German term or phrase: flächig
context: design of post process controller for sorting of parts
"Es muß bei der mechanischenKonstruktion darauf geachtet werden, daß die Initiatoren die Teile sicher erkennen. D.h., die Initiatoren sollten flächig sein und einen relativ hohen Schaltbstand haben."
I also need help with Schaltabstand, but will post 2nd inquiry.
