AXE SPECIFICATIONS                                                                                    
Model number breakdown, for example the { AXE4834P } is broken down as:
  • AXE - Family name
  • 48 - First two digits = Battery String Voltage (two digits)
  • xx3x - third digit = amperage, 3=300 Amp model
  • xxx4 - fourth digit = Case size small heat-sink
  • "P" model - Denotes Plug Break, "M" denotes Momentary

Did you know?
You can program the
Controller on the bench
using a small power
supply?  

This makes life easy when
installing new units in
your cars application.

Did you know?
The AXE takes advantage
of powerful MosFET
technology to provide
high peak currents.  

This provides the
performance and torque
needed to get things
moving faster.

LED STATUS INDICATOR                                                                                
Click on image to enlarge
(large file size)
LED Status Indicator:
and used for troubleshooting.

The LED Blink Codes occur at power up, the number of green blinks indicates
the throttle configuration:  
  • 1 Green LED flash    = 0-5 kohm resistive
  • 2 Green LED flashes = 5K-0 ohm resisitive
  • 3 Green LED flashes = 0-5 Volt
  • 4 Green LED flashes = EZ-GO inductive (ITS)
  • 5 Green LED flashes = Yamaha 0-1K ohm resistive
  • 6 Green LED flashes = Taylor-Dunn 6-10.5 Volt
  • 7 Green LED flashes = ClubCar 5k-0 ohms, 3-wire throttle

Normal display status:      
  • Solid Green: Controller ready to run
  • Solid Red: Controller in programming mode (using Controller Pro)
  • Solid Yellow:  Controller throttle is wide open, controller is supplying
    max output, and is not in current limit.

Trouble Shooting:
Error code display:# of RED blinks    indicates any error conditions that might
exist:

1 Red  =  Throttle Position Sensor Over Range.  Check for open wires.
2 Red  =  Under Temperature.  Controller below -25C
3 Red  =  HPD.  Throttle hasn't gone to zero during this power on cycle.
4 Red  =  Over Temperature.  Controller over 95C
5 Red  =  Not used
6 Red  =  Battery Under Voltage detected.  Battery V < under voltage slider
7 Red  =  Battery Over Voltage detected.  Battery V > over voltage slider
