mecanismo de catraca

I believe trinquete as suggested is more used in Continental POrt and in Spanish.

In Brazil we use more often mecanismo de catraca.

Check the reference below... it may help you with this and other terms used in your manual... :-)

Sem um contexto mais amplo, fica difícil fornecer uma tradução adequada, mas creio que a primeira parte da sentença poderia ser traduzida assim:

"O conjunto de mecanismo de catraca e manivela externa é necessário para baixar o XX Couch no caso de uma falha de energia....."

Boa sorte
