Electric Specification for Single Phase

STAND UP

1 x 63-amp C RATED FUSE
These fuses must be fitted to the fuse board. You will also require a 10mm 3-CORE twin & earth cable from your fuse board to the location of your equipment. This cable is to be connected to a 63-amp rotary isolation switch, located within easy reach for safety.
Once the isolation switch has been fitted, we require a 2 meter, 10mm twin and earth cable, coming from the isolation switch and a BLUE 63 AMP female commando socket fitting

LAY DOWN

1 x 50-amp C RATED FUSE
This fuse must be fitted to the fuse board. You will also require a 10mm 3-CORE twin & earth cable from your fuse board to the location of your equipment. This cable is to be connected to a 63-amp single phase rotary isolation switch, located within easy reach for safety.
Once the isolation switch has been fitted, we require a 2 meter, 10mm twin and earth cable, coming from the isolation switch and a BLUE 63 AMP female commando socket

Electric Specification for Three Phase

STAND UP

1 x 32 C RATED FUSE, this fuse is fitted in to your fuse board, you will require 5 core 6mm cable from your fuse board to your isolation switch, which is 3 phases 63 amp within easy reach for safety. Once the isolation switch has been fitted, we will require a 2-meter, 5 core 6mm cable from the isolation switch with a c32 3 phase 5 PIN RED 32 AMP female commando socket.

LAY DOWN

1 x 32 C RATED FUSE, this fuse is fitted into your fuse board, you will require 5 core 6mm cable from your fuse board to your isolation switch, which is 3 phases 63 amp within easy reach for safety. Once isolation switch has been fitted, we will require a 2-meter, 5 core 6mm cable from the isolation switch with a c32 3 phase 5 PIN RED 32AMP female commando sockets.

Electrical specification for RCD

If your fuse board is RCD protected, the RCD must be 100 milliamp. You are unable to hold a sunbed on a 30 milliamp RCD.
Technical Notes for Your Electrician RCD’s trip with an earth leakage of 30mA which is sufficiently low enough to protect against electric shock, and is the industry standard size of RCD. But what is unusual about sunbeds is that the choke (ballast) inside that supplies each lamp, by its very nature, has a natural earth leakage of around 0.75mA. This is inherent in its design, as a copper coil surrounding a soft iron core. Hence a 40 tube sunbed can easily have a total earth leakage of 30mA, and a 50 tube sunbed almost certainly would. If you were not aware of this, you could be scratching your head for days chasing an earth fault that is non-existent. The much rarer 100mA trip RCD must be used on sunbeds. To make it worse, the earth leakage of the ballasts increase with time, so do not fit a 30mA RCD even if nuisance tripping does not initially occur.

Isolation Switches

When fitting an isolation switch, there are several things to remember,

  • The isolation switch must always be accessible in case of emergency.
  • The isolation switch should never be placed in a room where mains cables are left exposed and a danger to the public.

Stand Up

The ideal place for an isolation switch for a stand up unit, is for it to be placed on the back wall to either left or right of where the sunbed is going to be situated. If the stand up is going to be placed in a corner of the room, then the isolation switch will be placed on the wall to the side of the stand up either the left or right. It is to be placed around 5ft from the floor.

Lay Down

When fitting an isolation switch for lay down, the ideal place for it to be placed is on the left hand side of where the bed is going to be placed. This also needs to be placed around 5ft from the floor and accessible.

If you are in any doubt at all where to place the isolation switch before the bed arrives simply send us a picture of the room, you have prepared,and we will happily tell you where to place it.

The pulling power in amps of the stand-up is as follows
First 3-4 seconds 51 amp then drops to 48 amps

Lay down

The pulling amps is 46amps for first 3-4 seconds then drops down to between 42-44 amps
This amp’s information must be given to your electrician as he may wonder why we are asking on single phase for 10mm 3 core twin and earth with a 63 amp breaker
