    I can tell you right now, this is not going to be a cost effective project, in my opinion. Power supplies are $400 each, if they are still available new for that bar. What is the exact model number?

    My b-link was completely trasformed into the normal edge setup with the edge power supplies so it could be run to a normal controller. I got everything on eBay and it's been working great so far! I have maybe a couple hundred into the swap.

    It's not difficult to do, but if you are going to buy new parts, it won't be cheap. If you are going to buy used parts, you are taking your chances. You said you only have four corner strobes now, so you probably only have one PS, which would have 6 outlets.

    You are running four now, right? So you woud have two outlets available on the PS you have, and would have to buy another PS to add more after that.
