report on behalf of the Insight-HXMT team:
At 2020-05-19T11:20:23.73 (T0), Insight-HXMT/HE detected
GRB 200519A (trigger ID: HEB200519472) in a routine search of the data,
which also triggered Swift/BAT (GCN #27756).
The Insight-HXMT/HE light curve mainly consists of multiple
pulses with a duration (T90) of 8.97 s measured from T0+19.85 s.
The 1-ms peak rate, measured from T0+23.18 s, is 1206 cnts/sec.
The total counts from this burst is 4010 counts.
All measurements above are made with the CsI detectors operating in the
normal mode with the energy range of about 80-800 keV (deposited energy).
Only gamma-rays with energy greater than about 200 keV can penetrate
the spacecraft and leave signals in the CsI detectors installed inside
of the telescope.
Insight-HXMT is the first Chinese space X-ray telescope, which was
funded jointly by the China National Space Administration (CNSA) and
the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).
