DEDICATED CIRCUIT AND ELECTRICAL INFO
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
A “Dedicated Circuit” means that each outlet you plug into should not have anything else running on that same circuit. The
easiest way to verify this is to locate the main circuit breaker box, and turn off the breaker(s) one at a time. Once a breaker has
been turned off, the only thing that should not have power to it are the units in question. No lamps, vending machines, fans,
sound systems, or any other item should lose power when you perform this test.
Non-looped (isolated) neutral/grounding means that each circuit must have an individual neutral/ground connection coming
from it, and terminating at an approved earth ground. You cannot “jumper” a single neutral/ground from one circuit to the next.
The treadmill must be grounded. If it should malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for
electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. The treadmill is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding
conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded
in accordance with all local codes and ordinances. If the user does not follow these grounding instructions, the user could void
the Matrix limited warranty.
ADDITIONAL ELECTRICAL INFO
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
For your safety and to ensure good treadmill performance, the ground on this circuit must be non-looped (isolated). Please
refer to NEC article 210-21 and 210-23. Your treadmill is provided with a power cord with a plug listed below and requires the
listed outlet. Any alterations of this power cord could void all warranties of this product.
For units with an integrated TV (like the 7xe and 7xi), the TV power requirements are
included in the unit. An RG6 coaxial cable with ‘F Type’ compression fittings on each
end will need to be connected to the cardio unit and the video source. For units with
an add-on digital TV (5x only), the machine in which the add-on digital TV is connected
to powers the add-on digital TV. Additional power requirements are not needed for the
add-on digital TV. For units with an add-on PCTV (5x only), the TV power requirements
are separate.
110 V UNITS
All Matrix 5x, 7xe and 7xi 110 V treadmills require the use of a 100-125 V, 60 Hz and
a 20 A “Dedicated Circuit”, with a non-looped (isolated) neutral/ground for power. This
outlet should be a NEMA 5-20R and have the same configuration as the plug. No
adapter should be used with this product.
220 V UNITS
6
All Matrix 5x, 7xe and 7xi 220 V treadmills require the use of a 216-250 V, 50 Hz and
a 20 A “Dedicated Circuit”, with a non-looped (isolated) neutral/ground for power. This
outlet should be a NEMA 6-20R and have the same configuration as the plug. No
adapter should be used with this product.
MX_13_T5x_T7xe_T7xi_OM_Rev1_9.indd 6-7
In addition to the dedicated circuit requirement, the proper gauge wire must be used from the circuit breaker box, to each
outlet that will have the maximum number of units running off of it. If the distance from the circuit breaker box to each outlet, is
100 ft (30.5 m) or less, then 12 gauge wire should be used. For distances greater than 100 ft (30.5 m) from the circuit breaker
box to the outlet, a 10 gauge wire should be used.
ENERGY SAVING / LOW-POWER MODE
All units are configured with the ability to enter into an energy saving / low-power mode when the unit has not been in use for
a specified period of time. Additional time may be required to fully reactivate this unit once it has entered the low-power mode.
This energy saving feature may be enabled or disabled from within the ‘Manager Mode’ or ‘Engineering Mode.’

LOCATION OF THE TREADMILL
Place the treadmill on a level and stable surface away from direct
sunlight. The intense UV light can cause discoloration on the plastics.
Locate your treadmill in an area with cool temperatures and low
humidity. Please leave a clear zone behind the treadmill that is at least
the width of the treadmill and at least 79” (2000 mm) long. This zone
must be clear of any obstruction and provide the user a clear exit path
from the machine. For ease of access, there should be an accessible
space on both sides of the treadmill of at least 24” (600 mm) to allow a
user access to the treadmill from either side. Do not place the treadmill
in any area that will block any vent or air openings. The treadmill should
not be located in a garage, covered patio, near water or outdoors.
WARNING
Our treadmills are heavy. To avoid injury and damage, use care and
additional help if necessary when moving.

­TENSIONING THE RUNNING BELT
After placing the treadmill in the position it will be used, the belt must be checked for proper tension and centering. The
belt might need to be adjusted after the first two hours of use. Temperature, humidity, and use cause the belt to stretch at
different rates. If the belt starts to slip when a user is on it, be sure to follow the directions below.
1) Locate the two hex head bolts on the rear of the treadmill. The bolts are located at each end of the frame at the back
of the treadmill. These bolts adjust the rear belt roller. Do not adjust until the treadmill is on. This will prevent over
tightening of one side.
2) The belt should have equal distance on either side between the frame. If the belt is touching one side, do not start
the treadmill. Turn the bolts counter clockwise approximately one full turn on each side. Manually center the belt by
pushing the belt from side to side until it is parallel with the side rails. Tighten the bolts the same amount as when the
user loosened them, approximately one full turn. Inspect the belt for damage.
3) Start the treadmill running belt by pressing the GO buttion. Increase speed to 3 mph (~4.8 kph) and observe the belt
position. If it is moving to the right, tighten the right bolt by turning it clockwise ¼ turn, and loosen the left bolt ¼ turn. If
it is moving to the left, tighten the left bolt by turning it clockwise ¼ turn and loosen the right ¼ turn. Repeat Step 3 until
the belt remains centered for several minutes.
TIGHTENS RIGHT SIDE OF ROLLER
TIGHTENS LEFT SIDE OF ROLLER
BELT IS TOO FAR TO THE RIGHT SIDE
BELT IS TOO FAR TO THE LEFT SIDE
4) Check the tension of the belt. The belt should be very snug. When a person walks or runs on the belt, it should not
hesitate or slip. If this occurs, tighten the belt by turning both bolts clockwise ¼ turn. Repeat if necessary.
NOTE: Use the orange strip in the lateral position of the side rails as criteria to confirm the belt is properly centered. It is
necessary to adjust the belt until the edge of the belt is parallel to the orange or white strip.
CAUTION
Do not run belt faster than 3 mph (~4.8 kph) while centering. Keep fingers, hair and clothing away from belt at all times.
Treadmills equipped with side handrails and front handlebar for user support and emergency dismount, press
emergency button to stop the machine for emergency dismount.

