2.4 EMI
This portion of the content will provide the user with basic information that describes the problems with
EMI, known sources of EMI, protective measures either to lessen the possibility or exposure or to minimize
the degree of exposure, and suggested action should unexpected or erratic movement occur.
Caution: It is very important that you read this information regarding the possible effects
of electromagnetic interference on your electric scooter.
■ ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE (EMI) FROM RADIO WAVE SOURCES
Powered vehicle 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 powered vehicle to release its brakes, move by itself, or move in unintended directions. It can also
permanently 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 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. This powered vehicle 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. Hand-held portable transceivers ( transmitter-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.
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 transmitter (radio and TV
broadcast antenna towers) and amateur (HAM) radios;
