6.1 Driving
CAUTION!
Risk of unexpected driving behavior due to locked
casters
If your mobility device is fitted with caster locks and
these are locked, the casters cannot move freely and
the mobility device might therefore not react to your
steering as it should.
– Make sure the caster locks are unlocked before
driving.
The maximum load capacity that is stated in the technical
data only states that the system is designed for this mass
in total. However, this does not mean that one can sit
a person with this body weight in the mobility device
without restrictions. Attention must be paid to the body
proportions, such as height, weight distribution, abdominal
belt, leg and calf strap and seat depth. These factors have
a strong influence on driving features such as tilt stability
and traction. The permissible axle loads in particular must
be adhered to (refer to 11 Technical data, page 96). It may
possibly be necessary to carry out adaptations to the seat
system.
If installed, make sure to properly adjust and use the postural
belt each time you use the mobility device.
Sitting comfortably = Driving safely
Before each trip, make sure that:
•
•
•
•
You are within easy reach of all operating controls.
The battery charge is sufficient for the distance intended to be
covered.
The postural belt (if installed) is in perfect order.
The rear mirror (if installed) is adjusted so you can look behind
at all times without having to bend forward or shift your seating
position.
6.3 Parking and stationary
When parking your vehicle or if your vehicle is stationary for a
prolonged period:
1.
2.
Switch the vehicle's power system off (ON-/OFF key).

1578997-C
Usage
6.5.2 Maximum obstacle height
CAUTION!
Risk of falling out of the mobility device and
damage to the mobility device such as broken
casters
– Never approach obstacles that are higher than the
maximum climbable obstacle height. For the maximum
climbable obstacle height, refer to 11 Technical data,
page 96.
– Never let the footrest/legrest touch the ground when
descending an obstacle.
– If unsure whether taking an obstacle is possible or
not, move away from the obstacle and if possible find
another location.
You can find information about maximum obstacle heights in the
chapter entitled 11 Technical data, page 96.
6.5.3 Safety information when taking obstacles
CAUTION!
Risk of tipping over
– Never approach obstacles at an angle but at 90
degrees as shown below.
– Approach obstacles with a gradient after it with
caution. If unsure whether the gradient is too steep
or not, move away from the obstacle and if possible
try to find another location.
– Never approach obstacles at an uneven and/or loose
ground.
– Never drive with too low tire pressure. For the
recommended tire pressure, refer to 11 Technical
data, page 96.
– Put your backrest into an upright position before
ascending an obstacle.
6.5.4 The correct way to overcome obstacles
Right
Wrong
Ascending
1.
2.
Approach the obstacle or the curb slowly, head-on and at a
right angle.
Depending on the wheel drive type, stop in one of the following
positions:
a.
b.
1578997-C
In the case of centrally driven mobility devices: 5 - 10 cm
before the obstacle.
For all other drives: approx. 30 - 50 cm in front of the
obstacle.
73
Invacare® TDX SP2® Series
3.
4.
Check the position of the front wheels. They must be in driving
direction and at right angles to the obstacle.
Approach slowly and keep at a consistent speed until the rear
wheels have also passed over the obstacle.
Descending
The approach to descend an obstacle is the same as to ascend it with
the difference that you need not to stop before descending.
1.
Descend the obstacle with medium speed.
When descending an obstacle too slowly it could happen
that the antitippers get stuck and lift the drive wheels
off the ground. A driving of the mobility device is then
no longer possible.
Ascending obstacles with a curb climber
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Approach the obstacle or the curb slowly, head-on and at a
right angle.
Stop in the following position: 30 – 50 cm in front of the obstacle.
Check the position of the front wheels. They must be in driving
direction and at right angles to the obstacle.
Approach with full speed until the curb climber makes contact
with the obstacle. The impetus will lift both front wheels over
the obstacle.
Keep at a consistent speed until the rear wheels have also passed
over the obstacle.
CAUTION!
Risk of tipping over
– Only ever drive downhill at a maximum of 2/3 of the
top speed. Avoid sudden changes of direction or
abrupt braking when driving on slopes.
– Always return the backrest of your seat or the seat tilt
(if adjustable seat tilt is available) to an upright position
before ascending slopes. We recommend that you
position the seat backrest or the seat tilt slightly to
the rear before descending slopes.
– Always lower the lifter (if fitted) to its lowest position
before ascending or descending a slope.
– Never attempt to ascend or descend a slope on
slippery surfaces or where there is a risk of skidding
(such as wet pavement, ice etc).
– Avoid trying to get out of the vehicle on an incline
or a gradient.
– Always drive straight in the direction the road or path
you are on goes, rather than attempting to zigzag.
– Never attempt to turn around on an incline or a slope.
CAUTION!
Braking distance is much longer on a downhill
slope than on even terrain
– Never drive down a slope that exceeds the maximum
safe slope (refer to 11 Technical data, page 96).
6.6 Driving up and down gradients
6.7 Use on public roads
For information concerning the maximum safe slope, refer to 11
Technical data, page 96.
If you wish to use your mobility device on public roads and lighting is
required by national legislation, then your mobility device needs to
be fitted with an appropriate lighting system.
Contact your Invacare dealer if you have any questions.

