Bison 50
Straight Stairlift
repair Manual

Issue 3 - March 2005


1 Introducing
Your
Stairlift
Congratulations on becoming the owner of a Bison 50 Stairlift, which has been
manufactured specifically to meet your requirements. It has a 12-month Bison warranty
and will provide you with many years of reliable service.

It is important for your safety that you study this manual to completely familiarise yourself
with your Stairlift.

2 Main
Components
The pictures in this manual show a Stairlift on the left-hand side of the stairs. Stairlifts on
the opposite side of the stairs operate in exactly the same way.

3 Description of Operation
Your Stairlift is switched on and off using the
On/Off Holding Switch (2).

The Stairlift is moved up and down the stairs by
the user operating the Direction Control er on the
armrest (1).

For your safety, there is a slight delay between
the Stairlift changing direction or restarting in the
same direction.
When not in use please ensure that the seat
belt is kept clear of the rail.


3.1 Charging Your Stairlift
The Stairlifts batteries are recharged from charging points when the Stairlift is in its parked
position at the top and bottom of the stairs. The charging points are connected to a 30
volt power supply fed from the mains electricity.

IMPORTANT
After installation and demonstration are complete, it is important the lift
batteries are ful y charged to achieve optimum performance of the lift. The lift should be
moved to either rail charge point and left on charge for a minimum of 8 hours. This is a
one off operation, following this initial charging period the batteries will be "conditioned"
and the lift ready for normal operation.

If there is a mains electricity supply failure, or if the supply to your Stairlift is switched off, it
will continue to operate for several journeys. However, the batteries will eventually lose
their charge and the Stairlift will not operate.

To keep batteries ful y charged, the mains electricity supply should always
be switched on and the lift parked on its charge points. If the batteries have
lost their charge because the mains electricity supply has been switched
off, or interrupted, allow them to recharge for a minimum of 2 hours, before
using the lift. If the batteries are not being recharged you will see this
flashing symbol, on the fault indicator, and hear a bleep alarm.



The Symbol will stop flashing when the lift is on a powered charge point

3.2 Safe Operation
WARNING

* Do not allow children to play with the Stairlift or the remote controls.

* Ensure pets are clear of the Stairlift at all times.

* Do not exceed the safe weight limit the Stairlift is designed to carry (see the label
on the carriage).

* Always use the seatbelt.







Before operating your Stairlift, ensure that
there are no obstructions on the staircase. The
Stairlift is fitted with seven safety edges:

1 & 2 - each side of the carriage.

3 & 4 - each side of the footrest.

5 - under the footrest.

6 & 7 - each side of the carriage above the rail.

If these encounter any obstruction, the Stairlift
will stop immediately. Move the Stairlift back in
the opposite direction and remove the
obstruction.
