Explanation: Since Endgerät = terminal, my suggestion is "Terminal selection code (or number)". See Ferretti: WB der Elektronik, Datentechnik und der Telekommunikation for the first part, anyhow. HTH Wolfgang

Explanation: "Endgeräte" are usually the different devices connected to a PBX (Br. PABX),
a private (automatic) branch exchange.
The Auswahlziffer would then be a one-digit numeric code used to distinguish between different devices.
How you put that together in a sentence depends on what the German sentence looks like (it would have been helpful to have had more context). It is often acceptable to leave out some of the information contained in the highly descriptive German compounds, especially when they are repeated.
