Tech/Engineering / Binary counters
German term or phrase: Vorsetzen
Definition of binary counter inputs:
"Anschlußregelung:-
CT = 0; L-Pegel –Zähler Reset H-Pegel – Zähler aktiv
2+/G1: Takt für Vorwärtszähler
1-/G2: Takt für Rückwärtszähler
3D: Eingänge für Vorsetzen
C3: L-Pegel – Übernahme der an 3D anliegenden Info.
1CT = 15: Inhalt 15 = L
2CT = 0: Inhalt 0 = L
"
The rest is fairly clear, but "Vorsetzen"?

Explanation:
My impression is that it's Vor-setzen, a pre-set counter value which may be activated by C3. Not uncommon for a counter. Somewhat akward use of the German term, but then, Anschlussregelung isn't exactly what a native German would (should) have written.
