German translation:pre-amendent max -> pre-amendment = Fassung vor der Revision
Explanation:
Zahlreiche "amendent"/"amendment"-Fundstellen deuten darauf hin, dass "amendent" jeweils durch "amendment" zu ersetzen ist, mithin stets ein Druckfehler vorliegt (1). Im vorliegenden Fall würde dann "pre-amendent" zu "pre-amendment", d. h. zu einem Terminus, der sich allgemein auf das, was vor der Änderung einer bestimmen Regulierung gültig war, bezieht. (Der auf die Zeit nach einer Revision verweisende Ausdruck heißt entsprechend "post-amendment".)

Wenn nun das zu übersetzende Fragment, wie vermutet, fehlerhaft ist und man amendment im juristischen Sinn interpretiert, dann liegen in Wirklichkeit zwei voneinander unabhängige Terme ("pre-amendment" und "max") vor, so dass auf Grund des Gerätekontextes mit "max" ein vor einer gewissen Revision zulässiger Maximalwert einer physikalischen Größe gemeint sein könnte (vgl. (2)).

Da es hier wahrscheinlich um ein medizinisches (ultraschallbasiertes) Messgerät geht (s. http://www.proz.com/kudoz/1994714), dürfte "pre-amend(m)ent max" sich auf die (510k)-FDA-Zulassungsbestimmungen (und deren Revisionen im Laufe der Zeit) für medizinische Geräte beziehen (3).

Anm.: Die mögliche Interpretation des amendent/amendment-Gebrauchs im Sinne einer Synonymie erscheint mir eher abwegig.
