Swedish term or phrase: utkoppla
Not sure I understand how something can be "utkopplad" (disconnected) TO something. Shouldn't this be "...fast utkopplad från elrum..."? Maybe utkopplas has another meaning?

Explanation:
Since "utkopplingslåda" is a junction box, it is referring to a connection outside a terminal (kopplingsplint), I think.
