SER is an abbreviation for Sequence of Event Recorder

A SER is an intelligent standalone microprocessor based system, which monitors external inputs and records the time and sequence of the changes. Sequence of events recorders usually have an external time source such as a GPS Radio clock. When wired inputs change state the time and state of each change is recorded.

SERs enable rapid root-cause analysis after multiple events have occurred due to the secure recording of events in their sequence of occurrence. SERs are therefore utilized a diagnostic tool to minimize plant downtime. SERs are often interfaced with a SCADA system, Distributed control system (DCS),or Programmable logic controller (PLC).

SER reports are used by electrical engineers to analyze large and small electrical system blackouts. After the Northeast Blackout of 2003,the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) specified that electrical system data should be time-tagged to the nearest millisecond.

In 1984 The Tetragenics Company, a subsidiary of the Montana Power Company, introduced the first [Remote terminal unit]](RTU) that time-tagged events to the nearest millisecond, and now there are also other RTUs with this capability. Digital protective relays and some PLCs now also include time-tagging to the nearest millisecond; SCADA systems that incorporate these devices provide SER functions without a dedicated SER device.
