Dutch term or phrase: spanningsoverslag
'Vier systemen....vertoonden bij inspectie op printplaatniveau sporen van spanningsoverslag.'

Is spanningsoverslag the same as short circuit??

I would appreciate your help.

agree  Jack den Haan: Literally 'voltage flashover' but that would be almost tautologous. And no Danielle, 'spanningsoverslag' or flashover is not the same as a short circuit.

  -> Thanks, Jack!

agree  F Scott Ophof (X): But 'tension flashover' if one needs to differentiate between TYPES of flashover.
