Damping
Explanation:
Response time without damping of the switching element (relay), eg by means of suppression material. This appears to refer to switching of electric current, with some form of sacrificial coating on the contacts to shorten the extiction time of the arc, and therefore improve the response time of the relay. HTH, Iain.

Thanks very much! I'll have to check on spelling because it might be "Bedampfung" instead of "Bedämpfung"
