ECOVACS ROBOTICS has done it again and with a revolutionary new DEEBOT X2 OMNI robotic vacuum cleaner. Square instead of round and more powerful than ever before, the DEEBOT X2 OMNI comes with an exciting range of advanced features and new innovations that redefine the design, performance and navigation of robotic vacuuming and mopping. Seen globally at IFA 2023 in Berlin last week, the DEEBOT X2 OMNI is available for pre-sale in Australia from today, ahead of its broader availability in stores from 21 September 2023.
The DEEBOT X2 OMNI boasts a brand-new design and innovations that set a new standard in home cleaning performance, as more than 100 ECOVACS patents come together in this new flagship. Its new square design is complemented by ECOVACS’ newly-developed Semi-Solid-State Lidar which is directly integrated into the main body of the robot for the first time, which means that it can deliver true edge-to-edge cleaning precision as well as a lower profile of just 9.5cm to reach every corner and hard-to-reach, low lying furniture which has previously been impossible to reach without manual intervention.
Its 8,000pa of suction is 60% more powerful than its predecessor, it has a 15mm auto-lift feature on its mopping pads, has a run time of more than two and a half hours, and it contains a raft of new and powerful ECOVACS proprietary AI and machine learning technology that sets a new industry standard. The more it cleans, the more experience it gains, refining its autonomous decisions and cleaning performance and recommending optimal cleaning solutions over time, including the best navigation strategy, more precise and flexible obstacle avoidance, faster response times and higher detection sensitivity.
Meanwhile, the all-in-one OMNI station, now with a smaller footprint than its predecessor, offers a fully automatic cleaning solution, washing its mopping pads with 55 °C hot water and then drying them with hot air. The dust container is also emptied automatically, and clean water is refilled into the robot, making the whole process of the DEEBOT X2 OMNI effortlessly simple.
“The DEEBOT X2 OMNI is a clear indication of our commitment to continuously push the boundaries of innovation to deliver a superior cleaning performance, advanced intelligence, and an immersive cleaning experience,” said Karen Powell, ECOVACS Regional Director for Australia and New Zealand.
“With today’s launch we have delivered the ultimate cleaning companion that truly simplifies home cleaning, making everyday cleaning intelligent, effortless, and effective. We have gone well beyond incremental improvements to set a new course for technological advancement and product innovation in the industry, and Australian consumers will be among the first in the world to be able to access these new technology breakthroughs.”
