German term or phrase: Schaltabstand
I'm afraid I've got another difficult one - Elektrotechnik, with itemised lists, so little context.

operating or sensing distance/switching interval
Explanation:
For a proximity switch (NS), Siemens lists the following:
Schaltabstand m (NS)
operating distance, sensing distance

And for a time switch or clock relay:
Schaltabstand m (Schaltuhr)
switching interval

Both Ernst and Budig are silent on the subject, but maybe you can scare up enough context to decide if one of these terms will work for you.
