Phenomenon observed in some high-performance magnetic amplifiers with very low leakage rectifiers; as the input current is decreased in magnitude, the amplifier remains at cutoff for some time, and the output then suddenly shoots upward.

Whether triggering is hardware- or software-based is yet another factor that makes a big difference.
The "start point" of the external signal is a crucial aspect of triggering the sensor and has different forms dependent on what's being measured, whether it's distance, position or displacement.
Triggering is therefore often initiated by an external signal.
Under the current regulations, triggering events include:
Make sure the valuation provisions don't provide an incentive for them to cause a triggering event and be bought out (see "Warning: Don't Give Shareholders an Incentive to Sell," page 38).
When used in combination with the DECOMSYS::BUSDOCTOR 2 protocol analyzer, Agilent's FlexRay option for the 6000 Series mixed signal oscilloscopes offers a robust set of FlexRay frame, slot and error triggering, including the ability to trigger on specific FlexRay communications qualified on base-cycle and cycle-repetition.
Analog triggering today includes types such as slew rate, pulse width, edge, and runt that are implemented by combinations of analog comparators operating on a copy of the input signal.
Triggering events: The proposed regulations generally retain the triggering-event rules contained in current Kegs.
To achieve such rapid triggering, Back and his coworkers tapped a well-established phenomenon that enabled their brief magnetic-field pulse to induce lingering effects.
Under the new plan, if any person acquires beneficial ownership of 15 percent or more of USG's voting stock, shareholders other than the 15 percent triggering shareholder will have the right to purchase additional shares of USG common stock at half their market price, thereby diluting the triggering shareholder.
Instead, you generally need to choose the triggering conditions yourself based on experience.
Most buy-sell agreements are activated on the occurrence of a triggering event, such as a voluntary sale, shareholder bankruptcy, divorce, death or disability, irresolvable shareholder disagreement or shareholder retirement.
