SPACING—The below minimum spacing
recommendations are based on a combination of the
ASTM (U.S.) voluntary standards and EN (European)
regulations as of October 1, 2012, for access, passage
around, and emergency dismount:
– Treadmills—a minimum of 0.5 m (19.7 in.) on each
side of the treadmill and 2 m (78 in.) behind the
machine.
– Cardio equipment other than treadmills—a
minimum of 0.5 m (19.7 in.) on at least one side, and
0.5 m (19.7 in.) behind or in front the machine.
Careful consideration should be given to the
requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act
(ADA), US Code 28 CFR (see Section 305). ASTM
standards are voluntary and may not reflect current
industry standards. The actual area for access, passage
around, and emergency dismount is the responsibility of
the facility. The facility should consider the total space
requirements for training on each unit, voluntary and
industry standards, and any local, state, and federal
regulations. Standards and regulations are subject to
change at any time.
Important: These spacing recommendations should be used
when positioning equipment away from sources of heat, such
as radiators, heat registers, and stoves. Avoid temperature
extremes.
Keep equipment away from water and moisture. Avoid
dropping anything on or spilling anything inside the
equipment to prevent electric shock or damage to the
electronics.
When using the treadmill, always attach the safety clip to
your clothing before beginning your workout. Failure to
use the safety clip may pose a greater risk of injury in the
event of a fall.
Keep in mind that heart rate monitors are not medical
devices. Various factors, including the user’s movement,
may affect the accuracy of the heart rate readings. The
heart rate monitors are intended only as exercise aids in
determining heart rate trends in general.
Do not operate electrically powered equipment in damp
or wet locations.
Never operate this equipment if it has a damaged cord or
plug, if it is not working properly, or if it has been dropped,
damaged, or exposed to water. Call for service
immediately if any of these conditions exist.

Getting Started
The P80 console offers administrators and users the ability to
set default settings that meet their specific needs. To
accomplish this, the console supports settings for different
classes of users depending on their administrative rights.
A guest user exercises on a piece of equipment without
signing in or creating a Preva account.
 A registered user has created a Preva account and uses a
sign-in password or Preva Token to use that account.
 A registered service technician uses a sign-in password
with extra permissions to administer console settings.
 An administrator is always registered, uses a sign-in
password and has access to the console’s operating
settings.
Changes to the Personal Information and Preference settings
are saved to a registered user’s Preva account. An
unregistered user can change preference settings; however,
because they lack a personal account, those changes are not
saved, and apply only to their current workout.

Treadmill Auto Stop™ (Automatic Stop)
Function
Important: The default setting for this feature is ON. An
administrator can turn off this feature in the System Settings;
however, Precor recommends it remain ON.
The Auto Stop™ (Automatic Stop) feature is designed to
bring the treadmill to a gradual stop when it is not in use. This
might occur if a user steps off the treadmill before the end of
a workout and leaves the treadmill running.
Sixty seconds after a treadmill workout starts or resumes, the
equipment begins Auto Stop monitoring. If a user is detected,
then no message appears, and the selected workout
continues.
If no user is detected after an additional 30 seconds, the
console displays the message NO USER DETECTED,
STOPPING IN 10 SECONDS as notification of the pending
stop. During the display of this message, a ten second
countdown begins. If a user does not override the countdown,
the belt comes to a gradual stop after the countdown is
complete.
Note: Users weighing more than 50 pounds (22.7 kg) are
detected within the speed and position limits of the feature.
Users weighing less than 50 pounds (22.7 kg) may not be
detected depending on their speed and location. Always be
aware of the console’s instructions and follow them for proper
operation.

Workout Limits
The Workout Limit settings give you control over how the
equipment is used. Use these settings to create reasonable
limitations for equipment usage including speed, incline,
resistance, and duration.
In general, fitness equipment use is based on its popularity
with users and its availability during a site’s busiest times of
day. Settings to enforce time limits will help locations restrict
user usage during the busiest hours to provide more access to
equipment for more users.
Workout Limit settings are not associated with or saved as
part of a personal account and users do not have access to
them. Both administrators and service technicians have view
and modify access rights.

