The Sigma USB reception control system is ideally suited to the tanning environment and offers a host of programmable options to allow pre-time, fan run-on time, maximum time and clean bed function. The Sigma USB may be used as a standalone system for manual control by the receptionist or linked to third party booking software such as Salon Manager.

Due to more stringent health and safety regulations the use of coin-operated timers is not recommended. Token meters with a pre-time (to allow clients to disrobe) and a maximum time facility are advised. All the recommended meters also have a programmable auxiliary output suitable for fan run-on time.

In 2019 a reception display option will be released which allows the status of all tanning beds in the salon to be displayed centrally on a large screen.
