What will I need?
To ensure accurate calibration of the speed you will need a measuring instrument called a tachometer. We recommend using one of the following tachometers:
Note: It is not recommended to calibrate the treadmill speed using any other device as accuracy is likely going to suffer as a result. It is not recommended to use foot pods for calibration.
How to calibrate the speed
1. Switch on your treadmill and have your Tachonmeter ready
Note: Ensure you follow the tachometer manufacturer’s user’s manual to measure in km/hr using the correct attachment. If the device does not measure in km/hr ensure to convert the values accordingly.
2. On the treadmill open Settings > Advanced Settings.
3. Set the treadmill at 2kph, and make note of the value that is given by the Tachometer
4. Check if the Tachometer value is between the Min and Max value for the corresponding speed in m/min
5. If it reads outside of these values, adjust the value on the treadmill screen up by five if the value is below the Min or down by five if it above the Max
6. Repeat step 3-5 until the measured speed is within +/-0.5 km/hr of the target speed of the treadmill for 10kph and 20kph
7. Save your changes
1. Go into Settings and Select Advanced settings
2. Choose the Calibration tab
3. To automatically calibrate incline, select Automatic Incline Calibration
4. The treadmill will then automatically incline, decline and calibrate the treadmill then save the new settings
