By controlling the trigger pulse, TCSC can transform the trigger angle of thyristor.
The trigger pulse duration ti must be at least one cycle period (= 1/measuring rate).
According to Jones, the trigger pulse duration must be equal to at least one cycle period, so with a slower measurement rate, the trigger pulse duration must be extended.
It has an ergonomically designed rubberized grip and a trigger pulse always ON lock switch.
The sampling synchronization technology that merging unit receives second pulse and DSS receives trigger pulse is introduced for example.
This is a consequence of the fact that only the rising edge of the received pulse is that stops the measurement of the time interval between the trigger pulse and the received pulse.
In contrast, the new device produces photons in response to an external trigger pulse, which is essential for many applications.
In the triggered mode, an external negative going trigger pulse is used to command the receiver to process one or more raw data samples depending upon the specified averaging.
A third laser (cw HeNe) is employed to interrogate the water surface and generate a trigger pulse when the proper geometry for measurement exists.
The measurement lasts for at least 10 ms once the trigger pulse begins.
When the heart fails to beat in a timely manner, an implanted pacemaker senses the absence of the millivolt pulse in the electrical field of the heart and issues a trigger pulse to start a beat.
The high sampling rate allows the shape and frequency content of individual trigger pulses to be revealed, while fully synchronous sampling supports consistent interchannel timing measurements with subnanosecond precision.
