German term or phrase: Max.-Deckelseite/Verstellung seite
This is from a motor assembly speicifcation document: There may also be a "Min." If I find an example of "Min" I'll add it. "Typenschildausrichtung: H1B- Typenschilder sollen so ausgerichtet sein, dass sie von der Max.-Deckelseite des Standard-Endgehäuses aus lesbar sind.
Bei den 2 Punkt-Endgehäusen ist das Typenschild aus Richtung der Verstellung lesbar."

broad side / long edge of the cover

The cover is presumably rectangular (or at least roughly rectangular) and thus has two broad/long sides or edges and two narrow/short sides or edges.

Notes to answerer
Asker: The first reference is good, this is motor assembly, so the others are at least not in this field. I'm still confused about Max, and also Min is in the text when it refers to the Verstellung Seite, any idea?

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Kcda: Maybe they are trying to say - maximum dimensions of and abbreviated it as Max. (maximal/er). So possibly it could be this way: maximum dimensions of the broad side/cover. The context makes my assumptions not fool proof nor infallible! :)
