fall off the vehicle. Do not carry cargo that is longer, wider or higher than this vehicle.
Always depress slowly the accelerator for smooth acceleration. Avoid stunt driving or horseplay.
Avoid sharp turns, always slow down before turning, to prevent vehicle overturn or trailer jack knife. Vehicle is more
sensitive to overturn and jack knife when traveling on inclines or when carrying a heavy load.
Always drive straight up and down the face of an incline, never across the face, to prevent overturn and trailer jack
knife. Drive slower and start applying brakes sooner on inclines to adjust for longer stopping distance.
Use extra care and drive slowly in reverse, in congested areas or on wet or slippery ground.
Keep to the right under normal conditions. Maintain a safe distance from all objects.
Slow down and sound the horn when approaching a corner or other blind intersections.
Before leaving the vehicle, park on a level ground flat surface, turn off all switches, set the forward/reverse switch to
neutral, set the parking brake, remove the key. Do not park the vehicle on an incline.
Before battery charging, park the vehicle in a well ventilated area set for. Do not operate it when charging. To
interrupt a charging cycle, disconnect the AC plug; disconnecting the DC plug or a battery terminal, or operating the

Owner shall comply with OSHA and ANSI/ITSDF B56.8 & B56.9 Standards for vehicle maintenance.
Only qualified and authorized personnel shall be permitted to maintain, repair, adjust and inspect
carriers, vehicles, tractors, and batteries.
Before any maintenance work, park the vehicle on flat level surface, turn off all switches, remove key,
lift wheels off the ground and secure with jack stands of adequate capacity. Don‟t connect charger.
Keep clear from moving parts such as tires, sheaves and motor.
Follow the maintenance instructions applicable to the type of repair, maintenance, or service.
Always wear a face shield and gloves when working around batteries.
Before opening the battery compartment, disconnect the charger, turn off all switches and remove the
key. Batteries emit highly explosive gases which greatly increase when charging; do not disturb
connections or produce sparks around batteries to avoid a battery explosion and acid splashing. Battery
acid causes severe damage to eyes or skin. Flush contaminated area immediately with water.
Use insulated tools to avoid sparks that can cause battery explosion and acid splashing.
Use two counteracting tools, double-wrench technique, when disconnecting or tightening terminals on
the battery and the speed controller to avoid cracking the terminal or battery post welds.
Before cleaning or replacing a battery, charger, speed controller, contactor, relay, diode, or any other
component in the power circuit, always disconnect the charger, turn off all switches, remove the key,
wear a face shield and gloves, identify battery polarity and disconnect battery leads, discharge the
capacitor in the controller with a 10 ohms, 25 W resistor for a few seconds across B+ and B-.
After cleaning, the power must not be reapplied until terminal areas are thoroughly dry.
On EE-Rated vehicles make sure that the control box is sealed, the static strap makes good contact with
the ground, the motor is sealed by bands, the cable protectors are properly installed.
Keep cables and wires clear from mechanical and rubbing action. Make sure that cable insulation is
free from cutting or visible damage. Make sure that EE-Rated cable protectors are properly installed.
Before replacing a fuse or circuit breaker, identify the cause of failure and repair.
Programmable controllers must be programmed using the parameter settings in this service manual,
before connecting the motor, to avoid sudden vehicle movement and accident.
-8-
Maintenance
Do not try to increase motor speed by changing parameter settings in the speed controller; it can cause
accident and severe damage to the motor.
SEPEX speed controls are protected by a diode in the power circuit to filter inductive loads in the event
of a sudden power interrupt. Some speed controllers require a diode to filter inductive loads on the KSI
input. Removing the diodes will cause the speed control failure.
Before resuming maintenance operations, inspect safety warnings stickers and replace any if damage is
found and part of the text can‟t be read.
Check decals and labels, see “DECAL AND LABELS” page.

