Batbox Baton

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.
