Sequence of events recorder provides reporting for 32 channels
Cyber Sciences device can assist with cyber event forensics or analysis after process incidents and upsets.
The CyTime model SER-3200 sequence of events recorder from Cyber Sciences provides precision time-stamped event reporting associated with input state changes for 32 high-speed digital channels. Time synchronization is achieved via unmodulated IRIG-B input from a GPS receiver or via RS-485 signal from another SER-3200 serving as time sync master. Data is available over an Ethernet network using a standard web browser or via application software using Modbus TCP/IP.
The SER-3200 is a key component to ensure power system reliability in power monitoring and control systems in critical power facilities such as hospitals and data centers. It is also an essential part SCADA systems in continuous processes such as refineries, water treatment plants, and electrical distribution networks.
Cyber Sciences, Inc. (CSI) supplies specialty products for monitoring and control of electrical distribution systems for electric utilities, industrial, institutional, and commercial facilities. Key applications include sequence of events recording (SER) and utility smart grid systems, helping customers ensure the reliability, safety and efficiency of their electrical power systems.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
