Swedish term or phrase: utdragen
Not sure I understand how something can be "utdragen" (removed) IN something. Shouldn't this be "...fast utdragen från elrum..."? Maybe utdragen has another meaning.


Minuspolen finns även *fast utdragen i* elrum och i lokala skåp

Explanation:
I read this:"Minuspolen finns även fast
utdragen ..." as actually (by way of ellips) referring to the minus cable.
"Dra" can refer to all kinds of wiring,
cable plecements, routings etc.

Explanation:
