1. General information
Pulse Monitor is an application designed for computers running Microsoft Windows™
XP, Vista, Windows 7,8
,8 and 10 operating systems. It allows you to control the heart
rate off participants in Fitness clubs and indoor cycling.
A trainer conducting fitness classes has a preview of the current parameters of each
participant in the group. This allows to properly adjust load intensity for a given
organism depending on an individual capacity of lungs, heart or the current fatigue
state. Pulse Monitor enables you to continuously monitor
monito 30 training participants.
Each of the ANT + heart rate monitors, put on the participant’s chest emits a digital
signal that is received by the application by means of a compatible antenna. ANT +
Heart Rate Monitors should be within 10 meters from the receiver.
The measurement results are displayed on the monitor screen. The screen of the
training can also be presented on the large LCD TV after being connected to a
computer via RGB or HDMI link.
In order for the system to work an antenna is required - ANT+ signal receiver and bels
with pulse sensors for participants.
participants Training sets, as well as single pieces of equipment
can be purchased in the store on www.pulsemonitor.pl. A list of ANT+ compatible
can also be found on www.thisisant.com/directory.

2. Installation
lation and updates
Installation comes down to downloading and running the installer package. The
installation process will run automatically.
Note: Do not connect the receiver to a USB port before the complete installation.
Once the installation process is finished, you can connect the receiver
receive to any USB
port and start using the system.
The application periodically checks whether a new version of the program has come
out. In the case it found the new version, while running the program, the user is asked
to carry out an automatic update of the application. It is recommended to perform
each upgrade, because they introduce a number of improvements. Automatic
update is associated with downloading of a certain amount of data from the
Internet.
Before starting to use the system during trainings, enter
enter the data of the participants
(they will be chosen to participate in the classes) and pair (enter in the register of the
application) belts with pulse sensors.
3. Fitness club data configuration
After finishing the classes, participants who were provided
pro
with e-mail
mail addresses can
receive reports with charts presenting the course of trainings and basic training data.

There is a possibility of setting the name of the club, location and logo, which will be
located in the header of the report in a PDF format.
Configuration of these parameters can be done by selecting the top menu:

Before purchasing the heart
heart rate monitor, make sure the retailer supports this
standard.

4.2.
Pairing of devices
In order to be able to receive signals from individual heart rate belts, they must be
paired in the Pulse Monitor system. Each device has a unique number (ID) consisting
of a number of digits, according to which it is recognized by the application.
Adding more heart rate monitors is possible after pressing the "Devices" button on the
main screen or by selecting the menu:
Tools → configuration.
Each paired device must be assigned a name, which will facilitate their
thei identification
in the allocation of them to individual participants.
Some heart rate monitors (unfortunately, very rarely) have IDs printed mostly on the
back of them, you can then manually enter the device number and assign a name
to it.
Tip: It is recommended
commended to use consecutive numbers
n
from 1 upwards as choosing a
name for a device. It is worth to write the number using a permanent marker or stick
with a tape to the heart rate monitor.
If the device is not assigned with ID number, use a scanning devices option. Once
scanning is initiated („Scan for devices” button),
button) the program is listening to register
signals coming from unknown heart rate monitors.

will appear on the screen below. You can then click on the number – it will be
rewritten to the window of adding a new device and assign it an individual name.
name
Most heart rate monitors begin to emit signals only after putting them on the
participant’s chest.. Before pairing a new device the
he heart rate monitor will make sure
that the belt was put on the chest and that it adheres well to the body. Contact spots
of sensors and the skin should be moistened with water. Heart Rate Monitor should be
located no more than 10 meters from the receiver.
receive
Tip: While pairing new devices use only one belt to make
make sure that you are assigning
the appropriate device.
5. Management of participants database
While creating a participants a trainer can quickly select them for training sessions he
will be running in the future. The management of participants database is done by
clicking „Participants” button located on the main
ma screen.
In order to add a participant the trainer gives his name and nickname. The
nickname appears on the screen during an ongoing training
trainin session.
session In addition, he
enters the age of the participant and physical data, such as weight and height.
These parameters are used to estimate the maximum heart rate of the participant. If
the participant knows his maximum heart rate (measured e.g. during the training
session), you can enter it manually here. On the basis of the physical data, the
amount of calories
alories burned during each workout is also calculated.
If the participant’s e-mail
mail address had been entered, they will be able to receive the
report in a PDF format on the course of the training session.
Editing of participant data occurs in the left box by selecting it from the list on the
right. Removing the participant’s name takes place after right-clicking
right clicking and selecting
"Delete".
Adding participants may also be carried out with the very level of the training
session, as will be discussed below.

of new device by pressing the "plus" button behind the
he checkboxes.
Adding of another person to the classes is confirmed by the appearance of their
name on the list of participants below. The maximum heart rate of the participant is
also included on the list.
By right-clicking of the mouse we can quickly edit the data of the person (e.g.
correction of his maximum heart rate) or remove it from the list of the participants.
After selecting all the participants of the classes, click on the button "Go to the
training" located next to it – then appears the screen with signal lights presenting

Check the belt – this message appears when the belt is within the antenna’s
reach, however, probably it does not adhere exactly to the chest of the
participant. In this case, the belt supports the recently registered value of the
pulse. The application displays this message for a long time if the pulse of the
participant does not change.
No signal – this message appears when the belt does not transmit a suitable
signal. The reason for this may be an incorrect pairing of the belt, the belt is
not used during training or the battery in it got exhausted battery.
