Dyson has taken the wraps off its latest and most intelligent cord-free vacuum, the V11, with an on-board LCD screen that shows the selected power mode and remaining run time, as well as reminds users when to clean the filters and notifies of any blockages.
The cord-free vacuum will be available in three variants – the Dyson V11 Torque Drive (RRP $1,099), the Dyson V11 Absolute (RRP $1,199) with an extra cleaner head for delicate hard floors and an exclusive model to Dyson.com.au, the Dyson V11 Absolute Pro (RRP $1,249) also with an extra cleaner head and other tools for total home cleaning. The vacuums will be available from retail stores from early April.
The Dyson V11 vacuum cleaner has three microprocessors that monitor performance up to 8,000 times a second. One microprocessor is located in the dynamic load sensor (DLS) inside the cleaner head, one in the digital motor and one in the battery.
The DLS system, unique to the high torque cleaner head, intelligently detects brush bar resistance up to 360 times a second and automatically communicates with the motor and battery’s microprocessors to change the suction power between carpets and hard floors.
There are three cleaning modes which can be easily adjusted – auto mode for the optimum balance of power and runtime, boost mode for intensive cleaning of ground-in dirt and eco mode for longer cleans on all floor types of up to 60 minutes thanks to Dyson’s most powerful battery pack.
In the new Dyson digital motor V11, which spins at up to 125,000rpm, a triple diffuser is used for increased suction of up to 20%. The first two diffusers straighten airflow and reduce turbulence, helping to increase suction, while the third diffuser further reduces noise and improves acoustics. The impeller has redesigned blades that are longer and thinner, increasing the efficiency of air movement.
Dyson founder and CEO, James Dyson said, “We have been developing vacuums for over 25 years. The evolution never stops. With the Dyson V11 cord-free vacuum, our focus was not only on improving performance, but on adding intelligence to genuinely assist people’s cleaning.”
