English term or phrase:idle-down
"This test is required prior to any remote traction or brake control. Brake pipe test must be performed on the assembled train. This will verify continuity of the brake pipe through-out the full length of the train, and will test the remote idle down feature."
The idle down feature, mentioned by Proelec is probably for remote-controlled pushing locomotives. As I do not know, whether this is the case for the term in question, I looked also for more traditional translations and found tourner au ralenti (below)

Explanation: Your compressor will idle down and continue to idle once maximum pressure is acheived.
Votre compresseur se mettra au ralenti et continuera de tourner au ralenti une fois la pression maximale atteinte.
