Timers are easily controlled manually using the keyboard
style Set (top), Up (middle) and Down (bottom) buttons at

feature is one of several continuously running meters. Elapsed
Time tracks the total time for each station -- down to the
additional meter separately tracks just the time that is
set by a computer.
Session Counter tracks the number of sessions completed
for each station. For
example when you tan 4 people for 15 minutes each, the FST
Timer will count this as 4 sessions. This feature helps
show how the Elapsed
Time meter breaks down. It also helps prevent
employee theft. An additional counter tracks just the sessions
set by a computer.
Time is similar to Elapsed Time, they both track the exact
time for each station. However, the Lamp Time can be reset
to zero each time you change the tanning beds lamps. The
Lamp Time helps you determine when to replace the lamps.
Undress Time, also called auto-start, feature is especially
useful during your busy season. It prevents
your clients from taking too long to start their tanning
session. Normally you will set the minutes to tan on the
FST Timer then when the tanner is ready they will push the
button on the FST Wall Switch (installed near the tanning
bed) to start their tanning session.
Timers are shipped with a 5 minute undress time. This
means if the tanner does not press the button on the FST
Wall Switch within 5 minutes the FST Timer will start counting
down automatically. When they take too long to get ready
they lose time. When
a tanner is ready to tan sooner than 5 minutes they simply
press the button on the FST Wall Switch to start their tanning
Undress Time can be set to zero to gives your tanners as
much time as they need to get ready or between 1 and 9 minutes
to help them get ready to tan quicker.

tanning time allowed for each tanning unit. This feature
helps prevent employees from giving away extra minutes and
also helps prevent clients from tanning more than the maximum
exposure time recommended by the beds manufacturer. FST
Timers ship with the Maximum Exposure Time set to 30 minutes
for each station.
Preset Time feature is used to set the default tanning time
for each bed. For example the maximum exposure time is 30
minutes but most people only tan 20 minutes. When you press
the Set button on the FST Timer the Preset Time will appear.
This feature helps save you time during busy periods. FST
Timers ship with the Preset Time set to 20 minutes for each
station. The Up and Down buttons can always be pressed to
increase or decrease the session time.