Using the Touch Heart Rate Feature
Note: Touch heart rate performance may vary based on your
physiology, fitness level, age, and other factors. You may
experience an erratic readout if your hands are dry, dirty, or
oily, or if the skin on your palms is especially thick. Wearing
hand lotion can also cause an erratic readout. In addition,
make sure that the sensors are clean to ensure proper contact
can be maintained.
Introducing Users to the P80 Console
45
To use the touch heart rate feature, place the palm of your
hands directly on the metal heart rate sensors on the
equipment’s handlebars. To ensure an accurate heart rate
readout, make sure you follow these tips:





Both hands must grip the sensors for your heart rate to
register.
It takes a number of consecutive heartbeats (15-20
seconds) for your heart rate to register.
When gripping the sensors, do not grip tightly. Keep a
loose, cupping hold. Holding the grips tightly can affect
the reading.
As you work out, your perspiration will help transmit your
heart rate signal. If you have difficulty using the handheld
grips to determine your heart rate, try the sensors again
later in the workout to see if you can obtain a heart rate
signal.
If the touch heart rate feature does not work for you,
Precor recommends that you use a chest transmitter
strap.
Figure 12: Heart rate target zones
CAUTION: Your heart rate should never exceed 85% of your
maximum aerobic heart rate. Your maximum heart rate is equal to
220 minus your age.
46
Operating and Maintaining the P80 Console
Using a Chest Strap Transmitter
WARNING Signals used by the chest strap transmitter
(or heart rate strap) may interfere with
pacemakers or other implanted devices.
Consult your physician and the
manufacturers of your chest strap
transmitter and implanted device before
using a chest strap transmitter.
Wearing a chest strap transmitter during your workout
provides steady heart rate information. For the equipment to
detect your heart rate, you must grip the touch heart rate
sensors or wear a chest strap transmitter while exercising. In
the presence of both touch and wireless data, the touch data
takes precedence and will display.
Note: To receive an accurate reading, the strap needs to be in
direct contact with the skin on the lower sternum (just below
the bust line for women).
To use a chest strap transmitter:
1. Carefully dampen the back of the strap with tap water.
Important: Do not use deionized water. It does not have the
proper minerals and salts to conduct electrical impulses.
2. Adjust the strap and fasten it around your chest. The
strap should feel snug, not restrictive.
3. Make sure that the chest strap is right-side-up, lies
horizontally across, and is centered in the middle of your
chest.
4. Test the chest strap placement by checking the heart rate
function on the equipment. If a heart rate is registering,
your chest strap placement is correct. If the equipment
does not register a heart rate, readjust the strap and
recheck the heart rate function.

Maintenance
To keep the equipment functioning properly, perform the
minor maintenance tasks in this section at the intervals
suggested. Failure to maintain the equipment as described in
this section could void the Precor Limited Warranty.
DANGER
To reduce the risk of electrical shock, always
disconnect the equipment from its power source
before cleaning it or performing any maintenance
tasks. If the equipment uses an optional power
adapter, disconnect the adapter.
Cleaning the Console and Display
The console and screen require little maintenance once
installed. Precor recommends that you clean the console and
screen before and after each exercise session.
To remove dust and dirt from the console:
 Wipe all exposed surfaces with a soft cloth that you have
moistened with a solution of 30 parts of water to 1 part of
Simple Green® (for more information, visit
www.simplegreen.com).
72
Operating and Maintaining the P80 Console
To clean the screen:
 The manufacturer recommends diluting one part 91%
isopropyl alcohol solution in one part water, or using the
91% isopropyl alcohol solution in its original strength. Be
sure to follow the solvent manufacturer’s precautions and
directions when using any solvent.
CAUTION: Potentially hazardous situations associated with
the use of isopropyl alcohol may result in minor or moderate
injury and property damage. To avoid these situations, follow
all instructions and recommendations in the manufacturer’s
Material Safety Data Sheet and product label.



