English term or phrase: dead down

I'm translating an instruction manual on EV chargers for users and operators. Under the title "Power distribution" there is the followin paragraph:

"The main power can be switched off using the main switch (A). This switch is accessible when opening the front door. If the main switch is off, all components in the charger are dead down to the bottom side of the main switch where the grid cable is connected."

I don't quite understand what happens with all the components. Is it possible that the meaning is that they are desenergized?
My try:
"La alimentación principal puede desconectarse mediante el contacto principal (A). Puede accederse a ese contacto con la puerta delantera abierta. Si el contacto principal está desconectado, todos los componentes del cargador están sin energía hasta la parte inferior del interruptor principal donde está conectado el cable de la red."

Thanks in advance.
