Dutch term or phrase: bedrijfskeuze schakelaar
Context:

I am currently working on translating a user manual for an emergency power generator set.

The complete sentence is as follows:

BEDRIJFSKEUZE SCHAKELAARS

Op het front van het schakelpaneel zijn een tweetal bedrijfskeuze schakelaars opgenomen met de volgende standen;

Bedrijfskeuze generatorset:
1= uit
2= automatisch
3= onbelast proefbedrijf
4= belast proefbedrijf

Bedrijfskeuze belast beproeven:
1= belast beproeven DTRO-01
2= belast beproeven DTRO-02
3= belast beproeven DTRO-03

All suggestions welcome - KudoZ points will be awarded asap.

Thanks,

Pikey

Explanation:
I recently translated a similar text in which the term 'standschakelaar' was used. I think this the same item is meant here. I translated it with position switch (see also Google.com).
