descentramiento total


Explanation:
Parece que se refiere al descentramiento o desplazamiento horizontal causado por el movimiento y roce o los efectos de fricción del vagón, y el sistema se utiliza para medir el tipo y velocidad de descentramiento o desplazamiento

Puedes ver un ejemplo de cómo se utiliza "descentramiento" en un contexto similar en la página web :-)

Answer to your notes:
There isn\'t enough context, so I guess it\'s taking about the fact that the weighing system has some sort of compensation values for the offsetting caused by friction (and, therefore, adjusting the inconsistent weight data).

You could be right in terms of the \"type and speed\" of the specific type of wagon, again there is not much context here. Si quieres envíame una parte del texto a charliebeckstrom@telefonica.net y le echo un vistazo ;-)
