Dear XMMHelp,

I would like to create an extended arf spectrum of a PWN but I am encountering a
problem that I have not seen before, this error is also produced by the ARF and
RMF generators.

Thanks,
Eric

Subject: Re: Error creating a spectrum: ** backscale::arfgen: warning (Mismatch), EMOS1/FWC is not a known instrument/filetype combination (PR#81957)
Date: Mon Jul 10 12:37:00 2017

Dear Dr. Gotthelf,

The message 

** backscale::arfgen: warning (Mismatch), EMOS1/FWC is not a known
instrument/filetype combination 

is  due to the calibration files EPN,EMOS[12]_FWC_0001.CCF 
that were released in January 2017.


I could not check in a Mac system, but this same message is  
produced in Linux, but only with SASv15, not with SASv16.
 
Despite the warning, the task runs (in SASv15) until the end, and
the output is correct.

A possible workaround would be to edit the the ccf.cif file and delete manually
the three entries corresponding to EPN_FWC_0001.CCF, EMOS1_FWC_0001.CCF and
EMOS2_FWC_0001.CCF.


Could you please try it and let me know if you still have problems?



Regards,

Rosario Gonzalez-Riestra
