English term or phrase: count
Hola! Necesito ayuda con la palabra count en este contexto:

For an elevator system to be used for emergency evacuation a defined minimum Mission Availability (MA) has to be established before a MCF occurs. MA is determined from the period of use, allowing for down time for planned maintenance, planed repairs, breakdowns, level of redundancy and degradation as determined from the various ICE scenarios, Mission Availability can be stated as:
In determining the elevator MA, it is essential that the elevator is correctly defined, this is stated as the probability that an elevator will have a MCF during a Elevator Mission Profile (MP).
A MP consists of a ***count*** or event, which is made up of electrical, mechanical or combination of lectrical/mechanical activity. This can be summarised for an automatically controlled passenger elevator as; the activation of a call button – elevator control response such as (acceleration – braking – levelling – stopping – doors opening – doors closing), this can be expanded into the various elevator sub-systems which constitute and elevator *** count***, the next ***count*** will initiate the next elevator mission.

I think 'count' is being used incorrrectly in this context - maybe the result of chained translations. The 'event' described in the text is a 'series' or 'sequence' of sub-events.
