    Hi Erick,
    For USA electrical wiring the green wire is the ground wire. Make sure to refer to the tanning bed manufacturers Installation Manual for the Electrical Circuit Requirements and the Wiring Connections for the specific tanning bed that you have.
    Thank you for sharing your tanning bed question with us,
    Dave

    I have installed a 30 amp 220 breaker and the electrical wire from the breaker box to the tanning bed. I will be using a junction box and the hots on my wire are red and black with white as the common. The wire on my bed has a white, a black and a green. Is the green supposed to be common or hot?

  3. Dave Rongey says:

    Hi Phillip,
    The material list for installing a 220 volt tanning bed will be based upon the required amperage, as specified in the installation manual for the tanning bed. Once this is known then the specific materials may be identified, such as wire type and size, cable or conduit, fasteners, circuit breaker, receptacle box, outlet and cover. For more assistance visit the sections of this website that describe various electrical cable, circuit breakers, electrical boxes, and most importantly the electrical code section. Planning your project through the local building department and obtaining a permit and inspections is of utmost importance.
    I hope this helps you with your tanning bed project,
    Dave
