German term or phrase: Polstrecke
In the context of multipole switching devices, a meanig for Polstrecke, please.
Obviously, 'pole path' suits, but I would like some explanation to have this make sense.
Many thanx,

Explanation:
This is quite difficult. I have a very good dictionary for electronics and elec. engineering from Siemens, but nothing in reference to Polstrecke. Pol itself denotes pole or terminal, whereas Strecke can mean distance, route (FWT, Datauebertragung), link(FWT, Datauebertragung), channel, line (graf. DV). As Nancy also said, an Internet search offered little. At ";www.google.com" search engine you get only one hit: Obwohl sich inzwischen die Lage einigermaßen zu bessern schien, war die Konkurrenz, FEDERAL EXPRESS, inzwischen so stark geworden, daß sie FTL fast erdrückte. Trotzdem konnte sie das Geschäftsjahr 1988 mit 117 Millionen Dollar Gewinn abschließen und sie eröffnete sogar noch eine Polstrecke von Europa nach Asien. Thus, I looked in two aeronatical dictionaries (only had anything with Polstrecke) and found: polar orbit, route. Without the overall context, it is really hard to give an "educated guess". But you might be able to come up with something. Good luck.

pole distance? pole line, wire / wiring, cabling?


Explanation:
It appears from my search that Polstrecke is NOT a usual word. Ernst does not have it, and Northern Light serach engine doesn't, either. In fact, the closest I could come to finding it was in the URL below. Strecke is here used in the sense of distance. So this is merely a suggestion that distance is the sense you may need. The quote is:

"Wenn man nur eine sehr kurze Strecke zwischen 2 Rechnern ueberbruecken will"

My advice: look up Strecke in a normal dictionary and see which definition fits your context. And know that there is no fixed word you have to look for.
