“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

Pulsar Celebrate World Record 100,000 Hours Installation

“World Record: LED Installation - Longest Continuous Service” Pulsar celebrated their second World Record 100,000 installation with an event for staff and key customers new and historic. The team at Pulsar, has over 700 years collective experience of product design, manufacturing and long term testing. This would not have been achieved without the great team behind the name – Pulsar. The ChromaStrip, which was designed for external use, have withstood all the elements can throw at them for more than 11 years. Demonstrating our ethos of reliability and longevity, the ChromaStrips have been continuously running ever since they were first switched on in 2004. Andrew Hilbert states: “Whilst the ‘headline’ is the longevity of the LED’s, it is the driver components that keep those LED’s operating. Each ChromaStrip2 has 30 LED’s and more than 40 driver components which have also operated for 100,000 hours. A luminaire is only as reliable as it’s least

Dave Cowan said “ We are so pleased to assist performing Arts students and alike and find this is a very fitting event for them to learn what can be achieved when using light, control and effect.
