The electric motor marketed as the Dyson Digital Motor DDM is a direct current motor, operating on the switched reluctance principle. These brushless motors rotate at up to , rpm. In order to deal with the high speed and centrifugal forces , the impeller is made of carbon fibre reinforced polymer ; the shaft is steel.
The first mass-produced version was named "X" and used in the Airblade hand dryer; the later DDM "V2" was used for Dyson handheld vacuum cleaners. Most of the current range use "2 Tier Radial cyclones", consisting of two cascaded levels of cyclonic separators to remove dirt and dust without requiring a bag or filter. All versions are identified by a name such as "DC14". Some have submodels identified by a suffix indicating specific facilities, implemented sometimes by additional tools supplied.
Suffixes with the same meaning vary from model to model. Other suffixes sometimes used indicate exclusivity to certain stores, e. These machines feature a different range of tools to the usual "Multifloor" and "Animal" versions and also appear in different colours.
All these are coloured a combination of purple, red and yellow. For these models, the yellow parts found on the mainstream models were replaced with light blue ones, and on the DC02 Antarctic Solo the body was also recoloured in white instead of silver. There are two distinct models of the V10 with differing motors, filter assemblies and bin sizes. The V10 with larger bin gives Run times are extended up to 60 minutes for speed setting 1 The machine will run for 5 minutes in MAX speed Airwatts setting, 20 minutes in the second speed 33 Airwatts setting with the motorised large powerhead, and 30 minutes in the lowest speed A smaller version of the V10 with a V8 sized bin was released with a different motor with a maximum airwattage of and smaller combined filter assembly.
Like the V8, it has a wall mounting unit which it can be charged in, and charge time from empty is 3. It comes with the same type of large motorised powerheads as the V8, consisting of the direct drive motorhead, and the "fluffy" hard floor motorised head. The DC07 had a new W motor that provided Airwatts, making it about the most powerful model that Dyson made, and also the noisiest in use, with much of the operating noise coming from the upwards mounted cyclone assembly.
The DC07 had a long production run from until , and came in many different colour combinations. During the DC07 production run, in , Dyson switched all manufacturing of its vacuum cleaners from Malmesbury, UK to a new factory in Malaysia. The DC15 is a complex machine compared to earlier upright models, and is the first Dyson upright with an independent motorised brushroll, controlled by a switch next to the main power switch. The main suction motor is housed inside the "ball". Due to its high launch price, its weight 8.
The second change with the DC17 upright is the brushroll design. A separate motor drives the brushroll, unlike the DC07 and DC14, which use power from the main motor via clutches. This made the DC17 the most effective of Dyson cleaners on carpeting. The third change is a new colour scheme for the DC17, and also the Dyson DC16 Root 6 Handheld; the bright colours and silver tones are toned down in favour of shiny metallic accents and titanium as the main colour for the entire machine.
The level 3 root cyclone system on the DC17 was quietly redesigned due to a gasket defect that allowed dirt to enter the cyclones backwards, clogging them and causing the cleaner to lose suction; almost all of the original DC17s had this problem. The redesigned cyclone pack, fitted to later DC17s, resolved this issue. Older DC17s were not recalled, but Dyson gave out and sold many of the redesigned cyclone packs.
The ball design has been simplified for the DC rather than riding on a large ball that encloses the primary motor, the DC18 rides on a thin, cigar-shaped roller that provides more space for separate motor enclosure and airway paths. The plastic wand pole has been criticised as a lowering of quality from the older metal type, and also causes the main spine of the cleaner to flex more, without the support of the metal wand [ citation needed ].
This unit has been discontinued as of July No replacement model has been announced. None of the DC08 models had electric motorised floorheads. Like the DC07, the DC08 was fitted with an uprated motor giving it more suction power, handled by the new root 12 cyclone system the DC08 was equipped with. This higher power output could drive the main turbo floorhead without the need for an electric motor and the expensive wiring that the DC05 motorhead had.
Lower models in the DC08 range did not come with the turbine floorhead, having only the standard floorheads which were better-suited to hard flooring than carpets. Unlike the DC02, the DC08 did not have storage for its small tools in the body of the cleaner. As with the DC05, tools were stored on a small caddy attached to the suction hose.
The DC08 had a long production run; it was upgraded to the DC08 Telescope wrap after the launch of the DC11, to enable it to be stored more efficiently, and was eventually superseded by the DC Early in the production run of the DC08, in , Dyson switched production of all its vacuum cleaners from Malmesbury, UK to a new production facility in Malaysia.
It had two separate dust bins and cyclone assemblies to make the machine smaller when it was packed away. It was the replacement of the DC08, and to all intents and purposes is virtually the same in appearance and design as the DC Also available in an Issey Miyake limited edition in which the manifold on the cyclone assembly is pink instead of the standard yellow, and an Animal version with a motorised brushbar for picking up pet hair and gold cyclone manifold.
Newest to the range is the DC16 Car and Boat which is designed for car and boat cleaning, supplied with a car 12 V charger and has a blue cyclone manifold. The first Dyson Airblade, launched in , is a hand dryer for commercial customers, typically made available in public hand-washing facilities. The Dyson "Air Multiplier" was announced on 18 October as an electric fan , intended to provide smoother airflow and, having no exposed rotating blades, thus operating in a safer manner than conventional bladed fans.
