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.

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 3. 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)
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.
50
Assembling and Maintaining RBK 800-Series Recumbent Exercise Bikes
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 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 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:
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
51
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.
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.
