Detect vacuum cleaners: Dyson V15 Detect and V12 Detect Slim
The Dyson V15 Detect and V12 Detect Slim are designed to make invisible dust as small as 10 microns (= 0.01 mm) visible, with an acoustic piezo sensor that converts vibrations into electrical signals and accurately displays the size and number of particles picked up on the LCD -screen. The Dyson Hyperdymium motor generates up to 230 watts of suction power, with the V15 Detect Absolute producing even 240 watts of suction. In addition, it captures 99.99% of the dust particles up to 0.3 microns.
Dyson has developed laser dust technology to ensure the house has been thoroughly cleaned. According to the manufacturer, laser dust detection reveals the particles that are normally not visible with a precisely integrated laser. The engineers integrated a green laser diode – chosen for its ability to provide the best contrast – into the Slim Fluffy vacuum cleaner head, positioning it precisely at an angle of 1.5 degrees, 7.3mm above the ground. This means that hidden dust on the floor surface that is otherwise invisible to the naked eye can be seen and removed.
You can measure the dust detected and then display it on an LCD screen for real-time scientific evidence of a deep cleaning. An acoustic piezo sensor is integrated in the vacuum cleaner. Carbon fiber threads in the vacuum cleaner head pick up microscopic particles that are measured and counted up to 15,000 times per second. The dust enters the vacuum and hits the acoustic piezo sensor in the dust container, converting the small vibrations into electrical signals. The dust size and amount are displayed on the built-in LCD screen, so you can see how much dust the vacuum cleaner has removed, as well as the different particle sizes and provide scientific evidence of a thorough cleaning.
The vacuum cleaners are designed in such a way that they automatically increase the suction power when they encounter a large amount of dust. This happens in automatic mode, when the piezo sensor detects high concentrations of dust and the reactive suction power is activated to automatically increase the power. When the dust levels normalize, the suction power is returned to the previous level.
It can be difficult to get to fine, floating dust with your vacuum cleaner on the floor in the living room. Reaching under the couch you can hopefully catch that last bit of hidden dust. Traditional vacuum cleaners typically struggle to get to hard-to-reach areas and are inflexible to clean up the daily rush of obstacles at home.
The Omni-glide is the first Dyson vacuum cleaner designed with the omni-directional Fluffy vacuum cleaner head to glide in all directions: forward, backward and sideways. The Dyson Omni-glide is designed with an in-line format, with the separation system, motor, filter and handle all aligned so the machine can lie flat on the floor and clean in tight spaces, such as under a sofa or between furniture.
According to Dyson, the vacuum cleaner has no loss of suction power and spins up to 105,000 rpm. The proprietary five-stage filtration Dyson technology will also be retained. In addition, it traps 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns and expels cleaner air. The Dyson Omni-glide comes with four attachments – for cleaning above, below and in between. These attachments include a crevice tool with LED lights to show where you are cleaning, even in dark areas, a motorized mini brush to tackle hair and ground-in dirt, a worktop accessory and a combination accessory.
