The Massachusetts-based company iRobot has always tried to develop such robots that can take acre of daily chores and make our lives easy. Such a job is pool cleaning, and iRobot has made a user-friendly and powerful pool cleaning robot to handle it. iRobot will unveil the pool cleaning robot Mirra 530 at the CES 2013.
Mirra 530 pool cleaning robot is more powerful than Verro 300 HydroJet,an earlier pool cleaning robot of iRobot. Mirra 530 has a sleeker design comes with huge PVA wheels. This robot is designed for use in in-ground pools. Mirra 530 features one motor to drive the robot and another to pump and filter the water. It has an iAdapt Nautiq Responsive Cleaning Technology for which it can automatically figure out the size of the pool to determine which cleaning program is the most efficient.
Mirra 530 doesn’t require hoses or booster pumps. Rather it uses a 60 feet (18.3 meter) long power cord that can be floated on water. This pool-cleaning robot can go through up to 70 gallons (265 liters) of water per minute and filter out all pesky junk from the pool, including leaves, hair, dirt and other tiny things that human eyes can’t see, such as algae, pollen, and bacteria. Here’s a video of Mirra 530 at work.
Features of Mirra 530
- Dual top-load filter canisters for easier and faster emptying of debris.
- Modern styling and aesthetic.
- iAdapt Nautiq allows the robot to size up the approximate dimensions of the pool – then choose the optimum cleaning cycle for maximum efficiency.
- Provides the most thorough cleaning by making multiple passes over the entire inside of the pool, floor to waterline, including walls and stairs.
- Constantly responds to its environment by navigating obstacles, changing directions when necessary and making sure not to tangle its 60-foot floating power cord.
- Self-contained vacuum, pump and filter system works without suction lines or other modifications to existing systems.
- Pumps and filters 70 gallons of pool water per minute.
- Reduces heated hot spots and keeps chlorinated water evenly distributed.
- PVC active scrubbing brush lifts dirt, algae and bacteria off the pool floor and walls, including the water line where oils and bacteria can build up. Fine filters capture debris as tiny as two microns.
The Mirra 530 pool cleaning robot will be available in North America and Europe in the spring and will cost $1,299.99 (€1,499 in Europe).
