Zero-crossing static bat recorder with built-in GPS.


If you require a light-weight, compact zero-crossing bat recorder, that is ideally suited to static and passive monitoring, as well as active and mobile transects, then the Anabat Express is for you. This device was released in 2014 and is a firm favourite among many ecological consultancies.

The Anabat Express has been designed to make life easier. It is easy-to-use and quick to deploy. The GPS Transect Mode allows you to track the detector’s path, with each bat call being automatically tagged with a GPS location. The integrated GPS recorder automatically updates sunset and sunrise times as well as recording the unit’s location. In addition, the Express can use an omnidirectional or directional microphone, which can be plugged directly into the front of the case, or to a 1.5m extension cable.

If you wish to customise recording schedules, you can upload a programme to the Express via an SD card (pre-programmed on a PC). Ultrasonic sound data can be stored on SDHC cards with up to 32GB of memory.

Key features:
  • Simple user interface with continuous or night mode
