instrument impulse lines tap
dérivation sur ligne d'impulsions d'instrumentation

As before, the EN here is a little ambiguous: it all depends if these are "taps on the pulse lines to the insturments" or "taps on the pulse lines, to feed the instruments"

I find the use of the word 'impulse' odd here, I don't know if there is a special reason for this, or if it really ought to have been simply 'pulse'; would need to know a lot more about their system to figure that out!

I've used the word 'dérivation', as I'm assuming these are ELECTRICAL impulses! Of course, if for some reason they aren't (perhaps it si gas or other fluids...), then you'd need to use 'piquage' instead.
