When To Use This Document

Use this document when you need to measure the power system voltage on a Jaco EVO Cart, as instructed by a Jaco Support Technician. This will help us pinpoint the specific issue and quickly resolve the issue.


Prerequisites

  • It is recommended to be near a wall AC outlet during the troubleshooting. 
  • Always unplug the recharge cord from the wall outlet before disconnecting any wire connectors on the power system.
  • Record battery voltage measurements as instructed to pinpoint failed component. If a voltmeter is not available, JACO can provide a Jvolt-kit. The kit consists of a voltmeter with 10 pin adapter cable. E-mail us at support@jacoinc.com to request a Jvolt-Kit.


Tools Needed

  • Volt Meter


Process

Open Inverter Bay

Loosen thumb screw to open the right side inverter cover

Configure Volt Meter

Voltage Meter Settings

  • Set Voltmeter to measure DC(Direct Current) as shown
  • Verify the BLACK meter lead is plugged into COM and RED meter lead is plugged into V
  • If voltmeter battery is low, it may give incorrect readings

    

OCV & Recharge Voltage

Open Circuit Voltage (OCV):

  1. Insert the RED meter lead into the Bottom-Right located on the battery connector as shown above.
  2. Insert the BLACK meter lead into the Bottom-Left position located on the battery connector as shown above.
  3. Record this reading as OCV = ____

Charge Voltage(CV):

  1. Keep the meter leads in place as the Battery OCV step. Plug the Recharge Cord into the Wall Outlet.
  2. Record this reading as CV= ____
  3. Does the FAN spin? ____

Note: Recharge voltage should be higher than the Battery Voltage.
