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.

Therefore:
"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.

Thanks,

Wolfgang
