Tech/Engineering
German term or phrase: acronyms: ELR, EMZ, APM
from the parts list for a heat treatment furnace:

...
4 Dreiphasen Transformator 20.000VA
4 Stromüberwachung für 3 Ph.-ELR
....
1 Einph. Steuertrafo 400/230V 1200 VA 50/60 Hz
1 Not-Aus-Relais
5 Tastelement + EMZ
1 Meldeleuchte
...
12 Heizeinsatz 5kW/42V
12 Mantelrohr für APM Heizpatrone
...

Any ideas about what these acronyms could stand for? I'm assuming the first two, ELR and EMZ, are electrical, but I don't know about APM.

Any input much appreciated.

Explanation:
ELR - elektronisches Lastrelais
Das Produktspektrum der elektronischen Lastrelais (ELR) mit den zugehörigen ...

Lastrelais n (Lastabwurfrelais)
load disconnecting relay, load shedding relay
[Siemens]

EMZ - Einlinienmeldezentrale
Was ist SKUNK ?
SKUNK - ist eine Reizstoffsprühanlage, die mit einer bereits vorhandenen Alarmanlage gekoppelt werden kann - oder, durch Verwendung der internen Einlinienmeldezentrale (EMZ), als eigenständiges System arbeitet (Sie benötigen dann nur einen weiteren Bewegungsmelder und ein Scharfschaltschloss.). SKUNK schützt Ihr Eigentum, indem es unbefugte Eindringlinge durch CS-Reizstoff sofort handlungsunfähig macht.

Siemens:
Meldezentrale f (Brandmeldungen)
(fire alarm) receiving station

Ernst Deutsch-Englisch : Einlinienzentrale f (Feuermeldg) / single-line fire alarm system

APM is the toughie.
APM - Advanced Power Management
is suggested by Acronym Finder (FU Berlin) and also by Brinkmann, Datentechnik.
Acronym finder also lists these two possibilities, however remote they may be:
APM - Atomic Parameter Matrix
APM - Attached Pressurized Module (a.k.a. Columbus)
And I left out all the ones that didn't make any sense within your context...

Siemens lists
Anflug-Mittelleistungsbefeuerung f (APM)
medium-intensity approach lighting (APM)
Again, I don't think that would be applicable for your purposes, but I thought I'd list it for completeness' sake.

No hits on APM +variations of Heizung/Heizpatrone, so this may remain a mystery.

Anyway, I hope the rest helps!

Thanks so much - again - for your well-researched answer. Both suggestions (for ELR and EMZ) make sense for this context. AMP I will leave as is and give the client something to do!
