Important Information Regarding Electromagnetic Interference (EMI)
It is very important that you read this information regarding the possible effects of electromagnetic interference (EMI) on
your scooter.
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) refers to the effects that outside sources of electromagnetic energy (radio and
television broadcasts, CB radios, garage door openers, cellular telephones, etc.) might have on the control systems of your
scooter. The interference from these sources could cause the scooter to release its brakes, move by itself, or to move in
an unintended direction. EMI could also result in permanent damage to the control system.
The sources of electromagnetic energy can be broadly classified into three types:
• Hand held short-range portable transceivers — These are transmitter/receivers with the antenna mounted
directly on the unit. Examples include: citizen band (CB) radios, “walkie-talkies”, security, fire and police transceivers,
cellular telephones, and devices that transmit signals even when not in use.
• Medium range mobile transceivers — These usually have the antenna mounted outside of a vehicle or building.
Examples include: police, fire, ambulance and taxi transceivers.
• Long range transmitters and receivers — These usually have the antenna mounted on a tower. Examples
include: commercial radio/television broadcasts and amateur (HAM) radios.
EMC Part: 44000700 • Rev.02 • 04/19/06

ELECTRIC
MOBILITY
Model 140T/140F Owner’s Manual
Other types of hand-held devices like cordless phones, laptop computers, AM/FM radios, and small appliances like hair
dryers or electric shavers may also generate electromagnetic energy, but it is such a small amount that, as far as we know,
no EMI problems should occur with these devices.
The intensity of interference from electromagnetic energy is measured in volts per meter (v/m), which refers to the
strength of the electrical source (voltage) as it relates to the distance away from the object being considered (in meters).
Resistance of a scooter to a certain EMI intensity is commonly called its “immunity level.” A level of 20 volts/meter is a
generally achievable and useful immunity level against interference from radio wave sources (the higher the immunity level,
the greater the protection).
Your scooter has been tested and found to meet the required immunity level for Electromagnetic Interference (20 v/m).

WARNING!
Even with an immunity level of 20 volt/meter, certain precautions must be followed
to ensure that your vehicle will not be affected by outside electromagnetic sources.
• Do not operate hand-held transceivers such as citizen band (CB) radios or turn on powered communication
devices such as cellular phones while the scooter is turned on.
• Be aware of nearby transmitters, such as radio and television stations, and avoid coming close to them.
• If an unintended movement should occur while operating the scooter, turn the power “off” as soon as it is safe to
do so.
• Be aware that if you do operate any electrically powered accessories, radios, cellular phones, or other devices, that
your scooter may become more susceptible to interference from outside electromagnetic sources.
• Report all incidents of unintended movement or unexpected brake releases to Electric Mobility’s customer service
department.

Transporting the 140T/140F
By Car — To transport your 140T/140F by car, place each of the components into the trunk, being careful not to scratch
or mark any of the finished surfaces. If you need assistance lifting weights, consider asking Customer Service Department
or your authorized service center about the Power Trunk Lift. This device will assist you in transporting your 140T/140F
by transferring the scooter or its components in and out of your trunk with very little effort. (See “Specifications” for
more information on weights).
By Airplane — To transport your 140T/140F on an airplane, we recommend that you call your airline at least 24 hours in
advance to ensure that they are able to handle your vehicle properly. Ask your airline whether they will need to
disassemble the 140T/140F or whether they plan to load and store it on the plane without disassembly. Ask specifically
where and with whom you should drop the unit off and where and with whom you should retrieve it at your destination.
Note: Only sealed lead-acid or sealed gel batteries are Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) approved for air travel. Your
scooter, Model 140T/140F, is equipped with Airline Approved sealed lead acid batteries.
Remember to bring this manual with you as a reference on your trip. Your manual will assist you in disassembling and
reassembling your 140T/140F if required.
Prior to leaving the airport, remember to test the 140T/140F when first getting on it. Direct any questions to the airline
personnel if the unit does not work as it did prior to transportation.

Preventative Maintenance
Performing periodic preventative maintenance on your 140T/140F will ensure long, useful operational life as well as
identifying any potential problems that may occur that might effect safe use and operation of the vehicle. Maintenance
topics are presented in the following. For convenience, a Preventative Maintenance Checklist is also included as an aid in
performing and recording maintenance of your 140T/140F.
Seat Upholstery
A damp cloth and a mild soap will keep your seat and backrest looking good. Do not use
abrasive cleaners as this will damage the coating. Upholstery can also be damaged by chemical
cleaners
.
Ultra-violet light can also reduce the life of the upholstery coating material. This is a normal aging
process and cannot be guaranteed.
Bodywork
The bodywork on your Model 140T/140F Vehicle can be lightly washed with a damp cloth and
mild soap and water. Do not use abrasive cleaners or strong detergents, because this will fade the
color.
CAUTION!
Do not hose down your 140T/140F Vehicle. Water could penetrate the electronics and cause
permanent damage.

Storage
DO NOT store your 140T/140F Vehicle in damp conditions. This may affect the electronics if left
for very long periods of time.
Electronics
Servicing of the drive electronics and charger should only be carried out by your local service
center. These units are sealed and should not be opened. BROKEN SEALS WILL VOID
YOUR WARRANTY. DO NOT operate your Model 140T/140F Vehicle in extreme weather
conditions, i.e. very heavy rain or snow. DO NOT drive through water. This may damage the
main electronic controller of your 140T/140F Vehicle.
Motor Brakes
If the motor brakes are functioning correctly, you will not be able to push your machine when the
key is switched off or switched on with the brake lever in the “DRIVE” position.
Safety Note: For your own safety, we recommend that you check the function of your 140T/140F
Vehicle brakes prior to use.
Driving Brake
When you drive your Model 140T/140F and let go of the control lever, your vehicle should reduce
speed very quickly and come to a gentle stop. If you notice a change in the normal driving/slowing
condition and your Model 140T/140F does not slow down quickly, please do not use your vehicle
and contact your local service center or call 1-800-257-7955.
Tires
Front and rear tires of your Model 140T/140F are foam-filled and do not require air pressure.
Tires should, however be checked periodically for damage, cuts, flat spots, or excessive tread wear.
Damaged tires should be replaced.

Battery
Model 140T/140F Owner’s Manual
Keep your battery well charged (see Battery Charging section). Keep battery clean and in a dry
frost-proof place. Keep battery contacts clean. To clean brush lightly with fine sand paper.
IMPORTANT!
It is not possible to predict the life expectancy of your battery. Different workloads
will affect battery accordingly.
Some 140T/140F Vehicle users will use their vehicle every day and for long periods of time. Their battery will receive a
near total discharge, and the life of their battery will be short (12 months or less in some cases). Other 140T/140F Vehicle
users will use their vehicles less frequently, putting their battery through a less demanding discharge life-style. These
batteries will probably have a longer life (12 to 24 months or longer).
