Dyson has revealed its latest cordless vacuum, the Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean, which uses laster technology to sense, remove, size, and count microscopic dust.
The Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean is engineered to detect hidden dust and is equipped with a patented acoustic piezo sensor to enable scientific proof of what’s been sucked up. Developed by a team of 370 engineers globally, the Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean uses a Dyson Hyperdymium motor to generate up to 230 air watts of suction and five-stage filtration to capture 99.99% of dust down to 0.3 microns in Boost mode for a deep clean.
The Dyson Omni-glide vacuum, meanwhile, delivers a new way to clean hard floors. Engineered for daily cleaning in city homes, the flexible cordless vacuum helps get into the difficult nooks and crannies. Its omnidirectional Fluffy cleaner head has been engineered to glide in all directions. An in-line format aligns the separation system, motor, filter and handle, to enable the machine to lie flat to the floor and clean in tight spaces.
LaserDust Detection reveals the particles you cannot normally see with a precisely angled laser integrated into the cleaner head. The ideacame about when a Dyson Engineer noticed that airborne particles in their home glistened in the sun. They began to research how they could take this notion and apply it to the fine dust we cannot see in our home. The team experimented with laser lights in the lab to test how this could be achieved.
Dyson engineers integrated a green laser diode, chosen for its ability to provide the best contrast, into the Slim Fluffy cleaner head, positioning it precisely at a 1.5-degree angle, 7.2mm off the ground. It means hidden dust on the floor surface that is otherwise invisible to the naked eye can be seen and removed.
You can measure the dust it detects and then displays it on an LCD screen for real time scientific proof of a deep clean. An acoustic piezo sensor has been integrated into the vacuum. Carbon fibre filaments in the cleaner head pickup microscopic particles which are sized and counted 15,000 times a second. The dust enters the vacuum and hits the acoustic piezo sensor within the bin inlet with the tiny vibrations being converted to electrical signals–the most accurate way to measure microscopic particles, says Dyson. The dust size and quantity are shown on the in-built LCD so you can see how much dust the vacuum has removed, as well as the different sizes of particles.
The vacuum has been designed so that it automatically increases suction power when it comes across a large amount of dust. This happens in auto mode, when the piezo sensor detects high concentrations of dust, and reactive suction power is triggered to automatically increase in power. When dust levels normalize, suction power is reduced to its previous level.
The Dyson Omni-glide features the first omnidirectional Fluffy cleaner head that floats on four 360° stabilizing castors, which allow it to move effortlessly in all directions and into tight spaces. The castors’ height and placement were engineered to ensure minimal resistance, whether rolling forwards, backwards, or sideways. Sealed ball bearings also allow for a smooth change of direction and minimise build-up of dirt.
The straight, slim bin has an ejection mechanism with a rotary catch to drive out dust in one smooth action. A silicone collar wipes down the mesh shroud to drive out dust without dirtying your hands. The vacuum has a power button instead of the classic trigger, meaning you can swap hands while navigating obstacles, making cleaning that much easier. To remove dust build-up, you can wash the bin, filter, brush bar, and any tools without electronic components. The removable, fade-free, energy-dense battery enables up to 20 minutes run time. Swapping the battery has been made easy with the click-in structure where owners can remove and replace at the press of a button. The wall dock, meanwhile, enables users to lean the machine into the recharging dock, ready for your next clean.
Dyson Engineers also looked to solve the problem of removing hair on the brush bar. The new anti-tangle conical brush bar spirals hair off and into the bin. This prevents the wrapping of hair around the brush bar, without compromising pick-up performance, says Dyson. Designed for human and pet hair, engineers delicately tweaked the precise angle of the bristles on the tool, to ensure the release force did not tangle the hair and tested the tool on multiple hair types.
Dyson’s V15 Detect High Torque cleaner head now has 56 polycarbonate teeth which looks like a comb. These small teeth prevent tangling around the bristles when you are cleaning, and automatically clears hair from the brush bar.
Both the Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean and Dyson Omni-glide feature Dyson’s advanced filtration technologies. Dyson cyclone technology is efficient at separating dust and dirt from floors and surfaces and whole machine sealing means this isn’t leaked back into your homes.
The Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean and Dyson Omni-glide are available starting June 8. The Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean is priced at $950 and the Dyson Omni-glide is priced at $500.
