4.11.3 Output files

EPIC images are produced with name PobsidPNS003IMAGE_bnnn.ds, where nnn is the subimage number and b is the energy band. The intermediate event files used to create each image, of name PobsidPNS003PIEVLInnn.ds are not removed from the disk. These could be used to extract a spectrum of a source although specific software to perform this task does not yet exist. EPIC exposure maps are produced with the names PobsidPNS003EXPMAPbnnn.ds for bands 6, 7 and 8 only. Finally, a set of files with names PobsidPNS003UNFDAT8nnn.ds are produced which can be used for diagnostics. These files contain images with no filtering, pattern or energy cut applied.
