English term or phrase: Striker, electrical strike
"This is a cost efficient robust electric strike with a solid construction of one-piece cast aluminium body and stainless steel striker."

"To prevent over- or under-travel, set distance between back mounting face of lock and striker to 37mm."

I would love to hear anyone's thoughts on the translation for these phrases, in particular the meaning of "strike" and "striker".
