French translation:"... avec le côté étampé (ou étiqueté) orienté vers le haut"
Explanation:
There is a chance that RIOUAL is right and that the switch box has a label "up" on it. And in that case, the translation offered is the right one.

But since the word "up" is not put inside quotation marks or marked in any way, I think that perhaps the expression "stamped up" is being used. In that case, it means that there is a stamp or label or sticker of some sort applied to one of the surfaces of the switch box, and that this surface is the one that should face upwards.
