Tech/Engineering - Engineering (general) / lighting
English term or phrase: tab
Hiya,
This is actually the first time I am using Proz, and I was wondering whether there was anybody out there who can possibly help me! I am working on a translation on lighting, recessed projectors, to be more precise. Now, my problem is I don't know how to translate "tab" in the phrase "Junction box with tab to facilitate cable insertion and electrical connections". Any suggestions please?

Many thanks,
Lisa
