|German term or phrase: Stecklötöse|
|"Wenn der Trafo unter vakuum getränkt wird, ist unbedingt darauf zu achten, daß die Stecklötösen ganz frei von Lackresten sind. Notfalls Stecklötösen erst nach Tränkung bestücken!"|
One more question from the transformer text. Are "Stecklötösen" plug-in solder lugs? That's my feeling, but I can't get any confirmation from the dictionaries, and search engine hits are rather inconclusive. So I want something definitive for the ProZ glossary as well as my present job. TIA for your help.
on what the 'Steck' refers to.
If it is the mounting method (i.e. insertion), we're simply talking about standard (inserted) solder lugs/terminals.
However, it could also be the connecting method (i.e. quick-connect with a flat terminal blade).
Either way, the connecting surfaces are to be kept free of varnish during impregnation.
In case of doubt, simply say 'solder lugs/terminals'.
There isn't a single reference for 'slot-in solder lug', in whatever combination one uses.

|Thanks John. I'm not really sure whether the mounting or connecting method is being referred to, but if you reckon just "solder lug/terminal" is OK, then I'll play it safe and use one of those. But it sounds like "inserted" could be, well, inserted in some contexts. Better than "slot-in", which I couldn't find any reference for either in relation to solder lugs or terminals. Thanks again John and also David - appreciate your help.|
