French term or phrase: circuit détrompé
L’opérateur immobilier doit prendre toutes les mesures nécessaires pour lutter contre les perturbations électromagnétiques en respectant les distances entre courants forts et courants faibles, les cheminements des canalisations à forte variation d’intensité et les règles de protection contre la foudre.

De façon générale, un circuit banalisé est distinct du circuit détrompé.

filtered circuit

From the context, I suspect that this is a filtered (i.e. noise-free) circuit. To keep it that way, they want it run seperate from general purpose circuits and other potential noise generators.

"Noise" in the electrical sense here.

neutral  Tony M: certainly makes technical sense from the context as given... but a curious use of the FR term...?

neutral  chris collister: I wonder if they are making a distinction between a stabilised (détrompé) circuit and bog-standard (banalisé)?

foolproofed circuit

No real confidence, just an idea.

If a circuit is "foolproofed", one might imagine there is no way inappropriate equipment or supplies will be attached to it, so it will be protected from power surges, etc. and entirely safe and reliable.

A "banalisé" circuit on the other hand could be exposed to all kinds of misuse, and it might not be advisable to have it routed alongside a "foolproofed" and otherwise safe circuit in case power surges in the ordinary line caused inductive effects in the safe one. An idea anyway.
