Rep Power: 16 JOLEE is on a distinguished road
Hi everyone, since you are all soo hopeful, I thought I would throw another question your way. Do any of you use the TMax Manager and timers? I need to know what type of wiring it needs from the manager to the timers..my electrician said some timers require a locking type of wire (?) which only the manufacturer of the timers can supply, and others can be wired easy.

anyone have any idea?

-Thanks!

If you get you T-Max Manager and T-Max room timers from a distributors, they will come with all the necessary wiring. It is very simple to wire and an electrician should not be needed. From the manager you are usually given a 50 ft. wire that you would run to your first tanning unit, from then on another cable is provided which you then link to the next room and so on. The cables have a connector similar to the connector used to hook your phone handset to your phone and you merely need to daisy chain the connections. Full instructions are provided that even my former wife could understand. Use T-Max and you'll have no difficulty setting it up.

Hey, Neon, was your former wife a blond? LOL

Anyway, I agree with Neon, it should come with good instructions that even men who don't like to look at instructions can figure out! LOL

As a matter of fact she is blond.... And what ever the proper name of the cable is, buy the system new or "complete" and you'll get everything you need. Beware, while the cable looks similiar to an extension cable for your phone, the T-Max cables actually use the smaller connectors (phone handset to phone not phone to phone jack). Anywho, it's nothing to fear!

A typical electrician is about the only one who would screw up the wiring for a Tmax. The smart ones will tell you they don't want to mess with low voltage. The typical know-it-all "master" electrician will tell you no problem and then proceed to do something wrong.

Your best bet is to talk to your bed distributor and/or Tmax themselves. Also keep in mind some beds don't need room timers (3A's) because they already have tmax timers inside them.

I agree, don't spend more money then needed. The overpriced electricians will try to complicate the T-max. I've set-up several T-Max systems. They are very simple. Like salonpro stated, you can get everything that you need from Radio Shack and do it yourself...
