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 1. 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

Assembling and Maintaining the RBK 815 Recumbent Exercise Bike
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:
y
y
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
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. Default pause times
are 120 minutes for the treadmill and 30 seconds for all other
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.

120 V and 240 V Equipment Designated for
U.S. Markets
Note: If you are not installing this equipment in the United
States or Canada, this section does not apply to you. You
should have received a power cable that meets your local
electrical code requirements along with the equipment. If you
need additional help with the power connections for the
equipment, contact your Precor authorized dealer.
Precor exercise equipment that is connected to an external
power circuit, such as treadmills or equipment with optional
power supplies for self-powered equipment, must be properly
grounded. In addition, Precor treadmills must be connected to
a dedicated branch circuit for power. A 20 amp dedicated
branch circuit is recommended.
Important: A true dedicated branch circuit provides discrete hot,
neutral, and ground lines to each plug. These lines must not be
looped or "daisy-chained" to any other lines in any way.
For equipment fitted with P80 consoles or Personal Viewing
System (PVS) screens, separate power connections are
required for the consoles or screens. This connection must be
independent of the circuit powering the equipment and must
also be a dedicated branch circuit. However, up to 15 consoles
or PVS screens can be "daisy-chained" on a single power
circuit. A 20 amp dedicated branch circuit is recommended
for every such chain of consoles or screens.

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.
Upright Cycle: Adjusting the Seat Tilt
The seat on the upright bike can be adjusted for comfort if
needed.
To adjust the seat tilt:
1. Use a 14 mm box-end wrench or crescent wrench to
loosen the nut beneath the seat as shown in the following
diagram.
Note: A ⁹₁₆-inch wrench can be used in place of the 14
mm box-end wrench; however, it does not fit as closely.
Figure 6: Loosening the nut

Product Owner's Manual
2. Adjust the seat tilt (up and down) as shown in the
following diagram.
Figure 7: Seat adjustment
3. Fully tighten the nut.
4. Apply pressure to the seat and make sure that it does not
move. Readjust and retighten the nut, if needed.
Important: If you tilt the seat too far forward, it will restrict
the function of the seat height adjust handle.
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.

selecting a new program from the PROGRAMS key menu and
pressing OK. All accumulated statistics are transferred to the
new program as you continue exercising.
Certain programs, such as Basic HRC and Weight Loss, are
not available for mid-session transfers due to set goals and
program preferences. If this occurs, a message scrolls across
the center display.
Note: You cannot select a different program if you are in the
cool down period or if you stop pedaling and the equipment is
in the pause mode.
Cooling Down After a Workout
Cool down periods are designed to help lower your heart rate
