German term or phrase:Schweranlauf
The text is about types of protection for electrical equipment in potentially explosive areas. Talking about "increased safety" as a type of protection:
Die Betriebsmittel müssen Angaben enthalten zu ihrem betriebsmäßigem Gebrauch, z.B. Nennspannung, Nennstromstärke, thermischer Grenzstrom, Schweranlauf order Einschränkungen, z.B. "nur zu verwenden in säuberen Räumen".
Can anyone tell me what is meant by 'Schweranlauf'?
