catenary control
Explanation:
Hi Heather,
Good to see I'm not the only one working on a Sunday evening. ; ) Laixicon doesn't have precisely what you're looking for, but it does have "Durchhangregelung" which I would gather is similar if not the same. There it is translated very credibly as "catenary control". As always, I hope this helps. Will

Explanation:
Siemens, Fachwörterbuch Energie- und Automatisierungstechnik: Durchhang = sag, slack. Durchhang aufholen (Papiermaschine) take up slack. Don't know if this will work for your context, but I hope it helps a bit.
