triggering

[′trig·ə·riŋ]
(electronics)
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).
This would allow facilities more flexibility to expand without triggering NSR.
One facility I know of claimed that its software was triggering 12 RAPs, but when the information was pulled together in the appropriate combinations, they were in fact triggering only six RAPs.
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.
1.1503-2(g)(2)(iii)(A), a (g)(2)(i) agreement provides that if there is a triggering event during the 15-year period following the year in which the DCL occurs (the certification period), the DCL must be recaptured in income, and there is an interest charge on the deferral.
In the improbable circumstance that both triggering events transpire, the financial consequences could be devastating to the insured.
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.
Instead, you generally need to choose the triggering conditions yourself based on experience.
