German term or phrase: ELB-Gerät
The over pressurization of the panel is controlled by the ELB geräte. The ELB consists of a timer function preset to flush the panel for a certain amount of time before allowing the panel to be powered up. This means that the whole electrical panel is without electrical power until the timer of the ELB runs out.

The ELB controls a magnetic valve to flush with compressed air. When the timer has run out, the ELB will continue to add a small amount of air to the panel and to measure the slight over pressure inside the panel. If during operation this slight over pressure drops down, the ELB will automatically shut down the main power supply. Please refer to the picture of the ELB geräte shown in fig.
(In this fig. an instrument is shown with the only legible words on it: "Purge control unit". Is it the meaning of ELB?)

Please answer only in English. Thank you in advance!
