The iFR-IV is an integrated field recording system developed for overnight and extended duration monitoring projects.  Drawing just 3.2 Watts, the iFR-IV is Binary Acoustic Technologies lowest power recording solution.  It is capable of recording up to three days using the internal battery and up to two weeks using a small 40 Ah external car battery.

A complete monitoring system can be assembled using a minimum of components.  A typical overnight recording system consists of an iFR-IV Field Recorder along with an ultrasonic microphone.  The system can also be reconfigured into a extended duration recording system by adding,  a USB hard drive, and a solar panel.

The iFR-IV is a fully weather proof system.  It includes an integrated battery system, an embedded microcontroller, a high speed 16-bit digitizing system and two USB connectors which allow it to control and operate an ultrasonic microphone along with a combination of  external USB hard-drives, Compact Flash writers, or USB thumb-drives.

Internally, the iFR-IV runs an embedded version of  SPECTíR software.  It supports an operation timer, the WAVPACK loss-less compressed file format, sleep mode to conserve battery power, a file scrubber to reduce noise-only files, and a remote file transfer mode that will automatic transfer recordings back to a specified FTP site.

The iFR-IV operates using Binary Acoustic Technologies EXT ultrasonic microphone units.  The microphone interface supports cable lengths of up to 250 feet.
