English term or phrase:force guided contact
Context (copied and pasted from the source text. No, I don't know what that "a" is doing there either ;)): "The E-stop pushbuttons are a push-to-set, pull-to-reset, self-illuminating, and have two sets of force guided normally-open contacts."
This is the first time I see this term and I can't find it in any technical dictionary. Does anyone know how to translate this to Japanese? Google shows a very small number of hits for フォースガイド, but they all seem to be related (nomen omen) to relays. Can I just say フォースガイド接点(or even コンタクト), or is there a better term?
My guess is that these pushbottons have force guided relays inside.

Thank you very much!
Notes to answerer
Asker: A-ha! Now it's clear! I wasn't familiar with the term, so I thought "force guided" might mean something like "guided by [magnetic, electric, etc.] force", rather than "forcibly", like your translation suggests. Thank you so much for great reference links too!
