Operator Present / Absent Switch
Explanation:
Operator Present / Absent Switch - eg.

"Operator Present Switch

This switch acts as a safety interlock that doesn't allow the unit to move unless the operator initiates movement. If the operator lets go of the handle, the unit will stop moving. The intelligence of the G-Force will not allow this critical safety feature to be overridden. If no movement is sensed for a brief period of time, the unit will disable itself until the switch is engaged again."

I found just one reference for \"absent switch\", i.e.

\"...it cannot be \'switched out\' and left unstaffed with its signals at \'clear\' while trains are running, although it does have an \'absent switch\' which transfers certain indications to Llandudno Junction box.\"

I think that \"absent\" could perhaps also be dropped.

Another reference:

\"Operator present switch - a safety interlock that prevents movement unless initiated by the operator\"