Important: Do not use any acidic cleaners. Doing so will
weaken the paint or powder coatings and void the Precor
Limited Warranty. Never pour water or spray liquids directly
on the console or console’s screen.
It is important to avoid using any corrosive chemicals on the
console or screen.
Always dampen the cloth and then clean the screen. Be sure
to spray the cleaning liquid onto the cloth, not the screen, so
that drips do not seep into the console.
Apply the cleaner with a soft, lint-free cloth. Avoid using gritty
cloths.
Changing the Belt (AMT Only)
The AMT uses belts to provide motion. These belts eventually
wear and must be replaced.
When the belt stride count reaches 90 million, the message
BELTS MUST BE CHANGED SOON scrolls on the Welcome
screen. While this message appears, the AMT operates
normally.
Important: If this message displays on your AMT, please contact
Precor Customer Support for assistance.
When the belt stride count reaches 100 million (and the belt
has not been changed), the message BELTS CHANGE
REQUIRED scrolls continuously on the Welcome screen. The
input keys are not functional and the user cannot enter values
or begin a workout until the belts are changed. Please contact
Precor Customer Support to schedule a belt change.

SPACING—The below minimum spacing
recommendations are based on a combination of the
ASTM (U.S.) voluntary standards and EN (European)
regulations as of October 1, 2012, for access, passage
around, and emergency dismount:
– Treadmills—a minimum of 0.5 m (19.7 in.) on each
side of the treadmill and 2 m (78 in.) behind the
machine.
– Cardio equipment other than treadmills—a
minimum of 0.5 m (19.7 in.) on at least one side, and
0.5 m (19.7 in.) behind or in front the machine.
Careful consideration should be given to the
requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act
(ADA), US Code 28 CFR (see Section 305). ASTM
standards are voluntary and may not reflect current
industry standards. The actual area for access, passage
around, and emergency dismount is the responsibility of
the facility. The facility should consider the total space
requirements for training on each unit, voluntary and
industry standards, and any local, state, and federal
regulations. Standards and regulations are subject to
change at any time.
Important: These spacing recommendations should be used
when positioning equipment away from sources of heat, such
as radiators, heat registers, and stoves. Avoid temperature
extremes.
Keep equipment away from water and moisture. Avoid
dropping anything on or spilling anything inside the
equipment to prevent electric shock or damage to the
electronics.
When using the treadmill, always attach the safety clip to
your clothing before beginning your workout. Failure to
use the safety clip may pose a greater risk of injury in the
event of a fall.
Keep in mind that heart rate monitors are not medical
devices. Various factors, including the user’s movement,
may affect the accuracy of the heart rate readings. The
heart rate monitors are intended only as exercise aids in
determining heart rate trends in general.
Do not operate electrically powered equipment in damp
or wet locations.
Never operate this equipment if it has a damaged cord or
plug, if it is not working properly, or if it has been dropped,
damaged, or exposed to water. Call for service
immediately if any of these conditions exist.

Breaking In the Equipment
Precor equipment does not require an actual break-in period.
However, moving components such as belts, gears, and
bearings can settle while the equipment is being stored or
shipped. This can cause the equipment to operate with a
small amount of roughness or noise when it starts up for the
first time.
The equipment usually returns to smooth operation after a
day or two of normal use. If it does not, contact your dealer
for assistance. For more information, refer to Obtaining
Service.

back plate. The tuner includes a short cable adapter that
allows the television cable to be connected outside the back
plate.
To connect the television cable:
1. Pull the cable out through the lower right corner of the
back plate.
2. Route the cable counterclockwise around the outside of
the back plate.
Important: In the following step, install the cable using a
torque wrench and torque not to exceed 8 lb-in. If a torque
wrench is not available, install the coaxial cable using a plain
wrench and tighten to "snug + ¹₄ turn." You may also use a
wrench on the internal nut to help tighten the connection.
3. Attach the connector on the cable to the connector on the
tuner cable and tighten the two connectors securely using
two ⁷₁₆-inch open-end wrenches. Position both
connectors above the upper right corner of the back plate.
4. Use a plastic tie to secure the connectors to the top of the
back plate. Pass the tie through the two small holes near
the upper right corner of the back plate, then wrap it
around the connectors and tighten it securely. Cut off and
remove the protruding end of the tie.

