TAPS (Tactical Augmented Pressure Switch) from TNVC and Unity Tactical is a complete one point command and control system for weapon-mounted electronics. It provides low profile, dual-device control for lights and lasers. TAPS allows placement of weapon accessories in optimal location while providing a single point of actuation of the user’s choosing. Rather than needing to place both light and laser where they can be activated directly, or needing to find places for multiple remote pressure pads while securing loose cables, TAPS literally places control at the operator’s fingertips in a single, user-friendly package.
TAPS attaches directly to rails with hardware, eliminating the need for troublesome Velcro, zip-ties, tape, and tubing to secure remote switches. The The electronic switches provide momentary only operation of lights, and both momentary and constant firing of lasers.
The Surefire-type plug features a angled strain relief to point the cable back towards the rail, reducing snag hazard and cable damage. The Crane-type plug features universal geometry that makes it more compatible with various laser ports.
TAPS-DBAL allows for full functional use of the unique “Visible Override” feature on Steiner DBAL-A3 and A4 lasers. The Y-Splitter Crane Laser leads plug into the standard and Visible Override ports on the back of the laser. The Light lead plugs into the Surefire or Modlite tail cap port.
Button 1 will fire the white light + DBAL laser visible laser, regardless if it is physically set to an infrared setting.
Button 2 will fire the DBAL laser in whatever setting is manually selected on the laser housing.
TAPS-DBAL is the only switch that provides full functional utility of the DBAL-A3/A4 Visible Override feature. This capability gives users unmatched control of their light/laser combo in all tactical situations.
