German term or phrase: Doppelschenkelbürste

Bei Kupplungen und Bremsen mit feststehendem Magnetkörper erfolgt die Stromversorgung über Steckverbindungen, Anschlußkästen oder durch eingegossene Kabel am Magnetkörper. Bei Kupplungen mit rotierendem Magnetkörper erfolgt die Zuleitung über Stromzuführungen auf gehärtete und geschliffene Schleifringe. Folgende Ausführungen sind zu unterscheiden: Die Köcherbürste und die ***Doppelschenkelbürste*** mit Kupfer-Graphit-Einsatz für Trockenlauf oder Bronze-Gewebe-Einsatz für Naßlauf.

Bei Trockenlauf genügt eine Stromzuführung je Schleifring. Bei Naßlauf kommt es vor, daß die Schleifringe zu viel Öl bekommen.

Caliper brush

"Bürste" = brush.
"Doppelschenkel" = calliper
There is no mention of a "holder".

Yes, "caliper brush holders" do exist. And their job is presumably to hold "caliper brushes".

Have a look at this 2011 posting on ProZ
requesting help on "Köcherbürsten- oder Kastenhaltern".
As discussed on that page, the splitting up of "Köcherbürstenhaltern" created potential for confusion. I wonder whether such confusion led to the subsequent† translation reported in Linguee.
This is an assumption. I cannot access the original PDF from to verify the date.

That confusion is also partly reflected in a 2012 discussion on italki
