P106 Combination UV & IR Sun Lamp

Rated at 385 Watts UV and/or IR.

This is a Sun lamp that has two lamps, one is the Mercury UV arc lamp and the other is an IR heat lamp.  So this unit provides both tanning UV and the warmth associated with an IR lamp.  The switch is Start - <center> - IR.  When in held in the Start position for about 10 seconds the filaments in the UV lamp can be seen to warm up and when the switch is released to the center position the UV lamp is glowing.  The switch can be set to IR with or without starting the UV lamp so you can get either UV or IR or both.  But to stop the UV lamp you need to unplug the lamp.

There's a provision to mount the lamp on a wall with the switch and cord pointing down.

Note by grasping the black ring the position of the lamp can be rotated .

Do not look into the lamp without goggles.
Do not use in cases of pellagra, lupus erythemalosus or certain types of eczema.



 Goggles

These goggles have no label info, but since they were in the same lot of items as two Sperti sun lamps and the label on the P103 specifically says to wear goggles I'm assuming they are Sperti brand UV goggles.  Leather frame and glass filters.
