English term or phrase: a second good guard is cycled
sensors, safety applications, muting module

MASKING OF A FAILURE If a guard is opened but a switch fails to open, the redundant safety switch opens and causes the Muting Module to de-energize its outputs. If the faulty guard is then closed, both Muting Module input channels also close, but because one channel did not open, the Muting Module does not reset. However, if the faulty switch is not replaced and ****a second good guard is cycled****, opening and then closing both of the Muting Module’s input channels, the Muting Module considers the failure to be corrected.

does it mean...
...if the switch is not replaced and if a second "protection device"?/second guarding sequence? is switched on/off/on, without errors ...
I am really unsure about this one

thanks!

English translation:yes, a second protection device
Explanation:
I would understand this to mean that a second protection device trips but then resets (i.e., cycles).
