Cyber Sciences—Hazardous Materials Have Gone Bye-Bye (GPS)

[SatNews] Cyber Sciences has announced that their STR-100 Satellite Time Reference is RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) compliant and lead free.

Cyber Sciences, Inc. is dedicated to the same environmental concerns as are our customers and, with this latest release of the STR-100, all of our products are RoHS-compliant and lead free. The RoHS Directive restricts the use of six hazardous materials in the manufacture of various types of new electronic and electrical equipment including lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls, and polybrominated diphenyl ethers.

GPS Satellite Time Reference has ROHS-compliant design. Additional information via this direct link.
The STR-100 Satellite Time Reference uses Global Positioning System (GPS) technology to provide accurate date and time for power system devices, such as GE Multilin™ protective relays and meters, Square D PowerLogic® circuit monitors and power meters, and Eaton Power Xpert® Meters. The STR-100 accepts a time reference signal from a “smart antenna” or standard IRIG-B signal from a GPS receiver or other precision time source.

The STR-100 generates precision time signals using DCF77 or 1per10 time protocols, or (optionally) IRIG-B making it ideal for use in SER applications as a precision time reference for protective relays and power monitors that use these standards for time synchronization. Sequence of Events Recording systems help improve power system reliability and are widely used by electric utilities, industrial facilities, hospitals and data centers.
