Safety devices
1. Bumpers
The bumper sensor is activated if the robot strikes a solid object greater than 9 cm (3.54 ") in height, which stops the movement
in that direction and moves backwards to avoid the obstacle.
2. Inclinometer
If the robot works on a slope which is steeper than the maximum limit, or tips over, the robot will stop the cutting blade.
3. Emergency stop switch
Located on the control panel with the word “STOP” larger than the other commands on the keypad. Pressing this button at any
time during operation will immediately stop the movement of the lawnmower robot and the rotation of the blade will stop within
2 seconds.
4. Over-current protection
Each motor (blade and wheels) is monitored continuously during operation for any situation that may cause them to overheat. If
this occurs in the wheel motor, the robot will attempt to move in the opposite direction. If the over-current persists, the robot will
stop and signal an error. If the cutting blade motor overheats, there are two intervention ranges. If the parameters fall within the
first range, the robot will perform the manoeuvres to unblock the cutting blade. If the over-current is below the protection range,
the robot will stop and signal a motor error.

General description of the appliance
The appliance is a robot designed and built to automatically cut
grass in gardens and lawns at any time of the day.
RANDOM OPERETION
It is small, compact, silent and easy to handle depending on the
type of lawn that is being mowed.
During operation, the robot mows the area delimited by paving
and/or barriers (fences, walls, etc.).
When the robot detects that there is no grass or encounters an
obstacle, it changes route in a random manner and starts mowing
again in a new direction.
Based on its operating principle (“random”), the robot automatically
mows the entire delimited area of the lawn (see figure).
The maximum lawn surface that the robot can mow depends on a series of factors, such as:
•
•
•
•
the characteristics of the area (irregular perimeters, uneven surfaces, divided areas, etc.).
the characteristics of the lawn (type and height of the grass, humidity, etc.).
the condition of the blade (level of sharpness, grass or debris buildup, etc.).
the model of the robot and type of batteries installed.

Preparation and marking the boundaries of the work areas
preparation of the lawn to be mowed
EN
1. Make sure that the lawn to mow is even and does not contain holes, stones or other obstacles. Otherwise, prepare the lawn
by filling in any holes and removing any obstacles. If some obstacles cannot be removed, it is necessary to properly define
and protect the interested areas.
2. Check that all the areas of the lawn do not exceed the allowable slopes (see “Technical Specifications”).
The sensors, which recognise the presence of the grassy surface, allow the robot to move freely inside the lawn. The lawn must
be suitably checked and adjusted so that the robot has enough space for recognising when there is no grass. Carefully follow
the below points for the correct and safe use of the robot.

The robot requires at least 25 cm (9.84 ") without any grass for
it to stop safely and change direction. For lawns with paths or
curbs, they must be at least 25 cm (9.84 ") wide. Any curbs that
are less than 25 cm (9.84 ") side, must be protected with paving
or arches in the ground, as shown in the figure, so that the robot
impacts with them.
The robot with the curb drop-off sensor installed needs 10 cm

Hedging
The work area can also be effectively delimited by hedges.
OK
EN
Holes
The work area cannot be delimited by ditches or holes which
must not be present inside the grassy area to mow. Before
starting the robot, check that there are no objects on the lawn
such as toys, small stones, branches or sprinklers protruding
from the ground which could impede correct functioning or
cause damage to the blade.
NO
Obstacles and protections
The illustrations show an example of the internal and peripheral elements of the correct work area. If elements such as tree
roots or exposed wires are present, it is necessary to delimit the perimeter of these elements with paving, walls or barriers to
prevent the malfunctioning of the robot. Elements (trees, poles, etc. ref. fig. obstacles) which do not impede the robot’s normal
functioning do not require delimiting.
OK

Slopes
Check that all the areas of the lawn do not exceed the admissible slopes (see “Technical Specifications”).
Areas with steeper slopes or that are incompatible with the correct functioning of the robot (see following points) cannot be
mowed. Steeper slopes must be delimited.
Important
The sensors of the robot can detect slopes greater than the robot can manage. The direction is reversed
in order to prevent the robot from tipping over or malfunctioning. In addition, as a further protection, it is
necessary to delimit the areas, which have slopes that cannot be managed. It is recommended to test the
robot when using for the first time on slopes that are at the limit of the specifications.

more than one metre.
Steep slopes
The robot’s safety system will interpret sudden changes in the slope (greater than 25%) as an anomaly and therefore, will
reverse the direction and bring the robot back to safety continuing to mow the lawn. Tree trunks which gradually rise from
the ground or stones positioned to mark the boundary of flower-strips which gently descend onto the grassy surface are also
interpreted as slope changes.
