Hobot 188 can be used in many ways
This window cleaning machine cleans all glass surfaces, such as windows, glass doors, mirrors, shower cubicles. However it can also be used to clean walls, tiles, floors or tables.
Even different surfaces within the same area can be cleaned without interruption, because it can automatically adjust its pressure to the surface being cleaned. The maximum cleaning area should not be greater than 6 metres high and 5 metres wide.
A strong vacuum ensures firm grip and cleanliness
Two clever cleaning wheels replace an inflexible chassis and allow the Smartbot Hobot 188 window cleaning robot to move freely over glass surfaces. Two eco-friendly microfibre pads do the cleaning. A strong centrifugal pump produces strong negative pressure that ensures a firm grip on vertical surfaces and vacuums up the dust.
Reusable microfibre pads for clean surfaces
The microfibre pads can be washed at up to 40 °C and are easily fixed onto the cleaning wheels. An elastic band ensures a firm fit and easy handling when changing the pads.
During the cleaning process a strong negative pressure vacuums up the dust, which sticks to the microfibre cloth. Even when the pad becomes dirty, long and soft fibres protect the glass from scratches.
Note: Please only use Hobot microfibre pads by to ensure brilliant glass cleaning.
A firm grip, thanks to safety features
The strong vacuum motor ensures a firm grip on smooth glass surfaces. In case there's a power failure, an integrated Lithium polymer battery will prevent the window cleaning machine from falling down. Furthermore, the device can be fitted with a safety rope (tensile force: 159 kg).
Fully automatic cleaning and remote control
The robot has three automatic cleaning programs for clean windows without any streaks. After finishing the cleaning program the robot stops automatically. You can also navigate the Hobot via remote control.
Artificial intelligence supports automatic window cleaning
The window cleaning robot is equipped with artificial intelligence (AI technology). Thanks to several sensors it is able to detect the window frame and then calculate an intelligent cleaning route. This ensures that the whole glass surface is thoroughly cleaned .
