CHAPTER 2 – SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR BREEZE S
GENERAL
MANDATORY! Do not operate your new Breeze S scooter for the
first time without completely reading and understanding this owner’s
manual.
Your Breeze S is a state-of-the-art life-enhancement device designed
to increase mobility. We provide you an extensive variety of products
to best fit the individual needs of the user. Please be aware that the final selection
and purchasing decision regarding the type of Breeze S scooter to be used is the
responsibility of the user who is capable of making such a decision and his/her
healthcare professional (i.e., medical doctor, physical therapist, etc.).
The contents of this manual are based on the expectation that a mobility device
expert has properly fitted the Breeze S scooter to the user and has assisted the
prescribing healthcare professional and/or the authorized Provider in the instruction
process for the use of the product.
There are certain situations, including some medical conditions, where the user will
need to practice operating the Breeze S scooter in the presence of a trained
attendant. A trained attendant can be defined as a family member or care
professional specially trained in assisting a user in various daily living activities.
As you begin using your Breeze S scooter during daily activities, you will probably
encounter situations in which you will need some practice. Simply take your time and
you will soon be in full and confident control as you maneuver through doorways, on
and off elevators, up and down ramps, and over moderate terrain.
Below are some precautions, tips, and other safety considerations that will help the
you become accustomed to operating the Breeze S scooter safely.
MODIFICATIONS
We have designed and engineered your Breeze S Scooter to provide
maximum mobility and utility. However, under no circumstances
should you modify, add, remove, or disable any feature, part, or
function of your Breeze S Scooter.
WARNING! Do not modify your Breeze S Scooter in any way not
authorized by the manufacturer. Do not use accessories if they have
not been tested or approved by the manufacturer.
REMOVABLE PARTS
WARNING! Do not attempt to lift or move your Breeze S Scooter by
any of its removable parts , including the armrests, seat, or shroud.
10
PRE-RIDE SAFETY CHECK
Get to know the feel of your Breeze S Scooter and its capabilities. We recommends
that you perform a safety check before each use to make sure your Breeze S
Scooter operates smoothly and safely.
Perform the following inspections prior to using your scooter:
 Check for proper tire inflation. Maintain but do not exceed the
psi/bar/kPa air pressure rating indicated on each tire if equipped with
pneumatic tires.
 Check all electrical connections. Make sure they are tight and not
corroded.
 Check all harness connections. Make sure they are secured properly.
 Check the brakes.
 Check battery charge.
 If you discover a problem, contact your authorized Breeze S Provider for
assistance.
TIRE INFLATION
Your Breeze S scooter is equipped with pneumatic tires, you should
check or have the air pressure checked at least once a week. Proper
inflation pressures will prolong the life of your tires and help ensure the
smooth operation of your Breeze S scooter.
WARNING! It is critically important that the psi/bar/kPa air pressure
indicated on each tire be maintained in pneumatic tires at all times. Do not
underinflate or overinflate your tires. Low pressure may result in loss of control, and
overinflated tires may burst. Failure to maintain the psi/bar/kPa air pressure rating
indicated on pneumatic tires at all times may result in tire and/or wheel failure.
WARNING! Inflate your scooter tires from a regulated air source with an available
pressure gauge. Inflating your tires from an unregulated air source could overinflate
them, resulting in a burst tire.
NOTE: If the tires on your Breeze S scooter marked with psi rating only, use the
following conversion formulas to find the bar or kPa rating:
bar = psi x 0.06895, kPa = psi x 6.89476.
WEIGHT LIMITATIONS
Your scooter is rated for a maximum weight capacity. Refer to the
specifications table for information. See appendix A.
MANDATORY! Stay within the specified weight capacity for your
Breeze S scooter. Exceeding the weight capacity voids your warranty.
We will not be held responsible for injuries and / or property damage
resulting from failure to observe weight limitations.
WARNING! Do not carry passengers on your scooter. Carrying passengers on your
Breeze S scooter may affect instable conditions.
