The BAR-LT Bioacoustic Recorder is a professional 2 channel recorder housed in a rugged, waterproof, camouflaged enclosure designed for long term field deployment. It records directly onto SD cards and has a maximum capacity of 4 SD cards, providing up to 2TB of storage. The built-in GPS provides accurate time synchronisation and location information, whilst also GEO-stamping your recordings. Recording schedules specific to your project can be created using the scheduler software such as sunrise / sunset based recordings, day specific recording times and starting on a specific date. The high sensitivity, low noise omnidirectional microphones have a 20dB class A pre-amp and an internal memory chip that allows the BAR-LT to log the serial number and manufacture date for each recording automatically, making sure you can keep track of your recordings.
The recorder can be powered by 1 to 6 rechargeable lithium batteries (not included), providing between 100 and 600 hours of recording time. It can also be powered using a 6V or 12V external power supply and the low-power shut-off will protect your external batteries. The BAR-LT comes with a mounting plate and strap so it can be easily deployed on a tree or post.
Please note that for optimal performance only Frontier Labs lithium-ion batteries (3400mAh) should be used with the Bioacoustic Audio Recorder. These batteries can be purchased separately and are not included with the recorder.
The recorder is available in two configurations:
Standard - one channel underneath and a second channel on one side for connecting an extension cable to a second microphone or hydrophone
Left / Right - two channel configuration with left and right stereo separation
