2.4 EMI
This portion of the content provides the user with basic information that describes the problems with
EMI, known sources of EMI, protective measures either to lessen the possibility of exposure to EMI 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 SPORTRIDER.
■ ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE (EMI) FROM RADIO WAVE SOURCES
Battery powered vehicles 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;
User Manual (Page 9 of 31)

SAFETY
N OT I C E
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, so far as we know, are not likely to cause EMI problems to your powered vehicle.
■ POWERED VEHICLE ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE (EMI)
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 ( transreceivers) are of special concern. It
is possible to unintentionally bring high levels of EM energy very closer 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 and motorized
scooter. 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-receivers), such as citizens band (CB) radios, or turn ON
personal communication devices, such as cellular phones, while the powered vehicle 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 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 evaluated their effect on the overall
immunity of the powered vehicle);
5. Report all incidents of unintended movement or brake release to the powered vehicle manufacturer,
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 ( the
higher the level, the greater the protection);
2. This product has an immunity level of 20 V/m without any accessories connected to it.
