German term or phrase: Schaltfahne
context: saw blade sharpening machine with robot
"Taste 'Automatik' drücken. Der Roboter liest jetzt die X-Positionen der Maschinen neu ein, d.h. die veränderte Schaltfahne vor der Maschine wird erkannt und es wird eine neue Position zum Einschwenken in die Maschine ermittelt."

Thanks in advance for any help.

English translation:signal contact arm/lever, actuator arm/lever, control arm/lever
Explanation:

signal contact arm

The following URL has Schaltfahne in five languages:

>>Schaltfahne … signal contact arm … levier de commande … leva mando
http://www.ms-armaturen.de/k110_4.htm

Es sei noch einmal darauf hingewiesen, daß beim Einbau der Platine besonders auf die Schaltfahnen der Positionsschalter geachtet werden muß. Der Schaltbolzen der CD-Schublade aus Kunststoff muß zwischen den beiden Schaltfahnen genau in der Mitte stehen. (Lade ca. 1 mm offen).
