English term or phrase: adder
adder is for moving the control panel
rockdrigo
Spanish translation:See below
Explanation:
I agree with the colleagues: adder is an addition function. But, seeing the sentence, ('...adder is for moving the control panel..') I dont see the adding function fits in here. I can guess a snake-like lever-acting device,(adder is also a snake) to move the control panel, Just a hunch!
I would translate: "tirador, palanca".
Luck!

Explanation:
Encontré los siguientes en el Diccionario Politécnico EN>ES de F. Beigbeder: Adder = circuito aditivo (TV),dispositivo de adición. Adder circuit = circuito de suma. Adder tube = tubo sumador. Qusáz alguno de ellos pueda engranar en el contexto. Espero sea de ayuda.
