ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE
AND WARNINGS
CAUTION: It is very important that you read this information regarding the possible
effects of Electromagnetic Interference on your motorized scooter.
Powered wheelchairs and motorized scooters may be susceptible to electromagnetic
interference (EMI), which is interfering electromagnetic energy (EM) emitted from sources
such a radio stations, TV stations, amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, two-way radios, and
cellular phones. The interference (from radio wave sources) can cause the motorized
scooter to release its brakes, move by itself, or move in unintended directions. It can also
permanently damage the motorized scooter control system. The intensity of the interfering
EM energy can be measured in volts per meter (V/m). Each motorized scooter can resist
EMI 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 at
least a 20 V/m immunity level, which would provide useful protection from the more common
sources of radiated EMI. The immunity level of this motorized scooter model is not known.
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 warnings listed
below, your risk to EMI will be minimized.
The sources of radiated EMI can be broadly classified into three types :
1.on the transmitting unit. Examples include: citizens band (CB) radios, "walkie talkie,"
security, fire, and police transceivers, cellular telephones, and other personal communication
devices;
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; and
3.Long-range transmitters and transceivers such as commercial broadcast transmitters
(radio and TV broadcast antenna towers) and amateur (HAM) radios.
Other types of hand-held devices, such as cordless phones, laptop
computers, AM/FM radios, TV sets, CD players, and cassette players,
and small appliances, such as electric shavers and hair dryers, so far as
we know, are not likely to cause EMI problems to your motorized scooter.

7-Series
Instruction Booklet
Motorized Scooter Electromagnetic Interference:
Because EM energy rapidly becomes more intense as one moves closer to the 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 motorized scooter control system while using these devices. This can affect motorized
scooter movement and braking. Therefore, the warnings listed below are recommended
to prevent possible interference with the control system of the motorized scooter.
Warnings:
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) from sources such as radio and TV stations, amateur
radio (HAM) transmitters, two-way radios, and cellular phones can affect motorized scooters.
Following the warnings listed below should reduce the chance of unintended brake release
or motorized scooter movement which could result in serious injury.
1.Do not operate hand-held transceivers (transmitters-receivers), such as citizens band
(CB) radios, or turn ON personal communication devices, such as cellular phones, while
the motorized scooter is turned ON;
2.Be aware of nearby transmitters, such as radio or TV stations, and try to avoid coming
close to them;
3.If unintended movement or brake release occurs, turn the motorized scooter OFF as
soon as it is safe;
4.Be aware that adding accessories or components, or modifying the motorized scooter,
may make it more susceptible to EMI; and
There is no easy way to evaluate their effect on the overall immunity of
the motorized scooter.
5.Report all incidents of unintended movement or brake release to the distributor listed
on the inside front cover of this manual. 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.The immunity level of this product is not known.

Keep in mind these rules:
•Release thumb levers and allow scooter to stop completely before changing from forward
to reverse, or reverse to forward.
•When turning a corner, swing the front wheels wide, because the back wheels will turn
more tightly.
•Use the scooter only where it would be safe to walk.
•Use low speeds for reverse, downhills, ramps, curbs, or uneven surfaces.
Other Operating Information:
Hill climbing: You may need to use a higher speed. Turn to lower speed before going
downhill.
Down slopes: To proceed down steep slopes slowly, set speed control in proximity of the
turtle. This enables driver control, as the closer the speed control is set
toward the turtle, the slower it will become. However, this scooter will not
self accelerate down hills due to the automatic braking taking effect should
you attempt to drive too fast.
Curb climbing: Approach slowly at right angles to the curb. A slight angle is permissible
with a 4-wheel scooter, but a direct approach is needed on a 3-wheel
scooter. Do not attempt greater than a 3" curb.
If Self-Diagnostic Warning Lights start to blink, identify the problem from
the chart on page 17 and take action.
If the scooter breaks down and must be moved, get off the scooter, push the Free-Wheeling
Lever to N, move the scooter slowly to a safe location, and move the lever back to D.
