English term or phrase: grade bump
Context : surveying with a laser system.
Also what is the exact meaning of grade in this context? Sometimes, it seems to mean slope, sometimes a level.
There is also the term grade reverse which seems to mean "change sign of some reference axis".
A URL on this subject in French would be useful if anyone knows of one.

Sonde de Nivellement
Explanation:
Sonde de Nivellement si le contexte se refère à bump sensor dans le texte ci dessous.
Autrement: Mesure de secousses?


The LaserChalkLine DL™ Kit now includes a Momentum innovation called the Bump Sensor. Attaching the Bump Sensor to the rotary laser transforms the unit into a semi-automatic laser.

If the rotary laser is bumped after the level or grade has been set, the Bump Sensor will emit a loud audible alarm telling the user to re-check the vial settings.

sortie de qualité


Explanation:
Pour grade, la traduction est toujours délicate. Vous pouvez aussi ajouter comme sens : stade, degré, qualité. Quant à bump, vous pouvez aussi avoir : bosse, choc, heurt ou sortie Cela m'amène à la traduction proposée, concernant l'évaluation d'un signal reçu. Mais sans plus de contexte, j'avoue que je sèche un peu quand même...
