C.31.3.1 Range Modulator Type

Defined Terms for Range Modulator Type (300A,0348) are as follows:

FIXED = fixed modulation width and weights using ridge filter or constant speed wheel with constant beam current

WHL_FIXEDWEIGHTS = selected wheel/track (Range Modulator ID) is spinning at constant speed. Modulation width is adjusted by switching constant beam current on and off at wheel steps indicated by Range Modulator Interrupt Values

WHL_MODWEIGHTS = selected wheel/track (Range Modulator ID) is spinning at constant speed. Weight per wheel step is adjusted by modulating beam current according to selected Beam Current Modulation ID (300A,034C).