Usage
6.8 Pushing the mobility device in freewheel
mode
The motors of the mobility device are equipped with automatic
brakes, preventing that the mobility device starts rolling out of
control when the remote is switched off. When pushing the mobility
device manually whilst freewheeling, the magnetic brakes must be
disengaged.
Pushing the mobility device by hand may require more
physical force than expected (more than 100 N). The
necessary force nevertheless complies with the requirements
of ISO 7176-14.
Disengaging motors
1.
2.
6.8.1 Disengaging motors
Switch off remote.
Turn the engaging lever down A.
The motors are now disengaged.
Re-engaging motors
CAUTION!
Risk of the mobility device running away
– When the motors are disengaged (for push operation
whilst freewheeling), the electromagnetic motor
brakes are deactivated. When the mobility device is
parked, the levers for engaging and disengaging the
motors must without fail be locked firmly into the
"DRIVE" position (electromagnetic motor brakes
activated).
1.
Turn the engaging lever A upwards.
The motors are now re-engaged.
The motors may only be disengaged by an attendant, not
by the user.
This ensures that the motors are only disengaged if an
attendant is available to secure the mobility device and
prevent unintended rolling.
The lever for disengaging the motors is located behind the motors.

7 Electrical system
In the following, you find information on how to charge, handle,
transport, store, maintain, and use batteries.
7.1 Electronics protection system
7.2.1 General information on charging
The vehicle drive electronics is fitted with an overload protection.
New batteries should always be fully charged once before their first
use. New batteries will be at their full capacity after having run
through approx. 10 - 20 charging cycles (break-in period). This
break-in period is necessary to fully activate the battery for maximum
performance and longevity. Thus, range and running time of your
mobility device could initially increase with use.
If the drive is severely overloaded over a long period (for example,
during steep climbs) and, above all, at simultaneous high external
temperatures, the electronic system can overheat. In this case,
the vehicle performance is gradually reduced until it comes to a
standstill. The status display shows a corresponding flash code (please
refer to the user manual for your remote). If you switch the drive
electronics off and then on again, the error message is deleted and
the electronics can be switched on again. It can however take up to
five minutes until the electronics has cooled down enough for the
drives to apply their full performance.
If the drive is blocked due to an insurmountable obstacle, for
example, a curb or similar which is too high, and the driver attempts
to run the drive for more than 20 seconds against this obstacle, the
electronic system switches the drives off to avoid damage. The status
display shows a corresponding flash code (please refer to the user
manual for your remote). If you switch the drive electronics off and
then on again, the error message is deleted and the electronics can
be switched on again.
A defective main fuse may be replaced only after checking
the entire electric system. An specialized Invacare dealer
must perform the replacement. You can find information on
the fuse type in 11 Technical data, page 96.
Gel/AGM lead acid batteries do not have a memory effect as NiCd
batteries.
7.2.2 General instructions on charging

