From a performance description of a helicopter training simulator:

Folgende Resets müssen realisiert werden:
• Weather Reset: Alle Wettereffekte werden abgeschaltet Atmosphäre wird auf Standard ISA Atmosphäre mit 1013,2 mBar, 15°C auf Meereshöhe (Medium Sea Level, (MSL)), Sichtweite auf 12 km eingestellt.
• Global Malfunction Reset: Alle aktiven und vorgewählten Malfunctions werden abgeschaltet,
• Reset Steady CB: Alle als „steady trip“ *angewählten* Circuit Breaker (CB) werden zurückgesetzt und lassen sich mechanisch wieder eindrücken,

I have seen angewählt translated as "selected" or "dialled". Is either of these more appropriate in the above context or is there a third and better possibility?

Maybe "activated" as a kind of emergency training option.
