Hullo folks, me again. Another one from the glossary on air conditioners/ heat pumps/ etc. "Dispositivo limite attivo con incremento automatico del numero di giri dei ventilatori", no other context I'm afraid. How about "active limiting device"?
TVMIA.

active limiting device
Explanation:
Made some researches. I found many links related to heat pumps with "limiting device" and "active current limiting"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Current_limiting
http://search.babylon.com/?q=active limiting device &babsrc=...

From the technicl dictionary: dispositivo attivo=active device
limite=limit/limiting

I think that your solution could be a good one.
