on & off
marche et arrêt


Explanation:
Ma suggestion est pour la traduction, pas une explication :
Toutes conduites machine de marche/arrêt
Tout câblage électrique machine de marche/arrêt

Suivant le contexte de votre traduction (présence d'étiquettes ou non) on pourra même garder ON et OFF (câblage ON et OFF)

disagree  Tony M: 'Fraid not, it is clear from the context that it has a quite different meaning here. / On-Off in this sense would be meaningless when applied to piping (or even wiring) — we just wouldn't use the terms like that in EN; 'On/Off button', yes!

Explanation:
Like I explained in my discussion post — but very unsure how best to actually formulate it in FR.

Note that 'on' here has the usual preposition meaning of 'sur'.

Explanation:
Based on the discussion.

Tout câblage électrique machine interne et externe

(although it's not clear to me why the customer would have to supply electrical wiring inside the machine they're buying?)

That makes more sense. Still not sure how to translate though.

Doesn't "externe" convey that meaning well enough on its own?

Tout câblage électrique machine externe (y compris ceux montés sur la machine) ???

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
disagree  Tony M: That's exactly the problem, Marc: it wouldn't be literally internal wiring, but wiring on the outside of the machine, but fitted onto it; for example, the cable leading inside a piece of conduit on the machine to the actual connecting box.
