Pulsar Instruments made the decision to purchase one of their Nova Model 44 Class 2 test meters with data logging a very easy one indeed. The sales advice I received was truly excellent. You really felt that there was someone at the end of the telephone who understood our requirements and had the correct product to satisfy them. The Nova noise meter is a brilliantly engineered piece of equipment that is very easy to use and it interfaces superbly with the excellent data logging software.

I would highly recommend attendance at one of the training seminars that Pulsar arrange, the course has proved absolutely invaluable to me.

It is so good to find a great company that is so committed to its products and customers alike.

Following a claim we were defending, we were asked by our lawyers to supply noise measurement samples for a particular area in our factory. At this point, none of our managers were trained in noise assessment and it looked like we would have to pay out thousands of pounds to hire a consultant to give us all of the required information.

After attending the Safety & Health Expo in Birmingham, we decided to purchase the Pulsar Assessor kit at just over one thousand pounds and arranged for Pulsar to present a Noise Awareness training day at our site in Warrington. We carried out our own assessment the next day after the training, downloaded all of the details onto the database supplied with the equipment, which gave us the measurements over an 8 hour period in minutes, graphs explaining the different levels at given times and this helped us identify if there were any issues in the problem area and even the type of PPE we would have to issue.

The site then sent off all of this information to our lawyers who successfully defended the case saving the business in excess of seven thousand pounds.

From the initial telephone conversation to Pulsar where I spoke to the technical staff who were polite, professional, friendly, attentive and efficient in meeting the customer s requirements was impressive.

Sarah you have an extensive knowledge base of all Noise Metering equipment and were able to direct GTP Ltd to specific noise meters required for the business in a commercial and environmental capacity.

The follow up sales by yourself and Mike including the one day familiarisation course with the equipment was just superb. Your wealth of knowledge in the acoustic world, professionalism, commitment, passion and experience really did shine through. You demonstrated to me what a truly professional company Pulsar Instruments really are by supplying quality built precession instruments (which have been utilised in many trying conditions since). The after sales and technical advice supplied since has been invaluable.

Noise Awareness Course 2015

Excellent course delivered by a very knowledgeable tutor.  The course gave a really good understanding of workplace noise awareness - excellent course content.

E Sinclair Noise Awareness Course 2015, HSE Manager

I would like to express my gratitude to all at Pulsar Instruments Plc for kindly inviting me to attend the Noise Awareness Course held at Whipsnade Zoo recently. I found the course very informative, enjoyable and a good experience.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank your instructor Mr. Graham Ellicott for the professional and friendly manner in which he presented the course. I am sure all of the delegates including myself fully understood the course contents and its importance.

I very much appreciate your assistance.

Jonathan Edwards Noise Consultant

Attended the course at the National Space Centre in June 2015.  Very straightforward and to the point.  Good value for money!  Today has made me review the way I am going to conduct my noise assessments.  Advice was given on where to find more information and how to use my noise meter.

K Buglass H&S officer

I attended the Noise awareness course delivered by Pulsar Instruments in November this year at the Madejski Stadium in Reading. The course was very well presented in a calm and relaxed manner

K Lynch EHS Leader

I am writing to thank you for the kind invitation to the Noise Awareness Course which I attended yesterday at the RCNM in Manchester.

 It was very informative which now enables me to handle my noise measurement meter without it feeling alien. I feel that in one day I went from complete novice to someone who is capable of carrying out noise assessments.

 Can you please pass on my thanks to your team for making me feel very welcome and delivering a thoroughly enjoyable course.

Legrand Electric Limited

I have been most impressed with my dealings with Pulsar Instruments. From my very first call, where we discussed the merits of the various options you would be able to offer me, to the valuable insights you shared with me during your visit of my premises to understand exactly the nature of our business, and the specific challenges we face with regard to noise exposure in some of our processes. As a Manager with responsibility for the health and safety of my team, yet little experience in the noise monitoring field, finding and exploiting your knowledge and awareness has helped me to make a good choice for our business that will both keep my people safe, and ensure that the business remains compliant even as our processes and factory layouts evolve.

