afety Information
LABELING NOTICE: Labels are affixed on all systems to inform the user of possible dangers. Regulations are stated in 21 CFR, Section
1040.20, and require that all products manufactured after September 8, 1986 which use sunlamps must display the following:
DANGER
Ultraviolet radiation. Follow instructions. Avoid overexposure. As with natural sunlight, overexposure can cause
eye and skin injury and allergic reactions. Repeated exposure may cause premature aging of the skin and skin
cancer. WEAR PROTECTIVE EYEWEAR; FAILURE TO MAY RESULT IN SEVERE BURNS OR LONGTERM INJURY TO THE EYES.
Medications or cosmetics may increase your sensitivity to the ultraviolet radiation. Consult physician before using sunlamp if you are
using medications 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 the use of this product. Children, the elderly, or fair skinned people who always burn easily and either never tan
or tan minimally should not use this equipment.
To use, lie down under canopy and pull down as far as adjustment will allow maintaining at least 3.5 inches (8.9 centimeters) between
your body and canopy clear plastic panel and side tanner clear plastic panel, otherwise overexposure may occur. Minimum use distance
elsewhere is touching the clear plastic panels. Do not use without clear plastic panels in place. Untanned persons should not tan on consecutive days during their first week of tanning. Never tan more than once a day. Tanning normally appears after the first few sessions
and maximizes after approximately four weeks. Tan once or twice per week thereafter to maintain appearance. Persons already having
a base tan may begin at advanced levels corresponding to the extent of their base tan.
RECOMMENDED EXPOSURE TIMES IN MINUTES

I Sensitive Skin
II Light
III Normal
IV Dark

New lamps emit approximately 10% more ultraviolet radiation during the first 50 hours of operation. Recommended tanning times should
therefore be reduced by approximately 10% during that period.
WARNING: • Read the instructions booklet before using this sunlamp product. • All persons in the room should wear protective eyewear
when lamps are on. Recommended eyewear: provided eyeshields or equivalent eyewear as defined under 21 CFR 1040.20. Other types
of eyewear may not provide adequate protection. Failure to use protective eyewear may result in severe burns or other eye injury. If discomfort develops, discontinue use and consult a physician.

Renseignements sur la Sécurité
Rayonnement ultraviolet. Veuillez suivre les instructions. Évitez une exposition excessive. Tout comme pour les
rayons du soleil, une exposition excessive peut causer des blessures aux yeux et à la peau et provoquer des réactions allergiques. Une exposition répétée peut causer le vieillissement prématuré de la peau et provoquer le cancer de la peau. PORTEZ
DES LUNETTES PROTECTRICES: LE NON-RESPECT DE CETTE CONSIGNE DE SÉCURITÉ PEUT ENTRAÎNER DE GRAVES
BRÛLURES OU DES LÉSIONS OCULAIRES À LONG TERME. Les médicaments ou les produits cosmétiques peuvent augmenter votre
sensibilité au rayonnement ultraviolet. Consultez un médecin avant d’utiliser la lampe solaire si vous prenez des médicaments, si vous
souffrez d’une maladie cutanée ou si vous croyez être particulièrement sensible aux rayons du soleil. Si vous ne bronzez pas au soleil, il
est peu probable que vous bronzerez sous une lampe solaire. Les enfants, les personnes âgées et les personnes qui ont une peau claire
qui brûle facilement, ne bronze jamais ou alors très peu, ne devraient pas utiliser cette lampe.
Étendez-vous sous la partie supérieure, puis abaissez celle-ci aussi bas que possible, en veillant cependant à conserver un espace d’au
moins 3,5 pouces (8,9 centimètres) entre le corps et le panneau de plastique transparent de la partie supérieure et le panneau de plastique
transparent de l’appareil de bronzage latérales, afin d’éviter une exposition excessive. Les autres parties du corps peuvent toucher les panneaux de plastique transparents. N’utilisez pas la lampe sans les panneaux de plastique transparents. La première semaine de bronzage,
les personnes qui n’ont pas un hâle initial ne doivent pas se faire bronzer tous les jours. Ne vous faites jamais bronzer plus d’une fois par
jour. Le bronzage commence normalement à apparaître après les premières séances : il atteint son apogée au bout d’environ quatre
semaines. Les personnes qui ont déjà un teint hâlé peuvent commencer à des niveaux plus élevés, selon l’importance de leur hâle initial.

nstallation
Pre-Installation Planning
Before you begin to assemble your sunbed, you should observe the following considerations.
WARNING
Shock hazard.
Disconnect power before
servicing.
• The SolarForce® 648 operates from
a 220V AC power source. The unit
should be wired to a dedicated circuit capable of providing 70 Amp
service. This unit must be hardwired
directly to a junction box. We recommend connection by a professional electrician.
• IMPORTANT! Voltage must be
below 230V AC or may require a
Buck Booster.
CAUTION
Use of a voltage source above 230V
AC may prevent proper operation of
the sunbed and could cause damage
and void the warranty.
CAUTION
Air from the room is used to cool
the sunbed. Maximum ambient
room temperature should be 80°F.
Place your sunbed no closer than
6” from any wall. Make sure nothing
obstructs the airflow into or out of
the fan openings. A poorly ventilated room may cause the unit to
become hot and cause discomfort
to the user.
CAUTION
Proper assembly of your sunbed
requires three people. Plan to have
a couple of helpers assist you.

