iRobot Corp., launched a new iRobot Looj gutter cleaning robot and new iRobot Roomba 600 Series vacuum cleaning robots.

The Looj 330 is designed to take over the job of home gutter cleaning using a high-velocity, four-stage auger spinning at 500 RPM to blast away leaves, dirt, and clogs while brushing gutters clean. Multiple speeds let you spend more time clearing away tough clogs. A scraper boosts cleaning performance and clears a path for the robot. In Clean mode, the unit automatically senses and adapts to debris, providing the most effective cleaning.

The unit is powered by a 7.2V lithium-ion battery provides superior performance for a longer time. A lower profile design enables the unit to fit in more gutters. An increased communications range of up to 50 feet between the robot and remote control handle allows the unit to clean longer stretches of gutter without having to move the ladder. It cleans up to a 30-foot section of gutter in 5 minutes on average. It cleans 200 linear feet per battery charge on average. The unit is also waterproof in up to 8 inches of water.

The Roomba 600 Series uses a patented three-stage cleaning system to vacuum carpets, tile, laminate, and hardwood floors. AeroVac Technology optimizes airflow so the bin fills evenly and needs to be emptied less often. An improved brush design and optimized airflow removes more hair from the robot's brushes, providing more thorough cleaning and reduced maintenance. Onboard scheduling allows the user to preset up to seven cleaning cycles per week. iAdapt Responsive Cleaning Technology is the company's system of software and sensors that allows the robot to vacuum every section of the home's floor multiple times for a comprehensive cleaning. Dirt Detect uses an acoustic sensor to identify dirtier areas and spend more time cleaning them. The appliance automatically docks and recharges on its Home Base when it finishes vacuuming or when the battery is running low.
