Thank you for purchasing Elekon AG's BATSCANNER STAND.
The BATSCANNER STAND is an automatic bat detector for stationary use. It converts the
ultrasonic bat calls into an audible frequency with the „mixer“ principle (heterodyne). The mixing
frequency is adjusted automatically for the detected bat species. Thus, the different bat species
can be heard without manual tuning. Optionally, an instructional audio file can be played back
before the detection period.
It is ideal for demonstration purposes, exhibitions, booths and can by used by virtually anyone
even without any bat knowledge.
The device is on, as soon as power is available. After power up, it is in sleep mode. The LED is off.
The microphone must be protected from rain and generally from liquids and harsh
environmental influences. The housing, push-button and speaker are waterproof only
if mounted correctly. The speaker must be mounted such that no water can
accumulate between front panel and speaker.
Power supply:
Only use the provided 12V power supply. Unplug from outlet when not in use and
before conducting maintenance. The included power supply adapter must be
protected from liquids and environmental influences. Do not use with a damaged
cord or plug. Do not attempt to open the power supply adapter.
Repairs should only be carried out by a qualified customer care centre. When
disconnecting the power adapter from the wall outlet always grasp the adapter itself
and not the cord.
BATSCANNER STAND microphone must be placed away from electronic devices,
speakers, lamps, machines, cars, or other ultrasonic sound sources. The device is
very sensitive and it will pick up and amplify any noise. This might lead to unwanted
Default mode (without SD card)
The device acts as a simple bat detector. The mixing frequency is adjusted automatically for the
detected bat species and the ultrasonic calls are transformed into audible range.
