Rowperfect PC interface

With the Rowperfect PC interface, you add an extra dimension to your training sessions on the Rowperfect Classic. The interface, combined with the "Light" version of
SEAN : Session Analysis, calculates over 25 values for every stroke made, and presents a real-time force curve on the computer screen.

The Rowperfect PC interface comes with mounting brackets, a standard serial cable and the Rowperfect for Windows software on CD-ROM. An optional USB Serial adapter is also available.

Owners of the old CARE/DOS interface can upgrade their interface to be used with Rowperfect for Windows, the so called "Rpw upgrade". For this, the firmware has to be updated, meaning the interface has to be sent to the Netherlands for a day.

To read heart rate information during your workout, a standard
Polar transmitter belt and watch can be used. To add this data to your training session, the Rowperfect PC interface needs a Polar receiver. This receiver is compatible with several types of Polar transmitter straps. Click here for an overview of supported transmitter types.

The Polar receiver can only be used in combination with the Rowperfect PC interface. It comes with installation instructions.
