Application

TakkStrip is perfect for applications that require a lot of flexibility. Sensors can be used together as a strip or separated into 5 individual taxels and configured to meet your needs. TakkStrip 2 is perfect for applications that require a surface to be paneled. Because three of the sensors are cast together it is easy to combine multiple strips and create an array to cover any surface. With soldering connections on the back all the wires stay out of the way.
