Binary Acoustic Technology AR180-EXT

Product Description

The AR180-EXT is a professional quality ultrasonic receiver that is designed for ultrasonic recording and acoustic analysis. It employs a directional, wide bandwidth ultrasonic element along with ultrasonic to digital conversion technology to produce a high quality, digitally sampled, acoustic stream that is injected directly into a laptop computer or field recorder to perform ultrasonic monitoring, and analysis.

The AR180-EXT system is specifically designed for bat monitoring applications which require that the detector is mounted quite a distance away from the recording device. The system consists of an ultrasonic microphone element and a ultrasonic digitizer unit. The two units are separable up to 250 feet and are connected using industry standard CAT-5e or CAT-6 cable.

The AR180-EXT is shipped with a 20 foot cable.  Longer cables can also be supplied, but with an additional charge

 Product Highlights

  • Extendable microphone element
  • Direct digital conversion technology
  • 1KHz to 180 KHz operating range
  • High sensitivity
  • High speed USB 2.0 interface
  • Durable aluminum enclosure
  • 1/4-20 camera mount
  • Price includes a 20 foot Cable

AR180-EXT is better at:

  • Applications where a long cable run is necessary between the microphone element and the actual recorder or computer.
  • Active recording/viewing live full spectrum activity, and then selectively recording only the bat pass of interest.
  • Educational demos; people are entranced by the "campfire effect" of watching bat activity go by live.
  • Passive monitoring; the AR180EXT is housed in a robust weatherproof housing more appropriate for inclement weather.
  • Orient this microphone horizontally to minimize moisture into the microphone element. Raise this microphone as far as possible from all obstructions (~12'+ above ground) and extend it into the airspce you intend to monitor.
  • Compatible with SonoBatLIVE and Bat Recorder Android app
  • Compatible with Myotisoft Transect
  • Compatible with SonoBat Bat Call Analysis software

AR180-EXT Specifications:

  • Frequency Range : 1 to 180 KHz
  • Dynamic Range : > 84 dB (Full BW) and > 90 dB (Audio BW)
  • Range Limits (SPL +/- 3 dB) : Max : 90 dB, Min : 0 dB (Full) / -6 dB (audio)
  • Maximum Separation : 250 feet using CAT 6 cable
  • High speed USB 2.0 interface with recorders
  • Durable aluminum enclosure
  • Weather Tolerant
  • 1/4-20 standard camera mount

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask BCM a Question
  • I’m leaning towards the AR180EXT, as it seems the most robust option and we want this to work in the long-term. All of the others seem a little risky, and we are installing this in a remote location in Northern Ontario, where conditions are harsh! I am thinking we’ll probably need to uninstall it in the winter time. Am I right in thinking the BAT microphones could be refurbished (at some expense lower than complete replacement)?

    I took apart a BAT mic once by accident and it’s very simple. The golden mic element up front is what is exposed to the weather and it is very easy to replace. It’s just 2 wires and it’s disconnected if I recall.   Get the mic up high and angle it horizontal or down a touch, use conservative trigger settings so as to avoid the trash and the data burden will be manageable. I put mine in a tube recessed just a little bit. The AR125/150 is strongly directional by default so you can get away with putting an extra enclosure around it a little more than other mics.    All my wires are totally encased in pvc conduit on that one. I still worry about wasps building nests in the mic enclosure you might consider filling any gaps with something so there is no space for insects to make homes.
