Tech/Engineering / vibration measurement
German term or phrase: überlagert/Wechselstromüberlagerung
context: technical data for a vibration transmitter (sensor)

"Optionell kann das 4-20 mA Normsignal mit einem Wechselstromsignal mit einer Amplitude von 0-1 mA (Spitze) überlagert werden. Dies wird zum Beispiel zur Frequenzanalyse des Schwingungssignales verwendet.
Beispiel: Bei einem Messbereich von 8 mm/s und einem aktuellen Schwingpegel von 4 mm/s beträgt das Ausgangssignal einen Wert von 12 mA +/- 0.5 mA Wechselstromüberlagerung."

Can I just say :
...the 4-20 mA standard signal can be overlaid with an AC signal...
or an AC signal ... can be overlaid on top of ...the 4-20mA standard signal

and is AC overlay a correct translation of Wechselstromüberlagerung?

to superimpose /superimposed AC voltage
Explanation:
The AC voltage is superimposed, so I'd reverse the sentence:
An AC signal can be superimposed the on the 4-20 mA standard signal...
