English term or phrase: local disconnect
"Check: power supply, local disconnect"
Toujours dans un guide de depannage d'un convoyeur de piece. Oncherche a comprendre pourquoi le moteur ne se met pas en marche.
S'agit-il juste de l'interrupteur?

Explanation:
More context is needed to be sure, as the language is so 'telegraphic'. But if these are specific items to be checked, I wouldn't expect 'disconnect' to mean 'a disconnection', but rather 'the facility provided for disconnection', i.e. an isolator — though it could just as easily mean the plug it is plugged in with. Hard to say for sure without knowing a lot more about the specific system.