Self-Powered Features
Important: This chapter of the manual describes Precor fitness
equipment that can operate without being connected to AC
power. This includes units equipped with P30 or P10 consoles.
However, P80 consoles must be connected to AC power through
their power supplies to operate. For this reason, this chapter does
not apply to units equipped with P80 consoles.
On self-powered equipment, the system initializes and
displays the Welcome screen when a user starts exercising. A
minimum rate of motion must be maintained for the banner to
appear, as shown in the following table. When a person meets
the requirements, the power that is generated allows the
equipment to function properly.
Table 4. Minimum requirements for operation
Equipment Rate of Motion
AMT
40 strides per minute (SPM)
EFX
40 strides per minute (SPM)
Climber
30 steps per minute
Bike
20 revolutions per minute (RPM)
Informational displays appear when the battery is low or
when the rate of motion drops below the minimum
requirements. The display explains what to do to retain
power. If the messages are ignored, the equipment begins
shutdown procedures to maintain the charge of the battery.
Refer to Informational Displays Prior to Shutdown.
An optional power adapter can be purchased and provides
sustained power to the equipment. If you plan to change the
club settings on a unit equipped with a P30 or P10 console,
the power adapter is highly recommended. To purchase the
optional power adapter, check with your dealer. Refer to
Obtaining Service.
64
Assembling and Maintaining AMT 800-Series Adaptive Motion Trainers
Informational Displays Prior to Shutdown
The equipment saves its battery charge by moving into a
shutdown mode. If the user does not maintain the minimum
rate of motion, a 30-second shutdown process begins.
In this mode, the console displays a countdown indicator and
ignores all keypresses. If no movement is detected or the rate
of motion remains below the minimum, the indicator changes
as the countdown continues.
Note: The user can resume exercising before the countdown
period elapses and the workout will continue from the point at
which it was paused.
Important: If the equipment is connected to a CSAFE master
device, it follows a slightly different shutdown process. Ten
seconds before the equipment shuts down, it ends the exercise
session and displays a reset message while it disconnects from the
CSAFE master device. It ignores all keypresses during these last
ten seconds.
Self-Powered Features
65
Symptoms of a Low Battery
If no one has used the equipment for an extended period of
time, the battery may need recharging.
Symptoms of a low battery include the following:


A flickering or erratic display
Loss of user and program information after the user stops
exercising, without any display of a workout summary or a
notification of pending shutdown
 Inability to decrease the incline setting (if any)
Important: To maintain a constant power source, use the optional
power adapter.
66
Assembling and Maintaining AMT 800-Series Adaptive Motion Trainers
Using the Optional Power Adapter
After connecting the power adapter to the equipment, plug
the opposite end into the appropriate power source (120 V or
240 V).
CAUTION: When the optional power adapter is in use, make sure
that the power supply cord does not create a safety hazard. Keep
it out of the way of traffic and moving parts. If the power supply
cord or power conversion module is damaged, it must be replaced.
The control console functions differently when the power
adapter is connected. Because the power adapter provides a
constant source of power, a user can pause for brief periods
without initiating shutdown procedures. When the pause time
limit expires and the user has not resumed exercising, the
console returns to the Welcome screen. The default pause
time is 30 seconds for all fitness equipment. Refer to the
manual for your control console for instructions on setting or
changing the pause time limit. To learn how to install the
power adapter, refer to The Optional Power Adapter Kit.
Self-Powered Features
67
The Optional Power Adapter Kit
If you purchase the optional power adapter, you must also
purchase the internal cable kit. The kit supplies the cable,
bracket, and fasteners that connect the power adapter to the
lower electronics board.
CAUTION: The internal cable kit must be installed by authorized
service personnel. Do not attempt installation on your own as you
could void the Precor Limited Warranty. For more information,
refer to Obtaining Service.
Important: If this equipment includes a P80 console, the optional
power adapter and the internal cable kit must still be installed to
provide continuous power to the base unit and support its internal
battery.
Once the internal cable kit is installed, you can plug the
optional power adapter into the equipment. Plug the opposite
end into the appropriate power source for your equipment
(120 V or 240 V). Review the safety instructions found at the
beginning of this manual before using the power adapter.
