1 SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
1.1 Before installation and placing in operation, the safety instructions and the operating
instructions must be carefully read and observed.
1.2 Before the unit is placed in operation, the local safety regulations and the safety instructions must be
complied with.
1.3
DANGER - ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION Follow instructions. Avoid overexposure. As
with natural sunlight, overexposure can cause eye and skin injury and allergic reactions. Medications
or cosmetics may increase your sensitivity to the ultraviolet radiation. Consult pysician before using
sun lamp if you are using medication or have a history of skin problems or believe yourself especially
sensitive to sunlight. If you do not tan in the sun, you are unlikely to tan from use of this product.
Repeated exposure may cause premature aging of the skin and skin cancer. WEAR PROTECTIVE
EYEWEAR: FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN SEVER BURNS OR LONG-TERM INJURY TO
THE EYES.
Therefore, you must observe the following safety instructions:
The ultraviolet radiation is very intense. DO NOT look at the tanning lamps.
While tanning, close your eyes, and always use the protective eyewear that is supplied.
Before tanning, always remove jewelry.
DO NOT tan more frequently than once every two days.
For recommendations about exposure times and recommended frequencies, please see our
RECOMMENDED EXPOSURE SCHEDULE, which is enclosed with every unit.

Tanning can begin on a regular basis (allowing 48 hours between sessions). An appearance of tanning
normally occurs after a few exposures and maximizes after four (4) weeks of exposure following the
recommended exposure schedule for your skin type. In order to provide for maintenance of a tan, a
maximum of two (2) weekly 15 minute sessions is recommended from the fifth week onward.
USE PROTECTIVE EYEWEAR (Schmerter model no. 2255, PC MARKETING ART. NO 81455)
WHENEVER THE EQUIPMENT IS ENERGIZED. READ THE INSTRUCTION BOOKLET BEFORE USING
THIS PRODUCT.

WARNING:
If you have been diagnosed by a physician as being allergic to the sun or are currently taking photosensitive medications, consult your physician before using this product.
Children, persons with fair skin, elderly persons and persons who have a history of skin problems or believe
yourself especially sensitive to sunlight, should avoid using this product. If you do not tan in the sun you are
unlikely to tan from the use of this product.
Certain drugs - particularly those designed to enhance photosensitivity - may cause individuals under their
influence to experience adverse effects, and those people should avoid exposure to UV sources of all
kinds. Doctors will advise persons taking these drugs of possible adverse effects.
It is recommended that only one person at a time use the tanning system. Use protective eyewear while
tanning. One pair of protective eyewear is provided with each unit sold.
Occasionally, persons, using the tanning system will experience a slight reddening of the skin - usually in
small patches - after the second or third session. This redness is often accompanied by an itching sensation.
This is nothing more then a heat “rash” caused by heat from the lamps within the system. It is generally
very limited and caused by constant contact of the skin with the acrylic surface. It will go away within
approximately 24 hours and should not reappear. This rash can be lessened or prevented by turning over
occasionally during sessions in the unit, and by applying moisturizing lotion to the affected area after the
tanning session is complete.
CAUTION
WHILE THERE IS NO IMMEDIATE CLINICAL EVIDENCE REGARDING UVA EXPOSURE AND ITS
EFFECTS UPON EXPECTANT MOTHERS, IT IS STRONGLY ADVISED THAT EXPECTANT MOTHERS
BE DISCOURAGED FROM USING THIS PRODUCT.
EXPOSURE TIMES AND FREQUENCIES
Melanin, the brownish pigment produced by special cells in the base layers of the skin determines the
individuals ability to tan. As the skin is exposed to ultraviolet rays, the melanin is activated and combines
with protein cells that rise to the skin’s surface, thus producing a tan. The amount of melanin in your body
determines how quickly and darkly you can tan.
NOTE
THE TAN PRODUCED BY THE UNIT IS A DEEP, RICH “COSMETIC” TAN. HOWEVER, REGARDLESS
OF HOW MUCH AN INDIVIDUAL MAY TAN WITH THIS UNIT, IT WILL NOT PROVIDE ADEQUATE
PROTECTION AGAINST OVER-EXPOSURE TO NATURAL SUNLIGHT OR UVB TANNING SYSTEMS.

