French term or phrase: porte OU
electronic circuitry in instrumentation

I have no idea what the abbreviation "OU" means.

Eurodicautom was of no help.

La sèptieme bascule possède une entrée de déclenchement connecté à la sortie de la sixième bascule et une sortie reliée par l'entremise d'une porte OU à l'organe d'obturation associé au conduit 10.

Now it all makes sense (logically)! Many thanks indeed!

All of you were very helpful...too bad I cannot KudoZ you all! Werner was first on the scene, but I still needed that "gate" in the phraseology. I also very much appreciate the interesting sites to which you directed me.

Best regards,

Porte OU


Explanation:
Porte Ou is a denomination of an electronic circuit. The complement of OU- exclusive correspond to a detector of equality. All this terminology like OU - exclusive, OU-inclusive and Porte OU one can find in the studies related to artificial intelligence in the chapter of he laws of logics of computers.

I would say to live as it is "Porte OU".
