The engineering story
After 25 years, a new era begins.
Smaller, faster, lighter.
Our engineers looked to aerospace engineering to create a motor that delivered the power we needed. The case material is phenolic moulding compound – as used in satellites – for its high resilience and strength-to-weight ratio, to smooth vibrations at ultra-fast motor speeds.
The boing effect.
Because of the extra power of the Dyson V10 motor, Dyson engineers had to double the number of magnet and stator pairs. When the trigger is released, the motor brakes the rotor to a stop almost instantly and the magnets bounce between the four stator positions. Like a ping-pong ball bouncing on a table, they move a smaller distance each time, creating a sound which our engineers call the ‘boing’.
The Dyson digital motor V10.
The result of all this development was the Dyson digital motor V10 – the fastest digital motor we have ever created.
This smaller motor allowed our engineers to rotate the cyclone and bin assembly through 90 degrees, into an in-line format. This created a linear airflow path – improving the number of Air Watts of suction by 20% compared to Dyson V8™ vacuums and allowing a ‘point and shoot’ bin emptying mechanism.
It also allowed us to wrap both the pre- and post-motor filters around the motor as one sealed unit, for improved filtration. We improved the motor housing, adding sound-absorbing material and acoustic baffles, to reduce noise.
Long-lasting power from a single battery.
We wanted to get long-lasting suction power into just one battery, our seven-cell, 525 Watt lithium-ion battery pack has high-capacity which delivers fade-free power using nickel-cobalt-aluminium battery chemistry. Dyson’s intelligent power management system monitors power distribution to deliver fade-free power.