The fan works by drawing air in through an inlet in the base pillar and forcing it through an outlet in the upper ring. Dyson stated that the initially-generated air flow is multiplied between 15 and 18 times for the models AM01, AM02 and AM03, projecting a smooth stream of uninterrupted air, without the buffeting effect caused by conventional fan blades.
Since the original release, Dyson has produced combination electrical heater and cooling fans some with HEPA filters based on its Air Multiplier design. In addition, some newer designs feature "Jet Focus", the ability to shift between a wider and shallower or a narrower but farther-reaching stream of air, under user control. A more-limited set of control switches is available on the body of the appliance. The design for a bladeless fan had been patented by Toshiba in , but was never marketed before the patent expired.
An initial patent claim by Dyson was rejected by the Intellectual Property Office, ruling that it "cannot be considered novel or cannot be considered to involve an inventive step" compared to the earlier patent. Like most fan heaters, it has a thermostat to control the temperature, and can also be used as a cooling fan without heat.
All AM04 models made prior to 1 April are subject to a no-charge product recall for repairs because of a fire risk. It uses "Ultraviolet Cleanse" technology to clean water by running it through ultraviolet light twice before it is released. A piezoelectric transducer in the base vibrates up to 1. It uses the same Air Multiplier technology to blow air, as well as a 0. Along with a coarse filter to trap slow particles, the unit uses low-force velocity to trap fine particles within the filter as well.
As of [update] , Dyson has discontinued its basic cooling fans in favour of an extended range of combination fan air purifiers, some with optional heating. High-end models feature automatic monitoring of indoor air quality for particulates and volatile organic compound VOC contamination, and reporting over Bluetooth or WiFi to a smartphone app. The discontinued Dyson CR01 Contrarotator is a washing machine with two counter-rotating drums, the first of its type.
Each drum had 5, spin perforations to help evacuate water. The machine was first available in November The company later stopped making washing machines the same year, as they were unprofitable for the company. In April , Dyson introduced the "Supersonic" handheld hair dryer. A Dyson Digital Motor V9 is housed in the handle. In March , Dyson announced a cordless hair straightener called the "Corrale". In , Dyson released the "Lightcycle", featuring the same heat pipe technology as the previous CSYS lights, but with Bluetooth connectivity via the Dyson Link app, and the ability to adjust the intensity and colour temperature to both the individual and their surroundings.

The vacuum features an updated root cyclone and a redesigned brush roll with more power than the DC41 and a better edge cleaning system.
Dyson has undergone a name change to their models, and this appears to be the same base design as the new UP13 model marketed as the "Dyson Ball Allergy". The Dyson Small Ball replaces the DC50 small upright in , after the introduction of the EU directive on mains powered vacuum cleaners.
It is very similar to the DC50, but with refinements to the motor performance, and also a change to the handle wand, in which it became a metal wand as on the DC24 to address issues with excessive flexing of the all plastic handle on the DC The powerhead has 3 levels of suction attained by a slider switch which opens and closes various valves and gates on the powerhead.
It is rated at W and 80db, in compliance with the EU regulations for mains powered vacuum cleaners. The Light Ball also has a longer reach cable than the DC40 and differing tools with the "quick release" red button system. Models designated "2" incorporate updates and improvements on the original model. European models will also be compliant with the EU regulations for mains powered vacuum cleaners.
DC63 is a small ball vacuum. The Dyson Big Ball CY23 is an alternative version of the Cinetic Big Ball cylinder, but without the cinetic technology and incorporating a pre-motor filter. Almost identical in appearance to the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball cylinder model. Image of a Dyson V6 with an attached-mini motorized head.
For specific markets e. Powered by the Dyson digital motor V6. This power-dense motor uses digital pulse technology and a neodymium magnet to spin at up to , rotations per minute. Its small size means that the machines it powers can also be small, light and powerful. The Dyson brand, as well as various reviews, claim that the V6 can have up to a minute run time. The V6 develops 28 Airwatts of suction in its extended runtime mode, and Airwatts of suction in its MAX mode, but runtime on a full charge in MAX mode is limited to 6 minutes.
The V7 Trigger omits the long canister from the V7 cordless stick model but is otherwise the same. If you already have an upright vacuum and only need a handheld, say for the couch, you can save money with this model. The star of the Ball Animal 2 is a powered, tangle-resistant attachment that uses counter-rotating brush heads to dig pet hair and fur out of thick carpets.
It also comes with two typical attachments—a long, narrow one and a wide scrubber for general use around the house. Certain sub-models of the V7, such as the Animal and Allergy, advertise that they filter Other sub-models include the Absolute, Fluffy, and Motorhead, which differ mostly with the attachments included. As Dyson introduces new models, it fades out the older ones, and the V7 is ostensibly next on the chopping block.
The Cinetic Big Ball upright is just too expensive for what you get. None of these are bad vacuums. You can just buy better vacuums for the same price or similar-performing vacuums for much less. Each one has a different number of included tool attachments and accessories. Every model V7, V8, V10, V11, etc. Absolute is usually the king-of-the-hill version with the most attachments.
Outsize V11s have a percent-larger head to sweep more floor area on each pass and a dust bin percent larger than non-Outsize V11s. Allergy used to mean that it came with an upgraded filter that traps Mostly a holdover from the V7 days.
Dyson has found other names for basic sub-models.