11
INCLINE INFORMATION
More and more buildings have ramps with specified degrees of
inclination, designed for easy and safe access. Some ramps may
have turning switchbacks (180-degree turns) that require you to have
good cornering skills on your Breeze S scooter.
 Proceed with extreme caution as you approach the downgrade of a
ramp or incline.
 Take wide swings with your Breeze S scooter around any tight corners. If you do
that, the scooter’s rear wheels will follow a wide arc, do not cut the corner short, and
do not bump into or get hung up on any railing corners.
 When driving down a ramp, keep the Breeze S scooter’s speed adjustment set to
the slowest speed setting to ensure a safely controlled descent.
 Avoid sudden stops and starts.
IFigure A. Maximum Recommended Incline Angle
When climbing an incline, try to keep your Breeze S scooter moving. If you must
stop, start up again slowly, and then accelerate cautiously. When driving down an
incline, do so by setting the speed adjustment dial to the slowest setting and driving
in the forward direction only. If your Breeze S scooter starts to move down the
incline faster than you anticipated or desired, allow it to come to a complete stop by
releasing the throttle control lever. Then push the throttle control lever forward slightly
to ensure a safely controlled descent.
WARNING! When on any sort of an incline or decline, never place the Breeze S
Scooter in freewheel mode while seated on it or standing next to it.
WARNING! When climbing an incline, do not zigzag or drive at an angle up the face
of the incline. Drive your Breeze S Scooter straight up the incline. This greatly
reduces the possibility of a tip or a fall. Always exercise extreme caution when
negotiating an incline.
WARNING! Do not drive your Breeze S Scooter across the side of an incline or
diagonally up or down an incline; do not stop, if possible, while driving up or down an
incline.
WARNING! You should not travel up or down a potentially
hazardous incline (i.e., areas covered with snow, ice, cut
grass, or wet leaves).
WARNING!
Even though your Breeze S Scooter is capable of climbing
slopes greater than those illustrated in figure A , do not,
under any circumstances, exceed the incline guidelines or
any other specifications presented in this manual. Doing so
could cause instability in your Breeze S scooter.
12
Handicap public access ramps are not subject to government regulation in all
countries, and therefore do not necessarily share the same standard percent of
slope. Other inclines may be natural or, if man-made, are not designed specifically for
Breeze S Scooters. Figure A illustrates your Breeze S Scooter’s stability and its
ability to climb grades under various weight loads and under controlled testing
conditions.
These tests were conducted with the Breeze S Scooter’s seat in the highest position
and adjusted rearward on the seat base to its farthest rearward position. Use this
information as a guideline. Your Breeze S Scooter’s ability to travel up inclines is
affected by your weight, your Breeze S Scooter’s speed, your angle of approach to
the incline, and your Breeze S scooter setup.
WARNING! Any attempt to climb or descend a slope steeper than what is shown in
Figure-A may put your Breeze S scooter in an unstable position and cause it to tip.
WARNING! Never carry an oxygen tank weighing more than 15 lbs (6.8 kg). Never fill
the front or rear basket with contents exceeding 5 Kg (11 lbs) in the front and
8 Kg
(17.6lbs) in the rear basket.
Figure B. Normal Driving Position
Position
Figure C. Increased Stability Drive
When you approach an incline, it is best to lean forward. See Figures B and C. This
shifts the center of gravity of you and your Breeze S Scooter toward the front of the
Breeze S scooter for improved stability.
NOTE: When negotiating ramps, if the throttle control lever is released while
moving forward, the powered Breeze S Scooter may "rollback" approximately 1
foot (30.5 cm) before the brake engages. If the throttle control lever is released
while moving in reverse, the powered Breeze S scooter may "rollback"
approximately 3 feet (one meter) before the brake engages.
CORNERING INFORMATION
Excessively high cornering speeds can create the possibility of tipping. Factors which
affect the possibility of tipping include, but are not limited to, cornering speed,
steering angle (how sharply you are turning), uneven road surfaces, inclined road
surfaces, riding from an area of low traction to an area of high traction (such as
passing from a grassy area to a paved area – especially at high speed while turning),
and abrupt directional changes. High cornering speeds are not recommended. If you
feel that you may tip over in a corner, reduce your speed and steering angle (i.e.,
lessen the sharpness of the turn) to prevent your Breeze S scooter from tipping.
