PTC thermistor tripping unit / PTC thermistor evaluator
Explanation:
From Siemens, FWB industrielle Elektrotechnik, Energie- und Automatisierungstechnik:

Kaltleiter m
PTC thermistor (PTC = positive temperature coefficient)

Auswertegerät n
evaluator n, analyzing unit

Auslösegerät n (für Thermistorschutz)
control unit, tripping unit

The following sites would seem to support this as well:
PTC thermistor tripping unit. Setpoint control with the SOFU setpoint function card. Units ...
www.dematic.com/products/komponenten/regel-e.html

The thermistor lead pairs are marked TM1, TM2, and TM3. The Siemens standard controller is a 3UN tripping unit control module, which has an N.O. and an N.C. contact.

Thanks to both of you for helping on this one. I consulted an electrical engineer on this, who disagreed with the PTC part of the answer for Kaltleiter (he said that's a Warmleiter), but I decided to go with the Siemens entry and make an appropriate note for the client. At any rate, the client (who is the engineer on the project) was very satisfied, and that's what counts! Thanks again to both of you.