of the batteries:
77
Invacare® TDX SP2® Series
•
•
•
•
•
Always store the batteries fully charged.
Do not leave the batteries in a low state of charge for an
extended length of time. Charge a discharged battery as soon
as possible.
In case your mobility device is not used for a longer period
of time (that is more than two weeks), the batteries must be
charged at least once a month to maintain a full charge and
always be charged before use.
Avoid hot and cold extremes when storing. We recommend to
store batteries at a temperature of 15 °C.
Gel and AGM batteries are maintenance-free. Any performance
issues should be handled by a properly trained mobility device
technician.
7.2.6 Instructions on using the batteries
•
•
•
•
•
CAUTION!
Risk of damaging the batteries.
– Avoid ultra-deep discharges and never drain your
batteries completely.
•
•
•
78
Pay attention to the Battery Charge Indicator! Charge the
batteries when the Battery Charge Indicator shows that battery
charge is low.
How fast the batteries discharge depends on many
circumstances, such as ambient temperature, condition of the
surface of the road, tire pressure, weight of the driver, way of
driving and utilisation of lighting, if fitted.
Try to charge the batteries always before you reach the red LED
range.
The last 3 LED (two red and one orange) mean a remaining
capacity of about 15 %.
Driving with flashing red LED’s means an extreme stress for the
battery and should be avoided under normal circumstances.
When only one red LED is flashing, the Battery Safe feature
is enabled. From this time, speed and acceleration is reduced
drastically. It will allow you to move the mobility device slowly
out of a dangerous situation before the electronic finally cuts off.
This is deep discharging and should be avoided.
Be aware that for temperatures below 20 °C, the nominal
battery capacity starts to decline. For example, at -10 °C
the capacity is reduced to about 50 % of the nominal battery
capacity.
To avoid damaging the batteries, never allow them to be fully
discharged. Do not drive on heavily discharged batteries if it is
not absolutely necessary, as this will strain the batteries unduly
and shorten their life expectancy.
The earlier you recharge the batteries, the longer they live.
The depth of discharge affects the cycle life. The harder a
battery has to work, the shorter is its life expectancy.
Examples:
– One deep discharge stresses the same as 6 normal cycles
(green /orange display off).
– The battery life is about 300 cycles at 80 % discharge (first 7
LED off), or about 3000 cycles at 10 % discharge (one LED
off).
The number of LED can vary depending on the
remote type.
•
Under normal operation, once a month the battery should be
discharged until all green and orange LED are off. This should be
done within one day. A 16 hour charge afterwards is necessary
as reconditioning.
7.2.7 Transporting batteries
The batteries supplied with your mobility device are not hazardous
goods. This classification is based on the German GGVS Hazardous
Goods Road Transport Ordinances, and the IATA/DGR Hazardous
1578997-C
Electrical system
Goods Rail Transport / Air Transport Ordinances. Batteries may be
transported without restrictions, whether by road, rail or by air.
Individual transport companies have, however, guidelines which can
possibly restrict or forbid certain transport procedures. Please ask
the transport company regarding each individual case.
7.2.8 General instructions on handling the batteries
• Never mix and match different battery manufactures or
•
•
•
technologies, or use batteries that do not have similar date
codes.
Never mix gel with AGM batteries.
The batteries reach their end of life when the drive range is
significantly smaller than usual. Contact your dealer or service
technician for details.
Always have your batteries installed by a properly trained
mobility device technician or a person with adequate knowledge.
They have the necessary training and tools to do the job safely
and correctly.
7.2.9 How to handle damaged batteries correctly
CAUTION!
Corrosion and burns from acid leakage if
batteries are damaged
– Remove clothes that have been soiled by acid
immediately.

Note: The drive range of a mobility device is strongly influenced by external factors, such as the speed setting of the wheelchair,
the charging state of the batteries, surrounding temperature, local topography, road surface characteristics, tire pressure, weight of
user, drive style and use of batteries for lighting, servos etc.
The specified values are theoretical maximum achievable values measured according to ISO 7176-4.
4
Measured with solid tires. Pneumatic tires can increase the max. total width.
5
Measured without seat cushion
6
Width adjustable for side panel adjustment
7
Distance between backrest reference plane and most forward part of armrest assembly
8
Horizontal distance of wheel axle from intersection of loaded seat and backrest reference planes
