I get various opinions. I feel it is low because I can go 10 mins and feel good without burning and get great results. Anyone have real specs.

THanks

lampman. What about the UVB in the 120 Watt F73 Genesis? I am guessing about 5.5%. Close?

Not a bad guess.The genesis is just over 5%.But dont let the uvb number be your deciding factor.The Hi Tan lamp is under 5% but has a shorter exposure schedule.

What? HI-TAN 10 minute 100 watt F73 lamps by or marketed by Cosmedico? They are 8.5%. Are you talking about the same lamp? I just put them in a bed, and you definetly burn much faster, not to mention that is what they are marketed at.

Cosmedico Hi Tan lamps do have an exposure schedule around 10 minutes.Cosmedico does not advertise the UVB% in their lamps but if you read their broshure they tell you how to calculate it.It is just below 5% our test puts the lamp at 4.7%.Just remember that UVB% is not a good way to compare lamps.

The only valid way to compare lamps is MED/hr, which is related to max timer interval (Te). Yes higher % B 100W lamps are generally more effective ("hot") than low % B. But a 160W with less % B can be and often is more effective, due to more total (A+B) irradiance.

MED/hr takes in to account lamp weighted UVR erythemal "power", and is almost always inversely proportional to Te time. Standardized lamp/bed testing protocol has been recommended by TSO and others to the FDA, and someday soon more of the mystery should be removed from this whole subject.

Too confusing, eh? How 'bout weighted Joules per meter squared instead?
