Control we have a problem.

This control box which I used to control power to my larger coils suffered a catastrophic failure a few weeks ago while running my six inch coil being powered by a NST stack of 3 x 15kV 30mA. I don't think it was the power I think it was a short due to the tight confines in which I placed all of the electronics in this box. I have always felt things were a bit tight but never could find reason to change it seeing that it has proven good in hard service for over 3 years. So I'm working on a new control box that will address all the possible issues I saw in the previous one. RIP
