 Definition of the HED Pulse Height Analyse event, sub-type 'a'

 Version 1.2

 Level(s): 2

 Format(s): f10,f30,f40,f50

 NOTE: The on-board identification bits (sbs[4] bits b0-b3) and the S2H2X 
       warning flag (sbs[5] b7) are available only from OSS-2.50 onwards 
       (since 3 July 2001).

       The S2H2X warning is set by the SClev1to2-program. The flag is set if 
       the particle has been subject to on-board trajectory check based on 
       the estimated S1X-coordinate from the affected S1X-half (S1H2X). The 
       flag is not set for particles that have been written to the PHA table 
       without coordinate calculation (most of the 'heavy'-particles) or which 
       have entered through the non-affected half (S1H1X).

 NOTE: The names of the H/W status bits in sbs[0:4] follow the convention in 
       "E-ELE-FM-1801A A Technical Specification of ERNE gate Array"

 NOTE: Except for the MAINT-mode the following H/W status bits are not packed 
       in the PHA telemetry and are thus always 0:
          sbs[1]: AC1HIT and AC2HIT
          sbs[3]: all the bits
       In addition, while all the PR-bits are included in the ON-mode telemetry
       the EL- and PR2-bits are in practice always 0, as both the current and 
       previous Onboard software algorithms don't include either electrons nor
       penetrating particles on to the PHA record.
