Tech/Engineering - Electronics / Elect Eng / locking device for vehicle
German term or phrase: angenommen
Die elektronischen Bauteile umfassen auch einen Controller, der die eingehenden Ist-Daten mit den gespeicherten Datensätzen vergleicht und dabei im angenommenen Fall die Übereinstimmung feststellt. Es gelangt dann ein Signal an das Steuergerät, das dann über seine elektrische Verbindung das Schloss freischaltet, wenn noch weitere Bedingungen erfüllt sind.
Could anyone tell me what "angenommen" means and how it is expressed in English?

Many thanks
