PULSE - BRAKING TECHNOLOGY
Richfield Bloomington Mitsubishi now offers installation of Pulse braking technology on all new car inventory and guests that come in for service!
Safer Braking Technology
Convenience, reliability and simple, elegant design are at the heart and soul of the Pulse Safer Braking Technology® and the years of engineering that have gone into its development. Your dealer simply installs the small Pulse module near the third brake light and the solid state electronics do the rest. No moving parts. Nothing to wear out. Just a simple idea whose time has come.
We Have You Covered
Pulse features an exclusive 5-year, unlimited mile product replacement warranty for manufacturing defects. If the product fails for any reason, we will replace it free of charge. Also, ask your dealer if they offer Pulse’s exclusive Limited Product Warranty that provides an additional $3,000 Total Loss Protection benefit in the unlikely event that Pulse fails to prevent you from a total loss in a rear-end collision.
In 2002, Daimler-Chrysler tested the benefits of a flashing brake light.1 From 2006 to 2010, the Department of Transportation (DOT) studied and published a series of reports on the effectiveness of a flashing third brake light showing that a flashing brake light improved the reaction time of the driver in a trailing vehicle by almost 50%.2 The same DOT studies showed that a distracted driver was 69% more likely to notice the car ahead of them slowing or stopping, if that car was equipped with a flashing third brake light. In short, study after study demonstrates the effectiveness of the Pulse safer braking technology in helping to prevent rear-end collisions.
Pulse is the only pulsing third brake light that meets regulatory requirements for use in all 50 states. Step on the brake pedal and Pulse goes to work pulsing, rather than flashing, the third brake light. What’s the difference? DOT regulations restrict flashing lights to emergency vehicles. Our award winning rear-end collision avoidance technology causes the third brake light to remain steady burning and within the acceptable range of specified minimum and maximum photometric thresholds, throughout the pulsing cycle. Pulse is proudly designed in the USA and each unit is hand-tested twice at the manufacturer before being shipped to the dealer.
