New Generic Software Programming Instructions


The new generic software package allows for programming of the Curtis Controller.

The motor kit when installed will be drivable, but the following instructions allow for tuning. Some adjustments may be required before operating the vehicle the first time and this manual will guide you through that process.

This new software package will be used with the 1234, 1236, 1238 or 1239 controllers. The new software package also will have integration with the Orion BMS.

The Orion BMS utilizes CAN bus to communicate to the Curtis controller. By following this link, you can view and print the byte structure for the Orion BMS.

Click on the tab to the right "Programming Instruction Ver. 5.0 and up", then click cover page to open the PDF file containing the instructions.
