German term or phrase: Gleichlaufverband
Might this be a 'synchronous group', given that "Gleichlaufverfahren" is "synchronous mode" etc.?

e.g. Diese Steuerungen sind kommunikative Universalisten, die durchaus in Gleichlaufverbänden ihren Einsatz finden.

Explanation:
Compare the following Siemens press releases:

http://w1.siemens.com/press/de/pr_cc/2007/08_aug/admc2007071... (German)
"Die Einachssteuerung Simotion D410 ergänzt die Controller-Familie Simotion D4x5, die vorzugsweise bei Mehrachsanwendungen zum Einsatz kommt. Simotion D410 kann für Einachsanwendungen wie Wickler, Querschneider oder Vorschubeinrichtungen oder auch in ***Gleichlaufverbänden*** bei modularen Maschinenkonzepten eingesetzt werden. Das mit dem Motion Controller D410 automatisierte Maschinenmodul erhält dabei den Leitwert von einer übergeordneten Steuerung und synchronisiert seine Achse auf diesen Leitwert auf. Durch die Modularisierung können die Maschinenmodule einzeln ausgetestet und bei Bedarf im laufenden Betrieb hinzugefügt oder abgekoppelt werden."

http://w1.siemens.com/press/en/pr_cc/2007/08_aug/admc2007071... (English)
"The Simotion D410 single-axis controller augments the Simotion D4x5 series of controllers, which is preferred for use in multi-axis applications. Simotion D410 can be used for single-axis applications such as winders, cross cutters or feeder units, or also in ***synchronized systems*** such as modular machine concepts. The machine module automated with the D410 motion controller thus receives the guide value from a higher-level controller and synchronizes its axis to this guide value. Thanks to the modularization, the machine modules can be fully tested individually and added or removed during live operation, if required."

"Siemens has added a single-axis controller to its portfolio. The Simotion D410 integrates PLC and drive control functions, allowing it to automate complete machines. Up to four fast cam outputs or three probes can be implemented using its onboard I/O. As well as being suitable for single-axis applications such as winders, cross-cutters and feeders, the controller can be used in ***synchronised systems***. It offers a choice of Profibus or Profinet communications."