No two individual skin tones are the same. A tan to one person may be different to another, and session
length may vary. It is recommended that, following a tanning session, a skin moisturizer be applied. This
promotes a smoother more even looking tan. Equally important - many facial make-ups have oil bases and
should be removed prior to each tanning session.
NOTE
SINCE THE BACK AND STOMACH AREAS OF THE BODY WILL RECEIVE THE MAJORITY OF THE
TANNING RAYS, IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT INDIVIDUALS SPEND ONE HALF OF EACH SESSION
LYING ON EACH SIDE OF THE BODY TO ACHIEVE A FULL-BODIED TAN.
SINCE YOUR UNIT WILL CAST OFF SOME HEAT, IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT A SMALL FAN BE
USED TO IMPROVE AIR CIRCULATION DURING SESSIONS. LIKEWISE, ADEQUATE VENTILATION
OF THE ROOM OR BOOTH HOUSING THE UNIT IS REQUIRED FOR COMFORTABLE OPERATION.
WARNING
COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE CREAMS, LOTIONS AND OILS CONTAIN SUNSCREENS WHICH FORM
A PHYSICAL BARRIER ON THE SKIN THAT PREVENTS THE UVA RAYS FROM PENETRATING AND
INDUCING A TAN. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU USE ONLY CREAMS, OILS OR LOTIONS THAT
DO NOT CONTAIN POLYETHYLENE/GLYCOL LAURATE OR POLYETHLENE/GLYCOL MONO
LAURATE AND ARE DESIGNED FOR USE WITH INDOOR TANNING EQUIPMENT. FAILURE TO
COMPLY WITH RECOMMENDATIONS AND WARNINGS STATED ABOVE MAY VOID THE
MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTY.

covers (32 and 33). Connect the Superfan cable (51) to the appropiate socket (52) on the pedestal.
Note:
If the construction of the room space is limited for side access, it is possible to mount the Superfan from the
front. To do this slightly loosen the two rear screws (88) on the side trim panel (32) and completely remove
the front screws (89). Pull the trim panel (32) out forwards. Then slide the Superfan (plug in the cable) and
then the trim panel into their positions from the front. Tighten all four screws on the cover.
3.3 Connection of the Unit’s Air Outlet (figure 1)
The unit are designed so that the heated cooling air is either blown into the room and is discharged from
there via the cubicle air extraction system, or is blown towards the rear or at the right hand side directly into
the outside area via the central air-discharge connection which is present on each unit. In its delivered
state, the unit is designed so that the heated air is blown into the room.
However, direct discharge of air (central air discharge) is the most effective manner and
is recommended.
Optional accesories: pipe connectors, hose clamps, air outlet hose.
Direct discharge of air with the air outlet at the rear (figure 1)
Replace the rear cover plate (55) the connecting plate (56), and replace the slotted air discharge cover (57)
at the side by the solid cover plate (55). If the hole in the wall cannot be made directly behind the connecting
plate (56), the distance can easily be bridged with an air hose. Fixing the hose to the connecting plate (56)
is done by a hose clamp. The hose adapters (connecting plate, hose clamps, etc) can be obtained from
your authorized dealer.
• Direct discharge of air with the air outlet at the side (figure 1)
Remove the slotted air discharge cover (57) from the side air-outlet. There, attach a connecting plate, and
to that you must connect an air discharge hose by means of a hose clamp. The air discharge opening at
the rear remains closed. By means of duct connecting plates, a wall sleeve and automatic outlet flap, route
the air discharge hose into the outside atmosphere, or connect it to an air duct.
• Air Discharge Collar Accessory
The direct discharge of outlet air can be performed by an air discharge collar (90) which replaces the
connecting plate (56). Using this air discharge collar port of the warmed cooling air can be fed into the
room and can pleasantly warm the during the cold periods of the year without additonal costs. The amount
of warm air fed into the room is controlled by opening the air slot on the air discharge collar with the round
knob. The air discharge collar can be obtained from your dealer or from PCM. Please call for details.
Attention, important information ! You must observe this; there is a danger of overheating!
To avoid excessive resistance to the air flow, the hose should not be longer than 6 feet
and should be laid so that any bends have as large a radius of curvature as possible,
and without kinks. If the air is discharged to the outside by a ventilation duct, it must be
ensured that the flow resistance in the interior of the duct is as low as possible; if
necessary, an additional fan might need to be installed there. In this case, please consult
a ventilation engineer. The rate of discharge is about 1500 m3 / hour; accordingly, fresh
air must be allowed to enter the room at the same rate. Therefore, you must provide
fresh air openings in the wall of the cubicle, having unobstructed cross section of at
least 700 cm2.

3.4 Electrical Connection
Important: The electrical connection work should only performed by a certified
electrician in accordance with local laws
Important:
In the case of connection to a fault current circuit-breaker (<,=) 30 mA, it must be noted that, during the
ignition process, discharge current peaks occur which are so short that they can only be detected with an
oscilloscope. Therefore, if serveral units are operated together to one and the same fault current circuitbreaker, the peaks can be additive and can cause the fault current circuit-breaker to trip even although
there are no defects in the units.
3.5 Remote Timing Control
Therefore, never connect more than one unit to one and the same fault current circuitbreaker (< =) 30 mA
• Disconnect the unit from the mains!
The unit is equipped for connection to a remote timer system for central control.
• Coding plug for connection to a remote timing system (Figure 2)
Insert the coding plug (85) with cable (86), which is situated on the right-hand end face of the pedestal, into
the special socket with retaining clip. This cable forms the connection to the token box of remote system.
The cable has four cores (phase, switched phase, neutral). Therefore, the remote control system does not
need a separate electrical connection ground.