lift system to raise the canopy. This lift system may need to be adjusted slightly due
to shipment. Use a 7/8” wrench to turn
the hex shaped Lift Adjustment lugs
(shown below), clockwise for more lift
and counterclockwise for less. When
adjusted properly, the canopy should raise
easily as well as rest fully closed. Always
adjust both lugs equally.
Make sure the air filter is in place on top
of the ballast drawer. It simply sits over the
vent holes. Airflow holds it in place when

Installation - Remote Connections
Remote Connections
Your sunbed incorporates advanced circuitry allowing it to connect and communicate with most remote control systems. If a remote system is to be used,
first determine whether the remote system is a T-Max® System or a standard
remote system operating with a control
relay. Follow the appropriate instructions
for your system type.
Two remote ports are located in the small
black box on the rear access panel (see
right). Both ports work the same. A
Remote Control Bypass plug is already
installed in one of the remote control
ports. Your sunbed will not operate without
the Remote Control Bypass plug or a
remote system connected.
REMOTE CONTROL
BYPASS PLUG
25806-01A
ATTENTION: Use only the Remote
Control Bypass plug supplied with your
sunbed. Similar looking T-Max® terminator plugs will not work as a bypass plug.
Normally, a bypass plug is needed only
when your sunbed is operated without a
remote system connected.
22
Installation - Remote Connections
T-Max® Products
T-Max® Manager Remote System
The T-Max® remote systems offer the ultimate
in sunbed control, while allowing the tanner
easy straightforward operation. Your sunbed is
configured to directly connect to this system.
The circuitry inside your bed eliminates the
need for the T-Max® 1A or 3A when connecting to the T-Max® Manager series. Your bed
supports the auto addressing feature of the latest T-Max® Manager models and the following
parameters: 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 13, 15, 23, 38.
See the chart on page 25 and your T-Max®
manual for descriptions of these parameters
and how they function.
CAUTION
The remote connection is not designed to supply
or accept high voltage, nor can it provide power
to an external timer. The sunbed’s remote interface circuitry operates on 5 volts, attempting to
connect it to any higher voltages will damage the
sunbed as well as void your warranty.
figure 1
T-Max® 1A and 3A Remote Systems
In single sunbed installations, the T-Max® 1A
and 3A can offer the same control as the TMax® Manager, eliminating the need for a
Manager. If you’re using a 1A in this manner,
it must have a chip labelled “master” installed
on its circuit board. The remote control
bypass plug must not be used in this configuration. The 3A may be used as a “master” with
no modification.
NOTE: A T-Max® 1A
can be substituted for
the 3A in figure 1.
25806-01A
23
This system is ideal for multiple sunbed installations. Simply connect the RJ-22 modular
cable(s), described in the T-Max® Manager
manual, into the remote port(s) located on the
back of your sunbed and follow the instructions that came with your remote system, noting figure 1. If you have an older T-Max®
Manager that doesn’t support auto addressing,
set the address, or “id”, of each sunbed manually as described in Setting the address manually. You can place your sunbed at any location in the series.
Installation - Remote Connections
After you have set the T-Max® 1A’s, or
3A’s, address to “0” (refer to your T-Max®
user’s guide) and the sunbed’s address to
“1” (see right), simply connect the RJ-22
modular cables, described in the T-Max®
user’s guide, directly into either port
located on the back of the sunbed and

Installation - Remote Connections
Remote systems using a Control Relay
Most non-T-Max® remote systems control
the sunbed by the use of a relay. The relay
operates the sunbed by connecting and
disconnecting a pair of wires leading from
the sunbed. Refer to the user’s manual
provided with your remote system to
determine if it operates in this way. To
connect your sunbed to this type of system a remote interface kit is required.
Contact your place of purchase to obtain
the kit. Figure 3 details a typical connection. Follow the instructions provided
with the kit and from the remote’s manual
to make the necessary connections.

DANGER
Some medication may increase your sensitivity to ultraviolet light. It is recommended
that you consult a physician before using
this sunbed if taking any medication or if you
suspect that your skin might be especially
sensitive to sunlight.
Before using your sunbed, please note the
following important precautions.
• Your skin should be free of cosmetics,
oils, or other body lotions prior to tanning except for those specifically
made for use with tanning devices.
However, do not remove natural body
oils by bathing or showering immediately before tanning.
DANGER
Shock hazard.
Do not operate this device near

are and Maintenance
Cleaning After Use
Clean and disinfect your tanning bed’s
bench and canopy after each use. Use a
non-abrasive disinfectant cleaner that does
not contain ammonia or ammonia derivatives. Ammonia may damage the acrylic
shield. Spray the acrylic lightly with disinfectant and wipe dry with a clean soft cloth.
We recommend SunQuest® disinfectant and
SunQuest® acrylic cleaner.
Thorough Periodic Cleaning
Introduction
The cooling fans draw air through the bed
and over time will cause a dust buildup on
the lamps and reflectors. This reduces the
tanning effectiveness of the bed. When a
dust buildup is observed, it is necessary to
thoroughly clean the inside of the unit.
WARNING
Shock hazard.
Disconnect power before removing
any protective covers.
Cleaning the Canopy and Bench
Step 1 Remove the acrylic shields and
lamps as described in Lamp and
Acrylic Replacement.
Step 2 With a soft cloth, wipe the entire
length of each lamp.
Step 4
Step 5
Step 6
Clean both sides of the acrylic
shields with a non-ammonia disinfectant cleaner.
Wipe the reflectors with a clean
damp cloth.
Reinstall the lamps and acrylic
shields.
Clean or replace air filters on top
of ballast drawer and in right
pedestal (see Under the Bench).
Mechanical Inspection
Your tanning bed has been built for years of
service. To ensure trouble-free operation
throughout its life, inspect the unit’s mechanical integrity every 400-500 hours of use.
• Inspect the unit’s fasteners verifying that
all are firmly in place.
• Inspect lift springs for signs of wear.
Adjust for proper lift if needed. See
Under the Bench.
• Inspect the power cords and connections.
• Inspect the acrylics. Broken, cracked or
badly scratched acrylics should be
immediately replaced.
• Check damper operation. The damper
limits the canopy’s movement speed.
The damper looks like a gas spring
attached to the left hinge arm. Replace if
canopy raises and lowers too quickly.

Care and Maintenance - Lamp and Acrylic Replacement
Lamp and Acrylic Replacement
Introduction
To be assured of maximum tanning effectiveness, change lamps after approximately 800-1000 hours of use. Tanning will
continue after this time but at a slower
rate. To ensure trouble-free operation of
your sunbed, replace the lamp starters
whenever the lamps are replaced.
To remove the Bench acrylic, lift the
acrylic so the gas springs are fully extended. Each gas spring is held to the acrylic
bracket with a locking pin. Unclip the pin
and slide it out to disconnect the spring
from the acrylic (see below). With the
acrylic open lift it from the bench.
Replace the acrylic by setting the hinge
channel along its back edge in its slot at
the rear of the bench and reconnecting
the gas springs.
WARNING
Shock hazard.
Disconnect power before removing
any protective covers.
25806-01A
Opening/Replacing Bench Acrylic
The Bench acrylic does not need to be
removed to perform normal maintenance,
such as cleaning and replacing lamps.

Care and Maintenance - Lamp and Acrylic Replacement
Removing/Replacing Face Tanner
Lamps
After opening the canopy acrylic, replace
the face tanner lamps as follows:
Note! Never take hold of the lamp such
that your fingers are in contact with the
lamp glass. Finger oils will greatly reduce
the lamp’s operational life.
Step 1 Support the face tanner assembly
with your hand while unscrewing the two retaining screws. The
face tanner glass casing will
swing downward.
Step 3 Gently close the face tanner
glass casing and lock it closed
with the screws. Ensure that the
screws firmly secure the glass
casing.
Step 2 The lamp can now be
exchanged. The lamp holders
are equipped with spring contacts which enable the lamp to
be removed easily. Remove the
old lamp and discard. Install the
new lamp, using a clean cloth
or paper towel. Ensure that the
lamp is firmly seated in the
lamp holders.
DANGER
Unfiltered light from face tanner can
cause severe burns.
Never turn sunbed on while face
tanner is disassembled or when
glass filters are removed.
Immediately discontinue use of this
equipment if face tanner glass is
broken or any unfiltered light can be
seen escaping face tanner assembly.

Care and Maintenance - Under the Bench
Under the Bench
Lift the bench acrylic (see Lamp and
Acrylic Replacement). The front access
panel is held in place by four Phillips
head screws. Remove the access panel.
Canopy Lift Adjustment
Your sunbed uses a smooth gliding spring
lift system to raise the canopy. Periodically
this lift system may need to be adjusted
slightly. Use a 7/8” wrench (or ratchet
wrench) to turn the hex shaped Lift
Adjustment lugs (shown below), clockwise for more lift and counterclockwise
for less. When adjusted properly, the
canopy should raise easily as well as rest
fully closed. Always adjust both lugs
equally.
Air Filter Replacement
The bench contains three air filters, one
on top of the ballast drawer and two
inside the right pedestal. The filter on top
of the ballast drawer simply sits on the
drawer and is held in place by airflow
when the unit is running. Replace with a
standard 10” x 24” x 1” furnace filter. The
airflow indicator should point down.
Thumb screws secure an access plate
onto the right pedestal. Using your fingers, loosen the screws to remove this
plate. Behind it are two air filters. Pull
them straight out. Replace with standard
12” x 18” x 1” furnace filters. The airflow
arrows should point toward the head end.
