...processing unit


Explanation:
perhaps 'outside processing unit'?

Without having the full details in front of me, difficult to guess.

May I suggest contacting an electrical engineer or the reference library? Or the manufacturer of the unit.

do not translate or use "OVE certification"


Explanation:
the device was tested and certified by
ÖVE (Österreichischer Verband für Elektrotechnik)

see also other correct answers...

Since this is a national service mark relevant for Austria you should not alter or translate it if used in product description, on product etc.

OVE-Mark


Explanation:
OVE, TÜV and GS are all symbols used to demonstrate a level of safety testing - the use of these symbols garantees that the relevant body has tested the product in question and that it has passed safety tests. The equivalent in the UK would be a BS-kitemark, Im not sure if the american UL-sign is used for products as oppposed to materials (UL is generally a measure of flammabilty etc, the other tests go further).
