Titley have built upon the success and feedback from the Chorus and the Anabat Swift to develop a fully customisable, long-lasting wildlife recorder. The Ranger includes all of the features you have come to expect from Titley Scientific recorders: durable in tough field conditions, easy-to-use, compact, light-weight and with built-in GPS.

 

Choose from a wide range of microphones including low-profile side-mount or front-mounted acoustic microphones, and front-mounted omnidirectional or directional ultrasonic microphones – all of which are weatherproof, highly sensitive and easily user replaceable in the field. Front-mounted microphones can also be fitted to extension cables up to 100m. Whether you want to record birds in stereo, frogs in the rain, bats up a mast, or all three at once, the Ranger has you covered.

 

Note that the Ranger is supplied without microphones, so you'll need to select the microphone(s) you need.

 

Setting up is simple; use the preset recording modes and the GPS will determine your location, sunset and sunrise times to record precisely when needed. No phones or external devices are needed for setup – you can adjust the settings using the internal colour touchscreen. It's easy to create complex multi-task schedules on device or using the Toolbox scheduler built in to Insight. Deploy for long periods with 8 AA battery capacity (100 nights ultrasonic or 700 hours acoustic*), or use the external power with or without solar panels for extended or permanent installation. The camouflaged, robust housing has multiple mounting points for everything from cable ties to camera-tripod mounts to elastic straps, or if you want extra security, you can purchase the security box and python lock accessory.

 

Features:

  • Record acoustic (stereo or mono) and ultrasonic simultaneously
  • Easy to use stand-alone recorder, no phone required for setup
  • Automatic schedules for easy deployment, or create your own custom schedule using the colour touchscreen or using Toolbox in Insight
  • Weatherproof, robust, camouflaged, tripod mountable housing
  • You can choose from our range of microphones to suit your needs, all of which are weatherproof and user-replaceable
  • Power with 4 or 8 AA batteries, or external power with solar panel options
  • Lasts for 100 nights (full spectrum ultrasonic) or 700 hours recording time (acoustic) on 8 AA batteries*
  • Built-in GPS with transect mode available
  • Built-in temperature sensor
  • Headphone output to check microphone function and listen to bats in frequency division audio
  • Analyse recordings with free Insight software
  • Optional accessories: lockable security box, microphone extension cables, fused power lead, solar panel

 

You have the choice between the user-replaceable acoustic and ultrasonic microphones. The Ranger has three channels, so you can customise your microphone setup to record:

  • Mono (1 channel) acoustic. Low-profile side-mounted or extension-mount.
  • Stereo (2 channels) acoustic. Low-profile side-mounted.
  • Mono (1 channel) ultrasonic. Front-mounted, omnidirectional or directional options.
  • Or any combination of the above simultaneously, or on a custom schedule.

 

All microphones feature a high-performance microphone element, with built-in low noise preamplifiers, low noise floor and are weather resistant.
