Dutch term or phrase: Zet rechtsboven de vinkjes uit van de deflektor en bias spanning
Electronics, regarding a lens system. I am interested esp in the word vinkjes here but the whole sentence is weird.

Explanation:
This is a bit of a guess -- more context would be very helpful. 'Vinkjes' is the common Dutch term for checkboxes (actually the checkmarks, but also the boxes by extension), as commonly used on control and entry forms on computer screens. Thus I have to assume that this text refers to a computer interface for controlling the lens system (for an electron microscope, perhaps), and a possible translation of the sentence would be 'Switch off [OR: disable] the deflector and bias voltages using the check boxes at the upper right'.