BATTERY MAINTENANCE
! WARNING !
It is the responsibility of the owner of this vehicle to ensure that the service technicians are
properly trained, read and obey the safety rules and guidelines in this manual (ANSI B56).
Maintenance operations must be made by properly trained service technicians only.
Before any maintenance work, park the vehicle on a flat level surface, turn off all the
switches, set to neutral, remove the key, lift the wheels off the ground and secure with jack
stands of adequate capacity.
Keep charger disconnected while doing any maintenance work.
Always wear a face shield and scarf when working around batteries.
Battery emits highly explosive gases; do not produce sparks to avoid battery explosion and
acid splashing. Battery acid causes severe damage to eyes or skin. Flush contaminated area
immediately with water.
Use insulated tools to avoid sparks that can cause battery explosion and acid splashing.
Use two counteracting tools, double-wrench technique, when disconnecting or tightening
battery posts.
Before cleaning or replacing a battery, discharge the capacitor in the controller with a 10
ohms, 25 W resistor for a few seconds across B+ and B-, identify battery polarity and
disconnect battery leads.
After cleaning, the power must not be reapplied until terminal areas are thoroughly dry.
BATTERY LEADS AND CONNECTORS
Check for loose connections, damaged cables, acid spill, loose terminal posts, quarterly.
BATTERY POST CORROSION
If corrosion is present on battery posts, remove the cable connectors, use a wire brush to remove
particles, and then clean them with a cloth that has been moistened with ammonia.
ELECTROLYTE LEVEL
Does not apply to sealed battery.
Disconnect battery connectors on roll-out or lift-out installations.
Make sure the battery roll-out tray is provided with stops before rolling out.
Fill with distilled water.
Daily charged batteries normally require watering once a week. Under watering leads to a
shortened battery life. Over watering leads to battery corrosion. Be careful not to overfill any cell to
avoid electrolyte to be forced out while charging.
Fill each cell to plate level with distillated or de-ionized water, before battery charging. When the
battery is charged, the fluid expands and can seep out if overfilled. Refill each cell after full charge,
when the fluid has expanded to its maximum level.
Reinstall battery caps before charging.
- 16 -
Maintenance
BATTERY MOUNTING
A loose battery increases damaging effects of vibrations and is more prone to short out.
BATTERY DISCHARGE LIMIT
Discharging below a 20% state of charge cuts down the battery life and the number of cycles available.
At 20% state of charge, specific gravity of 6V battery should be 1180; and 1220 for industrial battery.
CHARGING AREA
Always charge battery in a well ventilated area set for and approved for charging.
Never leave a charger connected for more than 20 hours.
FREQUENCY OF CHARGE
When a battery is discharged to its 20% state of charge, it is best to charge immediately.
Batteries require a low current equalization charge (min 4 hours) at least every week, to equalize
battery cells, improve battery performance and life in number of cycles.
Never leave a charger connected for more than 20 hours.
STORAGE
Keep the battery from getting cold, it would loose its capacity.
Let the battery warm up before charging.
Charge batteries in “stored” vehicles every month.
DEFECTIVE BATTERY
Check specific gravity of each cell; if a cell is shorted, voltage drop may occur only when there is
current.
- 17 -
Maintenance

