In the context of the Ocean Networks Canada observatories, nodes are underwater structures that interface between the backbone fibre-optic cable and extension cables to the various platforms. Underwater mateable interfaces allow for underwater maintenance that requires extension cables to be connected or disconnected. These nodes, developed by Maripro for NEPTUNE and OceanWorks for VENUS, incorporate underwater power technology that converts DC line voltage (400V and 1200V for the VENUS observatory, 10 kV for the NEPTUNE observatory) to 400 V DC power.
