Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9417719A1] An ultra-quiet vacuum cleaner system having an active noise controller (26) adapted to measure with microphones (28), (29) the noise generated by the system and to provide via a speaker (27) an equal counter-noise to thereby attenuate the generated noise. The system also includes designing the coupling (22) between the bag cavity (20) and the motor chamber (23) and the motor chamber (23) itself as structures for reducing noise.