13
WARNING! When cornering sharply, reduce your speed and maintain a stable center
of gravity. When using your Breeze S scooter at higher speeds, do not corner
sharply. This greatly reduces the possibility of a tip or fall. Always exercise your
senses when cornering.
BRAKING INFORMATION
Your Breeze S scooter is equipped with these powerful brake systems:
 Regenerative: Uses electricity to rapidly slow the vehicle when the throttle control
lever returns to the centre/stop position.
 Disc Park Brake: Activates mechanically after regenerative braking slows the
vehicle to near stop, or when power is removed from the system for any reason.
OUTDOOR DRIVING SURFACES
 Your Breeze S scooter is designed to provide optimum stability under normal
driving conditions- dry, level surfaces composed of concrete, blacktop, or asphalt.
However, We recognizes that there will be times when you will encounter other
surface types. For this reason, your Breeze S Scooter is designed to perform
admirably on packed soil, grass, and gravel. Feel free to use your Breeze S Scooter
safely on lawns and in park areas.
 Reduce your Breeze S Scooter’s speed when driving on uneven terrain and/or soft
surfaces.
 Avoid tall grass that can become tangled in the running gear.
 Avoid loosely packed gravel and sand.
 If you feel unsure about a driving surface, avoid that surface.
PUBLIC STREETS AND ROADWAYS
WARNING! You should not operate your Breeze S scooter on public streets and
roadways.
Be aware that it may be difficult for traffic to see you when you are seated on your
Breeze S Scooter. Obey all local pedestrian traffic rules. Wait until your path is clear
of traffic, and then proceed with extreme caution.
STATIONARY OBSTACLES (STEPS, CURBS, ETC.)
WARNING! Do not drive near raised surfaces, unprotected ledges,
and/or drop-offs (curbs, porches, stairs, etc.).
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your Breeze S Scooter climb or
descend an obstacle that is inordinately high.
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your Breeze S Scooter proceed
backward down any step, curb, or other obstacle. This may cause
the
Breeze S Scooter to tip.
WARNING! Be sure your Breeze S Scooter is traveling perpendicular to any curb
you may be required to ascend or descend.
WARNING! Do not attempt to negotiate a curb that has a height greater than 12 cm
(5").
14
INCLEMENT WEATHER PRECAUTIONS
Exposure of your Breeze S Scooter to inclement weather conditions should be
avoided whenever possible.
If suddenly caught up in rain, snow, severe cold or heat while operating your Breeze
S Scooter, proceed to shelter at the earliest opportunity. Thoroughly dry your Breeze
S Scooter before storing, charging, or operating your Breeze S Scooter.
PROHIBITED! Operating in rain, snow, salt, mist/spray conditions, and on icy
slippery
surfaces can have an adverse affect on the electrical system. Maintain and store your
Breeze S Scooter in a dry and clean condition.
WARNING! Prolonged exposure to hot or cold conditions may affect the temperature
of upholstered and non-upholstered items on the Breeze S Scooter, possibly
resulting in skin irritation. Exercise caution when using your Breeze S Scooter in
extremely hot or cold conditions or when exposing your Breeze S Scooter to direct
sunlight for prolonged periods of time.
FREEWHEEL MODE
Your Breeze S Scooter is equipped with a manual freewheel lever
that, when pushed Upward, allows the Breeze S scooter to be
pushed. For more information about how to place your Breeze S
scooter into and out of freewheel mode, see 3. “General description
of your Breeze S scooter.”
WARNING! When your Breeze S scooter is in freewheel mode, the
braking system is disengaged.
 Disengage the drive motors only on a level surface.
 Ensure the key is removed from the key switch.
 Stand beside the Breeze S Scooter to engage or disengage
freewheel mode. Never sit on a Breeze S Scooter to do this.
 After you have finished pushing your Breeze S Scooter, always return it to the
drive mode to lock the brakes.
