About this product

The Song Meter SM3BAT Recorder improves on the popular Song Meter SM2BAT+ and provides a high quality platform for monitoring bat populations. It is now supplied with the improved SMM-U1 microphone which has a metal housing to improve grounding.

Robust and weatherproof case
The SM3BAT has a strong aluminium case which provides excellent weatherproofing and will withstand the toughest conditions. A built-in mounting panel makes it easy to deploy and the new easy-access battery tray and SD card hatch means that changing batteries and cards in the field is much quicker and does not require any tools. The user interface consists of an LCD screen and button membrane which are both easily visible and a one-press status button provides a quick way to check battery levels, temperature, SD card capacity, microphone level and recording state. The SM3 will automatically detect the type of microphone that is attached to the unit and has an auto-setup function which allows for immediate recording straight out of the box.

Record on two channels
The SM3BAT has two recording channels which will record in full spectrum. This means that it is possible to record in mono at 384kHz or in stereo at 256kHz. When recording in stereo it is possible to record two channels of zero-crossing at the same time. Meta data, including gain, microphone type and program details, are embedded into the recordings, making it easy to access all the information you require when analysing your files. 

Improved power usage
The unit is powered using four internal D-cell batteries. The battery life can be improved by the use of "nap mode" which puts the recorder into a low power state between triggers and increases the battery life by up to 50%. It is also possible to power the unit using an external battery. Bat calls and data are saved onto SD, SDHC or SDXC cards and the unit will accept a maximum of four cards simultaneously.  

Bundles available
The SM3BAT comes with one SMM-U1 ultrasonic microphone on a 3m cable as standard. It is also available as a Starter Kit which contains the SM3BAT and microphone, 1 x 32 GB Class 4 Verbatim SDHC card and 4 x D-cell batteries or as a Complete Kit which contains the SM3BAT and microphone, 4 x 32 GB Class 4 Verbatim SDHC cards and 4 x D-cell batteries.

User manual available here.

The SM3BAT comes with a three year warranty.
