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 mobile phones. The
interference (from radio wave sources) can cause the powered scooter to release its
brakes, move by itself, or move in unintended directions. It can also permanently damage
the powered scooter’s control system. The intensity of the interfering EM energy can be
measured in volts per meter (V/m). Each powered 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. This powered scooter 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.
Note: Some mobile telephones and similar 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
scooter.
5
2 . S A F E T Y N OT I C E
3. Long-range transmitters and transceivers, such as commercial broadcast transmitter
(radio and TV broadcast antenna towers) and amateur (HAM) radios.
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 scooter.
■ 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
( transceivers ) are of special concern. It is possible to unintentionally bring high levels
of EM energy very close to the control system of power chair 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 scooter.
■ WARNINGS
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) from sources such as radio and TV stations,
amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, two-way radios, and mobile phones can affect
powered scooter and motorized scooter. Following the warnings listed below should
reduce the chance of unintended brake release or powered scooter 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 evaluate
their effect on the overall immunity of the powered scooter).
5. Report all incidents of unintended movement or brake release to the powered scooter
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.

 Warning
When on a gradient NEVER set the vehicle to the freewheel mode. The electromagnetic
brakes will not be applied. This may result in injury or damage.
■ Battery indicator
The battery indicator on the tiller console uses
a color code to indicate the approximate power
remaining in your batteries. Green indicates (40~
100%) capacity, yellow a draining charge(10 ~
30%),and red indicates that an immediate recharge
is necessary.
 The remaining power suggested by the battery
indicator will vary by the actual driving time
incurred and how you drive. Repeated starting,
stopping, climbing will consume the power
more quickly.
 Never let the batteries drain completely. we
recommend to charge the scooter as soon as the
charge shows the red zone of the display.

 Suggestion
1. You should recharge the batteries after each time the vehicle is used to ensure maximum
range. The batteries should be charged up at least once a week even if the scooter is not
used.
2. After charging or replacing a new battery, ride the vehicle for 2-3 minutes to make sure
the battery capacity is sufficient.
3. In winter time, the battery may respond more slowly and the battery range may be
reduced.
4. When riding on a gradient, the battery indicator light might move up and down. This is a
normal phenomenon so please do not worry.
5. Even if the battery is used properly, it is natural for the battery’s capacity to reduce with
time, which results in reduced battery range compared to a brand new battery. Therefore,
when you find the battery’s range is about only 50% of the range when the batteries were
new, it is time to replace the batteries. Please see your dealer about replacement
batteries. If you continue to use the old battery when it should be replaced, it could lead
to a rapid decline in performance.
6. The battery range will be reduced when riding frequently on a slope or rough terrain, as
this leads to greater consumption of power.
7. The batteries have a six-month warranty covering manufacturing defects. This warranty
does not cover faults due to incorrect battery recharging.
■ How to adjust the seat height
1. Remove the seat from your scooter.
2. Remove the lock bolt from the lower seat post.
