English translation:switch vane, duplex high-speed circuit breaker
Explanation:
A Fahne in this case would be a vane ( a small, thin piece of metal on the end of the shaft).

A Schnellschalter is a high-speed (or fast-acting) circuit breaker (source: Cornelsen, Tech WB Maschinenbau/Anlagentechnik/Umwelttechnik. 'Dopple' means dual or duplex (not Doppelschnell!)
