Neutral conductor, switched to off


Explanation:
Best I can come up with for you:

Tal dispositivo será mecánicamente solidario al interruptor principal produciendo la la apertura y cierre del neutro en forma retardada

Los fusibles e interruptores no deberán intercalarse en el conductor neutro de instalaciones polifásicas. Deberá existir, sin embargo, sólo en el interruptor principal, un dispositivo que permita seccionar el neutro.

Thus, the *cierre* would be the switching *off* of the *neutro*, an elision of *conductor neutro*. Iin English (from Termium): Conductors and Resistors Power Networks and Distrib. Stations (Elec.)

Explanation:
My guess:
It deals with 'neutral closing circuit' Using the 'cool' line (neutral), to switch [close and open] the circuit.
Luck!