ELECTRICAL TROUBLESHOOTING
! WARNING !
Maintenance work must be performed by trained service technicians only.
It is the responsibility of the owner of this vehicle to ensure that the services technicians are properly
trained, understand and obey the safety rules and guidelines (ANSI B56).
All service technicians must read and understand the maintenance warning section in this manual.
! WARNING !
Before any maintenance work, park the vehicle on a flat level surface, turn off all switches, remove the
key, lift the wheels off the ground, secure with jack stands of adequate capacity, disconnect charger.
Always wear safety glasses.
Batteries emit highly explosive gases that can be ignited by a spark. Before disconnecting a high
current terminal, turn off all switches, disconnect battery charger, disconnect batteries.
Keep clear from moving parts such as tires, sheaves and motor.
PMC SELF DIAGNOSTIC
If your PMC comes with a status led, use the flashing code to help troubleshooting.
BATTERY VOLTAGE
Make sure batteries are securely connected. Measure voltage between + and - terminals. We will call
this value B+ or full battery voltage.
ACCESSORIES NOT WORKING
Check the fuses on the batteries and the DC/DC converter.
Check voltage across + and – terminals on the battery gage; if not B+, check wiring.
Turn the key switch ON, check voltage between output terminal on the key switch and the terminal on the battery gage; if not B+, replace the key switch.
Check voltage across DC/DC converter output terminals; if not 12-Volt, replace the converter.
Depress the accessory switch, check voltage across accessory terminals. If not 12-Volt, replace the
switch. If 12-Volt, replace the accessory.
FORWARD ONLY
On a SEPEX motor control, check the reverse signal input on the controller.
On a series wound motor control, a bad reverse contactor is the most probable cause of the problem.
Switch to reverse and check voltage on the reverse control wire. If not B+, replace the F/R switch. If
B+, turn off the key switch, disconnect batteries, disconnect power terminals on the F/R contactors,
check the resistance across N.C. power terminals of the reverse contactor. If not 0 ohm, change the
reverse contactor. If 0 ohms, switch to forward and check the resistance across the forward N.O. power
terminals. If not 0 ohms, change the forward contactor.
- 19 -
Maintenance
REVERSE ONLY
On a SEPEX motor control, check the forward signal input on the controller.
On a series wound motor control, a bad forward contactor is the most probable cause of the problem.
Switch to forward and check the voltage on the forward control wire. If not B+, replace the F/R switch.
If B+, turn off the key switch, disconnect batteries, disconnect power terminals on the F/R contactors,
check the resistance across N.C. power terminals of the forward contactor. If not 0 ohm, change the
forward contactor. If 0 ohms, switch to reverse and check the resistance across the reverse N.O. power
terminals. If not 0 ohms, change the reverse contactor.
TRAVEL AT REDUCED SPEED
Check batteries.
Turn off all switches and disconnect charger. Wear face shield and gloves. Do not disturb any
battery connection to avoid sparks. Check the specific gravity of each cell. Cold batteries,
highly discharged batteries or dead cells are the most frequent causes of reduced travel speed.
Check potentiometer.
Turn off the key switch, disconnect potentiometer terminals. Check the resistance between
terminals.
Other causes of lower speed:
dragging brakes;
cold temperature (higher differential oil viscosity).
INTERMITTENT OPERATION
A bad potentiometer is the most probable cause of the following:
acceleration is not constant;
maximum speed is erratic;
sudden stop after a bump or shock;
erratic starts, requiring several pedal cycles.
A bad F/R contactor is also a probable cause of the following:
sudden stop after a bump or shock;
would not start to move at times.
Erratic starts could also be the cause of a misadjusted potentiometer or micro-switch; the pot signal
must be less than 50 ohms when the micro-switch turns on.
PMC has an HPD safety feature that prevents the vehicle from moving if the accelerator pedal is
depressed before the key switch is ON and seat switch is activated.
PMC may also have an SRO safety feature that prevents the vehicle from moving if the F/R switch is
activated before turning on the key switch and activating the seat switch.
The vehicle stops on a steep and long ramp or while towing a heavy load: the circuit breaker has open
to prevent motor overheating and will reset automatically after one minute. The PMC is also equipped
with an internal thermal protection that cutback the current until the PMC has cooled down.

Maintenance
NO MOTION
Make sure that the PMC surface is clean and dry; check the terminal areas. Dust Particles or acid
contamination, can create current leaks and cause a PMC malfunction.
Check F/R switch
Turn on the key switch and set to forward. Check voltage between the forward terminal and the
– terminal on the battery gage, check voltage between the reverse terminal and the – terminal on
the battery gage; if both B+, replace the F/R switch.
Check switches and wiring
Disconnect control terminals on the PMC and check all control signals. If a switch pin does not
read B+, check wiring or replace the switch.
Check potentiometer
Turn the key switch to OFF, disconnect potentiometer terminals. Check the resistance across
terminals: if not within the recommended limits, adjust or replace the potentiometer. Check for
shorts between potentiometer wires and vehicle frame; resistance should read at least 1
megohm.
Check main contactor or solenoid
Check voltage across power terminals; if not B+, check circuit breaker or replace the solenoid.
Turn to on the key switch and activate the seat switch. Check voltage across the coil terminals;
if not B+, check wiring and interlock switches. Check resistance across power terminals; if not
0 ohms, replace the solenoid.
Check circuit breaker and SEPEX DIODE
Before replacing the circuit breaker, check for shorts in the power circuit and check the SEPEX
diode in the power circuit using a diode tester. If no such instrument is at hand, use an
ohmmeter: the reading should be weak in one direction and strong in the other way.
Check the resistance across the circuit breaker. If not 0 ohms, replace the circuit breaker.
Check PMC
First disconnect battery B+ and B-, then PMC B+ and M-. Check the internal diode between B+
and M- terminals using a diode tester. If no such instrument is at hand, use an ohmmeter: the
reading should be weak in one direction and strong in the other way. If the internal diode is
defective, the PMC must be replaced.
Check the Motor
First disconnect battery B+ and B-, disconnect power terminals and check the motor armature
and field for opens.

