RXV Curtis Controller date code decipher
 
I am trying to determine if my Curtis controller is an early or late 2012 manufacture. I have a 2012 RXV and the controller label reads:
Date Code 12034P
Voltage 48V
Current 235A
Model 1206AC-5201
S/W 12

I have checked the Curtis site and had no success.

Thanks in advance for any help provided.

12034 means the year of manufacture is 2012, and day of manufacture is the 34th day in that year.

Thank you Mr. Boyce.

Is this controller one of those that you would be able to modify? I thought I read that the early 2012 units were not able to modify the programming. Although I have been reading so much on the topic I might be confused.

Is your heat shield silver or black. Above the controller there is a plastic black cover right next to it is a metal heat shield.

It is an early Curtis RXV controller, so yes it is reprogrammable. The Danaher controllers used in RXVs manufactured prior to feb 23rd of 2012 are the ones that are not desired. Curtis controllers supplied in the 2020 RXVs are also not desired, if you wish to retain the new cart factory warranty.

I will double-check in a while. I am not with the cart right now. Thanks for the help.

I would like to send the controller to you for modification, if you are still offering that option. I need to get some more posts before I am able to PM.

Thanks, Tim

Can you be a little more specific why?
If the whole cart is present can the new one 2020 be programed like the 2019 model?
