Elekon BATSCANNER

Product Description

The BATSCANNER is an easy to use bat detector. It converts the ultrasonic bat calls into an audible frequency with the "mixer“ principle (heterodyne). What makes the BATSCANNER unique is that the mixing frequency is adjusted and displayed automatically for the detected bat species. Thus, the different bat species can be heard without manual tuning and its main frequency can be seen easily.

Detect bat calls easier than ever. The BATSCANNER is a compact, user-friendly real-time bat detector. The built-in live monitoring (digital heterodyne) converter tunes to different bat call frequencies automatically. This eliminates the need for any kind of manual adjustment so that the user can focus on listening, rather than actively trying to tune in to individual bats.

Turn on. Listen. The ultrasonic sounds are automatically transformed into the audible range. The device listens continuously, and instantly displays the peak frequency of the detected signal while crystal clear sound is generated through the front-facing speaker. For more private listening, the BATSCANNER is also equipped with a single 3.5mm jack so that headphones may be used when desired.

The automatic frequency tuning offers many advantages over other heterodynes:

  • Automatic mode: The mixing frequency is adjusted and displayed automatically for the detected bat species. Thus, the different bat species can be heard without manual tuning and its main frequency can be seen easily. Immediate display of the main frequency, even with only a brief flyby. This also helps to get a first estimation of the species.

  • Miss no bat just because the wrong frequency is tuned.
  • No tedious searching for the optimal setting, which is especially helpful in the dark!
  • Built-in loudspeaker is optimized to avoid feedback loops.
  • Identical sensitivity as the Elekon BATLOGGER.
  • MANUAL MODE: The mixing frequency can be adjusted manually. Only bat species in the set frequency range can be heard.

Crickets and noise from walking can be a nuisance when observing with bat detectors. The BATSCANNER minimizes this problem by a special handling of lower frequencies. With the single press of the “on” button users can “reset” the frequency to eliminate any potentially unwanted noise.

By sound and not by sight. The BATSCANNER is also available in stereo! In addition to the many things that give this device the advantage over other heterodyne detectors, the stereo edition (using 2 omnidirectional microphones) now allows users who want the extra “edge” to determine which direction the detected bat is coming from, and where it may be flying to. This is especially useful when a bat cannot be seen and users would like to try to “follow” a bat by aiming the detector toward the bat in flight.

The compact size, shape, and durability of this detector make it ideal for kids, educators, wildlife hobbyists, or those involved with outdoor interpretive program, making it a great option from our line of affordable, consumer-grade bat detectors. Comfortable, lightweight, and great for the evening walk or those on the go, the BATSCANNER is the ideal companion for your next bat excursion! Included in delivery: BatScanner, instructions, 3- AAA batteries

  • Do you have these (Elekon Batscanner) in stock? If not, when do you expect more? I would like to order one. Thanks in advance for your response. Cheers Peter p.s., I left you a voice mail too - cell is 860-304-8842

    Generally if you can order an item online it is in stock. We also have a limited number of these used please see: https://batmanagement.com/collections/current-sale-items

  • Does the elekon batscanner give me the species of bat I am listening to?

    Hello Bruce- this detector gives you the strongest frequency of ultrasound it last monitored in the environment. From that, given context of the species assemblage in your local area combined with the habitat you are in, you can sometimes guesstimate the species. For example ~21-30 kHz in most Gulf states would probably be Mexican free tail bats. ~42 kHz in FL would be the Southeastern myotis; however, ~42 kHz in northern states might be any one of up to 6 different myotis species in one area, and so the best than can be done in those areas is to loosely group them as "40 kHz Myotis". There are currently only two devices that can give a visual representation of the bat calls and attempts to name species; we prefer SonoBatLIVE as it is more professional and accurate. It requires a Windows 10 laptop, tablet, or mini computer to run, and also an ultrasonic microphone. The least expensive microphone compatible is the Pettersson u384 or M500-384. Most microphones from Binary Acoustics works as well, with the least expensive being the MiniMic. As a bonus any of these mics can be used with an Android app called Batrecorder, although files recorded would need post processed using the SonoBat Viewer to obtain species suggestions. The SonoBat North America is a professional package that includes the Viewer, SonoBatLIVE, and the Data Wizard, as well as a number of legacy apps for special purposes.
