German to English translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering - Engineering (general) / hoisting mechanism
German term or phrase: Kraftlosschaltung
Hi everybody,

Can anybody decypher this sentence?
I believe "Kraftlosschaltung" in this context refers to: "disengaging the hoist/lifting mechanism"?

Die Sicherheitsverriegelung zur Kraftlosschaltung der Hubmechanik verriegelt prozesssicher und wird durch eine Feder an der oberen Sicherungsverriegelung abgesichert.

"The safety locking device for disengaging the hoist mechanism locks (prozesssicher - what does that mean??) "process-sure"?? and is itself secured with a spring at the upper safety lock"

Wow, Deutsche Sprache, schwere Sprache...

Any help is appreciated.