2 — INSTALLATION & WIRING: Controller
WIRING: Standard Configuration
Figure 3 shows the typical wiring configuration for most applications. The
interlock switch is typically a seat switch, tiller switch, or foot switch.
Standard Power Wiring
Motor armature winding is straightforward, with the armature’s A1 connection
going to the controller’s B+ bus bar and the armature’s A2 connection going to
the controller’s M- bus bar.
The motor’s field connections (F1 and F2) to the controller are less obvious.

DIAGNOSTICS AND TROUBLESHOOTING
The 1244 controller provides diagnostics information to assist technicians in
troubleshooting drive system problems. The diagnostics information can be
obtained by observing the appropriate display on the handheld programmer, the
fault codes issued by the Status LED, or the fault display driven by the controller’s
Fault 1 and Fault 2 outputs. Refer to the troubleshooting chart (Table 5) for
suggestions covering a wide range of possible faults.
PROGRAMMER DIAGNOSTICS
The programmer presents complete diagnostic information in plain language.
Faults are displayed in the Diagnostic Menu (see column 2 in the troubleshooting
chart), and the status of the controller inputs/outputs is displayed in the Test
Menu.
Accessing the Diagnostic History Menu provides a list of the faults that have
occurred since the diagnostic history file was last cleared. Checking (and clearing)
the diagnostic history file is recommended each time the vehicle is brought in for
maintenance.
The following 4-step process is recommended for diagnosing and troubleshooting an inoperative vehicle: (1) visually inspect the vehicle for obvious
problems; (2) diagnose the problem, using the programmer; (3) test the circuitry
with the programmer; and (4) correct the problem. Repeat the last three steps as
necessary until the vehicle is operational.
Example: A vehicle that does not operate in “forward” is brought in
for repair.
STEP 1:
Examine the vehicle and its wiring for any obvious problems,
such as broken wires or loose connections.
2: Connect the programmer, select the Diagnostics Menu, and
read the displayed fault information. In this example, the display
shows “No Known Faults,” indicating that the controller has not
detected anything out of the norm.
STEP
STEP 3:
Select the Test Menu, and observe the status of the inputs and
outputs in the forward direction. In this example, the display shows
that the forward switch did not close when “forward” was selected,
which means the problem is either in the forward switch or the switch
wiring.
STEP 4:
Check or replace the forward switch and wiring and repeat the
test. If the programmer shows the forward switch closing and the
vehicle now drives normally, the problem has been corrected.

LED DIAGNOSTICS
A Status LED is built into the 1244 controller. It is visible through a window in
the label on top of the controller. This Status LED displays fault codes when there
is a problem with the controller or with the inputs to the controller. During normal
operation, with no faults present, the Status LED flashes steadily on and off. If the
controller detects a fault, a 2-digit fault identification code is flashed continuously
until the fault is corrected. For example, code “3,2”—welded main contactor—
appears as:

☞
CAUTION
Working on electric vehicles is potentially dangerous. You should protect
yourself against runaways, high current arcs, and outgassing from lead acid
batteries:
— Some fault conditions could cause the vehicle to run out of
control. Jack up the vehicle and get the drive wheels off the ground before
attempting these procedures or any other work on the motor control
circuitry.
RUNAWAYS
HIGH CURRENT ARCS — Electric vehicle batteries can supply very high power,
and arcs can occur if they are short circuited. Always open the battery circuit
before working on the motor control circuit. Wear safety glasses, and use
properly insulated tools to prevent shorts.
— Charging or discharging generates hydrogen gas,
which can build up in and around the batteries. Follow the battery
manufacturer’s safety recommendations. Wear safety glasses.