 An added feature built into the Breeze S Scooter is “push-too-fast” protection
which safeguards the Breeze S scooter against gaining excessive speed while in
freewheel mode.
“Push-too-fast” operates differently depending on which of two conditions exists:
 If the key is switched “off” while in freewheel mode, the Breeze S scooter’s
controller activates regenerative braking when the Breeze S scooter is pushed faster
than a maximum threshold which has been preprogrammed. In this case, the
controller is acting as a speed governor.
 If the key is switched “on” while in freewheel mode, you will encounter considerable
resistance at any speed. This prevents the Breeze S scooter from gaining unwanted
momentum should the manual freewheel lever inadvertently be released while driving
the Breeze S scooter.
 When using this lever be careful not to touch the internal surface of the motor, they
could be very hot and cause injure. See the warning label at the rear of the scooter
near the lever.
15
STAIRS AND ESCALATORS
Breeze S scooters are not designed to travel up or down stairs or escalators.
Always use an elevator.
WARNING! Do not use your Breeze S scooter to negotiate steps or escalators.
DOORS
 Determine if the door opens toward or away from you.
 Use your hand to turn the knob or push the handle or push-bar.
 Drive your Breeze S Scooter gently and slowly forward to push the door open.
Or drive your Breeze S Scooter gently and slowly rearwards to pull the door open.
SAFETY
ELEVATORS
Modern elevators have a door edge safety mechanism that, when pushed, reopens
the door(s).
 If you are in the doorway of an elevator when the door(s) begin to close, push on
the rubber door edge or allow the rubber door edge to contact the Breeze S scooter
and the door will reopen.
 Use care that pocketbooks, packages, or Breeze S Scooter accessories do not
become caught in elevator doors.
NOTE: Sometimes turning with your Breeze S Scooter may be difficult to maneuver
in elevators and building entrances. Use caution when attempting to turn or
maneuver your Breeze S Scooter in small spaces, and avoid areas that might pose a
problem.

ELECTROMAGNETIC AND RADIO FREQUENCY INTERFERENCE
(EMI/RFI)
WARNING! Laboratory tests have shown that electromagnetic and
radio frequency waves can have an adverse affect on the
performance of electrically-powered mobility vehicles.
Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency Interference can come from
sources such as cellular phones, mobile two-way radios (such as
walkie-talkies), radio stations, TV stations, amateur radio (HAM)
transmitters, wireless computer links, microwave signals, paging transmitters and
medium-range mobile transceivers used by emergency vehicles. In some cases,
these waves can cause unintended movement or damage to the control system.
Every electrically-powered mobility vehicle has an immunity (or resistance) to EMI.
The higher the immunity level, the greater the protection against EMI. This product
has been tested and has passed at an immunity level of 20 V/M.
WARNING! Be aware that cell phones, two-way radios, laptops, and other types of
radio transmitters may cause unintended movement of your electrically-powered
mobility vehicle due to EMI. Exercise caution when using any of these items while
operating your mobility vehicle and avoid coming into close proximity of radio and TV
stations.
WARNING! The addition of accessories or components to the electrically-powered
mobility vehicle can increase the susceptibility of the vehicle to EMI. Do not modify
your Breeze S scooter in any way not authorized by the manufacturer.
WARNING! The electrically-powered mobility vehicle itself can disturb the
performance of other electrical devices located nearby, such as alarm systems.
NOTE: For further information on EMI/RFI,ask your authorized supplier.

The Breeze S has a Main Key Switch (1.11) - located at the top of the
Tiller Box (1).
The Main Key Switch has two positions:
 “OFF” - The Breeze S cannot be driven and the Electromagnetic
Brake is locked.
 “ON” - Power is supplied to the Breeze S. The Electromagnetic
Brake releases automatically when the Operating Speed lever is
squeezed.
To operate the Breeze S, insert the key into the Main Key Switch and
turn it to “ON” (clockwise). The switch will remain in this position and
the LCD (1.1) will be lit.
Note : Key Switch is used for operating the Breeze S , but not for locking .
