Primary Node (PN01C) at the Coastal Endurance Oregon Offshore Cabled Benthic Experiment Package (BEP) site provides power and communications to the Coastal Endurance OregonOffshore Cabled infrastructure including a low-voltage node, low-power jbox, shallow profiler, and deep profiler.
Primary Nodes are connected to the land-based shore station in Pacific City, Oregon via fiber-optic cables. These nodes convert high power from the shore station to a lower power and distribute that power and communication to junction boxes along the Juan de Fuca Plate through their science ports. Primary Nodes also receive data and communications from the junction boxes which they transmit back to shore.
This particular Primary Node, PN01C, provides power and bandwidth to the following:
