Pulsar status icons in Evoke

On the System tab, in the Clusters part of the System tree, Pulsars that are paired with a connected Beacon are displayed. Adjacent icons indicate the status of the Pulsars:  

The following table describes each of the Pulsar status icons that are displayed on the System tab in Evoke.

IconMeaning
Cyan Connected but not assigned a marker pattern
Yellow Connected but disabled 
Gray Image Modified
Automatically disabled as not linked to a Smart Object
Green Enabled and assigned a valid marker pattern
Red Disconnected
Yellow battery Battery has low charge (less than 20%)
Red battery Battery has very low charge (less than 10%)
Lightning bolt Plugged in for recharging
Update Evoke has queued or sent new settings to the Pulsar but has not yet received a response
No iconLoaded from a previous Evoke session but not yet connected to this instance of Evoke

Note that the overall system charge is determined by the device with the lowest charge (unless recharging – see the following note), which is shown at the top of the Clusters section on the System tab.

The number of devices on charge is also displayed here.

Info
Note
The information displayed by the Lowest Battery Charge indicator depends on the number of devices that are currently charging:
  • If some connected devices are currently charging, they are ignored, as they aren't at risk of running out of charge.
  • If all of the connected devices are recharging (indicated by a lightning bolt icon on the charge bar), they are included, so that you know when they are ready for use.


In the following image, the red battery icons to the right of the Pulsar names indicate that the batteries of the relevant Pulsars are low. The Lowest Battery Charge indicator shows that the Pulsar with the lowest charge is almost at 0%, ie, almost fully discharged (a Pulsar whose battery is fully discharged can no longer communicate with Evoke and disconnects, and the Lowest Battery Charge indicator then displays the Pulsar with the next lowest battery).

In the following image, the yellow lightning icons to the right of the Pulsar names indicate that the batteries of the relevant Pulsars are charging (and the yellow battery icons indicate that the charge is still low). The Lowest Battery Charge indicator shows that the Pulsar with the lowest charge is now at 13%.

Pulsar patterns

Note
Important
Under normal circumstances, the patterns for Pulsar active markers are automatically generated when you create Smart Objects and you don't need to change them. The following information is provided for troubleshooting purposes only.
