type of floor coverings can I use the robot on?
can be used on all common surfaces, such as carpets and
hard surfaces (tiles, parquetry, etc.). With respect to
extremely deep-piled carpets (> 3/4"), specific
restrictions apply. The moving sweeping edge is automatically
adjusted to different floor coverings.

to clean underneath pieces of furniture, such as beds, sofas,
How does the robot transport dust and dirt to the station?
The robot is equipped with a dirt receptacle that is
regularly emptied by the station.
How is the
dirt collected in the station? In the station, the dirt
is collected in a conventional filter bag (.5 gal). The
bag change intervals are flexible and are signaled to the
user in a timely manner by means of a device on the display.
will it be before the bag needs to be replaced?
on how much debris is present. The Robocleaner base station
has a 1/2 gallon capacity which is equivalent a most conventional
canister vacuums. Most conventional upright vacuums have
a capacity of roughly 2/3 to 1 gallon.
dirt can the robot pick up?
In case of
a normal degree of soiling, the dirt receptacle in the robot
is sufficient for one hour of cleaning. If this should not
be sufficient in the individual case, the robot simply returns
to the station earlier, disposes of the dirt and continues
the pick up of dirt in the robot performed?
The dirt is swept into the dirt receptacle of the robot
by means of vacuum-supported
Can the robot clean in the apartment / house / office
Yes, this is possible without any problems. The robot is
an autonomous system and does
not require any intervention. The dirt receptacle is emptied
at the station.
the cleaning duration?
You can set
the RC-3000 Robocleaner to run for 3,6,or 9 hours by pressing
a button in the base station. It can also be set to run
continuously. A Park button is also conveniently located
on the base station. When activated, this will stop operation
after the next charging cycle.
does it take until the robot is charged or operative?
time is between 15 and 60 minutes according to the charging
state of the battery before the charging. In case of the
initial operation, the robot certainly has the longest charging
speed does the robot move?
the robot runs at 7" per second. If it cleans very
dirty spots, the speed is reduced by half to intensify the
cleaning. The same applies to the final approach to the
station to allow the robot to precisely maneuver in.
How many square meters can the robot clean within one
can clean up to 160 sq. feet per hour. Many spots, in particular
the frequently used paths are cleaned repeatedly from different
the robot know when it must return to the station?
The robot returns to the station as soon as the battery
voltage has reached a specific level or if the dirt receptacle
How long does it take to empty the robot at the station?
The process takes approximately 30 seconds.
to which principle does the robot move?
The robot moves through the room according to the random
principle. If he bumps into an obstacle, it turns at any
angle and then goes straight until it bumps into the next
Which tools are present that help the robot to cope with
is equipped with sensors that detect stairs and prevent
the robot from falling down. Using a special carpet fringe
program the robot does not get stuck in carpet fringes.
Thanks to the different angles, it also finds it way out
of narrow corners.
What is the most efficient way to operate the robot (individual
rooms, entire floors)?
It is most
efficient to let the robot clean individual rooms, i.e.
station and robot are located within the same room. This
reduces the searching time during the return to the station,
the share of the effective cleaning time is, therefore,
the highest possible. If you want to clean entire floors,
the station should be placed at a central spot to enable
the robot to easily return to the station.
Are corners cleaned without any problems (the robot is
No, but due to the continuous cleaning, the collection of
dirt is substantially reduced. Thus, an accumulation of
dirt in corners is effectively avoided.
at stairs / steps (risk of falling down)?
robot works with optical sensors that detect half-landings
and signal the robot that it must change its direction.
Steps: The robot is able to deal with hard transitions up
to .3" and soft transitions up to .6 in both directions.
Can the furniture etc. be damaged?
of the items of furniture can be excluded. Please note,
however, the lightweight and fragile objects may be touched
and moved by the robot. Objects that are equipped with a
cable, may be pulled down from furniture (e. g. telephone)if
they catch on the robot. It is important to prepare the
room in such a manner that it is suitable for robots.
pets react to the robot?
As the RC
3000 is not noisy and does not work with ultrasound, problems
with pets are not to be expected. The self-movement behavior
only arises the mistrust of the pets in some cases.
What is important with respect to children?
should not be left unattended if children are playing in
the same room.
damages are likely if children sit on the robot while it
is in operation.
Why does the robot stop in some situations?
is only able to get out of tricky situations to a certain
degree. Piled cables can induce him into hopeless maneuver.
In this case the robot turns off automatically after a specific
period of time. The red signal on the robot lights up quickly.
The best solution is to place the robot on a free area and
turn it off and on again. Then, it continues its cleaning
run without problems.
