Solar-Breeze pool skimming robot

Solar-Breeze 3rd generation

Although Solar Pool Technologies, Inc is not among the exhibitors of the now opening CES but they have scheduled the announcement of the 3rd generation Solar-Breeze robot for this very busy and important day. The new robot brings improvement on operation time and on the longevity of the product. The robot was changed in six eight areas, the two most important are the following:

  1. Solar-Breze has a new firmware that "teaches" the robot to hunt for sun. When it is low on power it tries to locate the sunny part of the pool and rest there until the battery is charged again.
  2. The drive motor was replaced by one that consumes 40% less energy than previous model. This allows the robot to run up to 12 hours with a single charge of the battery.

With these two improvements the robot can work more hours every day than it did before, but that's not all. The Solar-Breeze was improved in a few more points:

  1. bronze metal bushings for longer life
  2. higher UV protection to maintain product luster for a longer period
  3. improved debris tray with single piece coarse and fine filters molded together
  4. more robust switch knob
  5. it is CE certified
  6. more attractive product label and better fit

Press release: 

The design team at Solar Pool Technologies have made six changes to the Solar-Breeze robotic pool cleaner. Two of these improvements will make a very significant difference to your experience. The other changes will enhance the operation and the longevity of the product in less visible ways. The two most exciting enhancements are:

  1. Longer operating hours due to firmware improvements in charging routines and reduced power consumption in new motors, and
  2. Hunt for Sun feature for improved operation in shaded pools

Our new motors consume 40% less power during operation. Think about that – 40%!! Not only are they more economical, but by drawing less energy, they allow the unit to run more hours out of each 24. The unit will be able to run up to 12 hours on a full battery charge.

Terry Maaske, co-inventor of the Solar-Breeze, has rewritten the firmware to include a function we call “Hunt for Sun”. The robot actually hunts for sun. When it comes across a patch of sun, it rests there to allow the solar panels to soak up the solar energy and recharge the unit.

The combination of these two features and the four other improvements mean that your Solar-Breeze will run even more hours every day and clean your swimming pool even more effectively.

Europeans will be interested to know that the Solar-Breeze is now CE certified and our rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries are approved under the UN38 convention.
