Upgrade to full spectrum without having to buy a new detector

You can now get your Anabat Express upgraded to record in full spectrum.

Why you should upgrade your Anabat Express:

  • Reduce your e-waste footprint
  • Continue using a familiar product
  • Increase the lifespan of your Express to meet current guidelines
  • Save money compared to purchasing a new full spectrum bat detector


Here are some things to note about the upgrade:

  • Your detector will look the same, with the same user interface on the inside. There will be an extra button that allows you to swap between full spectrum (FS) and zero crossing (ZC) recording, as well as adjust the sensitivity between 3 levels. More detailed settings can be adjusted by connecting the Express to the computer via USB, just as it is now. All other existing features of the Express will remain.
  • You will need to send the detector back to your local distributor to perform the upgrade. Depending on timing and popularity, it may take several weeks.
  • It will record automatically in FS (.wav), you can also choose to record ZC (.zc) files if desired.
  • ZC files will be recorded in .zc format (individual sequence files), not .zca (an entire night) like it previously did.
  • Full spectrum recordings require much more storage space, so you will need to ensure you use larger SD cards.
  • The new SD card size limit will be 512GB (not 32GB as it currently is).
  • We expect the battery life to be around 30 nights for FS, depending on bat activity. ZC will be much longer.
  • You can use the same microphone if you have the newer V2 or V3 type. The older type (no version marking on the microphone) will still work but battery life will be reduced. For best results we recommend upgrading to the new V3 microphone.
  • Recordings (FS or ZC) can be opened and analysed in the free version of Anabat Insight.
  • There will be a 1 year warranty on work carried out.
All specifications will remain the same as the Anabat Express, except as outlined below.-
Battery Life 30 nights full spectrum recording, longer in zero crossing*
*Battery life estimations based on 10% bat activity at 25°C and 10 hour nights using 4 (Alkaline) AA batteries
Memory SD card (max 512GB)
File Output Full spectrum (.wav) and zero crossing sequence files (.zc)
Warranty 1 year (detector only)