RECOMMENDED CLEANING TIPS
DECK AND BELT REPLACEMENT
CHECK FOR DAMAGED PARTS
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Preventative maintenance and daily cleaning will prolong the
life and look of your equipment.
DO NOT use any equipment that is damaged or has worn or
broken parts. Use only replacement parts supplied by Matrix
Fitness Systems.
HOW DO I CLEAN MY MACHINE?
A Use a soft, clean cotton cloth. DO NOT use paper towels to
clean surfaces on the treadmill. Paper towels are abrasive
and can damage surfaces.
One of the most common wear and tear items on a treadmill
is the deck and belt combination. If these two items are
not properly maintained they can cause damage to other
components. This product has been provided with the most
advanced maintenance free lubricating system on the market.
B Use a mild soap and damp cloth. DO NOT use ammonia
based cleaner or alcohol. This will cause discoloring of the
aluminum and plastics it comes into contact with.
WARNING: Do not run the treadmill while cleaning the belt
and deck. This can cause serious injury and can damage the
machine.
C Do not pour water or cleaning solutions on any surface.
This could cause electrocution.
Maintain the belt and deck by wiping the sides of the belt and
deck with a clean cloth. The user can also wipe under the belt
2 inches (~51mm) on both sides removing any dust or debris.
D Wipe the console, heart rate grip, handles and side rails
after each use.
E Brush away any wax deposits from the deck and belt area.
This is a common occurrence until the wax is worked into
the belt material.
F Be sure to remove any obstructions from the path of the
elevation wheels including power cords.
G For cleaning 7xe and 7xi displays, use distilled water in an
atomizer spray bottle. Spray distilled water onto soft, clean,
dry cloth and wipe display until clean and dry. For very dirty
displays, adding vinegar is recommended.
CAUTION: Be sure to have proper assistance to install
and move the unit in order to avoid injury or damage to the
treadmill.
26
MX_13_T5x_T7xe_T7xi_OM_Rev1_9.indd 26-27
The deck can be flipped and reinstalled or replaced by an
authorized service technician. Please contact Matrix Fitness
Systems for more information.
WARNING
To remove power from the treadmill, the power cord must
be disconnected from the wall outlet.
MAINTAIN LABELS AND NAMEPLATES Do not remove
labels for any reason. They contain important information. If
unreadable or missing, contact Matrix Fitness Systems for a
replacement or an authorized service provider.
MAINTAIN ALL EQUIPMENT Preventative maintenance is
the key to smooth operating equipment, as well as keeping
the user’s liability to a minimum. Maintain a clean area
around the equipment, free from dust and dirt. Equipment
needs to be inspected at regular intervals. Defective
components must be replaced immediately. Improperly
working equipment must be kept out of use until it is repaired.
Ensure that any person(s) making adjustments or performing
maintenance or repair of any kind is qualified to do so.
Matrix Fitness Systems will provide service and maintenance
training at our corporate facility upon request or in the field if
proper arrangements are made.
Clean with soap and water cleaners only. Never use solvents
on plastic parts. Cleanliness of your treadmill and its operating
environment will keep maintenance problems and service
calls to a minimum. For this reason, Customer Tech Support
recommends that the following preventive maintenance
schedule be followed.
DAILY
• Unplug the treadmill. Clean entire machine using water
and a mild soap or other Matrix approved solution
(cleaning agents should be alcohol and ammonia free).
MONTHLY
• Unplug the treadmill and remove the motor cover. Check
for debris and clean with a dry cloth or small vacuum
nozzle.
WARNING: Do not plug the treadmill in until the motor
cover has been reinstalled.

USING THE SAFETY KEY
Your treadmill will not start unless the emergency stop button is reset. Attach the clip end securely to your clothing. This
safety key is designed to cut the power to the treadmill if you should fall. Check the operation of the safety key every 2
weeks.
WARNING
Never use the treadmill without securing the safety key clip to your clothing. Pull on the safety key clip first to
make sure it will not come off your clothing.
PROPER USAGE
Position your feet on the belt, bend your arms slightly and grasp the heart rate sensors (as
shown). While running, your feet should be located in the center of the belt so that your hands
can swing naturally and without contacting the front handlebars.

