Watch the English version in post #2... From what I gathered, it's "pulse" relates to the filter in that it constantly measures the suction in the canister and "pulses" the filter to clear it as it works to maintain the suction... and that when changing the bag, you can also "pulse" out any left-overs to clear the filter for the next run...

It basically vibrates the filter clean. There is a reason Starmix makes the best portable construction vacs on the market. Still I think Pulse-Bac has the best automatic filter cleaning mechanism because it actually blows air backwards through the filter.
