Makita DRC200Z Industrial Robot Vacuum Available Soon at RobotShop

Posted on 21/02/2017 by AudioVOX in Industrial, Vacuum

We are excited to introduce you to the new Makita DRC200Z Industrial Robot Vacuum, which will be available here at RobotShop. This robot vacuum has been developed by Makita to answer a need in the industrial market. Makita has come out with a Roomba-like robot vacuum. It's been designed for commercial environments, workshops, offices, warehouses and production facilities. The robot has been jointly developed with Sharp.

It can clean 300 square meters on two 3.0Ah battery packs or 500 square meters on two 5.0Ah battery packs (sold separately). The batteries are run down in parallel, which means you can run the robot with only one battery instead of two. However, the cleaning time will be shortened. It has two cleaning modes, the pattern mode and the random mode. The Pattern mode is recommended in wide spaces with few obstacles while the Random mode is recommended in spaces with many shelves and other obstacles. You can turn off the vacuum motor, which means the vacuum will only collect larger debris while doubling the runtime of the robot.

You can find the features of the Makita DRC200Z below:

  • Automatic cleaning: Two automatic running modes (random & pattern). Buzzer and blinking light to make nearby workers aware of presence.
  • Cleaning area setting function: Enables user to define a cleaning area by putting boundary tape on the floor as boundary lines that the cleaner cannot pass.
  • Obstacle detection: Ultrasonic sensor and bumper sensor
  • Capacity: 2.5L
  • Two selectable dust collection modes: Vacuum plus brush for small and large debris. Power brush only for collecting large debris.
  • Cliff sensors
  • Wireless remote controller
  • Carry handle for easy transport
  • Power brush
  • 2 x Side brushes
  • Battery fuel gauge
  • Brushless motor
  • LED warning light for filter maintenance
  • Powered by two 18V Li-ion batteries in parallel
  • On-timer: enables automatic starting at 1, 3 or 5 hours

This robot can clean nuts and screws in a warehouse environment with ease. Here is a live test of the Makita Robot Vacuum in our warehouse:

As this robot is for industrial use, maybe you were wondering how it can be compared to domestic robots. The Makita DRC200Z is a lot bigger than the Roomba or the Neato. While the previous two robots are 350 x 350 x 90mm, the Makita is 460 x 460 x 180mm. It has a bigger dust bin capacity, 2.5L compared to a Roomba's 0.6L. However, the Makita DRC200Z doesn't have the self-charging ability, which most domestic robots have. However, with its huge autonomy, it shouldn't cause any issues. Overall, this is great robot vacuum for industrial and commercial use.
