WARNING: Be sure that all electrical requirements are met as indicated in the
specifications at the front of the manual and at the beginning of this chapter
prior to proceeding.
Testing the Operation
Use the following instructions to test the full resistance of the unit.
1. Plug the power cord into a power outlet from a grounded circuit as described under Electrical
Requirements in this chapter. NOTE: Coil up the remainder of the power cord and place it out of the
way.
NOTE: Cybex recommends that the unit be unplugged when not in use.
2. Locate the on/off (I/O) power switch on the front of the stepper. Toggle it to the on position (I).
3. Observe that the control panel will illuminate and be in the Dormant Mode.
4. Hold the handrails to steady yourself while you step onto the pedals.
5. Begin stepping.
6. Press the Quick Start key. The unit begins with a long tone then the speed increases to correspond
to the program that you selected.
7. Run the unit through its full resistance range. First press the Level + key until the unit reaches its
highest speed (the display will show “150”). Then press the Level - key until the unit reaches its
lowest speed; the display will show “10”. As you step, you will feel the speed change.
8. Press Pause/End twice to end the workout review and return the display to Dormant Mode.
WARNING: Wait until all moving parts come to a complete stop before dismounting.
9. Wait until pedals come to a complete stop before dismounting the unit. Hold the handrails to steady
yourself while you step off the unit.

Setting Operation Options
1. Enter Test Mode by holding down any key while turning on (I) power. The display will read
“Step”.
NOTE: After changing any value, you must press Enter to save that value. When you press
enter the display will read “updt” (updated) to confirm your selection.
2. Press the Time key to set options, change values with Λ and V keys and press Enter to
save your selection. Each time you press Time the next set of data is displayed in the
following order:
Unit — Choices are “Eng” or “Euro” measurements. English is the default.
Scan — This turns on or off the data readout scan (unless a specific data key is pressed
during a workout). Default is on.
Time — This is the default time for time based programs if a user doesn’t re-set Time. For
example, if you press Time you can decrease or increase the set workout time up to the
amount that the Max time is set. Choices are between 20 minutes and 60 minutes. Default
is 60.
Max: — This is the maximum amount of time the stepper can run per use. You can limit
the users time or choose “none” for unlimited time. Choices are between none and 120
minutes; default is 60. NOTE: If the Max time is limited too much it may be difficult for the
user to reach their goals. For example, a user may not be able to burn 300 calories if you
limit their Max time to 20 minutes.
Idle (or Workout Review/Pause Time): — This is how long the treadmill retains and
displays your current workout data during a pause in the workout or after a workout.

Data Readouts
As you exercise, the Cybex 530S Stepper keeps track of the following data:
Distance - The total accumulated distance, in feet or meters, during your workout.
NOTE: Depending on the defaults you’ve chosen this measurement will show in
English or Metric.
Floors - How many floors you’ve climbed so far. Each floor is 10 vertical feet (or
three meters), or roughly equal to running 100 feet on level ground.
Calories - The total accumulated calories burned during your workout.
Calories Per Hour - Calculation of present workloads energy exertion in Calories per
Hour.
Metabolic Equivalent - Relates to the user’s energy expenditure. A MET is a basic
unit of measurement that is used to compare relative work between individuals and
activities. One MET is the amount of oxygen an individual consumes at rest. For
example two mets would be twice that amount. If an individual were working at four
METs he/she would be consuming oxygen at a rate equal to four times their resting
consumption. METs can be used to compare walking on a grade with running or even
to cycling and other activities. See The Workout Profile in this chapter for more information.
Speed - Current stepping speed in feet per minute or meters per minute.
Heart Rate - Your current heart rate. Heart rate will appear when a signal is
introduced. Use either the handgrips for Contact Heart Rate or a Polar compatible
heart rate transmitter.
To review accumulated data after a program: The display automatically cycles through your
accumulated workout data during the Workout Review for 20 seconds (default setting).
Displaying Heart Rate
In order to display your heart rate, you must either use a Polar compatible heart rate transmitter belt (not
included) or hold the handgrips to use Contact Heart Rate.
Contact Heart Rate - Hold the handgrips on the handlebar until a heart rate is displayed, typically less
than thirty seconds. For best results, hold the handgrips lightly and ensure that your hands contact both
the front and back sensors of each grip. NOTE: Hold your hands as steady as possible as
movement can cause interference on the contacts.
Operation
Page 3-6
Cybex 530S Owner’s Manual
Factors that can interfere with the heart rate signal include:
• excessive movement
• body composition
• hydration
• too loose grip
• too tight grip
• excessive dirt, powder or oil
• resting or leaning on the grips
Contaminant’s, such as hand lotions, oils or body powder, may come off on the contact heart rate grips.
These can reduce sensitivity and interfere with the heart rate signal. Therefore, ensure you have clean
hands when using the contact heart rate.
Polar Compatible Reception - To use this feature, a Polar compatible heart rate transmitter belt must
be worn. To view heart rate continuously, press the Scan key when the Heart LED is lit or press the
Heart key.
Use of Programs
WARNING: Obtain a medical exam before beginning any exercise program. Begin comfortably
with a lower level and progress with higher levels as you become acclimated.
You may choose from five different program categories. HR Control provides direct selection of target heart rate. Fitness Test predicts a persons VO2 max level. Three of the program categories (Hill,
Interval, and Fitness) each provide three different profiles, with twenty one levels of difficulty for a choice
of one hundred and eighty nine different pre-programmed options.
You may also use Manual Mode. With this unique combination of programs, you can tailor your
workout to achieve exactly the fitness goals you desire, including: weight loss, conditioning, endurance
or maintenance of overall health. The program choices are summarized as follows:

Cleaning Your Cybex 530S
WARNING: To prevent electrical shock, be sure that the unit is unplugged from the electrical
outlet before performing any cleaning or maintenance procedures.
When cleaning your unit spray a mild cleaning agent, such as a water and dish soap solution, on a
clean cloth first and then wipe the unit with the damp cloth.
NOTE: Do not spray cleaning solution directly on the unit. Direct spraying could cause damage to the
electronics and may void the warranty.
After Each Use - Wipe up any liquid spills immediately. After each workout, use a cloth to wipe up any
remaining perspiration from the handrails and painted surfaces.
Be careful not to spill or get excessive moisture on the console and display overlays, as this might
create an electrical hazard or cause failure of the electronics.
As Needed - Vacuum any dust or dirt that might accumulate under or around the unit.
To clean inside the unit, remove the Phillips head screws securing the covers in place. Use a vacuum
attachment or hand vacuum to clean the exposed areas and remove dirt and debris off of internal
components.
Use a dry cloth to wipe all exposed areas. Replace the covers and secure them with the screws when
finished.
Lift the rear of the unit and roll it back from its present position to vacuum the floor area underneath
the unit. When finished, return the unit to its normal position.
Contact Heart Rate Grips - Contaminants, such as hand lotions, oils or body powder, may come off
on the contact heart rate grips. These can reduce sensitivity and interfere with the heart rate signal. It is
recommended that the user have clean hands when using the contact heart rate. Clean the grips using
a cloth dampened with a cleaning solution containing alcohol. The grips are the only part of the unit
you should use a cleaning solution containing alcohol.
