threshold value overrun
Explanation:
or
threshold value overcrossing
or range overflow

Grenzwert = threshold value
Überschreitung = overrun.
(Unterschreitung = underrun or undercrossing)

You could simplify by saying "range overflow", but a range means then that there is an upper and a lower limit. Both are not always specified.

These expressions can be used almost in all techniques as far as I know.
