Spanish term or phrase:CAIDA in this sentence (welding, electricity)
Cuando se pulsa el paro de emergencia ACTUAMOS SOBRE LA BOBINA DE DISPARO DEL INTERRUPTOR AUTOMÁTICO PRINCIPAL (Q1) PROVOCANDO SU CAÍDA Y DEJANDO POR TANTO LA MÁQUINA SIN TENSIÓN (lámpara de línea H1 apagada).
the bit in capitals confuses me because I can't be sure whether 'caida' refers to 'a fall in tension' or 'the activation of the switch' ...
Also 'tensión' = 'voltage'?
