The Trackmaster TMX428CP control panel offers greater control over the user of the TMX428 treadmill. By default, the TMX428CP includes 5 pre-programmed stress protocols, 5 pre-programmed workouts, and the ability to add up to 5 custom programs with 10 stages each.
The control panel allows the treadmill to be operated in diagnostic mode (interfaced with a stress computer) or non-interfaced, independent mode. When the interface is active, only the emergency stop buttons on the controller are enabled. Once the computer program is closed, the controller reverts to full functionality.
In manual mode, the large, bright display shows Speed, Pace, Elapsed Time, Elevation, Distance, Calories, METS, Heart Rate and Target Heart Rate (user defined). Calculations are determined by ACSM formulas based on user weight, age and gender.
In pre-programmed or user programmable mode, the display will prompt the user to enter required data and will graphically display progress in the mode selected. If fitness or user defined modes are selected, elevation and speed can be adjusted when in use; the stress protocols cannot be adjusted.
