Tech/Engineering - Electronics / Elect Eng / PROFIBUS DP
German term or phrase: mit Klemmen
Profibus DP mit Klemmen

I'm not sure what, precisely, "mit Klemmen" means when referring to PROFIBUS DP. Simply "with terminals" doesn't seem to work, but I can find at least two "official" options:

PROFIBUS DP with terminal connection

PROFIBUS-DP with terminal block module
http://tinyurl.com/Technical-Description-I-O-S500 (PDF)

Unfortunately, my "document" provides no way of seeing what is meant, as it is just the text, without any graphics to refer to.

Explanation:
It seems impossible to choose between these from the limited context, so I would go with the most general and add a note.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks, that was what I felt too, but unfortunately I can't add notes within the document either, as it's a TagEditor file.

Asker: Thanks for pointing that out, Languageman!


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Languageman: Sounds reasonable to me. You can easily add comments in a TagEditor file (right click->Comments), but if that doesn't suit then surely you can simply write a query to your customer pointing out the ambiguity and requesting clarification?
