The Anabat Scout Bat Detector from Titley Scientific is a return to basics but with a modern slant for today's professional ecologist.

In the field…
It's a simple, robust handheld unit with full spectrum recording and a heterodyne output function so you can hear the bats via the speaker or headphones.

A basic display for field use means fewer distractions while out and about. For example, call frequency is displayed, rather than complex spectrogram. But the Anabat Scout isn't collecting just the basics. It's a full spectrum bat detector, storing information onto its SD card for review back at base, whether that's for viewing waveforms, listening to sonograms or tracking the ecologist's movements.

Powered by …
Two AA batteries (rather than a rechargeable unit). If a battery goes flat it's a simple swap out instead of having to return to base (or the car) for a recharge. Either disposable or rechargeable batteries will do (although we recommend the latter).

Other features:
There's a bat counter feature for the ecologist to hit the in or out button each time a bat enters or exits the roost. Meanwhile, the built-in GPS records the ecologist's location during the session.

To sum up…
The Anabat Scout collects the data you’d expect, but with none of the distractions while out in the field.

• Easy to use minimalist display
• Full Spectrum Recording
• Heterodyne, Auto-Heterodyne & Frequency Division Audio
• In & Out Bat Counter with Automatic Time Sampling
• Built-in GPS for transects
• Uses 2x AA Batteries for a simple swap out, rather than a back-to-base trip for recharge

Step 1 - Your Anabat Scout is easily updated using an SD card. Simply download the update file using this link and copy it to the root directy on an SD card. Make sure the file is named scout.adx. You can use the same SD card to update multiple Scouts.

Step 2 - Insert the SD card and fresh batteries into your Scout then power it on. After a short time a message will appear: "Firmware update 1.0 available. Would you like to update now?". Press the "Yes" key (right hand soft key) to start the update. Do not remove the batteries or power off the detector while the update is being installed. Two squares will scroll across the display while the update is being installed and then the detector will restart.

The update is now complete, happy batting! If you encounter any difficulties with this process please don’t hesitate to contact for assistance.
