Tech/Engineering - Metrology / force sensors -workability meter
French term or phrase: borne
Hello all,

I'm working on a file describing bitumen tests.

One test involves a workability meter. Below is the text (only text about this test):

"Mesure de la force qu’oppose un échantillon d’enrobé au déplacement d’une lame de poussée
mue par un vérin électromécanique piloté par un boîtier de commande
L’enregistrement de la **tension** aux bornes du conditionneur du capteur de force permet d’obtenir la courbe force-déplacement durant l’essai."

I'm not sure how to translate "tension" or "bornes" for a sensor.

Many thanks.
