Wine Tasting in a New Light

A new way to experience wine   Pulsar are proud to have helped once again with the annual E-luminate festival in Cambridge. Taking place at the popular Hotel du Vin restaurant, the E-luminate wine tasting event is a uniquely colourful experience. Visitors sample different wines, each with a complimentary lighting scheme. Pulsar’s Snowy Johnson programmed the fixtures for the event. The lights are configured remotely via RDM and using a Pharos system to intelligently pick or play back preset looks. Our Luxeos 18 floodlights provided illumination for the event, complete with version 2.0 electronics… More information on that coming soon! The E-Luminate festival is packed with fantastic installations and events and takes place until the 14th February. To find out more about the festival and the events taking place over the next few days, follow the link

2017 Wrapped Up

An exciting and eventful year for Pulsar   As you all know, we've been very busy at Pulsar over the last 12 months. Between developing new products and working on some very exciting projects, we somehow found the time to move to a new building on the other side of Cambridge! With this in mind, we thought we'd have a look back at a couple of our favourite moments of 2017. Celebrating the best of the UK lighting industry, the Lux Awards proved to be one of the highlights of the last couple of months for Pulsar. Read more about it from the link below. http://pulsarlight.com/pulsar-highly-commended-lux-awards/   A New Beginning   Spring saw one of the biggest changes in the history of Pulsar. After over a decade at our old premises, we moved to a new factory on the other side of Cambridge. As part of the move we started to focus on the production and development of our new luminaires, coinciding with our change to Luxeos Luminaires

Pulsar Highly Commended at Lux Awards

Lux Awards Intercontinental Hotel – O2 Arena – London   On the 16th November, we attended the Lux Awards at the stunning Intercontinental hotel, at the O2 Arena, London. Having been nominated for our work at Elgin Bridge in Scotland, we are honoured to have been ‘highly commended’ by the panel of judges at this year’s Lux Awards. The awards ceremony brought together lighting designers, manufacturers and intermediaries from across the UK, celebrating the best products and projects from across the United Kingdom. With the bridge having been a target of vandalism, Pulsar worked with the local authorities and installers to make the installation at Elgin Bridge a success. Key to the success was the recycling of damaged luminaires and repainted vandalised housings, using extra tough materials. This made the project a perfect fit for the ‘recycling’ category of the Lux Awards. Click here to read more about the project. We were bowled over by the sheer

Pulsar Nominated in Lux Awards 2017

Lux Awards We are proud to announce that we have been nominated for a Lux Award, for our work on refurbishing luminaires for Landshut Bridge in Elgin, Scotland. The prestigious Lux Awards take place at the annual Lux Live event in London on the 16th of November. The awards celebrate the very best new products and projects. They also reward innovation and thinking outside the box.     Landshut Bridge - Elgin   Landshut Bridge is an iconic feature of the town of Elgin. Mark Trainor Hayes of Audio Northwest specified Pulsar fixtures, for the reliability of the iconic ChromaRange. However, the Landshut Bridge was plunged into darkness recently due to a series of “mindless” acts of vandalism. Graffiti and damage to the electrical system and fixtures meant that something had to be done. The local authority, concerned that this may happen again, asked Pulsar to create a custom vandal proof solution. Pulsar identified a protective material for the

Seef Mall, Bahrain

Seef Mall – Sees the Light

Seef Mall was Bahrain's first mega-mall - opening in 1997 and quickly becoming the go-to place for locals and expats who were keen to experience the variety of international stores the mall had the pleasure of enticing to make their debuts in the country. Today, it still remains one of the most family-friendly shopping and entertainment destinations in the Kingdom of Bahrain. Ideally located in the Seef district, the mall expresses itself with distinctive architecture and bright open spaces, inviting visitors to explore all that is on offer in the 135,000 sqm venue. The mall caters for every need, with a classic selection of stores ranging from budget to high end, including 2 food courts incorporating numerous restaurants and cafe’s, health & beauty stores and 2 separate cinemas - because one cinema is just not enough. Working closely with one of our partners in the region - Elames Lighting BSC in Bahrain, Pulsar was selected to supply external lighting to illuminate the

Pulsar Launch Luxeos to the World!

Our day in London at the world-renowned Science Museum began early as the team arrived to install the fantastic new Luxeos range of fixtures ready to unveil to the world. With the Luxeos product family consisting of the Luxeos9, Luxeos18 and Luxeos36 flood lights in both variable colour options and variable white options along with the our very latest addition, the Luxeos Linear at 500+ lumens/300mm with a CRI of 90+ available in 300mm, 600mm, 900mm and 1200mm flicker free lengths, there was a lot see. To make the event even more exciting we collaborated with mycoocoon who were kind enough to bring a mycoocoon pod used in conjunction with reflexology and special treatments against tiredness, stress and other things related to modern life. Pharos also demonstrated their award winning intelligent lighting control solution which was associated with the @pulsarlightuk twitter account enabling anyone, anywhere to change the colour of the lighting at the event.

“It’s magical”

Pulsar were proud to support a local village community, who transformed a corner of the woods and an old railway hut into Santa's Grotto, providing something to remember for all who attended. “It’s magical!” said a little girl (unprompted) as she gazed up at me with shining eyes and a happy smile. And indeed it was magical. The night was dry (and not too cold), as families and friends arrived from all directions to await Santa’s arrival, heralded by the switching on of the lights. The Glow Trail stretched invitingly through the woodland. The Christmas Tree with its hundreds of twinkling bright white lights contrasted with a backdrop of trees in ever changing colours. Peace doves fluttered in the trees. Gifts on a stall glittered brightly in the lights. Log fires glowed in the darkness. And at the centre, Santa’s Grotto, lit with a warm. welcoming glow, while inside, beautiful Christmassy decorations decked the walls. A queue of excited children quickly formed to visit

Campaign for Fair Warranties: The fight continues

Campaign for Fair Warranties: Pulsar's M.D. reading our - No Nonsense Warranty! at Lux Live 2016. In the special panel discussion, manufacturers, customers and the team from Lux’s Campaign for Fair Warranties to assess the state of customer protection in the lighting industry. Speaker(s): Brian Pohl of Pulsar Light, David Mooney of Atkins, Gordon Routledge of Lux, Mark O'Connor of Saturn LED, Michael Schrempp of Munich RE LED manufacturers sometimes make bold lifespan claims about their products and the reliability of these claims often rests on the quality of the luminaire. Warranties should protect consumers from poor product performance, but in the lighting industry warranties are not always fair and can be misleading. In some cases warranties dramatically overstate the likely lifespan of their products. A ten-year warranty, for example, does not take into account the complications of long-term LED operation and wouldn’t be offered by a reliable company. Sometimes
