Features and characteristics of the model
This model came out a limited number of copies, as evidenced by the addition «Limited Collection» to the official name of the vacuum cleaner. According to the specifications, it resembles other previously released, and well-proven design 0926W.
Analysis of the main characteristics will allow the potential buyer to determine device capabilities for its case.
Vacuum cleaner Polaris PVCR 1126W is made of high-quality black coated plastic cover made of tempered glass.
Qualitatively made of soft plastic spring-loaded bumper has a small stroke. cleaner power enough to handle not only hard surfaces, but also carpets with medium and high pile length.
Gender-liter dust container contributes to the non-stop cleaning the apartment when it is a mild contamination.
Block wet cleaning hard surfaces comprises a container for water and a set of special microfibre cloth. Wetting occurs automatically, allowing the robot to operate in this mode for 30 minutes without addition of water to the tank.
Sweeping debris is sucked to the opening is carried out for all standard devices of this type side brushes and central turbo brush. It is equipped with a separate electric drive, which is activated simultaneously with the motor.
Included with the vacuum cleaner is further available in the following supplies:
- HEPA filter;
- special brush for cleaning the filters and the dust bag.
The robot is equipped with a sufficiently powerful sound indication of volume, however it should not be included when sleeping humans.
Features of the unit power supply
The robot is provided with a Li-Ion battery capacity of 2600 mAh. For this slightly powerful vacuum cleaner model, this battery enables long battery life.
Lithium ion batteries favorably with NiMH ability to save capacity over time. They are more expensive, but they do not necessarily limit the full discharge before charging procedure.
With long-term prime manufacturers recommend storing all types of batteries in a discharged state, but for lithium-ion devices, it is not so important.
Vacuums can be charged through the base, as well as directly. In the second case, the robot must be switched off - Switch «I / O» must be in «O» position.
Since the battery charger are standard parameters and, when the failure or aging can be carried substituted compatible devices from other manufacturers.
In order to allow the vacuum cleaner to automatically park on base for charging, it must be placed within the "line of sight" to the infrared sensor device.
For power savings provided "sleep mode", in which the device automatically switches to within 45 seconds of idle state if no button is pressed.
In this case the "hibernation" cleaner activation occurs when the timer is activated or when the user presses the button «Auto» on the body.
Modes and types of cleaning
If the vacuum cleaner allows you to dry and wet cleaning, first pick up dry debris, and then include a mode using water.
Choosing the path of movement for the two types of cleaning happens automatically - the electronics of the robot itself determines the optimal path option.
The first sign of the overflow container the dust is increased noise. Once the resistance to air flow increases, the protection circuit is triggered.
As a result, the robot stops and audible indication signal. To continue harvesting container must be cleaned or blocked mesh.
Start and stop premises cleaning cycle can be carried out as a push of a button on the robot body, and using the remote control.
All other settings can only be performed with the remote:
- Starting the timer. It is necessary to set the current time and the start of the daily operation of the device. For a start, the vacuum cleaner must be switched on, and the charging base is powered from the mains.
- Manual control vacuum cleaner traffic. Is performed using the arrow keys.
- Forced sending robot to the base for charging.
- Activation of local cleaning mode.
local area cleaning is performed under strong its contamination. The robot moves within the limits of one square meter in relation to its position along a spiral trajectory.
Terms of care robot
PVCR 1126W cleaning is carried out to ensure its normal functioning and maintaining a beautiful appearance.
Before the procedure the vacuum cleaner is switched off and disconnected from an external electricity. When wiping the base or charger, they must also be de-energized.
Wipe the metal parts of the vacuum cleaner must be dry and clean cloth. Plastic parts are treated with a damp cloth without the presence of the individual drops on it.
Infrared sensors with a clean soft cloth, when it is impossible to avoid physical pressure on them in order to avoid changing the direction of the beam.
Periodically viewing side brushes for damage or jammed solid objects. Defects that this detail will need to be replaced.
Otherwise, the marked deterioration in the quality of cleaning. The brush is wiped with a damp, well-wrung cloth.
In case of heavy contamination of the roller, it is necessary to remove. To do this, perform the following steps:
- pushing the tabs lock, remove the frame fixing roller;
- extract roller by lifting the right side of the part and pulling it to the right;
- contamination is removed, using a sharp knife or scissors;
- set the roller into place.
For tough dirt, which is difficult to remove in the home, it is best to contact the service center.
HEPA-filter washing followed by drying should be done 1-2 times a month, and it is recommended to change every six months.
Pros and cons of this model
When you select a specific model, it is usually compared with similar devices in the close price range. Analysis of other robots and user reviews have revealed both positive and negative vacuum PVCR 1126W.
advantages of the device
The majority of "classmates" model Polaris PVCR 1126W longer battery life is 1-1.5 hours.
The presence of capacious lithium-ion battery and a small rated power has made it possible to overcome the three-hour duration of the turn of continuous cleaning. This allows efficient use of the robot in larger rooms when not strong dustiness.
Low height allows the device to call for beds, wardrobes and other furniture on the legs, which no false wall. If you do not clutter the space, the robot removes dust accumulates there.
It is very convenient, since the use of an ordinary vacuum cleaner or mop to clean up such sites difficult.
Container of water leads to a lack of need to manually wet cloth after every 2-3 minutes, allowing you to leave the vacuum cleaner with a wet cleaning mode enabled unattended person.
According to user feedback, this model qualitatively cleaner removes debris of any type. Negligible nominal power offset competent central brush design. Also note the good permeability of the robot.
Stylish spectacular design of the vacuum cleaner is made in black tones and complemented by an insert made of tempered glass. Although the absence of other colors can be put in the negative.
The model PVCR 1126W is no system of "virtual wall" that limits cleaning zone, and there is no plan for the construction of the premises, which causes difficulty in the need to clean the room only.
Therefore, it is impossible to perform a wet cleaning of the territory, where there is a carpet cleaner because there sure will call. Such deficiencies are deprived of many of the models in this price range.
Some problem is the lack of display and automatic stop of the robot when the tank is empty. Work "dry" leads to a rapid wiping cloth microfiber.
Sold under the brand Polaris robotic vacuum cleaners have a relatively high noise level.
