English term or phrase: rollover

I am searching the translation for the word "rollover" in the following sentences:

This user block example connects to XXX pulse accumulator inputs to provide a Total Counts output that is a 32-bit integer. It handles XXX 16-bit __rollovers___ and implements a user reset of total counts to zero. The 16-bit accumulator resets to zero when the I/O pack reboots or the channel's mode is changed. The counter increments when the input voltage transitions above the PAThreshold setting. The next pulse after accumulator is at 65535 will result in the accumulator rolling over to zero and continuing to count from there on following pulses.

This user block example connects to XXX pulse accumulator inputs to provide a frequency output. ___Rollover___ is handled. Three configuration values are offered.

The translation in the TM for this is "Überschlag", but i doubt that it has anything to do with it.

Thanks for the help!

Das ist ein arithmetischer oder Zählerüberlauf. Rollover könnte man aber auch unübersetzt lassen, wie Microsoft das in anderen Bedeutungen von Rollover handhabt.

Auf Englisch müsste es eigentlich overflow heißen, also wäre "Überlauf" schon richtig, aber "Zählerüberlauf" ist genauer.

The condition that occurs when data resulting from input or processing requires more bits than have been provided in hardware or software to store the data. Examples of overflow include a floating-point operation whose result is too large for the number of bits allowed for the exponent, a string that exceeds the bounds of the array allocated for it, and an integer operation whose result contains too many bits for the register into which it is to be stored.
