English term or phrase: latch or latching
The context is bar code entcoding. I know, "latch" or "latching" is translated as "einklinken", but does that really fit in this context. One sentence reads "...to latch from EXC to binary code..." and others "...submode latching or shifting".
Thanks a lot for your help !

Explanation:
...von EXC auf Binary code umstellen...

I have seen the word "latch" in German, however, used in an electronics context. So you might not choose to translate. If you do, however, above is my suggestion.
