Tech/Engineering - Computers: Hardware / Product description programming device
German term or phrase: Nullkraft-Fassung
Appears in the following sentence :

" Programmiergeräten in seiner (Preis)Klasse, benötigt LabTool-48 deshalb
weder heute noch in Zukunft sogenannte Programmier-Adapter für Bauteile
im DIL (Dual InLine) - Gehäuse, also solche die ja eigentlich direkt in die
vorhandene Nullkraft-Fassung der Geräte eingesteckt werden können."

Does anyone have any ideas? I need surces aswell please. Thank you all in advance :)
