Italian term or phrase: microinterruttore
contesto: miscelatore (estrusione materie plastiche)
Frase originale =
La macchina è dotata *** di una protezione mobile con microinterruttore "A" *** (vedi figura sottostante) per evitare il contatto con l’organo in movimento(aspo); è responsabilità dell’operatore il danno eventuale derivante dalla sua asportazione .

preferisco avere la vs. opinione sulla parte tra *** (è giusta così o serve qualche modifica nella terminologia ? e "switch" in questo caso? ) =

The machine is equipped *** with a fixed protection with "A" switch *** (see Figure below) in order to prevent contact with moving parts (agitating paddle); the operator is responsible for any damage due to its removal.

grazie 1000.