5 CLEANING - IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THE OPERATOR
Ensure extremely strict hygiene on the tanning unit and in its vicinity. Dust deposits
reduce the tanning effect. DO NOT pour or spill liquids over the unit, so that no moisture
can penetrate under the covers and into the electrical equipment. Use cleaning materials
in accordance with manufacture’s instructions. Follow the recommended waiting time
for acrylic cleaners as per manufacture’s instructions.
• Frame
Clean the painted external surfaces of the unit with a slightly damp cloth; some detergent can be added to
the water. DO NOT use abrasive materials. Stubborn dirt can be removed with a soft cloth and a
biodegradable cleaning material.
• Acrylic sheet
Use only the genuine PC Marketing acrylic cleaner, or approved equal. If cleaning materials other than the
above are used, we cannot accept any warranty liability. When using the PC Marketing acrylic cleaner
spray it on the acrylic sheet, let it sit for 30 seconds, and dry it off with a clean, dry cloth. Occasionally, also
clean the side of the acrylic sheet facing the lamps. To do this, take the acrylic sheet off.
• Reflector
When changing lamps, wipe the reflectors by means of a cloth moistened with alcohol.
6 MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR
Always disconnect the unit from the power source.
The owner / operator of this unit must ensure that the unit is always operated in a perfect condition. Ensure
regular maintenance and checking of all the technical equipment.
Only authorized technicians should work on this unit. Working procedures which jeopardize the safety of
the unit must not be used. Always obtain genuine spare parts through PC Marketing. DO NOT operate the
unit without the acrylics in place.
6.1 Changing the Acrylic Sheet
The acrylic sheets are produce and formulated from specially treated acrylic materials highly transparent to
UV light. The process of forming and molding the acrylic sheets is done within an exact temperature
controlled environment. Finally, the acrylics are annealed (oven baked) for longevity. This strict process of
manufacturing can have no deviation.
Therefore, when replacing acrylic sheets, please be aware that all suppliers DO NOT
manufacture acrylic sheets the same. To be sure you are receiving genuine replacement
acrylic sheets, contact PC Marketing.
When a replacement is delivered, the acrylic sheet is covered with a protective covering on both sides.
Before installing in the tanning unit, pull off the protective covering. DO NOT operate the unit without the
acrylic sheet as the cooling of the lamps cannot be assured.

