CHAPTER 2: IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
2.2 ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
The Matrix Suspension elliptical is designed to be self powered. NOTE: If an add on TV (using a bracket) or Virtual Active is added to the unit,
it must be plugged in, or the TV or VA will not operate correctly. If the Suspension Elliptical will be plugged in, follow the requirements below.
MATRIX DEDICATED CIRCUIT/ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENT INFO
All Matrix Suspension Ellipticals require the use of a 15 amp or 20 amp “dedicated circuit,” with a non-looped (isolated) neutral/ground, for the
power requirement. Quite simply this means that each outlet you plug Suspension Ellipticals into should not have anything else running on that
same circuit besides other Suspension Ellipticals (up to 3 per 15 amp circuit and 4 per 20 amp 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 Suspension ellipticals 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.
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 or less, then 12 gauge wire may be
used. For any distance greater than 100 ft from the circuit breaker box to the outlet, 10 gauge wire must be used.
For your safety and Suspension Elliptical performance, the ground on this circuit must be non-looped. Please refer to NEC article 210-21 and 210-23.
Your Suspension elliptical 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 for this product. Multiple Suspension ellipticals can be powered on one dedicated circuit. (3 units per 15 Amp and 4 units
per 20 Amp dedicated circuit.)
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS:
The Matrix E3x-02 Suspension Elliptical must be grounded. If it should malfunction or break down, grounding provides a path of least resistance
for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. The Suspension Elliptical 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.
DANGER: Improper connection of the equipment grounding conductor can result in the risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician
if the user is in doubt as to whether the product is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the product if it will not fit the outlet,
have a proper outlet installed by an electrician.

CHAPTER 3: PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE
3.1 RECOMMENDED CLEANING TIPS
Preventative maintenance and daily cleaning will prolong the life and
look of your MATRIX Suspension Elliptical.
Please read and follow these tips.
• P
osition the equipment away from direct sunlight. The intense UV
light can cause discoloration on plastics.
• L

3.2 CHECK FOR DAMAGED PARTS
DO NOT use any equipment that is damaged or has worn or broken
parts. Use only replacement parts supplied by Matrix Fitness
Systems.
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. 1-866693-4863, www.matrixfitness.com
MAINTAIN ALL EQUIPMENT Preventative maintenance is the key
to smooth operating equipment. 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.
CHAPTER 3: PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE
3.3 CARE AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTION

10.4 LEVELING THE SUSPENSION ELLIPTICAL
STABILIZING THE MATRIX SUSPENSION ELLIPTICAL
The Matrix Suspension Elliptical should be level for optimum use. Once you have placed your unit where you intend to use it, raise or lower
one or both of the adjustable levelers located on the bottom of the frame. Use a 6mm Allen wrench through the access hole at the rear hinge
joint on both sides (Figure A).
