The SM4BAT is the next-generation bat detector/recorder. It's smaller, lighter and easier to use than the SM3BAT.
Choose the SM3BAT if:
- You need to record birds or other wildlife on a second channel.
- You need a schedule that does different things on different days.
- You want to make sub-minute recordings.
A breakthrough in bat bioacoustics recording technology.
“This is not just an improved version of their (extremely successful) SM2BAT+... The changes are simply amazing!” – Al Milano, Bat Detector Blogspot
The 3rd generation Song Meter SM3BAT is a new benchmark for bat bioacoustics recorders. From innovative recording features, massive data storage capacity and a significant improvement in deployment time over the SM2BAT+, the new SM3BAT makes bat echolocation data capture, easier and more cost effective.
Double your effective field coverage.
The SM3BAT is the only recorder that can simultaneously record in full spectrum at 256 kHz on two channels AND zero crossing on the same channels. It's like having two full spectrum and two zero crossing recorders in one box.
Should you need a higher sampling rate, the SM3BAT can sample in full spectrum up to 384 kHz on one channel. If you want more options for zero crossing files, the recorder has an improved zero crossing auto level and division ratios of 4, 8, 12 or 16.
Record up to 180 hours in full spectrum.
Time is money and the SM3BAT was designed to reduce your cost of ownership. The SM3BAT has new power circuitry that increases deployment time by 50% over the SM2BAT+. In short, the SM3BAT can record up to 180 hours of echolocation data in full spectrum and up to 700 hours in zero crossing on one channel. That means longer deployments and fewer trips into the field. (Note: the SM3BAT owner's manual has a detailed listing of battery life per battery type and recording format.)
Choose a schedule or create your own.
The SM3BAT comes with out-of-the box recording programs; including daytime, night time, and continuous recording schedules with automatic configuration. Just pick your desired schedule and press the Start button to begin making recordings immediately. Or, you can create customized, sophisticated schedules and settings to suit your exact needs.
Capture more than a terabyte of echolocation data.
The SM3BAT is compatible with SDHC and SDXC cards. There are four weatherproof SD card slots and with each card capable of storing 256 gigabytes of echolocation data. Combined with the SMBAT's adaptive triggering and compression, storage capacity exceeds a terabyte. That means more echolocation data containing vast amounts of echolocation detail.
Record in high fidelity using the new ultrasonic and acoustic microphones.
The new, weather resistant SMM-U1 ultrasonic microphone features high quality FG microphone elements that have improved signal to noise ratios and flatter frequency response over our previous microphones. Gain is applied at the microphone to increase signals in the cables (up to 100 meters) therefore reducing electrical noise interference. The result is higher quality recordings, even when the cables are run along side other cables on metrology towers or in wind turbines.
Expand the use of the SM3BAT.
The SM3BAT is the only bat recorder that allows you to simultaneously record any combination of bats, birds, frogs and marine life. The new SM3-H1 hydrophone allows you to record above and below the surface. So if your field assignment includes monitoring an assortment of wildlife, the SM3BAT saves you money with its flexible and easily configurable design.
Feel confident knowing you're backed by the longest warranty available.
The Song Meter SM3BAT was designed for use in extreme weather conditions – from caves, jungles, deserts to parts in between. The recorder has been subjected to environmental shock, drop testing, static discharge and extreme water incursion. Al Milano of Bat Detector Blogspot said, "The Song Meter SM3BAT is by far the most solidly built bat recorder I've ever seen."
We're so confident that the SM3BAT can endure the most extreme environmental conditions, we back it with a 3 year warranty. That means you can focus on research, not equipment.
Save countless hours of analysis time using Kaleidoscope Pro bat auto-ID analysis software.
It's one matter to capture hundreds of hours of echolocation data but it's a another matter to quickly and accurately sort and analyze the data. Kaleidoscope Pro software can automate and speed up your analysis work. The software allows you to view and analyze your recordings and automatically identify recorded species.
