The ANT+ hub is a device that allows numerous heart rate monitors to be detected and have the data transmitted to a single source - the Morpheus Coach app.

This hub is required if you want to run live heart rate training sessions in your gym and/or if you want heart rate data of your clients or members to appear on a larger screen such as a TV.

We launched the Coach App with two different versions of hubs from a company called NPE.  Due to manufacturing constraints we changed to a new hub from a company called Chileaf.  The hubs are pictured below so you can see which one you have.

The Chileaf hub has a large range and can operate over WiFi or hardwired internet connection.  

PLEASE NOTE:  The WiFi capability has not yet been activated.  We are working on this with the manufacturer.  It currently needs to be hardwired to your internet source via ethernet cable.  This article will be updated when WiFi has been enabled.


In the Chileaf CL900 box you will find the hub, two range extenders that can be screwed onto the ports on the back of the device, the USB to UCB-C power cable, and velcro to help attach it to a surface should you choose to do so.

You will need to use your own ethernet cable to plug it directly into your internet source.  Most often this gets plugged directly into the WiFi router or it gets plugged into a secondary "satellite" if you have a mesh network in your facility.


Below is a picture of how the process works.

The only requirement to use the CL900 is that the internet source that it is plugged into via ethernet cable needs to be the same network as the one that your iPad is connected to via WiFi.  Other than that, it is completely "plug and play" - there is no set up required.

The hub should be as centrally located as possible relative to the area that clients/members will be exercising.  And ideally as high off the ground as you can place it to avoid any possible signal disruptions from large exercise equipment being in the way.  The range of the hub and the heart rate monitor is between 30-40 meters in any direction.


If you have a large space, you may need 2 hubs located something like the picture below.  

If you do not have the option to mount your hub up high or centrally locate your hub in the exercise area (while keeping it plugged into power and plugged into internet source via ethernet cable, that's okay.  It still has a very large range and will work well in your facility.

Once your hub has been plugged into a power source and has been plugged into your internet source, you can check to make sure that it is being detected in the coach app.  

Open the coach app and go to the SESSIONS tab.

Tap on the hub icon at the top of the screen.

Tap on the drop down menu and select Chileaf (if not already selected).

You should see Chileaf Hub XXXXX in the "Hubs in range of this iPad" box.

The ID listed is printed on the top of the hub itself for reference.


As long as your hub is detected and within range of your iPad, then heart rate monitor detection for your members/clients will be easy and seamless.
