Italian term or phrase: macchina a pallet per le sonde
Hi, I think that macchina a pallet is a skid loading machine, but what does it mean in the context. I can provide no further information as this is from a very brief work report.

In mattinata abbiamo montato il versionamento della macchina a pallet per le sonde ed effettuato i cablaggi dei nuovi sensori. Abbiamo realizzato la modifica del software e dato indicazioni su come montare le attrezzature sul robot

pellet burner (CHP) for the sensors

I think this is a question of a spelling mistake with "pallet" and instead it should be "pellet".

This would now make sense as a "macchina a pellet" is a pellet burner, which is a combined heat and power engine, producing electricity in an efficient manner.

It is referred to in Italian here:

The same pellet burner is referred to here in english:

"Le sonde" in this case are the sensors and so presumably the versioning of the pellet burner is for the sensors. This makes sense also due to "cablaggi".

In this case "sonde" are sensors: see proz open glossary

Does this make sense Vincent?

Example sentence(s):
  • "non sono necessari particolari termostati a bracciale o sonde, ne pompe cosiddette "di ricircolo/destratificazione" normalmente usate per caldaie a legna;"
  • "Sunmachine e' una macchina a pellet in grado cioe' di produrre sia energia elettrica che energia termica."