MX_13_T5x_T7xe_T7xi_OM_Rev1_9.indd 30-31
Your treadmill is capable of reaching high speeds. Always start off using a slower speed and
adjust the speed in small increments to reach a higher speed level. Never leave the treadmill
unattended while it is running. When not in use turn the on/off switch to off and unplug the
power cord. Make sure to follow the MAINTENANCE schedule in this guide to maintain
optimal performance and prevent premature electronic failure. Keep your body and head
facing forward. Do not attempt to turn around or look backwards while the treadmill is running.
Stop your workout immediately if you feel pain, faint, dizzy or are short of breath.
USING THE HEART RATE FUNCTION
Your unit is equipped with heart rate pulse grips.
The heart rate function on this product is not a medical device. While heart rate grips can provide a relative estimation of
your actual heart rate, they should not be relied on when accurate readings are necessary. Some people, including those
in a cardiac rehab program, may benefit from using an alternate heart rate monitoring system like a chest or wrist strap.
Various factors, including movement of the user, may affect the accuracy of your heart rate reading. The heart rate reading
is intended only as an exercise aid in determining heart rate trends in general. Please consult your physician.
PULSE GRIPS
Place the palm of your hands directly on the grip pulse handlebars. Both hands
must grip the bars for your heart rate to register. It takes 5 consecutive heart
beats (15-20 seconds) for your heart rate to register. When gripping the pulse
handlebars, do not grip tightly. Holding the grips tightly may elevate your blood
pressure. Keep a loose, cupping hold. You may experience an erratic readout
if consistently holding the grip pulse handlebars. Make sure to clean the pulse
sensors to ensure proper contact can be maintained.
WIRELESS HEART RATE RECEIVER
WARNING!
Heart rate monitoring systems may be
inaccurate. Over exercising may result
in serious injury or death. If you feel
faint, stop exercising immediately.
BACKSIDE OF CHEST TRANSMITTER
When used in conjunction with a wireless chest transmitter, your
heart rate can be transmitted wirelessly to the unit and displayed on the
console.
Prior to wearing the wireless chest transmitter on your chest, moisten
the two rubber electrodes with water. Center the chest strap just below
the breast or pectoral muscles, directly over your sternum, with the
logo facing out. NOTE: The chest strap must be tight and properly
placed to receive an accurate and consistent readout. If the chest strap
is too loose, or positioned improperly, you may receive an erratic or
inconsistent heart rate readout.

FITNESS TEST
Your Matrix treadmill offers a variety of fitness tests-the Gerkin firefighter protocol, the WFI firefighter protocol, the Army, Navy,
Marines (USMC), and Air Force (USAF) as well as the Physical Efficiency Battery (PEB).
The Gerkin protocol was developed by Dr. Richard Gerkin of the Phoenix (Arizona) Fire Department. It is a sub-maximal
graded treadmill evaluation used by many Fire Departments across the United States to assess the physical condition of the
firefighters. The test requires constant monitoring of the user’s heart rate so the use of a telemetric chest strap is highly ....
encouraged. This test has 15 stages, with each succeeding stage increasing the treadmill speed or incline. When the runner’s
maximum heart trate is reached, based on age and gender, the test is completed. The score is calculated using the length of
time needed to reach and maintain the maximum heart rate for 15 seconds. The workout operates as follows:
WARM-UP: The warm-up is 3 minutes long and runs at 3.0 mph (4.8 kph) and 0% incline.
STAGE 1: At the 3 minute mark, the treadmill will gradually increase speed to 4.5 mph (7.2 kph). The actual test begins at
4.5 mph (7.2 kph).
STAGE 2: After one minute, the treadmill incline will increase to 2%.
STAGE 3: After one minute, the treadmill speed increases to 5.0 mph (8.0 kph).
STAGES 4 THROUGH 15: After every odd minute, the treadmill incline will increase by 2%. After every even minute, the
treadmill speed will increase by 0.5 mph (0.8 kph). Once the user’s heart rate exceeds the target heart rate (85% of
maximum as determined by the equation (220-Age)*%=target heart rate zone), the individual continues the evaluation for
an additional 15 seconds. During the 15 second period, the evaluation remains at the stage where the target heart rate is
exceeded, without any change to speed or incline. If the heart rate does not return to or below the target heart rate, the
evaluation ends and the final evaluation stage is recorded. If the heart rate returns to or below the target heart rate, the
program continues at the point where it would have been had the program not stabilized for 15 seconds.
TEST COMPLETION: The test is completed when user heart rate exceeds the target for more than 15 seconds or the
user completes all 15 stages, whichever occurs first. The treadmill will enter a cool down cycle for 3 minutes at 3.0 mph
(4.8 kph), 0% incline.
Note: Programs may vary based on model and default settings.
