HCAL Orbit Gap Calibration

The AMC13 implements several features to facilitate triggers for calibration purposes during the LHC "Orbit Gap" during which no normal L1A should occur. The details of this have to a certain extent been lost in time.

See 2009 CMS Note by Jeremy et al about this. Here is a table of TTC command used by HCAL extracted from the document.
