2 IFs , any advantage

Postby Kingsley » Tue Mar 31, 2015 7:11 pm

Hi just a quick question,
If you observed with the same zom configuration in both IFs, other that redunacy, i.e. picking the better one or portions when blocks go offline, is there any benefit that can be gained from when both IFs were woking fine?

No, the data in the two IFs should be identical, save for some scaling and digital noise, which won't average away over more than a single cycle.
