Batbox Baton W/Software Disc

Product Description

Simple and Versatile Bat Detection.

Listen to bats in real-time! The Baton is a simple but versatile “frequency division” bat detector that allows the listener to hear the ultrasound produced by echolocating bats. The Bat Baton has a division factor of 10, meaning the sounds of a 50kHz bat is reduced to only 5kHz—well within the range of human hearing! These calls are captured through the microphone located at the top of the baton, and then emitted through the front-facing speaker. 

For private listening, the 3.5mm jack allows the use of headphones, as well as provides the ability to connect directly to the computer to use with the included Batscan software. Calls can also be recorded on other devices such as MP3 or minidisc for later analysis. The Baton is also ideal for listening to orthoptera (grasshoppers and crickets) whose communication is in the upper part of, or above human hearing. One PP3 9V battery lasts for up to 30hrs (alkaline).

The Batbox Baton is ideal for:

  • Wildlife hobbyists
  • Educators
  • Interpretive programs
  • Bat Enthusiasts

Although the built in speaker may not produce enough volume to effectively demonstrate to a large group, the Baton performs very well in small group setting and when passed around during interpretive programs, especially when the idea of passing around a fragile tablet is not realistic.

The real advantage is the Baton’s frequency division technology with the real time sonograms. This really allows you to not only hear the bats go by but also "see" them, save them, and would be an introduction to the acoustic world of bats without investing in an expensive unit. 

BatScan Analysis Software (included with purchase)

  • Fast and easy analysis of bat sonar
  • BatScan processes PCM format digital audio data such as .wav sound files. Default settings have been optimized for use with the Baton.
  • BatScan will operate with 8-bit color. However, a 24-bit color is required in order to save screen images as graphics files ( jpeg or bitmap ).
  • BatScan will run under Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 7, 8, and 10. BCM and Myotisoft has used BatScan in Windows on a Mac running Parallels.
  • BatScan runs best with 128MB or more of RAM memory.
  • *MP3 files must be converted to WAV file format before usable by BatScan

Please note: while this frequency division (with amplitude) detector's output is best viewed using the included BatScan software, this device is not intended for precise species identification. They can be used for passage rates at mine entrances, etc. and applications where exact species ID is not important. However, in a quiet recording environment you will easily be able to sort bat passes into their acoustic guilds, and·with practice and knowledge of your local bats, you may be able to sort to species.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask BCM a Question
  • Does thus device pick up the sound of a special whistle used to drive indoor birds crazy?? Please help my birds are being tortured. Bexotic@aol.com.

    It will pick up ultrasound generally from about 10 kHz up to over 120 kHz, so if it is an animal or other noise in that range, and is relatively nearby, then yes.

  • Will this batbox baton pick up sounds made by those whistles,(that make sounds that cannot be heard by humans), thatused to communicate with animals?

    It will pick up ultrasound generally from about 10 kHz up to over 120 kHz, so if it is an animal or other noise in that range, and is relatively nearby, then yes.

  • Will the batbox detect the sounds made by special whistles that make ultrasounds? I need to be able to detect these whistle sounds and show them because a friend's neighbor is using these ultrasound whistles to disturb her birds and animals...the parrots will even say...my ears hurt...when this neighbor blows the whistle...This neighbor has been seen with the whistle in her mouth!

    Yes the Baton will record these sounds. Onscreen you will see "normal" ambient noise displayed, but when the "whistle" is played, there will suddenly be a strong, fairly constant new "noise band" appear with a fairly constant frequency. The Baton benifits being in a quiet, stationary location, so if you are walking around with it there will be lots of "noise", but when the whistle blows you will obviously see it. You can test this using "dog whistle" apps on your smartphone, keeping in mind the physical whistle will be many times more powerful (easier to record) than the speaker test on your smartphone. -JC

  • Hi! I’m going to be adopting some pet rats later this summer, and in my research I learned that rats make a lot of ultrasonic sounds (20-50kHz) - including many of their more joyful sounds, like “laughing” when being tickled or playing. I thought it would be cool to be able to hear them and be more aware of their full range of expression, and thus I came across bat detectors! The BatBox Baton is probably the best suited for my purposes, given that I can leave it on while I play with my rats and listen in, but I thought I’d ask for your thoughts! Have you ever heard of someone using bat detectors for rats or other companion animals before?

    Hello - yes reseearchers are using "bat" detectors for many other purposes... study of flying squirrels and rodents. While the Baton will give you an instant visual representation of the ultrasound, it works best in quiet environments. You might consider the Pettersson u256, although that ties up a smartphone or tablet- though a suitable Android phone can be had for $100. However, if you mount the Baton in the enclosure near the animal and refrain from touching it, possibly in a glass enclosure like an aquarium that will be shielding ultrasound caused by otherthings in the room, it might be a neat setup. Things like flourencent lights, motion detectors, computers, any many other things make a lot of ultrasound.
