* The default read out mode is "binning". In the parentheses, the parameters of "non-binning" mode are shown.
** Currently, the default slit size is 50 um, due to instability of the x-ray beam.
*** In the 3 GeV operation mode, the wavelength range of the BL-17A is changed to be 1.0 A - 1.55 A. Please mind it carefully.
**** NE3A is a new beamline funded by a pharmaceutical company. The construction will be started in 2008.
