Variable Stars South (VSS) has three active projects using electronic detectors to study eclipsing binaries, especially EAs. In addition to supplying JD observational data to the AAVSO International Database, VSS maintains a database of observed times of minima (ToM) and linear light elements derived from the ToMs. This database, located on the VSS website, is updated monthly. In addition, the same page links to the areas for the three projects which maintain extensive observational and analytic data.
