The BATLOGGER M is a system for recording bat calls. It is a compact and versatile tool with a lot of features for scientists and all people interested in bat protection.
The ultrasonic sounds of the bats are recorded unaltered and in best audio quality (real-time, full spectrum). The BATLOGGER M can be used as bat detector as well. The integrated live monitoring (heterodyne, with automatic tuning) with speaker or headphones simplify work. A wide range of accessories make the BATLOGGER M universally.
In addition to the normal recording of bat calls on an SD card, further data and meta-information is collected and stored. The most important feature here is the built-in GPS receiver. Every recording is referenced by the coordinates of its position. This information is particularly valuable in elaborate setups with several recording devices, or in mobile transect recordings. Additionally, the temperature at the time of recording is also recorded.
The BATLOGGER M is an appealing solution for professional bat monitoring applications, e.g. studies for wind turbines, as well as for interested private users and biologists.
Highly sensitive recording system
All data relevant for the bat capture are recorded automatically and in a single device:
The recordings are stored on an SD card and can be displayed and evaluated on a PC. The ultrasonic microphone is one of the most sensitive on the market.
Advanced bat detector
Due to the sophisticated tools and automatics the work ot the bat observer is made much easier. The built-in live monitoring (mixer, resp. superheterodyne) tunes to the different call frequencies automatically. On detected bat activity the recording can be started automatically or manually and the most important informations is displayed directly and clearly.
Systematic bat monitoring
The enduring internal battery allows recordings over several nights to monitor a site in detail and to understand the local activity. For even longer autonomous observation and protection against weather influences the BATLOGGER M can be extended with the StrongBox.
On exploration walking tours especially the location recording is important. "Where was that again?" Often the place is an important hint to the species or the interesting observation. For transect studies, the walked way can also be recorded and displayed together with the bat call data.
Determining factor for mobile use is size and weight. The BATLOGGER M is very compact and fits comfortably in your hand.
Different observation situations require different recording settings. Scheduled recording, permanent recording, instant recording and different triggers (for call identification) can be set up.
Charts and statistics summarize the recorded data clearly and concisely and can be exported for further processing.
Open data formats
We believe the data belongs to the user. Therefore the recordings and metadata are stored in open formats such as WAV and XML. Thus you do not need special software to use the data and can, besides our software, also use other popular audio and bioacoustics programs.
Configure via PC
With BATPARS Editor Software it is easy and user-friendly to create and customize the BATLOGGER M settings with your computer (Windows and Mac).
So it is a breeze to adjust all parameters according to your wishes, even without searching the manual for the correct values.
