Excalibur sport with Pedal Force Measurement

Phased out - support up till 2029

With proven accuracy and reliability, the Excalibur sport is renowned worldwide as “the gold standard in ergometry”. The newly designed and improved Excalibur sport ergometer meets the latest requirements of modern sports medicine and research. Since athletes are becoming more and more powerful and testing more advanced than ever, this ergometer has been developed for extreme workloads up to 2500 watt! The new design ensures maximum stability at these high workloads. Thanks to the increased adjustability, versatile positioning of the test subject has never been better! This Excalibur sport has built-in modified strain gauge technology that measures forces exerted on the pedals during exercise and is supplied with angle detection. Independent measurements of forces in both left and right crank are possible. Wireless transmission of the measured forces to the PC by blue tooth. Note: this setting is supplied with LEM and LEM PFM software (various other modules are available), a computer (we recommend to use this PC only for the LEM software) and an interface cable.

FAQ

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.
During Eccentric or negative ergometry you have to resist against a workload produced by a motor instead of an electromagnet, see article prof. Folgering: Effects of positive and negative exercise on ventilatory CO2 sensitivity.
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.
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).
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.
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
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.
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.
SPD one sided, It is possible to use one side for normal (sport)shoes and the 'click' side for Shimano shoes.