CONNECTIONS: Low Current
Two 1/4" push-on terminals are provided for the throttle inputs. If your
controller has a voltage throttle input, there will be only one throttle terminal.
A 6-pin low power connector molded into the right side of the controller
face provides the low power logic control connections—KSI input, forward/
reverse contactor output, bypass contactor output (optional), emergency reverse
(optional), and forward and reverse inputs.

Plug diode to motor armature
The cables used for the battery and motor connections must be heavy enough to
carry the high current required. Rubber insulated welding cable is convenient to
work with because of its flexibility.
Connections to the controller bus bars should be made with lugs suitable for
the cable used, fastened by M8 (5/16") bolts and nuts. When tightening the
bolts, two opposing wrenches should be used. Failure to use the doublewrench technique could cause undue strain to be placed on the internal connections, and could also result in cracked seals around the bus bars.
WIRING: TYPICAL INSTALLATION
Curtis PMC 1204X/1205X/1209/1221 controllers are designed to satisfy the
requirements of material handling applications using series motors. Figure 8 is a
schematic diagram of the installation shown in Figure 7. Wired this way, the
vehicle will plug brake if the direction is changed with the vehicle moving and the
throttle applied. Reversing is accomplished via a forward/reverse changeover
contactor or two single-pole, double-throw (2×SPDT) contactors. Coil suppression diodes should be used on the main and forward/reverse contactors.
KSI Wiring
The keyswitch input (KSI) circuit includes inputs from the keyswitch and from
the various interlocks. The controller KSI is used to turn the controller on and off.
KSI is turned on by connecting it to battery B+. Any positive voltage greater than
about 8 volts will turn on the controller, but usually the full vehicle battery voltage
is used.
In its simplest form, KSI is operated by a keyswitch that turns the vehicle off
and prevents unauthorized use. The keyswitch should also turn off the main

contactor and the forward/reverse contactors. This will act as a safety feature by
removing power from the motor control system when the keyswitch is off.
Interlocks (seat switches, battery charger interlocks, etc.) should be wired in
series so that they turn off the controller KSI and the contactors. An SRO
interlock (a seat switch, for example) must be wired in order to implement the
optional SRO feature.
Forward/Reverse Wiring
The forward/reverse wiring schemes described here all assume the power wiring
shown by the heavy lines in Figure 8. Some vehicles, especially those previously
using older, resistor-type controllers, may reverse the motor armature rather than
the field winding. Be careful if you are replacing this type of controller. When
using the Curtis PMC controller it is essential that the field be reversed and
that the armature be connected directly to the controller’s B+ and A2
terminals, because the plug diode inside is connected to these terminals.

MAINTENANCE & ADJUSTMENT
Curtis PMC 1204X/1205X/1209/1221 controllers and potboxes require only
minimal maintenance if properly installed. NOTE: The controllers are sealed and
thus are not field serviceable.
CONTROLLER
Maintenance
☞
CAUTION
It is recommended that the following two steps be performed occasionally. First
remove power by disconnecting the battery, and discharge the capacitors in
the controller (with a light bulb or a 2–10 Ω, 25 W resistor connected for a few
seconds across B+, B-). Follow good safety practices: get the vehicle drive wheels
off the ground, wear safety glasses, and use insulated tools (see page 2).
1. Make sure the electrical connections to the controller (and to the motor,
contactors, etc.) are tight. When checking the controller bus bar connections for tightness, use two opposing wrenches. This double-wrench
technique will help avoid putting stress on the bus bars, which could
crack the seals. Always use insulated wrenches.
2. Inspect all seals at the front and back of the controller. If necessary, use
a moist rag to wipe these areas clean enough so that you can see the seals.
Look for cracks and other signs of seal damage.
If the seals are intact, clean the controller thoroughly either by
washing it off or by wiping it clean with a moist rag. Power must not be
reapplied until the controller terminal area is completely dry.
If the seals have been damaged, there are several possible causes.
Perhaps the double-wrench technique was not used when the cables were
installed. Perhaps the vehicle’s environment requires that the controller
be better protected: either by mounting it in a different location, or by
installing a protective cover.
Damaged seals can lead to faulty operation. We strongly recommend replacing controllers that have faulty seals.
Adjustment
Some controllers allow adjustment of the plug braking current, current limit, and
acceleration rate settings. The adjustment pots on these models are located as
shown in Figure 16.

