German term or phrase: Geräteauflösung
"Die Höhe der Messzeit richtet sich nach dem Prüfvolumen und der Leckrate. Sie sollte mindestens so lange sein, dass bei einem Teil mit Grenzleckrate der Druckabfall dem 10-fachen Wert der Geräteauflösung entspricht."

Also, if anybody could explain what that second sentence actually means, I'd be most grateful.

TIA

Explanation:
It (the measurement time) should be chosen such that, if a component is at the borderline/threshold leakage value, the drop in pressure is equivalent to ten times the device resolution.

Would that make sense in your document?

Thanks Mary. I'm certainly not confident enough to put this into the glossary, though. Best, Steve
