English term or phrase: self retaining circuit
Context : "Press the emergency stop button to cause the operational power and self retaining circuit to be cut off. After the self retaining circuit is cut off, turn the power back on again."
Interlang
French translation:circuit auto-bloqueur
Explanation:
It is a circuit that maintains voltage during a predefined period after main power goes down (often used in machine tools and electric devices). In an emergency, it is necessary to effectively cut off power (voltage must be zero for a period of time) before restarting the machine otherwise the emergency status will not be reset.

"circuit auto-verrouillé" or "circuit auto-excité"


Explanation:
This sounds similar to a relay which is self-energized through one of its own contacts. Break the self-energizing (retaining) circuit and the relay drops back to normal (de-energized) status.
