German term or phrase: Befreiung
Es geht um Zugkontrolsysteme - Beispielsätze: Nachfolgend 500 Hz-Beeinflussung (nächster Punkt ist dann -)ohne vorhergehende "Befreiung" (nächster Punkt -) nach vorhergehender "Befreiung" // nach Befreiung aus der Zwangsbremsung

What is "Befreiung"? Am I right in thinking as simple as "release"??
