German term or phrase:Endlagenschalter/Endstellungen
The text is an operating manual for a water treatment system that uses UV radiation to disinfect the water. The system contains a wiper that keeps the tube containing the UV lamp clean.
"Die beiden Endlagenschalter dienen zur Steuerung des Wischmotors.
There is an Endlagenschalter at each end of the radiation chamber.
Bei vertauschten Anschlüssen der Endlagenschalter erkennt der Wischermotor seine Endstellungen nicht. Dies führt zum Ausfall des Wischers."
Any ideas on these two words?
Explanation: These are the obvious solutions, but I also checked them on the web:
Endlageschalter = limit switch; position indicator switch (EuroDicAutom)
Endstellung = end/final/ultimate position (tecnologix)
I also found the term "end plug unit" in one of the patents. Since patent terminology uses "broader" terms this would probable be "end switch". Maybe you can try to look up the patent for your specific product or check the site waternet.com? I don't know if this will help... Good luck!
