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 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 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.

3-Series
Instruction Booklet
Motorized Scooter Electromagnetic Interference:
Because EM energy rapidly becomes more intense as one move 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 motorized scooter model is 20 V/m.

•Adjust seat height and location
•Tiller Angle Adjustment to comfortable position.
•Adjust armrest width.
1.Before operating your scooter, check the following:
•Free-wheeling device on D
•Speed control knob All 5 LED for is at the turtle picture.
2.Sit on scooter and turn on key. The Power Reserve Indicator light 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 control
levers 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 control knob toward the picture of the rabbit.
6.If the Power Reserve Indicator becomes lit in only few LED, you should plan to recharge
the batteries very soon.
7.If the scooter stops, locate the circuit breaker in the storage area. Press it and try the
scooter again.
8.When you are finished riding, turn off the key before getting off.
9.If you are finished riding for the day, immediately recharge the batteries. See CHARGING
THE BATTERIES, page 12.

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, downhill, 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 Light starts to blink, identify the problem from the chart on
page 14 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.

1.Insert battery charger cord into the charger connector on the charger output. Refer to
above figure for correct position.
2.Plug the other end of the battery charger cable into a standard electrical outlet.
3.The battery charger lights will normally be red at this point.
4.Allow to charge until the right battery charger light turns green.
5.After the light turns green, then unplug the battery charger from the scooter.
6.If at any time the right battery charger light flashes green over 40 minutes, this indicates
abnormal charging occurred. You should check that:
•charger plugs are correctly positioned,reset circuit breaker (A) .(Figure 13)
•the scooter is turned off
•If none of these is a problem, contact your authorized dealer.
The time needed to recharge will vary depending on the depletion of the