I am delighted that I am now able to make my own assessments with a piece of equipment that I can trust, and one that will be recognised by industry professionals. You know from our discussions, that I have placed a high priority on being able to ensure that any reports I generate are able to stand up to even the most intense scrutiny, the integrity of your device clearly delivers this level of probity.

I have been working my way through the software, and again I am finding it easy to understand and use despite my lack of experience. I particularly like being able to demonstrate that my instrument has been calibrated both before and after any monitoring period. Any reports saved directly as PDF’s cannot be challenged as having been corrupted either deliberately or accidentally.

I am very much looking forward to attending the one day Noise Awareness Training course, and I hope to bring some questions that will help me to really get the best out of my new investment.

Please convey my thanks to your staff for their efficient administration. I received the quotation I asked you for within an hour of you leaving for your long journey home, and I was kept fully briefed on progress, even providing a tracking number once the package had been despatched.

All in all, a first class effort from everyone at Pulsar Instruments.


I now have a greater knowledge of the usage of the noise measurement instruments and also of the Regulations

M Gilligan

A great overview of the Noise Regulations and practical solutions for monitoring noise.  A Superber day. Thank you

M Wilson

Excellent course and very well presented. I feel I have achieved what I came for

Setters Health Safety are a coaching culture and people performance training company based in North Wales.  Phil Ellis, Safety Coach contacted Pulsar Instruments recently looking to purchase a new noise meter kit. He opted for a Pulsar Nova Model 43 noise measurement kit with the data logging option and 1:1 Octave band analysis. Phil is delighted with his latest purchase and contacted Pulsar soon after receiving his order: 'The Nova meter is very easy to use, with more info than you can shake a stick at!   In addition, Phil was offered a place on the Pulsar Noise Awareness course to be held at the York Railway Museum in September..

WENAG village community noise-abatement group

WENAG is a village community noise-abatement group  - i.e. non-professionals in the noise-monitoring field.  We decided in 2012 that we needed the ability to gather noise data from a nearby motorcycle-racing circuit, which local residents were finding to be a nuisance.  The aim was to supplement the one-off measurements made by the district council, and by our own noise consultants, with a database covering a whole season of events, so that all those involved could have a clear and unambiguous overview of the facts.
We looked around at the options, took advice from the professionals we knew in the field, and decided to buy a new Pulsar 30 meter with acoustic calibrator and outdoor kit.  We then sent Jon Edwards, our designated technical manager, on Pulsar's one day training courses, so that he would know how to operate the meter, how to calibrate correctly, and how to comply with relevant operational and record-keeping requirements.
 We have now completed a full season, and are happy to report that the equipment performed flawlessly during the 16 sessions we ran, each of which covered around 8 hours of recording.  Pulsar's technical support could not be faulted: if a problem or query arose, we were always able to get through to someone who knew what they were talking about, both on hardware and software issues.  And when we found that certain extras were needed, they supplied them promptly and at reasonable prices.
 We now go into our next season with the confidence that we are both well equipped and strongly supported.  And we would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone else in our position.

ICTS (UK & Ireland)

Very comfortable and relaxed course. Small course numbers (class size) which was good. The One day Awareness Course was particularly useful in that it gave me a better understanding of noise regulations and how noise exposure is calculated. There were good examples given and useful information on how to use noise equipment.

Phil Linford ICTS (UK & Ireland), Regional Manager

Very good update and the opportunity to clarify noise assessment requirements. (Delegate on the York Noise Awareness Course in September 2015).

We purchased a Pulsar doseBadge and supporting instrumentation last year along with a familiarisation Noise Awareness training day.  The equipment is certainly robust, unobtrusive and ‘user friendly' and provides a real time analysis of workplace noise.

The noise measuring equipment and service furnished by Pulsar Instruments plc has proved to be first class and I would provide an unequivocal recommendation to anyone considering the introduction of this noise management hardware/software.  Some of the credit for the Company award of OHSAS 18001 accreditation last year must be directed at Pulsar due to the favourable observations made by the external auditor on the management of noise at work.

Thank you Sarah and Graham for your impartial guidance and advice and for providing a cost effective system which proves beyond any doubt that we can defend any allegations of poor workplace noise management.

Victoria Carpets Victoria Carpets
