German term or phrase: Hilfs-/Steuerleiteranschluß
sorry, no context - from an assembly parts list:
"Hilfs-/Steuerleiteranschluß WZAD 120 (Weidmüller)"
Many thanks for any help.

English translation:Connection for auxiliary/control lead (or circuit)
Explanation:
I basically agree with Decker above, except that, as Leipzig points out, 'Leiter' doesn't mean head, but 'lead' or 'circuit' or 'wire'. 'Anschluss' is vague enough that I would use a very generic term like 'connector'.
Hope this helps!

Explanation:
According to Siemens again, I can only recommend, Steuerleiter is control wire, pilot wire, or pilot; Steuerleiterklemme: control-circuit terminal, pilot-wire terminal. As for Hilfsleiter: auxiliary conductor, pilot wire, control-circuit conductor.

Hope I helped some!
