The combination method RF+TM+TaL allows the concurrent application of the three methods RF, TM and TaL (see also the individual descriptions of the methods). For long-term data recording the methods RF and/or TaL are usually applied, since they provide maximum data on the stress of the measured object while minimising memory space. However, any information of the signal shape is lost by applying those two methods. Especially, in the event of load peaks the frequent request is raised for detailed information of the time-load progression. In such cases the trigger function of TM is used to individually define a threshold for each channel for recording the time series. The pre- and post-trigger function of TM enables additional records of the direct history prior to the triggered sequence and the decay subsequent to the triggered sequence.
