Schrittkette = step chain


Explanation:
Schrittkette = step chain

This is from a Siemens text too. Some sort of "manual turn" thing-a-ma-jig. You could have a look at the two texts in German and English to see if sounds like your device.

The elements are displayed true to scale on the screen in the form of a symbol chain and optionally as graphics. Representation s a step chain is also possible. This guarantees a clear overview even with large programs.

Die Elemente werden als Symbolkette und wahlweise als Grafik maßstabsgetreu auf dem Bildschirm angezeigt. Weiterhin ist eine Darstellung als Schrittkette möglich. Dies garantiert die Übersichtlichkeit auch bei größeren Programmen.
