Dive into possibilities: The new SM3 aquatic models

The SM3 aquatic is a device that's tougher than any we’ve ever made. The all new Song Meter features a rugged, die-cast aluminum body and an unprecedented 3 year warrantee. It’s a machine you can count on in the most extreme of environments.

But no two customers have the same demands out in the field, and that’s why it’s also our most flexible product line. Just about any feature can be tailored to fit your needs.

  • There's an ultrasonic and acoustic model
  • They're the only recorders of their kind to simultaneously monitor above and below the water line
  • Record any combination of marine, terrestrial, and avian life
  • Monitor all kinds of aquatic life, from 20Hz to 48kHz
  • Perform acoustic recording and noise logging simultaneously
  • Use out of the box recording programs, or customize your own.
  • Save time by choosing from a menu of standard options, such as daytime, nighttime, or continuous.
  • Or, create your own custom schedule with our easy-to-use configurator software.

Multiple Hardware Options

Outfit the SM3 to your needs. You can choose to record with the standard acoustic hydrophone, or you can opt to upgrade to an ultrasonic hydrophone. See our accessories page for more details.

Recap of the Effect of Noise on Aquatic Life conference in Budapest!

Recap of the Effect of Noise on Aquatic Life conference in Budapest!

You may know from our previous blog post that we were in Costa Rica this month for the International Bat Research Conference. What you may not know was that while we were unveiling the Echo Meter Touch in Costa Rica, our sales manager, Mona Doss, was all the way in Budapest, Hungary for the Effects of Noise on Aquatic Life conference!

The conference, which happens every three years, was extremely well organized. The venue was excellent and the staff were very helpful when we were setting up our exhibit! Some topics presented included studies on the effects of anthropogenic noise, underwater hearing in marine animals, behavioral responses to noise, and global trends in ocean noise. These are crucial matters to us and our and to the users of our SM2M+ marine recorders, which are increasingly being used as underwater noise loggers.

We were very impressed by the conference and we can't wait for the next one in 2016. Hope to see you there!
