The SMU connects the Rx and Tx batteries to an alternative source of power (solar panel, wind turbine, isolated charger, ethanol fuel cell) when the Syscal is not acquiring. During the acquisition, the external power supply is remotley disconnected from the Tx and Rx batteries to avoid any leak of current that would perturbate the measurements.
