Sometimes – as engineers – you have to take something apart simply to see how it is put together.
Today we decided to take apart the new Sebo X7 Pet vacuum cleaner. For no other reason than to have a look at it and then rebuild it again.
Contrary to popular belief, they share almost no internal parts with the previous Sebo X4.
When we take off the top we can see that ostensibly it looks pretty similar to previous Automatic X Sebo models. However there are many differences. The height adjustment module and the belts are the same, other than that pretty much everything else is different.
Where before there were two PCBs under the hood of a Sebo Automatic X machine, on the Sebo X7 there is only one.
The functions of the previous other two boards are condensed into this one.
The motor is enclosed within a bucket assembly which differs to the previous mounting arrangement completely.
The underside of the main PCB control board (which is designated NPPSTXG-A6) shows a few components. But not many.
When we take out the motor from the bucket assembly we see that it is an Ametek type with a twin fan. The motor is a little bit smaller than the previous Domel motors fitted to the Automatic X series.
Overall as we thought, whilst being a facelift, most components have actually been changed. Only the height adjustment unit, the belts and the brushroll remain the same in the head unit – everything else is new.
They Sebo X7 comes in three standard variants: standard gloss white, gloss blue and the top of the range version that we have looked at here today is the black X7 Pet.