MAINTENANCE & ADJUSTMENT
Fig. 16 Adjustment pots.
CURRENT LIMIT ADJUST
(CCW = lower current limit)
PLUG CURRENT ADJUST
(CW = higher plug current)
ACCELERATION RATE ADJUST
(CW = faster acceleration)
Use the following adjustment procedure. The keyswitch should be off during
adjustment.
1. Remove the socket head screw (1/8" Allen) for the adjustment you
want to make.
2. Adjust the internal potentiometer using a small insulated screwdriver
(available from Curtis).
3. Replace the socket head screw and nylon seal washer. To prevent
stripping, do not over-tighten.
POTBOX
Maintenance
Potbox maintenance is similar to controller maintenance: inspect for integrity of
connections and mounting, and clean (with a moist rag) as required.
Adjustment
Curtis PMC potboxes are factory set and rarely require user attention. To test and
adjust, connect an ohmmeter to the potbox wires and use this procedure:
1. With the spring holding the lever arm against the return stop, the
resistance should be less than 50 ohms. Slowly move the lever. If the
resistance abruptly starts to increase when the lever is 3 mm (1/8") from
the stop (1.5 mm [1/16"] for potboxes without the microswitch), no
adjustment is needed.
Curtis PMC 1204X/1205X/1209/1221 Manual

23
MAINTENANCE & ADJUSTMENT
2. If adjustment is required, loosen the screw holding the lever on the pot
shaft. Use a screwdriver to rotate the pot shaft slightly with respect to
the lever. Recheck the point at which the resistance starts to increase
and continue making adjustments until the increase starts at 3 mm
(1/8") [at 1.5 mm (1/16") for potboxes without the microswitch].
When adjustment is correct, tighten the screw holding the lever on the
pot shaft, then recheck to see that this action did not disturb the
adjustment. Make sure that the lever is still seated down on the pot shaft
below the slight bevel on the end of the shaft.
3.
Check the resistance with the lever pushed all the way to the other stop.
It should be between 4500 and 5500 ohms. If it is outside this range,
the potbox is faulty and should be replaced.
4.
For potboxes equipped with a microswitch, check for correct switch
operation. Use an ohmmeter, or simply listen for the slight click the
switch makes. It should operate when the lever is 1.5 mm (1/16") from
the return stop. If it does not, adjust by loosening the two screws
holding the slotted microswitch mounting plate to the stop spacers and
moving the plate. Recheck the switch operating point after tightening
the screws.

BATTERY DISCHARGE INDICATOR (HOBBS)
This indicator monitors :
the residual capacity of batteries;
operating hours;
status of service down counter.
The residual capacity of the battery is monitored via an 8-LED bar display. When the left red LED
lights, the batteries must be charged to avoid damage. The LED display starts flashing as a pre-warning
signal. The lower voltage limit is adjustable via potentiometer “M” on the rear.

In order to activate a new adjustment, the unit has to be reset :
2.35V/cell reset voltage with battery remaining in vehicle;
2,09V/cell reset voltage after battery has been disconnected.
To maintain a good battery performance, it is recommended to limit the discharging to 80% of the
battery capacity. The recommended setting for 6V batteries is F and the recommended setting for an
industrial battery is K.
An internal relay can prevent overdischarging and damaging the batteries. The relay can be wired to
cut off the reverse direction, or energize an N.C. relay and alarm.
Turning off and on the vehicle will override the protection for 30 sec.
The current status (remaining operating hours before maintenance) of the service down counter is
indicated for a period of 5 seconds after the key switch is turned on. When it is down to 0, the display
flashes. After the maintenance, reset the counter: depress the button “R” on the rear. The service
counter is factory programmable only.
