Italian term or phrase: contatti secchi
I've never seen this particular combination of words. Here's the context:

Dotazione d’interfaccia batteria tampone, contro le interruzioni di rete, che consente di verificare le condizioni operative della rete elettrica e della batteria, sia da locale sia da remoto:

in funzione locale la verifica avviene tramite una segnalazione visiva a led sul frontale e contatti secchi su relè nel retro;

I understand this as "unswitched contacts". How does that sound?
