• The Dyson digital motor V10 is smaller and lighter – yet has 20%2 more suction power than the Dyson V8 cord-free vacuum.
Dyson has unveiled the Dyson Cyclone V10 cord-free vacuum cleaner, which delivers more powerful suction than the typical "stick" vacuum.
Key is the new Dyson digital motor V10, which is almost half the weight of its predecessor, the Dyson digital motor V8. This is Dyson’s fastest and most power-dense digital vacuum motor – spinning at up to 125,000 rpm. Compared to Dyson’s first generation motor, the Dyson digital motor V2, the Dyson digital motor V10’s power to weight ratio has increased over three times.
Sir James Dyson, inventor, industrial designer and founder of Dyson said: "A strong performing machine starts with an efficient motor. The Dyson digital motor V10 is Dyson’s most advanced. It’s what enabled us to entirely change the format of a vacuum cleaner, to achieve Dyson’s best ever cord-free machine performance...It is the reason why I’ve stopped developing full-size vacuums."
The Dyson digital motor V10 is intelligent and continually adjusts to maintain maximum performance: it knows its altitude, the barometric pressure, temperature and could even work out the weather. It can even tell the difference between the table and the floor. It uses this information to make minute adjustments to deliver constant performance at different air pressures. It will give the same performance whether it is used in a high-altitude city - Kabul, Afghanistan is at 1807m, or a city at sea level such as Jakarta, Indonesia, elevation of 3m. Traditionally, vacuums work better at lower altitudes, where the air is denser than at higher altitudes.
According to Dyson other cyclonic vacuums can be relatively inefficient when separating dust and dirt from the airflow. Dust and dirt end up on the filter where airflow is choked, affecting suction strength. In contrast, the Dyson Cyclone V10 cord-free vacuum delivers constant suction performance3. Fourteen cyclones are precisely arranged around the central axis of the machine, enabling the airflow inside each cyclone to travel at up to 193kmh. This mechanism separates microscopic dust from the air efficiently.
Dyson says the typical vacuum cleaner can expel dust, allergens and bacteria into the air as it works. Dyson engineers have improved whole-machine filtration on the V10, capturing 99.97% of allergens as small as 0.3 microns4 – releasing cleaner air.
Energy storage system
Dyson engineers wanted to deliver enough power to the fast-spinning Dyson digital motor V10, while also extending the runtime. They engineered a more energy-dense battery, without any additional weight. Along with improved electronics and battery system management, it gives the new Dyson Cyclone V10 cord-free vacuum up to 60 minutes5 of suction.

cordless and versatile.
The direct-drive cleaner head has a powerful motor located inside the brush bar. This drives stiff nylon bristles deep into carpet pile to remove ground-in dirt. Soft antistatic carbon fibre filaments remove fine dust from hard floors.
The soft-roller cleaner head removes large debris and fine dust from hard floors simultaneously. A larger roller covered in soft woven nylon traps large debris, whilst anti-static carbon fibre filaments remove fine dust. A direct-drive motor sits within the roller, allowing fullwidth, edge to edge cleaning.
To manufacture this motor Dyson engineers developed new and fully-automated manufacturing processes at Dyson’s manufacturing plants in Singapore and the Philippines. Three hundred autonomous robots assemble the Dyson digital motors across six lines. Equipped with 3D vision, the robots can see and interpret what is happening in the production line and intelligently wire the motor in just 12 seconds, while also checking the quality.
