The iRobot Roomba Vacuum Model 760, combines the latest in robotic vacuum technology with the very best cleaning techniques.
The iRobot Roomba vacuum 760 is the simplest of the new 700 series home robots from iRobot. Being the simplest, it is also the least expensive of the premium class iRobot vacuums..
When we compare the 760 to the Roomba 770, we notice that the "Dirt Detect Series 2", that uses both optical and acoustic sensors to find dirt and debris, is not present. The older technology, "Dirt Detect", that uses just the acoustic sensors is used. However the "Persistent Path Cleaning Method" is employed.
Without these features the price does reduce.
This irobot vacuum may very well be the best robotic vacuum for you! it has the ability to navigate over carpet, rugs, hardwood floors, tile and linoleum. If you are a pet owner, then the superior performance of the 700series will definitely delight you and the 760 is the most cost effective Roomba available.
The AeroVac Series 2 bin uses a powerful vacuum to extract debris from the 3-brush system and evenly distributes it in the bin.
The dual Hepa filters can be seen as the yellow rectangles positioned on each side of the bin. They can capture dust particles as small as 0.3 microns and limit recirculation of fine particles, leaving fresher and healthier air behind.
The over all height of the iRobot Roomba vacuum is 3.6"(91.4mm), allowing it to pass under and of course vacuum under, beds and some furniture. The on-board sensors can find areas of excessive dirt and will then be programmed to pass back and forth, until the dirty patch is cleaned up.
The remote control unit can be used to turn the robotic vacuum cleaner on and off or to do spot cleaning. The iRobot vacuum can also be remotely steered by this unit.
The Auto Virtual Walls are used to close-off areas or other rooms, that you do not wish the robotic vacuum to go. Note that you do not need to position these units at the beginning of a set of stairs. Roomba 760 has "Cliff Detection" that senses the edge of a stairway and stops the unit, which then may traverse the step edge or reverse. This is just a part of the iAdapt Technology that monitors the home environment more than 60 times per second.
The Virtual walls send out an infrared beam that Roomba will not cross and as long as the unit is switched to "Auto" it does not have to be turned on or off. It is powered by 2 C-cells which should last at least 6 months, when in the "Auto" mode
Note that there are 2 Auto Virtual Walls included with the iRobot Roomba vacuum..
