path measurement
Explanation:
'Odometry' is a reasonable translation , but it doesn't fit your context. Corenelsen gives 'Wegstrecke' = 'path' (as in the path travelled by a vehicle or object). In the context here, you could also say 'distance' or 'distance travelled' ['the value to be entered here designates the distance (in mm) required to attain the speed entered under Vmax, or in other words the maximum speed, ...']

odometry


Explanation:
Literally, it means odometry, but depending on the context, a less scientific term such as "measuring the travel of the [insert thing that travel here]" could be substituted.

Cheerio,
