I would advise you to find someone selling an old sunbed that used the old Brantham or Controllogy electronic ballasts, they handle 8 100w tubes at the same time. There are 6-8 boards depending on the bed you get, just make sure you bolt down the heatsink properly to something large because they run very hot, forced air cooling is also a definate plus too. If you are only using 8 or less tubes, I have a refurbished board here, for a fee of course...
