Tachyon beam lasts for 10 seconds. The drain is miserable imo when you consider it keeps you uncloaked for longer than you should be. You only have 3 seconds to unload ordnance before the auto-cloak kicks in.
Plus, tachyon beam counts as an attack to NPCs and you get instant-return fire on you...which means torpedoes that will track you when cloaked.
It just didn't work for me. My attack runs are less than 5 seconds and my torps/mines hit after I re-cloak.
I think the tach beam works a lot better in a raptor. A BoP just cant take much hits nor keep nose on target for too long...or get too close to a target.
