Dyson released the new “strongest in history” product, which can absorb viruses | Technology News TechNews

Dyson China released the strongest cordless vacuum cleaner to date on the 21st: G5 Detect (the model in other regions is V15 Detect), redefining “the strongest vacuum cleaner in history”.

How strong is the strongest suction?

What defines the strongest? For vacuum cleaners, this is the motor. The heart is the Dyson vacuum cleaner’s digital motor, and the heart is updated to the fifth generation, called the “G5 digital motor”. Flip the switch and you get up to 262AW of powerful suction. Compared to the previous generation, the suction power increases by 13%. That’s no small number, the motor spins up to 135,000 rpm, up to nine times faster than an F1 engine.

Of course, it’s not called Dyson if you’re only after “the best in the world”. Behind the efficiency is quality and experience. It’s not just the speed increases faster and the suction is stronger, but the new design also makes it smaller. The main shaft is 6 mm shorter, multiple parts are combined, and the motor system is more compact. Optimizing thermal conductive materials and turbulators allow the motor to spin faster and cool down faster. The battery life is also up to Dyson’s “longest time”: 70 minutes.

The first Dyson vacuum cleaner that can suck up viruses

Here’s why many people will want to buy it: The G5 Detect is the first vacuum cleaner proven to lock out the H1N1 virus. The H1N1 virus is one of the most common influenza A and influenza viruses in humans. When an infected person coughs or sneezes, it can be transmitted to others, and the virus can live on mobile phones, desktops, floors, etc. for a period of time. The new coronavirus and influenza virus are completely different viruses, the former is of the Coronaviridae family and the latter is of the Orthomyxoviridae family.

But being able to absorb and lock in the H1N1 virus has avoided many of the risks associated with the flu. Not only the H1N1 virus, it also locks down the MS2 virus. MS2 virus is also the smallest RNA virus that infects Escherichia coli and Enterobacteriaceae, among others. G5 Detection claims to capture 99.99% of particles as small as 0.1 micron, 99.9% of H1N1 and MS2 viruses.

The G5 Detect also features an upgraded fully sealed HEPA filtration system. 1.9m filter + 145 folds + 14 vortex cyclones = inhalation of virus particles, firmly locked in the machine to avoid leaks. Dyson has done something else innovative.

Don’t be lazy, Dyson told you to vacuum the floor

When you want to be lazy and not clean, do you always look at the room and say to yourself: It’s not that dirty. Dyson said: Wake up, you’re getting dirty.

This time, G5 Detect wants to let people see roughly how dirty the house is. From the same Dyson’s strongest “Fluffy Optic optical detection” technology, the upgraded soft velvet roller suction head can illuminate twice the invisible dust, and the range is extended to 30 cm, not only the dust is more “visible to the naked eye” when cleaning, but also visible further. G5 Detect also adds a more direct LCD screen, which shows the particle size 4 at once. The bar graph can see the change in particle concentration, and you can also see the dust statistics. You can immediately know the cleaning power and how many spaces to clean.

Dyson’s “Global Dust Research Report” this year shows that 52% of Chinese respondents will clean only when they see dust with the naked eye, which is 17% higher than last year. It seems everyone is used to “passive cleaning”. However, in the current environment, people’s health awareness is getting higher and higher, and it is more important to keep the home clean; Dyson’s style is to discover the problems people are ignoring and solve them in the ultimate way.

Dyson: I beat myself up

Everyone in the vacuuming world must want to beat Dyson, but Dyson only cares about how to beat himself. Before Dyson appeared, founder James Dyson was cleaning with the then famous Hoover vacuum cleaner one day in 1978 and he found a big problem:

As the number of uses increases, the air holes of the dust bag will be blocked by dust, making it difficult for air to enter, causing the vacuum cleaner to lose suction. So, the more you clean it, the less suction the vacuum cleaner has, and it’s very troublesome to change the dust bag all the time. And this is the best vacuum cleaner on the market!

No one makes a good product, he better make it himself!

So 31-year-old James Dyson spent 4 years, made 5,127 prototypes, and finally succeeded in making a prototype cyclone vacuum cleaner. Using centrifugal force, air and dust rotate at high speed in the cone chamber, dust particles fall by gravity, and the separated air can be easily released from above. Of course, this result is obtained after thousands of failures.

Later, the Dyson team invented the world’s first electronically controlled motor with a speed of up to 107,000 times, but the volume is only a few fingers. Now when you use Dyson vacuum cleaners to solve problems, you can understand why Dyson products are so expensive, but they still sell well.

James Dyson once said:

Like many people, we are often disappointed by products that don’t work. As design engineers, our mission is to continuously improve and innovate to solve life’s problems.

Dyson not only makes vacuum cleaners now, but also interesting products like hair dryers and bladeless electric fans, which cause conversation when they are launched. Seeing each new Dyson product, people may be attracted by the high price, unique design and status symbol, but what really wins over consumers is Dyson’s inexhaustible challenge and creativity.
