The detector

Pickup in the form of horizontal bands can been seen in NOTCam images. An attempt to identify and remove the source of interference was unsuccessful. This noise can also be seen in images taken in Copenhagen. The conclusion is that the noise originates inside the controller. The only possible solution seems to be to remove the power supply unit completely from the array controller.
