Instrument adapters are instruments that host a variety of sensors and instruments. Typically, these devices do not collect any data and our digital infrastructure system does not communicate with them. The main purpose of adapters is to function as an adapter and connect groups of instruments and sensors to the Ocean Networks Canada observatories. Some examples include the VPS (Vertical Profiling System), Tempo-Mini, and the BPS (Buoy Profiling System).
