Features of Bat Pi 2RT

• All functions of the well-known “Bat Pi 2” image are still available.
• The “Bat Pi 2RT” can be accessed and configured (via Internet browser) via a network from anywhere and any device.
• New radio tracking function in the “Bat Pi2RT” with a USB-SDR-RTL stick

5 new features

O
Near range tracking (RT): Detection of telemetry transmitters nearby (depending on the antenna and the amplifier). Scanning of a predefined frequency range by the device and simultaneous storage of up to 4 different transmission frequencies with recording as wav file including time stamp and frequency information.
Application: Monitoring of flight path of telemetry animals at small passages, bridges, tunnels, roosts, etc.

O Detection of telemetry transmitters in a predefined frequency range or of predefined frequency (RT / WAV). Extended tracking range (by different software). Simultaneous recording and listening via headphones. Save as wav file (comparable to ultrasound recording). Application: Monitoring of flight path in field

O Monitoring of a frequency range by continuous detection of all signals in the complete selected frequency range (RT / PNG). Continuous storage of recorded parameters in a dat file and graphical presentation as png file with frequency information.

O Remote transmission (WLAN) of the recording to any device (for example, notebook, tablet, mobile phone, etc.) (RT / IP).

O OpenWebRX Remote transmission (WLAN) of the recording to any device (for example, notebook, tablet, mobile phone, etc.) (RT / IP) with any web browser.

We recommend the Raspberry Pi models Pi2 and Pi3 for the Bat Pi 2RT! The “Bat Pi 2RT” image can also be operated on the models A + and B +, but only ultrasonic mode will work while RT mode will not work, because of missing power of the smaller models.
