English term or phrase: free floating
"The Load Disconnect is normally high (equal to battery voltage) and becomes free floating (= open circuit) in case of imminent cell under voltage (no internal pull down in order to limit residual current consumption in case of low cell voltage)."

Aus dem Handbuch eines BMS (Batteriemanagementsystems).

Kann mir jemand bestätigen, ob hier mit "free floating" potenzialfrei gemeint ist? Ich bin unsicher, ob "floating" und "free floating" dasselbe ist. Danke für Eure Hilfe!

Bei free Floating ist das free also so überflüssig wie beim weißen Schimmel das weiß, da jeder Schimmel weiß ist...
