French to English translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering - Electronics / Elect Eng / Process control
French term or phrase: relais relu
Describing a safety-critical control device:

"L'architecture du XYZ123 reprend des principes de sécurité tels que :
- le mono-processeur codé ;
- la sécurité intrinsèque ;
- l'architecture relais relu."

Not a combination I had come across. Usually occurs as "relais relu(s)", one or two refs. to "relecture des relais"; the doc does explain that if the "relecture" of a relay does not match the command issued, a fault condition is generated.

Is this as straightforward as "relay readback" or is there some other term?

I know these are strange translations... but it seems to me that reading them 'again' serves security as a safety measure. If so, maybe a somewhat srtande translation could clarify the intention the the reader?

Note: to 'verify' one needs to read it again and compare... so maybe it is not too far-fetched after all?
