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

Educating Users
This console offers an easy-to-follow display and multiple
programs to help users meet their workout needs. The keypad
lets them select data and control their workout session and
SmartRate® provides a visual aid that monitors heart rate and
workout intensity at a glance.

Product Owner's Manual
Using SmartRate®
The Precor SmartRate® technology is a precise, easy-to-read
heart rate monitor that helps users achieve their best
personalized workouts. SmartRate displays actual heart rate
information in relation to the user’s target zone for weight
loss and cardiovascular training. This feature is visible during
all workouts. In addition, some equipment includes a Heart
Rate Control (HRC) workout that automatically adjusts
intensity to keep a user’s heart rate in its target zone. For
more information, refer to Workouts.
CAUTION: Before beginning any fitness program, see your
physician for a thorough physical examination. Seek advice from
your physician to learn the target heart rate appropriate for your
fitness level.
To test your heart rate:
1. Begin a workout by pressing QUICK START, or by
selecting a preset workout followed by pressing GO.
2. Grasp the handheld heart rate sensors with both hands.
Depending on the type of equipment, the letters "Hr"
appear, or a blinking heart displays while the equipment
reads your heart rate. After a few moments, your heart
rate displays in beats per minute. The blinking segments
in the SmartRate field indicate the current zone of your
heart rate: Warm Up, Fat Burn, Cardio, or High.

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

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.
Chapter

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 1. 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)
44
Assembling and Maintaining the RBK 615 Recumbent Exercise Bike
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.
Self-Powered Features
45
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 key presses. 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 key presses during these last
ten seconds.
46
Assembling and Maintaining the RBK 615 Recumbent Exercise Bike
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.
Self-Powered Features
47
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.
48
Assembling and Maintaining the RBK 615 Recumbent Exercise Bike
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
