Contexts:Network socket, serial console, stage2 only
Function:Request integration time applicable to next "expose" command
Required Parameters:An integer number of milliseconds >= 1


This command sets a "sticky" parameter. It doesn't do anything to the detector, but it sets the integration time for the next expose command. It only needs to be sent to the controller upon initialization, though there is no harm sending it before every exposure.

etime 30000

The above example requests a 30 second integration period. See also etype and expose.


The script level etime command takes a floating point value in seconds, while the controller socket level requires integer milliseconds.

Due to timeouts in the pixel server code, integration times greater than the network timeout (typically 45 seconds) may result in the server returning a timeout.
