Cyber Sciences Inc. announced that it is increasing the onboard memory of its CyTime sequence of events recorders SER-3200 and SER-2408 from 4 to 8 GB as standard. In addition to non-volatile storage of up to 8192 event records, the added flash memory is used to store instruction bulletins, equipment drawings, maintenance records, and other customer data—all accessible over an Ethernet network using a standard web browser. The company continues to offer an optional upgrade to 32 GB non-volatile memory for even greater flexibility. One CyTime SER serves as PTP grandmaster clock, and all other CyTime SERs (and other PTP devices) sync automatically. In addition, each CyTime SER can serve as a “time sync hub” for devices that do not yet support PTP. PTP (defined in IEEE Standard 1588) enables precise time synchronization (within 100 microseconds) over the same Ethernet network used for data communications. The breakthrough technology is the “hardware-assisted” time-stamping by 1588-compliant Ethernet interfaces in the SER devices.
