For over 50 years the company Vileda represented on the German market with its household products. There is hardly a German household where not a mop or a floor cleaner Vileda performs its services. Vileda has therefore to score as traditional brand with a very high penetration rate prima opportunities, even when the cleaning robots.
Since 2013 there is the robotic vacuum Vileda 142861 Relax robotic vacuum . Those who value a possible easy to use device that meets the basic performance requirements of a vacuum cleaner and in addition also is still excellent value for money, for the coming of the robotic vacuum cleaner from Vileda in question.
The 3-stage cleaning system of the robotic vacuum cleaner
the Vileda Relax Cleaning Robot Similar to its more expensive brothers has a three-stage cleaning system:
If one has the Vileda Cleaning Robot is turned on, you can select by pressing a button on the top panel with 3 different cleaning programs:
Depending on which program is selected, the robot turns to the automatically allotted time . Of course, here a certain follow-up is necessary to ensure that the chosen cleaning program was also suitable for the room.
Both hard floors (wood, parquet, linoleum, tile) and short woven carpets from the two main brushes can be cleaned very well in this way were. Only with thicker carpets should use the classic vacuum cleaner instead of the robot.
The hopper can be removed by pressing a button, so that no additional costs for the purchase of vacuum cleaner bags are incurred.

The navigation at Vileda 142861
The driving strategy of Vileda 142861 follows a simple pattern: is given to him in the mid-to-clean space, so he works spiraling outwards forward until it eventually comes up against an obstacle, its direction changes and then cleans the remaining surfaces in straight paths .
This distinguishes the Vileda robot vacuum cleaner by his colleagues from the competition, which usually always go in straight paths. For the owner of the robot alone decisive but the fact that the device of this, based with the aid of a random navigation algorithm, driving strategy is actually reaches the entire surface to be cleaned.
The software of the Vileda 142861 contains a specific blockage sensor , which always triggered , when the wheels or brushes are blocked. This is for example the case when the robot vacuum cleaner encounters cable. The blockade sensor sets the instrument then called in a. “Reverse” mode, ie, the robot moves automatically from the blockade triggering point away.
Lighthouses as signs are not intended for the Vileda 142,861th But this is only a small drawback, since this function can be “manually” simulated to the robotic vacuum cleanmore rooms, so you just wearing it after work in the next room.
The sensor system of Vileda 142861
The Robosauger Vileda 142861 has several sensors:
It is advisable to briefly wipe after each cleaning cycle, the crash sensors to make them “blind” are not and the Vileda 142861 might “crash”. The stairs warning system of Vileda Staubsaugroboters directs an immediate change of direction as soon as a staircase or a paragraph is recognized. For the timely detection of the “abyss” provide four placed at the bottom of crash sensors.
Maintenance of the cleaning robot
The maintenance of this robotic vacuum cleaner is very simple: the collection vessel is removed by pressing a button on the robot body, and then emptied only when the cleaning brushes a little more effort is required because you use a screwdriver must first loosen a bolt here.
The cleaning of the brush itself is but unproblematic and is not necessary after each cleaning cycle.
also, the dust filter should be cleaned briefly on this occasion with the supplied maintenance brush. Regularly check the filter, and if he “obstructed” to appear to you, replace it (with the purchase is already a replacement filter case).
Do not forget to wipe the crash sensors!
