Dies ist eine zusammengeschusterte Erklärung. Profis wissen es vielleicht besser.

Good luck!

Mapping = Abbildung

DNP = distribution network protocol

The apparatus is therefore capable of showing the points of the distribution network (protocol).

DNP-Mapping der Unterbrecherkontakte

This is no more than an educated guess.

DNP stands for Distributed Network Protocol and remains DNP in German.

The "point mapping" is tricky.
Point can be Kontaktpunkt, Anschlusspunkt, Unterbrecherkontakt, etc. Since a recloser is involved (Wiedereinschaltvorrichtung, or Kurzunterbrecher per Siemens), I would hazard a guess that Unterbrecherkontakte would work here.
Mapping can be left as mapping (per Ernst). I tried all sorts of possible permutations of Anschluss, Kontakt, Punkt, etc. with Abbildung, Mapping, Zuordnung, etc., all to no avail. Thus I'd be inclined to play it close to the vest and stay with mapping.

Ernst Englisch-Deutsch : point, power o. electric point (electr) / Anschlußstelle f (Teil der Hauselektroinstallation)
Ernst Englisch-Deutsch : point, breaker point (electr, mot veh) / Unterbrecherkontakt m
Ernst Englisch-Deutsch : mapping (comp) / Mapping n
Ernst Englisch-Deutsch : mapping, map (math) / Abbildung f

Hope this will be of some help.

DNP point mapping

Leave this term untranslated.
DNP = "distributed network protocol"
This is a data communications protocol in a distributed network, whereby DNP point mapping is a function with which the connection nodes of the network are mapped, i.e. a path is for the node is created and saved in a user mapping file.