When Key Switch is at “ON” position, after a few minutes (usually 20
minutes) without using the Operating Lever, the control system will be shut
off automatically to save battery energy.
In such cases, to restart control system, turn Main Key Switch “OFF” and
“ON” again.
The hand brake cable mechanism can be adjusted by an authorized
technician.
The Hand Brake is part of your safety system.
DO NOT adjust the Hand Brake by yourself-get professional assistance!
To start driving, squeeze the operating Speed Lever (1.8) gently until you
reach the desired speed. The speed is directly proportional to the
deflection of this Lever.
To stop-release the operating Speed Lever (1.16) , The Breeze S will stop
gradually , automatically.
Note: Additionally, emergency braking is possible using the Manual
Hand Brake (1.16).
Before turning, push the “Turn Signal Switch” (1.14), on the Handlebar to

Pushing the button once turns the all the lights ON blinking.
A second push turns them OFF.
When Hazard is activated both signals (5.3+5.4) are Flashing.
When the Vehicle is being charged it is inhibited. In this condition no
driving can be done. When being charged ON condition the signal (5.13)
will lit.
When driving on Ramp , Steep Curbs and turns drive the Breeze S very
slowly and carefully , even consider changing the Half Speed Switch (1.2)
to Half speed mode.
When going up or down a step always drive the Breeze S so that the
wheels will get in perpendicular direction to the step and the rear wheels
wheel climb or go down together.
Never try to go on an obstacle that is more than the maximum
recommended slope angle and curb climbing. Maximum rates are in the
specification sheet.
Always drive carefully, adjust the speed according the limitation of
the road.
Before making sharp turns , reduce the Breeze S speed to Half Speed
to prevent side roll-over.
After stopping, turn the Main Key Switch (1.11) to OFF and remove the

See details below.
Battery Status
Indicator
The Battery Capacity Indicator (5.5) in the LCD screen, shows you the
remaining capacity of the batteries. Like in cars the Batteries indicator is not
absolute accurate, but will help you from running out of fuel. The best way to
use the battery indicator is to learn it's behavior to the change of the battery
capacity. When the indicator points 2-3 bars, recharge batteries as soon as
possible.
When the indicator left only last blink Bar , you should get to immediate
charging, it is possible to drive only a short distance (3-4 km on level
surface).The accuracy of the battery indicator reading depends also on the
type and age of the batteries.
The Breeze S is equipped with Fault indication.
The fault indication appears as a flashing code of the battery indicator and
as well as an Error Code at the LCD screen (5.5 & 5.12).
For further details see Breeze maintenance manual.

Programming
Performance
check
To climb an Obstacle drive the Breeze S forward, toward the
Obstacle. Drive until that the front wheel is touching the
obstacle and than squeeze the lever speed, keeping the
direction.
Before making sharp
turns, and especially on
slopes, reduce the
Breeze S speed to
minimum to prevent
side roll-over.
The Breeze S is able to
go up slope higher than
the recommended safe
slope. Do not drive on
slopes you are not sure
about their angle.
However drive very
slowly and prevent side
angles more than 26%
(15°).
Now after learning through all the operating instructions,
before starting to use the Breeze S, do a visual check
through the all the parts of the vehicle, to make sure that no
external damage has been occur to the vehicle while
transportation. In any case you are not sure call your dealer
and ask for an explanation.
Several parameters of the Breeze S Controller can be
programmed with a special Programmer.
Programming should be done by trained authorized
technician only. Wrong programming can cause abnormal
operation of the Breeze S ,Harm persons and Injury.
It is very much recommended that when receiving as new or
from another user or after a period of not using the Breeze S
a performance check will be made as follows:
1. Switch on the main switch.
2. See that on the display panel – the battery indicator is lit
and the Ready/ON led is lit as well.
3. Squeeze the speed Wig Wag lever slowly and make sure
that the Breeze S is traveling with correspondence to the
squeezing on the lever.
4. Release the Speed lever and make sure that the Breeze

5. Make a check of all the buttons functions on the
handlebar.
6. Switch off the main key switch. Your Breeze S is now
ready to drive.
