GLOSSARY ENTRY (DERIVED FROM QUESTION BELOW)
English term or phrase:
switches used to disconnect electrical power from the machine, or the line
English to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Electronics / Elect Eng / control of hazardous energy lockout/tagout procedure
English term or phrase:disconnects
M. When switching electrical disconnects "ON", turn your head opposite to the panel and look away from the switch itself (in case of a flash explosion from a direct short circuit).
[Note: This is a step from a lockout/tagout procedure. Previously, locks and tags were applied, the machine was repaired and now locks and tags have been removed.
I'm afraid I don't understand "disconnects" in this sentence.
Could this be a typo or something?
Could anybody please help me out?
