Source parameters

Col. 100: EP_FLUX (E) [erg/cm2/s]

The mean total band flux (0.2-12keV) of the detections in all cameras (Cols. 105, 107, and 103), weighted by the errors, in erg/cm2/s. A camera detection is only included in the calculation of the mean if the flags 1, 5, and 6 are all set False for this camera (see Sec. 3.3.1). This can lead to the situation where EP_FLUX is set NULL for a valid source because none of the camera detections satisfy the above criteria. It is to be treated as an upper limit if the source was not detected but observed with any one camera (for the observed area of each camera see the products exposure maps, see Appendix A.1)
