4.2 The EPIC pipeline products

The Pipeline processing produces a number of useful products which allow a first look at the data. The page INDEX.HTM is the main page which gives a summary of the observation and provides links to the instrument observation summary pages, of the form:

As well as these summary files, links to two other summary files are provided:

PooooooooooOBX000PPSSUM0000.HTM: the PPS processing summary file, and
PooooooooooCAX000XCORRE0000.HTM: the EPIC field of view cross-correlation results

With each group of the pipeline products (Table 4) there is an HTML (.HTM extension) file which lists the associated data files and gives a short description of them.

The HTML file names are of the following format:

The data file names are of the form:

Table 4 lists the Group and File ID for the Pipeline processing data files relevant for EPIC.
