With its independent battery or input for external battery, it feeds other sensors that have a high power consumption or that need to be fed several seconds to stabilize the measurement before the measurement of the Data Logger.

The SSE Anticipator is meant to be installed between an Onset® HOBO® or other data loggers and an external sensor. Its purpose is to provide the sensor with switched power and a warm-up time.
The SSE learns the interval that the HOBO® uses to trigger data acquisition, and after the learning period it subsequently turns on the device power 5 seconds in anticipation.
The battery socket built into the anticipator takes a 3.6V 1.2Ah 1/2AA lithium battery, which operates the SSE electronics and can also supply 50mA current at 3.6V to operate the external sensor or device.
Device power can alternatively come from an external power source, up to 12Vdc.
The SSE Anticipator will work with the entire range of external channel HOBO recorders.
Be sure to observe the correct polarity when installing the battery. Polarity is marked on the black plastic battery holder. As shown the voltage input to the HOBO® is on the left, and the external device will attach to the middle set of three terminals. A jumper is in place on the rightmost set of three terminals, allowing the external device to be powered from the on-board 3.6V battery.
