Why the Excalibur Sport PFM?

Extreme workload range of 10 - 3000 watt

This extraordinary peak workload is extremely suitable for sports medicine and testing the strongest athletes on their anaerobic power or isokinetic capacity. Combined with the low start workload of 10 Watt this ergometer will fit everybody.

Measurement every 2 degrees

The accuracy of the PFM during the total revolution is obtained by the placement of highly specific strain gauges in the crank axis making it possible to measure the pedal force every 2 degrees during each revolution during the exercise test.

Left and right independent measurements

The PFM is not only the summation of left and right, but real left and right independent measurements. Differences between the left and right pedal movement, before and after surgery or at different workload can be detected. A real diagnostic tool!

Special Analysis and Polar Graphs

Analysis and Polar graphs are specifically designed for pedal force measurement.

LEM PFM included

The LEM software with PFM module is standard included.

Product features

Electric adjustable saddle Excalibur Sport

The position of the saddle of the excalibur sport can be adjusted in height, length and angle to suit all users. The saddle of the ergometer can be adjusted horizontally in a range of 252 mm and the saddle height in a range of 388 mm using the Control Unit or LEM. The Test Subject can be seated on the saddle while adjusting.

Electric adjustable handlebar Excalibur Sport

The position of the handlebar of Excalibur Sport is completely adjustable in height and length. The handlebar of the ergometer can be adjusted horizontally in a range of 169mm and vertically in a range of 390mm using the Control Unit or LEM software. The Test Subject can use the handlebar while adjusting.

Extreme low start up load 10W

The extreme low start-up load of 10 watts and the adjustability in small steps of 1 watt make this ergometer perfectly suitable for many different applications. The standard control unit shows multiple ergometry parameters and you can determine your specific default setting and start-up menu.

Low noise

Due to accurate manufacturing and the careful choice of materials the product has an extremely low noise level.

Accurate over a long period of time

The Lode ergometers are supplied with an electro-magnetic braking mechanism of Lanooy (eddy current). The biggest advantage of this braking system compared to a friction braking system is the absolute accuracy and the accuracy over time. Moreover, friction braking systems have more wearing parts.

Compatible with ECG and pulmonary devices

The Lode ergometers have digital interfaces and can be controlled easily by all known stress ECG and pulmonary devices available in the world. This is one of the reasons why the Lode ergometers are very popular worldwide.

Exchangeable pedals

The cranks of the ergometer are suitable for almost all available clip systems so cyclists can perform a test with their own favorite pedals.

Designed to be sweat-proof

The housing of the ergometer is designed in such way that sweat does not have the chance to drip into the mechanical parts and cables are protected. This ensures a long lifetime and makes the ergometer insensitive for malfunction.

LEM compatible

This product can be used with Lode Ergometry Manager (LEM) software to manage data and to apply specific protocols when a Communication card is present

RS232 connectivity

RS232 ports enable connectivity to most ECG and ergospirometry devices as well as PC’s.

Frequently asked questions

Which languages are present in the North and South version of firmware for Corival, Angio, Brachumera and Excalibur?

North: English, Dutch, German, Finnish

South: English, Spanish, Italian, French

In what range are the handlebars of the Corival and Excalibur adjustable?

The Corival handlebar is adjustable within 0-360 degrees.
The Excalibur Sport’s handlebar is adjustable in both vertical (465- 855 mm) and horizontal (229- 600 mm) direction.

Is it possible to put another saddle on the ergometer?

Yes, you can use most commercial available saddles. For the Excalibur an easy saddle exchange option is available. Please contact your service coordinator

Is it possible to control the Lode ergometers and treadmills with external CPET equipment?

Yes, you can find interface sheets for most common devices on the website at the “interfacing” tab of the product. If your CPET device is not present you can ask us to support you. In most cases we can quickly provide you with a solution.

Can the Wingate Software be purchased at a later time?

Yes, this is possible. Contact your local supplier for more information.

What is a torque factor?

The Torque factor is used to calculate braking Torque during Wingate sprinttest. Torque factor x body weight = braking Torque this is used in this test. Lode is using 0.7 as the default Torque factor for normal healthy test subjects. Athletes will need a higher Torque factor to get their optimal braking torque, women slightly lower, testsubjects with severe obesity, muscle atrophy, muscle dystrophy etc will need a lower Torque factor (see lt. Bar Or).

Can I change the contrast of the display on my Lode bicycle ergometer?

Your Lode ergometer is standard supplied with one display. The contrast of this display is factory set and can adjusted by qualified service personal only. If your ergometer is supplied with a programmable option the contrast of this display can be set as follows: go to SYSTEM PARAMETERS select SETTINGS go to CONTRAST. Change the visability according your wishes and save the changes.

Can the contrast of a single display bicycle ergometer be changed?

Yes, on the backside of the display there is a potentiometer. To have access to this potentiometer you have to remove the upper part of the control unit by removing the screws on the bottom side of the controlunit. ( see service manual for instructions) now you can access the potentiometer and adjust it according you wishes.

Is it possible to request RPM and Load data through the RS232 port while cycling in Manual mode.

Yes you can request the actual pedalling speed and power when you are cycling in Manual, Analogue or Terminal mode.
The load will only be returned when the pedalling speed is 30 RPM or more. For technical details see the Lode RS232 protocol

What is the Q factor of the Lode ergometers?

The Q factor of a bicycle ergometer is the distance from crank to crank. For the Excalibur the Q factor is simular to a racing bike meaning 147mm (+/- 3 mm).
The Q factor of the other ergometers is a little bit bigger (like a city bike), for the Corival this is 180 mm.

Can I use a RS232 to USB converter to connect an ergometer?

Yes you can. Make sure the chipset used in the converter is from FTDI to have good data acquisition.
Not sure what this means? Contact us and we will help you to get the right converter.

Which pedals are standard delivered with the Excalibur

SPD one sided, It is possible to use one side for normal (sport)shoes and the ‘click’ side for Shimano shoes.

Is Lode recommending special disinfection procedures for the Lode products due to COVID-19?

Yes, Due to the fact that the scientific research on the spread of Covid-19 is not yet conclusive Lode recommends to disinfect and clean all Lode products and their accessories (cuffs, heart rate belts, SpO2 sensors, handgrips/rails, touchscreens etc) that are in contact with the patient and or the medical personnel with a standard disinfectant as used in the hospital before and after every patient, with attention and care!

Since these agents are sometimes aggressive it might be advisable to check the effect on sensitive surfaces, like cushioning on non-visible areas. Lode will not take responsibility for discoloration due to these agents.
