 German term or phrase: ÄU=300 mV Spannungshub nach Herstellervorgabe, ansonsten min. ÄU=300 mV (measuring equipment for automotive vehicles)
 Local time: 19:43
 increase in voltage Explanation:the word 'Spannungshub' clearly says, that an increase according to a manufacturer specification or 300mV min. is meant. Those letters assigned to a value may be chosen freely. So, it is very likely, that Ä is chosen to indicate Änderung=change in this case

1 hr   confidence:
Abbreviation or sign for "Spannung" is U

Explanation:
"Spannung" is potential in English.
The unit of potential is volt; V in both English and German.
So what does the umlaut a stand for?
Is it "Aenderung"? Giving then Aenderungsspannung

Change potential = ....?
Alternate potential = ... ?
Fluctuation potential
Given that the umlaut A is capitalized, Aenderungis a good bet.
Good luck to you!

Explanation:
I forgot to mention this.
Thus, you could speak of change voltage, etc. instead of change potential

I was an electronics technician for several years, but I certainly don't know it all.

Ausgangsspannung

Explanation:
Looks suspiciously like the common AU, if this is possible.

voltage difference

Explanation:
I slept on it and this what came to me:
We speak of delta V which is a difference in voltage. The sign for this is a little triangle followed by the V. The Germans use this too so I was thrown off because it isn't used here.
Nevertheless, voltage difference (an increase or decrease) could be the answer.
