cNODE® is a family of transponders for underwater acoustic positioning and data link and operates with both HiPAP®, HPR and cPAP® transceivers.

The Medium frequency (MF) cNODE® family consists of the following types, each with a separate product specification sheet:
•cNODE® Maxi and cNODE® Midi (Medium frequency, 4000 m)
•cNODE® Mini (Medium frequency, 4000 m)

cNODE® operates with either the HiPAP/HPR 400 channels and telemetry or with the new Cymbal acoustic protocol.

The cNODE® design is very modular and covers a large range of applications with its variety of different transducers, internal and external sensors, housing materials and other add-on functions.

Both new configurations and software can easily be downloaded from the Transponder Test and Configuration unit (TTC30) without opening the transponder. The floating collar design makes the launch/recovery operation safe and easy. Spare parts for cNODE® are based on the main modules.
