English term or phrase: Terminal DF on Alternator
This term appears in a technical training handout on Electronic Diesel Control. It is the label of a component that appears in a diagram titled "Sensors and Switches". In case other labels in the list can provide a cue, here is the whole list:
--------------------------------------------------
Left side of ECU: Input of sensors and switches:

“Read” coil of immobiliser
Slide travel sensor
Fuel temperature sensor
Injector needle travel sensor
Air mass sensor
Air temperature sensor
Engine speed sensor
Accelerator pedal position sensor
Idle speed switch
Brake pedal switch
Clutch pedal switch
Coolant temperature sensor
Vehicle speed sensor
Terminal DF on alternator
---------------------------------------

I am looking for the meaning of "terminal DF".

Thanks.

Terminal Designations (Excerpts from DIN Standard 72 552)
The terminal designations do not identify the conductors, because device
with different terminal designations can be connected at the two ends of
each conductor. If the number of terminal designations is not
sufficient (multiple-contact connections), the terminals are
consecutively numbered using numbers or letters whose representations
of specific functions are not standardized.
