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 as 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 20 (V/m).
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.Hand-held portable transceivers (transmitters-receivers) with the antenna mounted
directly 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.

HS-125
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 20 (V/m).

OPERATING YOUR SCOOTER
You can make the following adjustments to increase your comfort when driving.
•adjust seat height and location
•adjust armrest width to comfortable position.
•adjust legroom.
1.Before operating your scooter, check the following:
•free-wheeling device on D
•speed dial is at the turtle picture.
2.Sit on scooter and turn on key. All Battery Gauge LED Lights should be lit.
The Self-Diagnostic Warning Light should not be blinking.
3.When your hands rest comfortably on the handlebars, the thumb control levers should
be within easy reach. The right lever moves the scooter forward, the left one moves it
backward. When you release both levers the scooter will stop.
This scooter has automatic braking systems. Release the thumb finger
control and the brakes will stop the scooter.
4.Steer the scooter by turning the whole steering column the way you want to go.
5.Practice driving where there are no obstacles. Start at the slowest speed and drive
forward and backward; make some turns. As you get more comfortable you can increase
the speed by turning the speed dial toward the picture of the rabbit.
6.If two Battery Gauge LED Lights be lit you should plan to recharge the batteries very soon.
7.If the scooter stops, locate the circuit breaker on the top of the battery pack. Push it and
try the scooter again.

Instruction Booklet
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 direct approach is needed.
Do not attempt curb climbing greater than a 1.9" curb.
If Self-Diagnostic Warning Light starts to blink, identify the problem from
the chart on page 13 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.
