18. 35 34 USING THE HEART RATE FUNCTION The 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. WIRELESS HEART RATE RECEIVER 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. BACKSIDE OF CHEST TRANSMITTER APPLY MOISTURE HERE LOGO Heart rate monitoring systems may be inaccurate. Over exercising may result in serious injury or death. If you feel faint, stop exercising immediately. WARNING! 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.

4. 7 6 110 V UNITS All Matrix 3x, 5x, 7xe and 7xi 110 V Suspension Elliptical Trainers and Ascent Trainers require the use of a 100-125 V, 60 Hz and a 15 A “Dedicated Circuit”, with a non-looped (isolated) neutral/ground for power. This outlet should be a NEMA 5-15R and have the same configuration as the plug. No adapter should be used with this product. Suspension Elliptical Trainers can be daisy-chained together with up to 4 units per 15 A dedicated circuit. Ascent Trainers can be daisy- chained together with up to 3 units per dedicated 15 A circuit. Matrix daisy-chain cord adapters are sold separately. 220 V UNITS All Matrix 3x, 5x, 7xe and 7xi 220 V Suspension Elliptical™ Trainers and Ascent Trainers® require the use of a 216-250 V, 50 Hz and a 15 A “Dedicated Circuit”, with a non-looped (isolated) neutral/ground for power. This outlet should be a NEMA 6-15R and have the same configuration as the plug. No adapter should be used with this product. Suspension Elliptical Trainers can be daisy-chained together with up to 4 units per 15 A dedicated circuit. Ascent Trainers can be daisy- chained together with up to 3 units per dedicated 15 A circuit. Matrix daisy-chain cord adapters are sold separately. GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS The unit 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 unit 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 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.’ It is essential that your unit is used only indoors, in a climate controlled room. If your unit has been exposed to colder temperatures or high moisture climates, it is strongly recommended that the unit is warmed up to room temperature before first time use. Failure to do so may cause premature electronic failure. CONSULT A PHYSICIAN BEFORE USING THIS EQUIPMENT. READ OWNER’S MANUAL BEFORE USE. CAUTION 220 NEMA 6-15P PLUG 110 NEMA 5-15P PLUG North American power cord plugs shown. Depending on your country, the plug type may vary. DEDICATED CIRCUIT AND ELECTRICAL INFO 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 ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS For your safety and to ensure good unit performance, the ground on this circuit must be non-looped (isolated). Please refer to NEC article 210-21 and 210-23. Any alterations to the standard power cord provided could void all warranties of this product. The A3x, E3x, ALB3x, A5x, E5x, ALB5x, A7xe, E7xe and ALB7xe are designed to be self powered and do not require an external power supply source to operate. Without an external power supply, the console’s start-up time may be delayed. Add-on TV’s and other console accessories will increase the time needed for start-up. An external power supply will ensure power is provided to the console at all times and is recommended when add-on accessories are used. 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. Additional power requirements are not needed for the add-on digital TV (3x and 5x). For units with an add-on PCTV (3x and 5x), the TV power requirements are separate. NOTE: ALL UNITS WITH VIRTUAL ACTIVE™ MUST BE POWERED! MX14_AEALB3x_5x_7xe_7xi_OM_Rev1_1.indd 6-7 6/4/14 11:24 AM

17. 33 32 Never operate product if it has a damaged cord or plug, if it is not working properly, if it has been damaged, or immersed in water. Contact Customer Tech Support for examination and repair. POWER If your unit is powered by a power supply, the power must be plugged into the power jack, which is located in the front of the machine near the stabilizer tube. Some units have a power switch, located next to the power jack. Make sure it is in the ON position. Unplug cord when not in use. MOUNTING THE ELLIPTICAL AND ASCENT TRAINER 1. Stand behind the unit. 2. While holding both of the rear arm rests for support, place your foot on the lowest foot pedal and push pedal down into the lowest position before stepping onto foot pedal. 3. Wait until the unit finds its resting place and then place your other foot on the opposite pedal. PROPER USAGE Your unit offers a variety of foot positions. Moving your foot to the forward most position of the foot pad increases your step height, which will create a feel similar to a step machine. Placing your foot toward the back of the foot pad decreases your step height and creates more of a gliding feel, similar to a smooth walk or run. Always make sure your entire foot is secured on the foot pad. Your unit also allows you to pedal both forward and backwards to offer a variation to your workout and to focus on other major leg muscle groups such as your hamstrings and calves. To determine proper workout position, stand on the pedal with your foot on the center of the pedal. Keep your knees slightly bent at all times. You should be able to pedal without locking your knees or shifting your weight from side to side. WARNING WORKOUT OPTIONS LOWER BODY WORKOUT To focus on a lower body workout, hold the stationary handlebars only. This will target your lower body muscles. FULL BODY WORKOUT For a full body workout, push and pull continuously on the dual action arms while pedaling. POWER INCLINE OPERATION The Ascent Trainers offer powered incline to add variety to your workouts. The incline can be adjusted using the buttons on the console. If the stop button is pressed to pause the program, the incline motor will remain at its current height. To return the incline to 0%, press GO and change the incline to 0% before dismounting. If the STOP button is held for 3 seconds to reset the console, the incline will also return to 0%. MX14_AEALB3x_5x_7xe_7xi_OM_Rev1_1.indd 32-33 6/4/14 11:24 AM

15. 29 28 RECOMMENDED CLEANING TIPS Preventative maintenance and daily cleaning will prolong the life and look of your equipment. A Use a soft, clean cotton cloth. DO NOT use paper towels to clean surfaces on the ascent trainer or suspension elliptical. Paper towels are abrasive and can damage surfaces. 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. C Do not pour water or cleaning solutions on any surface. This could cause electrocution. D Wipe the console, heart rate grip, handles, foot pads and handlebars after each use. For cleaning LCD displays, use distilled water in an atomizer spray bottle. Spray distilled water onto soft, clean, dry cloth a nd 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. 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. MAINTAIN LABELS AND NAMEPLATES . Do not remove labels for any reason. They contain important information. If unreadable or missing, contact Customer Tech Support at the number listed on the CONTACT INFORMATION page included with the OWNER’S MANUAL. 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. CARE AND MAINTENANCE HOW DO I CLEAN MY MACHINE? Clean with soap and water cleaners only. Never use solvents on plastic parts. Cleanliness of your unit 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 unit. Clean entire machine using water and a mild soap or other Matrix approved solution (cleaning agents should be alcohol and ammonia free). • Inspect the power cord. If the power cord is damaged, contact Customer Tech Support. • Make sure the power cord is not underneath the unit or in any other area where it can become pinched or cut during storage or use. QUARTERLY • Check all connecting joint areas for tightness of bolt assemblies. • Ensure that there is little, or no free play at all joint assemblies once bolts have been tightened. Installation of washer kits may be required if free play does not come out from tightening bolts. • Unplug the unit and remove plastic covers. Lubricate ball joint where the Link Arm and Dual Action Handlebar join together. A grease gun, with a needle fitting adapter is required for this (Matrix recommends using Superlube brand grease with PTFE {Teflon} additive). • Unplug the unit and remove plastic covers. Lubricate Acme screw on incline motor (Matrix recommends using Superlube brand grease with PTFE {Teflon} additive). • For 7xe consoles, enter service mode and select ‘test’. Select ‘touch calibration’ and then select ‘start’. Follow the on-screen prompts and touch the screen where indicated. To remove power from the Ascent Trainer / Elliptical, the power cord must be disconnected from the wall outlet. WARNING MX14_AEALB3x_5x_7xe_7xi_OM_Rev1_1.indd 28-29 6/4/14 11:24 AM
