German term or phrase: Mutterprint
Context sentence:

Kontrollieren ob die Hauptprintbox am Mutterprint festsitzend im Stecker eingesetzt ist, ....

I have a (somewhat cluttered) photo of the assembly in question, but there's no telling what the "Mutterprint" is from that.

A Google on "Mutterprint" brings me all of four links; one (http://www.rubran.ch/Datenblaetter/B82694_Mutteprint_RUB05.1... shows something which looks like it could be a gasket, so I'm thinking this could be a reasonable translation.... Any takers?

agree  Guenther Danzer: das seh' ich auch so. Wer so grausame Texte verfasst, kann auch "Mutterprint" für "Hauptplatine" verwenden ;-)
