Blackburn Hydraulic PowerTap System from Thomas & Betts The Blackburn Hydraulic PowerTap System from Thomas & Betts is a battery-powered wedge-tap connector installation tool that eliminates the need to use a powder-actuated, fire-on style tool, resulting in minimal cleaning and maintenance. The Blackburn Hydraulic PowerTap System employs a battery-powered hydraulic system that eliminates the mess and expense caused by powder-actuated cartridges. The Blackburn Hydraulic PowerTap System features a quick-connect coupler that allows for a fast and positive engagement between the tool head assembly and the power unit. The C-member of a wedge-tap connector applies constant contact pressure to the conductor through the expansion and contraction of thermal cycling.
