Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
neutral  Tony M: But I don't think this is the noun for the physical device, the actual 'pick-up', which here appears to = coil; I believe here it has the meaning of 'action of picking up', but the context isn't clear enough to know quite which word to choose.

  -> If you are right Tony, then the translation should be: ''la mise au travail de la bobine''. http://www.granddictionnaireterminologique.com/btml/fra/r_mo...
