We’re recognised and trusted noise measurement experts – Since 1969.
We have a test area where the noise is occasionally above 84dB. As such, we need to warn staff and visitors alike before they enter the building of the potential danger. We looked at the PulsarSafeEar and thought it was ideal for our purpose. We decided to locate the master board at the entrance of our test bed.
The sign was easy to install and easy to set up. The PulsarSafeEar noise activated warning sign is benefitting the people who are operating and visiting this area, advising and warning them to the potential exposure to noise.
We are happy to recommend this product to other customers with similar noise measurement needs.
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.
I purchased my noise meter last year from Pulsar Instruments and has proven to be an excellent tool. As it was coming close to its first year anniversary, I received a reminder in the post that it would need its annual calibration check with more than sufficient notice. The instructions for returning my meter were very simple and it was duly sent away. My noise meter was returned very quickly and without any problems. Overall I cannot fault the service I have received from Pulsar.

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.
I would like to express my appreciation regarding the professionalism shown by both yourself and company regarding the recent delivery of our Nova Class 2 Premium noise measurement kit to our site in Hexham. From my initial enquire to Pulsar Instruments, I can confirm that the support and guidance provided by everyone has enabled the purchasing process to be completed in the most efficient way possible and is a credit to the company. I am now confident and assured that the equipment delivered is exactly what our requirements identified and also have the knowledge that the after sales support will provide the assistance if and when required. Thank you again for such an efficient commitment to the customer.
The instrument [Pulsar Nova] has been simple to use and so has the software. It’s taken a huge weight off my mind knowing that the staff haven’t been exposed to excessive levels.
I really appreciated Simon initially calling in with no obligation to hire or buy an instrument. He was so helpful that it wouldn’t have made sense not to choose your company. I was really worried I wouldn’t know what I was doing but Simon told me to give him a call when we are up and running. It put my mind at ease and gave me the confidence needed.
I’d certainly recommend it!

The Nova is a fantastic piece of equipment. It allows me to take quick readings and produce the relevant reports and make PPE comparisons easily. As well as saving me considerable time, the clear, real-time screen lets me show and explain to the staff the noise readings in their area as it happens. This is the best tool I have had in cultivating a positive attitude in the staff toward managing their own noise exposure and wearing the hearing protection correctly.
HARIBO, Health and Safety Advisor
As part of my MSc dissertation in critical care at Cardiff University, I aimed to reduce noise levels on an intensive care unit, to enhance sleep quality and reduce the incidence of delirium. A Pulsar SafeEar Noise Warning Sign was placed within each individual bed space, following the activation of the warning signs, quiet time noise reduced by 3 dBA and night time noise reduced by 4 dBA. This reduction in noise levels also reduced the incidence of delirium by 8.1% from the previous year. These results highlight the importance of these visual prompts to try and remind staff and visitors to reduce noise levels.
I had initial difficulties with the data loggers, which was resolved by a senior member of Pulsar driving over 6 hours to sort the problem…….embarrassingly caused our computer system!!!! The customer care we received from Pulsar was excellent, everybody in the team we spoke to was very professional and helpful and went way and beyond what was expected to resolve our initial ‘technical glitch’. Simon, the sales manager was also pivotal in helping me understand the logarithmic decibel scale.
I can not thank the team at Pulsar enough.

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.
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.
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.
Pulsar Model 22 noise dosebadge system is an all singing, all dancing system that is genuinely robust and does exactly as promised. I am happy to endorse this product for any environment where one would allow people to work.
