French term or phrase: pendant,prise femelle,pris male?
Hello,
I am unable to get the right way of putting this sentence, why pendant , is used here and I have a doubt in the translations for la prise femelle(receptacle??) and prise male(male plugs?)
The sentence is given below:
…..la prise femelle dirige les signaux reçus vers les lesdits canaux et désactives, pendant la prise de ligne, son haut-parleur et son microphone, pendant la prise de ligne , les signaux sont acheminés à travers les prises males, en direction d’un combiné téléphonique.
Thanks
