Scan time of each spectrum: 120 seconds
Accumulation time of a single spectrum point: 0.4 - 0.6 - 0.8 seconds
(The accumulation time of a single spectrum point and the resulting number of measurement points in a spectrum for each scan is determined automatically using the maximum level of the previous spectrum).

Photometry

Energy interval: 2-4 and 4-8 keV
Detector apertures: 0.3 and 0.01 cm2
Duration of single measurement: 2 seconds for low solar activity
  0.125 econds during solar flare

Structure and localization of an X-Ray source

Energy interval: 2-4 and 4-8 keV
Spatial resolution (FWHM): 10 arc seconds
