Powering Off (Storage and Transport)

The wheelchair should be powered off completely if you do not expect to use it for a longer period of time (more than 24 hours) or if it is to be transported. This procedure can also be used to disconnect the battery from the system in the event of an electrical fault or smoke being emitted by the wheelchair.

  1. Make sure you are in park mode

  2. Ideally, the battery charge level is around 60-70%.

  3. Press the standby button on the control panel. The wheelchair switches off (all LEDs switch off).

  4. Turn the main switch at the back to the “off” position. This separates the battery from the rest of the system and minimises power consumption. Nevertheless, you should recharge the battery every three months to prevent excessive discharge (battery self-consumption).

Residual voltage

There may be residual voltage left in some of the wheelchair’s components for several minutes after it has been powered off. For this reason, it is normal for some LEDs to continue to emit a small amount of light.
