Electromagnetic Interference (EMI)
This portion of the manual will provide the user with basic information about the problems with
EMI (electromagnetic interference), protective measures can be used to either lessen the
possibility of exposure or to minimize the degree of exposure; this section also shows some
conditions that unexpected or erratic movements may cause.
Caution
It is very important that you read this information regarding the possible effects of
electromagnetic interference on your electric ActiveCare mobility scooter.
ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE (EMI) FROM RADIO WAVE SOURCES
Mobility scooters may be susceptible to electromagnetic interference (EMI), which is interfering
electromagnetic energy (EM) emitted from sources such as radio stations, TV stations, amateur
radio (HAM) transmitters, two-way radios, and cellular phones. The interference (from radio wave
sources) can cause the mobility scooter to release its brakes, move by itself, or move in
unintended directions. It can also permanently damage the mobility scooter’s control system. The
intensity of the interfering EM energy can be measured in volts per meter (V/m). Each mobility
scooter can resist EMI up to a certain intensity level. The higher the immunity level the greater the
protection. At this time, current technology is capable of achieving at least a 20 V/m immunity
level, which would provide useful protection from the more common sources of radiated EMI. This
mobility scooter model as shipped, with no further modification, has an immunity level of 20 V/m
without any accessories.
There are a number of sources of relatively intense electromagnetic fields in the everyday
environment. Some of these sources are obvious and easy to avoid. Others are not apparent and
exposure is unavoidable. However, we believe that by following the warning listed below, your
risk to EMI will be minimized.
The sources of radiated EMI can be broadly classified into three types:
1.
2.
3.
Hand-held portable transceivers (transmitter-receivers with the antenna mounted directly on
the transmitting unit). Examples include: citizens band (CB) or hand held radios, (security, fire,
and police transceivers), cellular telephones and other personal communication devices.
NOTE: Some cellular telephones transmit a signal while they are ON but not being used.
Medium-range mobile transceivers, such as those used in police cars, fire trucks,
ambulances and taxis usually have the antenna mounted on the outside of the scooter.
Long-range transmitters and transceivers, such as commercial broadcast transmitters (radio
and TV broadcast antenna towers) and amateur (HAM) radios.
NOTE: Other types of hand-held devices, such as cordless phones, laptop computers, AM/FM
radios, TV sets, CD player, and cassette players, and small appliances, such as electric shavers
and hair dryers, are not likely to cause EMI problems to your mobility scooter.
5
Spitfire EX 1320/1420 Owner’s Manual
MOBILITY SCOOTER ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE (EMI)
EM energy rapidly becomes more intense as one moves closer to a transmitting antenna (source).
The EM fields from hand-held radio wave sources (transceivers) are of special concern. It is
possible to unintentionally bring high levels of EM energy very close to the mobility scooter’s
control system while using these devices; this can affect your scooter’s movement and braking.
Therefore, the warnings listed below are recommended to prevent possible interference with the
control system of a mobility scooter.
Warning!
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) from sources such as radio and TV stations, amateur
radio (HAM) transmitters, two-way radios, and cellular phones can affect mobility
scooters. Following the warnings listed below should reduce the chance of unintended
brake release or mobility scooter movement which could result in serious injuries.
1. Do not operate hand-held transceivers-receivers, such as citizens band (CB) radios,
or turn ON personal communication devices, such as cellular phones, while the
mobility scooters turned ON.
2. Be aware of nearby transmitters, such as radio or TV stations, and try to avoid
getting close to them.
3. If unintended movement or brake release occurs, turn the mobility scooter OFF as
soon as it is safe.
4. Be aware that adding accessories or components, or modifying the mobility scooter,
may make it more susceptible to EMI.
5. Report all incidents of unintended movement or brake release to ActiveCare
Medical, and note whether there were sources of EMI nearby.

Push the throttle lever forward with your right thumb and the scooter will move forward.
Push the throttle lever forward with your left thumb and the scooter will move backward.
The horn will beep when the scooter is in reverse.
BRAKING & STOPPING
To activate the electromagnetic brake, release the throttle lever completely. The brake will be
activated and the scooter will come to a stop. When parking, park only on a flat surface and turn
the key switch to [OFF]. Then pull out the key (only after stopping).
Caution
Stopping distance will vary with your forward/reverse speed. Please begin braking as
early as possible. When parking your scooter, be sure to park on a flat ground and then
turn the power to “OFF”.
HORN BUTTON
The warning horn will be activated while holding down the button.
SEAT
The seat can be turned 180°. Pull the swivel seat lever to rotate the seat. The seat has 3 height
adjustments. After adjusting the height to the desired seat position, secure the fixed nut.
Caution
Be sure the seat is in the forward position and locked before driving.
BATTERY GAUGE
When the key is switched “ON”, the battery gauge will display the battery
power capacity by indicating red, yellow and green areas respectively.
The green area indicates a full charge from the battery. Red area indicates
low power.
The remaining power indicated by the battery gauge will vary based on the actual driving time
and how you drive. Repeated starting, stopping or climbing will consume the power more quickly.
Suggestion
1. It is recommended that you charge the battery immediately when the battery gauge
is in the red area.
2. After charging or replacing a new battery, drive the scooter for 2-3 minutes to make
sure the battery capacity is enough.
3. In the wintertime, the battery may respond more slowly and the distance you can
Spitfire EX 1320/1420 Owner’s Manual

travel may also be shortened.
4. When driving on an incline, the battery gauge light might move from green to red,
this is a normal phenomenon, please do not worry.
5. Even if the battery is used properly, it is natural that the battery capability will decay
as time passes. This results in a shortening of travel distance compared to a brand
new battery. Therefore, when you find the travel distance is about only 50% of a
brand new battery’s traveling distance, it is time for a replacement battery. Please go
to your dealer and ask a new battery. If you continue to use the old battery when its
capacity has decreased, it could lead to a decrease in travel distance.
6. Travel distances will be shortened when driving frequently on an incline or slope, as
this leads to a larger consumption of the power.
