The SMX-U1 omnidirectional ultrasonic microphone, designed for use with the SM2BAT+, provides you with excellent performance. It uses the same proprietary technology developed for the Song Meter SM3BAT and SMZC microphones, the SMM-U1.
You can either connect the microphone directly to the SM2BAT+ unit or use it in combination with extension cables, allowing you to position the mic up to 100 m away from the recorder.
- Rated at 8kHz to 192 kHz, it provides a flatter frequency response
- Provides higher sensitivity at frequencies above 60kHz, capturing all necessary details in a bat call
- Low self-noise
- Built-in gain: requires a lower gain on the SM2BAT and SM2BAT+ than the older SMX-US or SMX-UT mics
- Can be purchased with 1, 3, 10, and 50 m cables
If you have an SM2BAT we recommend that you service it every year to keep it in top operational condition. We also can repair these units.
Type: Knowles FG element
In the field: set 12dB of gain on the SM2BAT or SM2BAT+ for normal recording conditions or 0dB if you are close to the bats to avoid clipping. Alter rows 6 to 9 of the jumper switches. Set to 6 (on), 7 (off), 8 (off), 9 (on) for 12dB gain or set to 6 (on), 7 (off), 8 (on) 9 (off) for 0dB gain.

Q. Can I Use An SMM-U1 Or SMX-U1 Microphone To Record Non-Ultrasonic Signals?
A. SMM-U1 and SMX-U1 have built-in high-pass filters at 8 kHz to cut down on wind noise and other sources of low-frequency rumble. This means that any sound at frequencies lower than 8 kHz will be significantly reduced in volume or completely absent.
