Shutter Control

Even the shutter can be controlled from within SICS. This is safe because the shutter will not open if the door to the instrument is open. In Local Beam Control (LBC) speak this status is named "Enclosure is broken". Be careful anyway because some idiots may climb the fence..... The following SICS commands control the shutter:

The command shutter without arguments returns the status of the shutter. This can be one of open, closed, Enclosure is broken.
shutter open
opens the shutter when possible.
shutter close
closes the shutter.
