Tech/Engineering - Electronics / Elect Eng / Gas meter
English term or phrase: Tamper/Tampering
Hello,

I am not clear about the meaning of tamper/tampering in this context.

Here are a few phrases:

Input for tamper contact of gas meter
Tampering must last longer than one measurement period
Gas meter tampering

I do not understand if "tampering" refers to "manomissione" or to the verb "tamp" (comprimere). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Italian translation:esercitare pressione/comprimere
Explanation:
# A tool for firmly packing fresh espresso coffee into the filter basket held by the portafilter. The best tampers are hand held and not connected to the grinder.

# A pipe tool, which is used to press your tobacco into the bowl when you light up and as you smoke.

Ho trovato questi signoificati.... non sapendo cosa venga prima o dopo nel tuo testo, non sono sicuro affatto, ma posso immaginare che devi premere un qualcosa all'interno di qualcos'altro per effettuare un test.
Magari se chiedi a en-en loro ti sanno aiuatare di più.

Grazie mille. Mi hai dissipato un dubbio. Credo proprio che si tratti di "comprimere" e che non abbia niente a che fare con "manomettere". A buon rendere. Ciao, Domenica
