Instrument adapters connect 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 connect groups of instruments and sensors to the Ocean Networks Canada observatories. Some examples of adapters include the Vertical Profiling System (VPS), Tempo-Mini, and the Buoy Profiling System (BPS).
