|20140230168||POOL CLEANING ROBOT HAVING WATERLINE MOVEMENT CAPABILITIES - A cleaning robot that may include a control unit, a drive motor, a jet generator, a housing, a waterline proximity sensor, a filtering unit and a brushing unit. The jet generator has first and second openings that are positioned at opposite sides of the housing. The control unit is arranged to control the jet generator for jetting fluids to thereby inducing the pool cleaning robot to move according to a waterline movement scheme when the pool cleaning robot is proximate to the waterline. The waterline proximity sensor is arranged to sense proximity of the pool cleaning robot to a waterline. The drive motor and the jet generator are substantially closer to a front edge of the housing than to a rear edge of the housing.||08-21-2014|
|20130061407||POOL CLEANING ROBOT - A pool cleaning robot comprising: a housing; an impeller and a motor; at least one filter compartment configured for accommodating a filter unit therein; an impeller outlet formed in a housing top surface; at least one additional outlet other than the impeller outlet configured for being fluidly connected to an external suction and filtering system; at least one bottom inlet formed in said housing bottom configured for a first fluid communication with the impeller outlet via said filter unit, thereby defining a first fluid path; and at least one bottom inlet formed in said housing bottom configured for a second fluid communication with said additional outlet via a second fluid path at least partially different from the first fluid path, said second fluid path constituting a part of an external suction and filtering fluid path created when said additional outlet is fluidly connected to an external suction and filtering system.||03-14-2013|
|20100306931||POOL CLEANING ROBOT - A pool cleaning robot is provided for cleaning a surface of a swimming pool. The robot comprises a main housing, a pair of main wheels disposed at opposite ends of a bottom panel of the housing spanning along a majority of its width and carrying a pair of continuous tracks spanning between edges thereof, the main wheels being configured for rotating at a first angular velocity, at least one inlet being formed in the bottom panel between the main wheels and being configured for intake of water and debris, and at least one auxiliary brushwheel disposed between the main wheels. The robot is configured for rotating the auxiliary brushwheel about an axis of rotation at a second angular velocity which is substantially greater than the first angular velocity.||12-09-2010|
|20090307854||POOL CLEANING ROBOT - A suction-powered pool cleaning robot is provided, comprising a fluid outlet, configured for connection to a suction hose, and a fluid inlet, with a fluid path therebetween, a turbine, which may be any suitable device is configured to extract energy, such as in the form of rotational motion, from a fluid flow, at least partially disposed within the fluid path so as to extract energy from flow of fluid therethrough, and an electrical control system configured to regulate at least some of the operations of the robot, the control system comprising an electrical generator for providing power to the control system and configured to be driven by the turbine, and an electronic controller configured for the regulation.||12-17-2009|
|20090045110||Pool cleaning robot - A pool cleaning robot adapted for climbing a sidewall of a pool and comprising a bottom and two side panels. The robot is adapted for moving in a direction substantially parallel to the side panels. At least one of the side panels comprises a freely-rotating roller located adjacent to the bottom of the robot.||02-19-2009|