The user should know his weight and all other loads are
lower than the maximum of 160 Kg (352 lbs) / 200 Kg (440
lbs) depend on the model. If not sure it should be measured.
Use a safety belt when ever it is needed or under local
ordinance.
To transport the Breeze S in a motor vehicle , the Breeze
has to be secured while traveling .
The Foot rest of the Breeze S should be tie down (6) to the
motor vehicle floor with a suitable restrain belts and tight
systems.
The Rear part of the Breeze S should be tie down (7) as at
the 2 Yellow Marks at the rear part of the Breeze-in the lower
part of the power unit .
The tie/restrain system should be with similar components
and securing ,like the ones used in standard cars fasten belt.
Warning : When transporting the Breeze S , never use it
for any one to be seated on the scooter.

CHAPTER 9 – EMI WARNING
All types of electrically powered vehicles, such as powered
wheelchairs and motorized scooters (in this text all types will be
referred to as “powered vehicles”) may be susceptible to
electromagnetic interference (EMI). This is from sources such as radio
and TV stations, amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, two-way radios and cellular
phones. The interference (from radio wave sources) can cause the powered vehicle
to release its brakes, move by itself, or move in unintended direction. It can also
damage the powered vehicle’s control system. The intensity of the interfering EM
energy can be measured in volts per meter (V/m). Each powered vehicle can resist
EMI interfering electromagnetic energy (EM) emitted up to a certain intensity. This is
called its “immunity level”. The higher the immunity level, the greater the protection.
At this time, current technology is capable of achieving immunity level, which would
provide useful protection from the more common sources of radiated EMI. This
vehicle as shipped, with no further modification, has an immunity level of 20 V/m.
There are a number of sources of relatively intense electromagnetic fields in
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 of EMI will be minimized.
The sources of radiated EMI can be broadly classified into three types:
1.
Hand-held portable transceivers (transmitters-receivers) with the antenna
mounted directly on the transmitting unit. Examples include: citizen band (CB) radios,
“walkie talkies”, security, fire and police transceivers, cellular telephones and other
personal communication devices. ** NOTE: some cellular telephones and similar
devices transmit signals while they are ON, even when not being used.
2.
Medium-range mobile transceivers Such as those used in police cars, fire trucks,
ambulances and taxis. These usually have the antenna mounted on the outside of
the vehicle .
3.
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 players, cassette players and small
appliances such as electric shavers and hair dryers, as far as we know, are not likely
to cause EMI problems to your powered vehicle.
36
Powered Vehicle Electromagnetic Interference
(EMI)
Because EM energy rapidly becomes more intense as one moves
closer to the transmitting antenna, the EM field from hand-held radio
wave sources (transceivers) are of special concern. It is possible to
unintentionally bring high levels of EM energy close to the powered
vehicle’s control system while using these devices. This can affect powered vehicle
movement and braking.
Therefore, the warnings listed below are recommended to prevent possible
interference with the control system of the powered vehicle.
WARNINGS
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) from sources such as radio and TV stations,
amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, two-way radios and cellular phones can affect
powered vehicles.
Following the warnings listed below should reduce the chance of unintended brake
release or powered vehicle movement which could result in serious injury:
1)
Do not operate hand-held transceivers (transmitters-receivers) such as citizen
band (CB) radios, or turn ON personal communication devices such as cellular
phones, while the powered vehicle is ON;
2)
Be aware of nearby transmitters, such as radio or TV stations and try to avoid
coming close to them.
3)
On appearance of unintended movements or brake release occurrences, switch
the powered vehicle OFF as soon as it is safe.
4) Be aware that adding accessories or components, or modifying the powered
vehicle, may make it more susceptible to EMI (Note: there is no easy way to
evaluate their effect on the overall immunity level of the powered vehicle).
5) Please report to us all incidents of unintended movement or brake release and
note whether there is a source of EMI
nearby.
Important information
1) 20 volts per meter (V/m) is a generally achievable and useful immunity level
against EMI (as of May 1994). The higher the level the greater the protection;
2) This product delivered to you, has an immunity level of 20 V/m.
