French term or phrase: (trou/diamètre) en lumière
A test report demonstrates that the seismic resistance of various electrical equipment (cabinets, circuit breakers etc.) is not compromised by minor alterations.

In one example, a hole in a contactor is investigated. This hole is said to be "diamètre 7.1 en lumière 7.1 x 11 de la pièce X". Would anyone know whether "en lumière" is seeking to describe the diameter (eg. internal/external) of the hole or perhaps its relative position?

The full context:
"L’objectif de ce document est de montrer que la modification du trou diamètre 7.1 en lumière 7.1 x 11 de la pièce
X, du contacteur Y, ne remet pas en cause la qualification sismique de la cellule Z"

Yes. slot is my preferred choice as the initial round hole is an aperture/opening.

Notes to answerer
Asker: So we are thinking "the modification of the hole with diameter 7.1 into an aperture/opening/slot measuring 7.1 x 11".
