I. Vehicle Information
The range will vary based on your driving habits and application. Typically, standard vehicles will run for 50 - 80 kms on level ground with a full charge.
Typically, for standard vehicles the full charge takes about 6 to 8 hours.
Chargers can be plugged into standard household current 230V.
We recommend that you the check battery water level monthly, in summertime when the temperature is over 30 degrees, it is recommended to check battery water level weekly, and fill as needed.
Depending on the application, we have seen our vehicles last 15 years and longer.
Yes, we offer many different enclosed vehicles.
Please contact us for our warranty statement, we send it to you on request.
Available upon request only. This must be quoted through us to the supplier of the vehicle.
II. Tech Support
New batteries require a break-in period of up to 40 cycles. The batteries will not have their full capacity during this time and may require longer charging times. It is not unusual for charge times to exceed 15 hours with new batteries.
The Signet chargers, model HB and HBS (600-24, 1000-36 and 1000-48), will emit an audible beeping sound when there is a fault present. The HB model faults are indicated by the flashing of all three charge status lights (50%, 75%, and 100% lights). The HBS model has its own fault indicator light (labeled "FAULT"). NOTE: A flashing fault is NOT necessarily an indication of a failed charger. Refer to your vehicle's service manual for a list of fault descriptions. To obtain a manual, please contact us.
Fault codes with the format Fxxxxx (example: F01004) are displayed on the Smart View Display gauge installed on most Sevcon controlled Taylor-Dunn vehicles. For a complete list of faults and description and tips on troubleshooting, refer to your vehicle’s service manual. To obtain a manual, please contact us.
The Curtis LED fault codes can be downloaded from Curtis main website at www.curtisinst.com or you can contact us to obtain the fault codes.
Engine oil type and quantity, as well as oil-change procedures, are listed in your vehicle's service manual in the maintenance and transmission sections. To obtain a manual, please contact us.
Electrical schematics and diagrams are found in your vehicle's service manual. To obtain a copy of the schematic or the complete manual, please contact us.
There are many causes for a no travel issue on an electric powered vehicle. Troubleshooting the electrical system is mandatory to determine the cause. DO NOT replace components as a troubleshooting method. Confirm that all batteries are in good condition by performing a load test and specific gravity test. Check battery cable connections. Perform ALL required troubleshooting tests to identify the fault. A detailed troubleshooting guide is included in your vehicle's service manual. All tests in the manual assume the vehicle is wired correctly. Refer to the wiring schematic to confirm this before testing components.
Depending on the control system, there are a few possible causes for this symptom. Below are examples of our most common control systems. Refer to your vehicle service manual for more information.
There are three components that, if faulty, would result in this symptom:
- The Forward & Reverse (F&R) switch
- The wiring from F&R switch to the F&R solenoids
- The forward or reverse solenoid
- The F&R switch
- The wiring from F&R switch
- The directional transistors internal to the Sevcon controller
- A faulty forward solenoid could result in no reverse or vise versa.
- There are tests available to check the transistors. See service manual for details.
