    Can anyone help with translating the following: -

    "La mesure GB-VE-2284 est à fond d'échelle lors de la
    synchronisation de l'alternateur sur le reseau"

    This is part of a report on a problem with a steam turbine installation

    Thanks in advance

    :) Welcome to the forum, Camuscat09.

    Échelle can be ladder or scale. Would scale make sense in your context?

    In this case I think it is scale, as in a measuring instrument.
