Default Alltrax controller

I have a 2003 DS Club Car IQ. I have found a used Alltrax controller "DCX500R18". Will this controller work for my cart? I know the DCX is for shunt motors and 500 is the amps. What does the R18 mean?

I would contact ALLTRAX personally and find out for sure what the R18? stands for.

I called Alltrax and the technician was out to lunch, I never called back. The controller had one label that read DCX500IQ and the other label had DCX500R18. I know that it will work for my cart, I was wondering what R18 stood for. Thanks for all the help, Greg

I am 99.99% sure that an R18 indicates a Club Car PDPLUS configuration. Mine is PDPlus and has an R18 on the end.

Any version will work for you, you just have to make sure it is programmed for the right Field Map and throttle or you will blow it up.

I've got to get me a cable to hook it to my computer so I can see what setup is already in the controller. I'm new to all this programing stuff. Can I hook this controller up to my computer before I install it in the cart or do I have to have it in the cart powered up first?

You need a USB to serial cable, with the appropriate drives, and the Alltrax Controller Pro software, the controller pro software if free but you must have a PC that runs on Windows XP. It will not run on Vista or Win 7.

Here is how to power it on a bench. Bench Power

Here is the software Controller Pro
