skrútiť


Explanation:
Reading your contextual sentance, I imagine you wrap a wire around the sensor and then twist the wire and its returned end, effectively twisting two strands - I would say this is the ‘double twist’ - then this needs to be done at least 3-5 times (maybe to provide securs connection.

In this context, I would translate \"Wrap once around sensor body and double twist three to five twists minimum.\” as below:

\”obmotať raz okolo senzora a skrútiť minimálne tri až päť krát.\”