6.2 Maintenance of the Face Tanners - (GB Version)
The High Pressure face tanner can only be used with the two glass filter plates in place; if
these are damaged or missing, tanning MUST NOT take place ! There is a danger of burns
! Danger of eye injury cause by excessive intensity!
When the face tanner has been running and is switched off and on again immediately, it may not light up
again, and will not provide full power, since it requires a cooling down phase of about (4) minutes. The low
pressure lamps require no cool down period for restarting.
• Changing the High Pressure Lamp (figure 4)
Remove the acrylic sheet in accordance with the previous description. Remove the cheese-head screw
(62) on the glass filter plate holder (63). Tilt the glass filter plate holder down. Hold the filter plate holder
with both hands, and push it towards the end cover so that it becomes detached. Grasp the high pressure
lamp (64) by the rectangular end of the lamp, and pushing it in the lengthsways into the holder (65) until it
is released at the other end. Now pull it out in a downward direction.
You must NEVER pull on the glass of the lamp.
Hold the new high pressure lamp by the end of the lamp only. Plug the lamp (64) into the holder (65). Push
the holder back. Insert the new lamp.
You must NEVER touch the glass of the high pressure lamp with your fingers.
If you have touched it by accident, wipe off your fingerprints by means of a clean cloth moistened with
alcohol.
To obtain replacement tanning lamps for the high pressure facial tanners, please
contact PC Marketing. No liability can be accepted if replacements other then genuine
lamps, and starters are installed.
• Cleaning the reflectors
Before you insert the new lamps, wipe the reflectors by means of a cloth moistened with alcohol.
• Cleaning the glass filter plates
Unscrew the two cheese-head screws (66) on the filter plate holder (63). Take off the cover plate (67). Pull
out the dark glass filter plate (91) and the clear glass filter plate (69). Clean both glass filter plates with
warm water to which some detergent can be added. Wipe the glass filter plates dry with a clean cloth.
12
When re-assembling : Dark glass filter plate - on user’s side !!
Clear glass filter plate - on lamp side !!
The face tanner MUST NOT be used without the glass filter plates!!
Extreme care must be taken not to scratch the glass filter plates.
Re-insert the filter plate holder (63) with the cleaned glass filter plates. Screw the filter plate holder in
place again by means of the screw (62).
6.3 Changing the Tanning Lamps (figure 5)
In accordance with previous description, remove the acrylic sheet. Rotate the tanning lamp (71) in either
direction until the contact pins (72) are visible in the groove of the holder (73). Pull the lamp out. Clean the
reflectors by means of a cloth moistened with alcohol. Hold the new tanning lamp horizontally so that the
contact pins are vertically above one another. In this position, press the tanning lamp into the holder.
Rotate or twist the tanning lamp 90 degrees so that the notch (74) in the metal ring at the end of the lamp
is facing upwards and the brighter reflector side of the lamp is facing towards the unit.
• Changing the short lamps (U-P-P VERSION)
Remove the acrylic sheet as previously described. Rotate the short lamp (75) in either direction so that
one contact pin (76) goes into the grove (77) (which is open at the bottom) of the holder. Pull the short lamp
out downwards. Hold the new short lamp horizontally so that the contact pins (76) are vertically above one
another. In this position, align the lamps into the groove which is open at the bottom. Tilt the lamp so that
one contact pin fits firmly in the wing of the groove. Rotate the lamp so that the second contact pin snaps
into the other wing of the groove.
6.4 Changing the Filters
The air for cooling the unit enters it through micro filter pads. Lint, hair, dust particles etc., are filtered out
there, so that the internal parts of the unit, such as lamps etc., do not have to be cleaned often. After
prolonged use, these filtered-out particles clog the filters and thus impair the cooling of the unit. Therefore,
you must occasionally replace the filter pads to prevent overheating of the unit. The replacement interval is
dependent upon operating times and local environmental conditions.
You must check the filters after every 200 hours of operation; the filters must not be
more then half clogged
Obtain genuine filter pads through PC Marketing or your authorized distributor only.
• Changing the filter on the lounge (Figure 2)
Pull the front cover (18) off forwards. There is a large filter pad (79) attached to the cover plate (19) with
strips of velcro. Pull off the filter pad and put on the new pad. Press the front cover (18) back into place.
• Changing the filters on the canopy (Figure 1)
Remove the upper cover (8) by pressing the cover from the rear of the unit in the direction of the middle.
This can then be removed from the large cover (53) using the tabs. The filter pad is now acces-sible. reove
the wire clips (81), change the filter pad and put the wire clips back on. refit the cover (8)
7 NOTES
• Burning in the lamps
Initially, the lamps have slight color differences. This phenomenon disappears after a short time. The lamps
shine less brightly at the ends. This is due to physical reasons and is not a defect in the lamps.
• Replacing the tanning lamps
The output of the lamps gradually decreases over time, and this effect cannot be visually detected. PC
Marketing recommends that fluorescent lamps should be replaced after approximately 800 hours of operation.
8 GENERAL TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
Before you begin maintenance and repair work, you must disconnect unit from the
main power supply. Repairs should only be performed by authorized persons. Safety
devices must no be removed or disabled.
• Dark spots at the ends of the lamps
If dark spots are present at the ends of the lamps when they are off, this will not affect the performance of
the unit. However, as a precaution, replace the starter.
13
• One or more lamps are not lighting (change of starter)
Take off the acrylic sheet of the lounge or canopy. Check whether the lamp in inserted properly. Then check
that the starter is seated properly.
Starter - Tanning Lamp in lounge - On lamp holders at the head end; take off
the acrylic sheet (82)
Tanning Lamp in canopy - On lamp holders at the foot end; take off the
acrylic sheet (83)
Short Lamps in canopy - Take off the covers (83 and 53)
Remove the starter for the lamp that is not lighting then turning it counter clockwise, and then put it back in
again by turning it clockwise. If the lamp still does not light, insert the starter from a working lamp. If this is
not successful, the lamp must be checked. Insert the lamp that is not lighting into a holder where a lamp
does light. If the lamp does not light, it is defective and will have to be replaced. If it does light, there is an
electrical short in the unit.
Any electrical shorts should be checked by an authorized technician approved
by PC Marketing.
• The canopy or the lounge gets too hot.
Check whether the air intake filters (filter pads) are clogged. In the case of units with direct discharge of air,
ensure that the heated cooling air is passed into the outside atmosphere without excessive resistance.
There must not be excessive hindrance of the air flow, either in the flexible duct or in the ventilation duct,
because this will case overheating of the unit.
This check should be performed by an authorized technician approved
by PC MARKETING.
