English term or phrase: Anchor span
Where the contact wire is of unregulated equipment and raised from the contact plane and anchored in a single span, the anchor height shall be fixed within limits decided on considerations indicated below. The maximum height shall be such that with the contact wire tension at its maximum, the contact wire of the anchor OHE does not leave the contact plane in the one where it is required to be in-running. The minimum height shall be such that with the contact wire tension as its minimum, there is no possibility of the contact wire sagging too much below the contact plane where it is out of running and getting entangled with the pantograph. In both cases, the anchor height is to be determined with respect to the ***anchor span*** if there is no crossing of the two contact wires, and with respect to the distance between the anchor mast and the point of crossing if there is crossing of the wires.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Span σε αυτή την περίπτωση είναι σίγουρα το άνοιγμα, το ξέρω κι από αλλού. Δες εδώ που το περιγράφει κάπως καλύτερα, αλλά και πάλι δεν είμαι σίγουρος πως να το πω: http://www.indianrailways.gov.in/FinanceCode/ACTraction-II-P-II/AcTractionIIAppendix1.htm
