I don’t immediately see any way to get that functionality without reprogramming or external hardware, but it would be reasonably straightforward to do it with reprogramming.  As it is, additional triggers do not reset the timing, but are ignored or (if the option is selected) cancel the trigger.

The issue with the voltage regulator is not that it isn’t rated for the voltage, it’s that it drops too much power.  If you have 24 V in, 5 V out, at 100 mA, that’s 19 V * 0.125 A (max), or 2.375 W of power– more than the PCB can dissipate. You can get around this by adding a big enough heat sink, or moving the regulator off board, and heat sinking it to the metal chassis of one of your instruments.
