Help, cant find curtis manual on website! model 1510-5251

Postby novembersierra28 » Tue Dec 01, 2009 2:06 pm

i have a CURTIS 1510a-5251 controller, I cannot find the manual or instructions on the wiring for it. I would be very grateful if someone could help me with the wiring for it, I have a serious problem as the only models that *look* physically like this are the SEPEX controllers.

I do not know if I need a contactor or not, but we'll see.Image



many thanks

Ned

Sorry Ned. It's seems that Curtis has really messed up their website site. Complete manuals used to be available for all of their controllers both current and old. Now I wish I had copied/saved those for the Curtis controllers I have. It looks like all their support is directed to email now, so just go ahead and request the data sheet and user's manual directly from them.

Hi John
I emailed them a couple of days ago, and I got no answer at all. This is frustrating, the controller's sitting waiting to be plugged in but I don't know which input terminal does the pot go into.
Frustrating.

Ned, et al.

I have the same Curtis 1510 type controller (1510A-5201, 1510A-5202, 1510A-5251, 1510A-5250, 1510-5251, 1510-5201, 1510-5202, 1510-5250 ) and sepex motor (my motor is ADC EJ4-4001; the GE motors from the Club Car Precedent IQ should also work). It took me quite a while to find a sufficient wiring diagram online. Once found, I took some time to create a new diagram that eliminates all the unnecessary, golf-cart-specific elements. The result is a fairly simple harness that allows this motor and controller to be used in anything.

A JPG of the diagram:

A PDF of the diagram:

This thread: http://www.buggiesgonewild.com/electric ... oller.html has been very helpful. I successfully got "into" my 1510A and read and modified its settings, to the limited degree that Curtis allows.
