German term or phrase:Polstift
Um ein gutes Messignal mit ein relativ hoeher Amplitude zu gewaehleisen, ist der Polstift in das Gehaeuse zurueckversetzt angeordnet. The sentence deals with a patent concerning an inductive sesor. What could polstift stand for?? or is that a typo??
Explanation: While "contact pin" and "pole pin" are fair bets, I agree with my esteemed colleagues above that without any better description (or even better a labelled illustration as is usually submitted with a patent) it is impossible to translate the term more accurately. Anything beyond the simple "pin" is simply a guess here.
