Smaller and Programmable, for greater flexibility

Mataki-Lite tags are the lightest member of the Mataki family weighing in at around 3.5g excluding a battery. Unlike Mataki-Classic, this is a tracker only device. It can upload its log data to a Mataki-Classic or Pi-Base base station.

The tracking and logging behaviour of Mataki-Lite tags is entirely controlled by a user-supplied script giving total control over the logging process and allowing species-specific behaviour.
