible-spurious-detection flags (flag 7, 8) is set. The meaning is thus:
0 = good,
1 = source parameters may be affected,
2 = possibly spurious,
3 = located in a area where spurious detection may occur,
4 = located in a area where spurious detection may occur and possibly spurious.
For details see Sec. 3.2.7.

EP_FLAG (12A) SAS task dpssflag


EPIC flag string made of the flags 1 - 12 (counted from left to right), where flag 10 is not used: it combines the flags in each camera ((PN_FLAG, M1_FLAG, M2_FLAG), that is, a flag is set in EP_FLAG if at least one of the camera-dependent flags is set. See Sec. 3.1.2 h) and Sec. 3.2.6  for a detailed description of the flags.

PN_FLAG (12A) SAS task dpssflag


PN flag string made of the flags 1 - 12 (counted from left to right) for the PN source detection. A flag is set to True according to the conditions summarized in Tab. 3.3a for the automatic flags, and Tab. 3.3b for the manual flags. In case where the camera was not used in the source detection a dash is given. In case a source was not detected by the PN the flags are all set to False (default). Flag 10 is not used.

M1_FLAG (12A) SAS task dpssflag


M1 flag string made of the flags 1 - 12 (counted from left to right) for the M1 source detection. A flag is set to True according to the conditions summarized in Tab. 3.3a for the automatic flags, and Tab. 3.3b for the manual flags. In case where the camera was not used in the source detection a dash is given. In case a source was not detected by the M1 the flags are all set to False (default). Flag 10 is not used.

M2_FLAG (12A) SAS task dpssflag


M2 flag string made of the flags 1 - 12 (counted from left to right) for the M2 source detection. A flag is set to True according to the conditions summarized in Tab. 3.3a for the automatic flags, and Tab. 3.3b for the manual flags. In case where the camera was not used in the source detection a dash is given. In case a source was not detected by the M2 the flags are all set to False (default). Flag 10 is not used.

TSERIES (L)

The flag is set to True if this source has a time series made in at least one exposure (cf. Sec. 3.1.4).

SPECTRA (L)

The flag is set to True if this source has a spectrum made in at least one exposure (cf. Sec. 3.1.4).
