OPERATION
3.1 Menu Structure
After the data is uploaded from the unit (controller, charger,
etc), the Main Menu appears. This is the standard Menu
for all Curtis products and the starting point for all basic
programmer functions. If there are no entries within a
Menu, then that Menu title (Program, Monitor etc) will
not be displayed.
The Main Menu looks like this:
Program
Monitor
Faults
Functions
Information
Programmer Setup
A blinking square on the left edge indicates the position of
the cursor. You are at the top-level Menu so only one column
of boxes (cursor positions) exist. As you go deeper into the
Menu structure (using the four-directional Menu Navigation
Key) additional columns will be shown.

3.2 Main Menu
The Main Menu is the starting point for all Curtis programmable products. All basic functions are readily accessed from this
point.
Program
The Program Menu may contain several Sub-Menus of parameters. The unit (controller, charger, display, etc) is setup with
specific operating conditions using the 1311 handheld programmer in this Menu. Items like max speed, current limits, timeouts, and modes are common parameters set in the Program
Menu.
Monitor
The Monitor contains a list of all the variables that can be read
and displayed. Common items are battery voltage, throttle position, input status and temperature. If the list is too long, SubMenus may be used to categorize them.
Faults
The Faults Menu provides the present status and access to past
fault history.
Functions
The 1311 handheld programmer can also be used to copy data
between units, reset data and many other functions unique to
the unit. The Functions Menu provides access to these.
Information
When the unit is connected to the 1311 handheld programmer,
information, such as software, hardware and parameter block
versions are also uploaded. The Information Menu provides a
quick overview.
Programmer Setup
There are several setup options and information that can be
accessed in this Menu.

Curtis 1311 Manual
3.3 Interface Protocols and
backward compatibility
Model 1311 has several protocols to communicate with other
Curtis products. It automatically detects the correct protocol
and begins the data upload immediately upon power up. (It is
critical that the correct cable is used).
Model 1311 Handheld Programmer also emulates the
communication of the 1307 handheld programmer. 1311 is
backward compatible with products like 1207, 1223 and other
products designed to communicate with model 1307. The
1307 protocol does not support Sub-Menus.
1307 backward compatibility is provided using the same
Main Menu structure as all other 1311 protocols. The 1307
had special Keys labeled PROGRAM, TEST and DIAGNOSTICS, which are accessed under the Program, Monitor and
Faults 1311 Menus. The 1307 MORE INFO is similar to the
1311 detail screen and Functions Menu. Changing the data
and scrolling through the list is similar between the 1311 and
the 1307.
3.4 Changing a parameter
Many Curtis products allow customization to meet designer
or user preferences. The parameters that are made available to
the OEM, dealer, service technician or end-user, are controlled by the 1311 access level (see section 1.3 Model variants). Not every parameter is visible to every user.
When the 1311 is connected to a Curtis product, a parameter
list (block) is uploaded to the programmer along with the present settings. You can easily scroll through this list and
change the settings and quickly test the results. To access a
parameter, use the Menu Navigation Key to select
'Program'
Sub-Menus organize the parameter list. Scroll though the list
and press the right arrow on the Menu Navigation Key to
enter the Sub-Menu.
Curtis 1311 Manual
page 8
When a parameter is displayed, its value and units (abbreviated) will be displayed on the right of the screen. You can
change the value of the parameter by using the Data Inc/Dec
Key. Alternately, you can press the right arrow Menu
Navigation Key once more and enter the detail screen (see
section 3.1 Menu Structure for more details). A bar graph
appears as well as min and max data points. Change the parameter value by pressing the Data Inc/Dec Key (the bar graph
shows the relative value of the parameter)
1311 automatically sends the change to the unit. The new
value is set as soon as the Data Inc/Dec Key is released.
Test the system at any time, even with the unit active.
To close a Menu, Sub-Menu or detail screen, press the left
arrow on the Navigation Key.
3.5 Real-time monitoring
To aid installation, service and troubleshooting, the 1311
Handheld Programmer can request and display a variety of
real-time data from the Curtis unit. Each Curtis product has
its own list of items that can be displayed. This list is found
under the Main Menu heading
'Monitor'
Use the right arrow on the Menu Navigation Key to select the
list of monitor variables. If the list is more than one screen
long, use the Up and Down Buttons arrows on the Menu
Navigation Key to scroll through the list.
In the "list" mode, every value is periodically updated.
To view a single monitor variable at a faster rate, select a single variable from the list (using the right arrow) and a detail
screen will display. This screen will show only that variable
and the update rate will be faster.
To leave the Monitor Menu or detail screen, press the left
arrow on the Navigation Key.

Curtis 1311 Manual
3.6 Reading Faults and the
Diagnostic History file
Model 1311 allows access to the preset and past status of the
system or unit you are connected to. Each Curtis product
runs continuous self-diagnostics and will record and log an
error event in non-volatile memory. When the 1311 is connected to the unit, this log file is automatically uploaded into
the handheld programmer.
To see the present status of the unit, use the Menu Navigation
Key to select
'Faults -> System Faults'
To access this log, use the Menu navigation Key to select
'Faults -> Fault History'
The faults are shown as a code and descriptive text. If there
are multiple faults, you may have to scroll through the list
using the Up and Down Buttons on the Menu Navigation
Key.
It is useful to clear the fault history after reading it. To do
this, select
'Faults -> Clear Fault History'
You will be asked to confirm your actions. Use the
Increment arrow (+) for yes and decrement arrow (-) to cancel and not clear the Fault History.
The MC-2 systems have an additional Sub-Menu to select the
module. For example 'Faults -> Controller -> Fault History'.
Curtis 1311 Manual
page 10
3.7 Cloning and restoring the
previous programming
Cloning is the process of duplicating parameter settings from
one unit to others, making copies or "clones". You may only
clone units with the same hardware, software and parameter
block. You cannot clone the MC-2 or products using the MCP
protocol.
The special cloning functions are listed on the programmer in
the Menu
'Functions -> Settings'.
From here, you can select
'Get Settings From Controller'
This will upload the data from a unit into the 1311. Or,
'Write Settings To Controller'
This will download the present data stored in the 1311 to the unit.
This process will only work between identical models. Model
1311 will not allow cloning between different models (1228 to
1243) nor between similar models (1244-4401 to 1244-4402).
Only the data accessible by the 1311 is cloned. For example, a
User level 1311 will only clone User level data and will not
clone the OEM, Dealer or Service level data.
You may also easily restore the original settings of the unit .
Each time the programmer is connected to a unit, it uploads
the present data and stores it in a "temporary archive" memory.
You can revert back to the original settings any time during a
programming session by selecting the Menu
'Functions -> Settings -> Reset All Settings'.
Any inadvertent change of parameters can be 'undone' using
this procedure - even if you can't remember what the previous
settings were - as long as the programmer has not been unplugged and power has not been removed from the controller.

Curtis 1311 Manual
3.8 Information Displays
Besides the parameters, values and fault history, each Curtis
product contains a small file describing the basic revision
level of the product. The Information Menu provides access
to that data.
To view the product information, use the Menu Navigation
Key to select 'Information' in the Main Menu (remember to
press the right arrow to select a Menu). A screen will show
the available information. Press the left arrow to exit.
3.9 Programmer Setup
Model 1311 Handheld Programmer itself has a few items that
can be viewed, setup and customized to the user's preference.
Some useful functions are
'Programmer Setup -> Program -> LCD-Contrast'
Which allows the user to set the desired contrast level for
best viewing.
'Programmer Setup -> Information'
Which shows the current revision level of the 1311 handheld
Programmer.
