In the measuring technology, a trigger designates a triggering event or an impulse.
In combination with pressure sensors in a mold e.g. start of injection is needed as a trigger signal. With this the pressure curve for one cycle will be recorded. Regarding quality control with IR-ThermalSystem the trigger signal will be given using a limit switch as soon as the mold is completely open.
