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 user profile.
 A registered user uses a sign-in password or Preva™
Pass and creates a user profile.
 A registered service technician uses a sign-in password
or Preva™ Pass with extra permissions to administer
console settings.
 An administrator is always registered, uses a sign-in
password or Preva™ Pass, and has full access to the
console settings.
Changes to the Personal Information and Preference settings
are saved to a registered user’s profile. An unregistered user
can change preference settings; however, because they lack a
user profile, those changes are not saved, and apply only to
their current workout.

Getting Started
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 90 pounds (41 kg) are
detected within the speed and position limits of the feature.
Users weighing 50 pounds (22.7 kg) to 89 pounds (40.5 kg)
may not be detected depending on their speed and location.
Always be aware of and follow the console’s instructions for
proper operation.

Editing the Export/Import Channel File
Note: You will need to scan for channels before you can
export the file. If you have not scanned for channels, refer to
Channel Configurations in the preceding section.
Exporting the channel list from the fitness equipment creates
a file called channel-list.ini. This file can be used to specify
channel names in languages that are not yet supported by the
P80 console.
To export this file from your console:
1. Enter your code to view System Settings. To locate your
code, refer to Configuring the System Settings.
2. Insert a USB drive into the console.
3. On the Settings menu, touch System Settings.
4. On the System Settings menu, touch Manage Settings,
then Export to USB.
5. On the System Settings menu, touch TV Settings, then
Export/Import Channel Names.
6. Touch Export to USB. The channel-list.ini file is saved on
your USB drive in the /precor folder.
7. Remove the USB drive from the console and insert it into
your computer.
34
Operating and Maintaining the P80 Console
To edit the file and reload it:
Note: You will need a UTF-8 capable editor program to open
the channel-list.ini file. Such programs are available free on
the internet.
1.
Using the editor, open the channel_list.ini file and edit the
channel names on the right side of the equal sign. Do not
change the information on the left side of the equal sign,
or the equal sign itself.
2. Save the file and close the editor. This prevents read or
write errors to the USB drive.
3. Remove the USB drive from your computer and reinsert it
into the same console you used for your initial export.
4. On the System Settings menu, touch TV Settings, then
Export/Import Channel Names.
5. Touch Import from USB. The updated channel-list.ini file
is loaded and the Chanel Guide displays the updated
channel names.
The updated .ini file and channel configurations can be
exported to a USB drive along with other equipment settings
and uploaded to other P80 consoles mounted on the same
type of fitness equipment.
For more information, refer to Manage Settings.
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 user profile and users do not have access to them.
Both administrators and service technicians have view and
modify access rights.

Manage Settings
Use the Manage Settings feature to save your personalized
equipment settings to a USB drive, or to import new software
updates from a USB drive.
Precor recommends that you configure the P80 consoles in
your facility by sharing setting files. The easiest way to do this
is to configure one P80 console by hand for each type of
fitness equipment. For example, configure one treadmill
console, one EFX console, one AMT console, and so on.
When your configuration is complete, export the settings file
from the hand-configured console and then import this
settings file to all P80 consoles installed on similar equipment
types.
To save your equipment settings to a USB drive:
1. Insert a USB drive into the console.
2. On the System Settings menu, touch Manage Settings,
then Export to USB.
3. Touch OK to accept the export.
Note: This procedure exports the updated channel-list.ini file
as well as the larger file containing equipment settings,
network settings, and channel frequencies.
Once you have exported these settings, remove your USB
drive from the console, and insert it into P80 consoles
installed on similar equipment types to upload your
personalized settings.
To import equipment settings from a USB drive:
1. Insert a USB drive loaded with your personalized settings
into the console.
2. On the System Settings menu, touch Manage Settings,
then Import from USB.
3. Touch OK to accept the import.

The P80 console offers clear visuals and a touch-screen
layout that encourages program exploration. Multiple preset
workouts are designed to help individual users meet their
fitness goals, and the console keys and durable motion
controls are responsive and easy to use.

2. On the Language screen, select your language choice and
touch OK.
The screens will now display in your preferred language.
Using the Touch Heart Rate Feature
Note: Touch heart rate performance may vary based on a
user’s 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.
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.
Introducing Users to the P80 Console


39
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 10: 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.

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).
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.
56
Operating and Maintaining the P80 Console
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 (Newer Model AMT Only)
The newer model 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.

fitness equipment cleaning wipes (for more information, visit
www.athletixproducts.com)
CAUTION: Read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions,
particularly dilution instructions, before using any cleaner on
Precor fitness equipment. Do not use concentrated cleaners at full
strength, or acidic cleaners of any kind; such cleaners weaken the
protective finish on the equipment and void the Precor Limited
Warranty. Never pour water or spray liquids onto any part of the
equipment. Allow the equipment to dry completely before using.
Vacuum the floor underneath the equipment frequently to
prevent the accumulation of dust and dirt that can interfere
with its operation. Use a soft nylon scrub brush to clean the

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 P40 or P20 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
56 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, the power adapter is highly recommended. To
purchase the optional power adapter, check with your dealer.
Refer to Obtaining Service.
40
Assembling and Maintaining RBK 800-Series Recumbent Exercise Bikes
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 program 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.
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
Important: To maintain a constant power source, use the optional
power adapter.
Self-Powered Features
41
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.
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.
42

However, if you feel that the battery may need replacing,
check with an authorized service technician. Refer to
Obtaining Service.
CAUTION: The battery stored inside the equipment contains
hazardous materials and must be disposed of according to
Hazardous Waste Regulations. Refer to Hazardous Materials and
Proper Disposal.
