The Song Meter SM3 Recorder improves on the popular Song Meter SM2+ and provides a high quality platform for bioacoustic recording. The SM3 has a strong aluminium case which provides excellent weatherproofing and is able to 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 mean 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 immediately accessible and a one-press status button provides a quick way to check battery levels, temperature, SD card capacity and recording state. The SM3 has an auto-setup function which allows for immediate recording straight out of the box.
The SM3 has two recording channels and two weatherproof microphones are integrated into the unit. Meta-data, including gain and program details are embedded into the recordings making it easy to access all the information you require when analysing your files. Files are saved onto SD, SDHC or SDXC cards and the unit will accept a maximum of four cards simultaneously. The unit is powered using four internal D-cell batteries and it is also possible to power the unit using an external battery which requires an additional power cable.
The SM3 comes with two integrated acoustic microphones. An external microphone with 3m cable and 10m and 50m extension cables can be purchased separately. A hydrophone with 20m cable is also available.
