NoblePro Elite Series Noise Levels

NoblePro SupportElite Series, InformationLeave a Comment

Introduction

This page goes over the NoblePro Elite Series noise level measurement. We know this is important to many people so we have taken the time to record the noise levels at different treadmill speeds.

How was it measured

The noise was measured at 1 m to the right of the motor cover and 1 m off the ground. The measurement environment was set in a house (so you can relate) with hard floors with no sound absorbing material in the room e.g. curtains. The measurement were taken at 1 km/hr, 10km/h and 20 km/hr with no one on the treadmill.

 

At 1 km/hr

 

At 10 km/hr

 

At 20 km/hr

What is dB?

The decibels (dB) is the unit of measure for sound levels which uses a nonlinear scale. To get an idea of dB level have a look at this chart.

Other considerations

It is important to consider that these measurements are without someone using the treadmill. The users walking and running style as a big impact on the noise levels of the treadmill when in use.

NoblePro SupportElite Series, GuidesLeave a Comment

Introduction

This page contains the instructions how to calibrate the speed for the Elite E8.0.

Note: This procedure is for advanced users and to be undertaken at one’s own risk.

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:

Sealey TA050 Digital Tachometer – Amazon Link OR Protmex Digital Tachometer (MS6208A) – Amazon Link

It is not recommended calibrating the treadmill speed using any other device as accuracy is likely going to suffer as a result.

How to calibrate the speed

  1. With the safety key in place start the treadmill and record the running belt speed using the recommended tachometer at 1 km/hr, 10 km/hr and 20 km/hr.

Note: Ensure you follow the tachometer manufacturers 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.

  1. Stop the treadmill and remove the safety key.
  2. Press the START and SPEED (-) buttons at the same time. This will bring up the advanced settings menu.
  3. Press the Programs / Training Prog button until d06 appears on the screen. This is the calibration value at 1 km/h.
  4. Use the SPEED (+) and (-) buttons to increase or decrease the value by 1 to adjust the speed.
  5. Press Programs / Training Prog button until d07 appears on the screen. This is the calibration value at 10 km/h.
  6. Use the SPEED (+) and (-) buttons to increase or decrease the value by 1 to adjust the speed.
  7. Press Programs / Training Prog button until d08 appears on the screen. This is the calibration value at 20 km/h.
  8. Use the SPEED (+) and (-) buttons to increase or decrease the value by 1 to adjust the speed.
  9. Press the STOP button once complete. This will save the values.
  10. Measure the running belt speed again with the new values saved as per step 1.
  11. Repeat steps 1-11 until the readings are within +/- 0.5 km/hr of the displayed speed.
  12. Congratulations! Your treadmill speed is now calibrated.

Troubleshooting

belt speed inconsistent at steady speed. The calibration values are out of bounds. Reset and save the default values.

speed shoots up or down. The calibration values are out of bounds. Reset and save the default values.
