EMAIL ADDRESS CORRECTION. PLEASE USE THE ADDRESS BELOW, NOT AS PER PREVIOUS SUBMISSION. APOLOGIES.
a document about earthing systems:
"Seules les electrodes X assurent:
une faible impedance sous energie frequentielle"
High frequency energy? low frequency energy? I suspect the former,but can't find an example of the same phrase on the 'net.

TIA

Explanation:
I can see why you're having trouble! Usually, when one is faced with such a "rare" usage, the best thing to do is go back to the client and ask what they meant by the term.

I can only come up with one item on the Net in French. Does your document have anything to do with earthing signal sending or receiving systems?

Here are the three I found in "English" (looks like they've been translated). Have a look and see if anything there fits the rest of your context; if so, it would seem that the term applies to the full range of frequential velocities, rather than to "high" or "low":

Checking through Termium, one of the translations of "fréquentiel" I found is "frequency-based." I just did a search with Google, and find 7 "frequency-based energy" entries at: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&safe=off&q="frequency-bas...

Here are a couple of those entries:

Thanks Yolanda,

You were right about it being related to earthing systems. In the end I have gone with a direct translation of "frequency energy" into Japanese. I will run it past the engineers when they come into the office. I'm gradually getting them trained to reverse-engineer my translation misses!

merci beaucoup

spectral energy


Explanation:
It means the density of energy spread along the spectrum (frequency) dimension. Except for a puse sine wave, most energy shapes have energy components that cover a wide frequency band. This is particularly true in the case of a strong and short pulse, the kind of perturbation an earthing system is meant to atenuate. Earthing electrodes must ensure that they offer a low impedance (i.e., an easy path) to earth through a wide frequency band, i.e. has to show a low impendance in terms of spectral energy

I think you have made a good choice.


Explanation:
I just did yet another Google search, this time for "frequency energy" + earthing + impedance, and the results (125) look appropriate to your case. Here is the Google URL:

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&safe=off&q="frequency ene...

I also ran a Google search for "frequency energy" + grounding [American for "earthing"] + impedance, and got 1,440 hits on that one. Again, the entries look quite relevant:
