The Ranger is the only field recorder you will need. Record everything from bats to birds simultaneously with one device.

We 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.

Setting up is simple; use our 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 is 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 camouflage, 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.

You have the choice between our 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 elements, with built-in low noise preamplifiers, low noise floor and are weather resistant.
