Hello Mike,
in Europe are different voltages. In Germany we have 230 Volt, 50 Hz. Of
course, you cannot use fluoro tubes with these datas in the US. You need a
transformer to convert 230 Volt to 110 Volt. The different frequency is not
so important. The power of the transformer should be a little bit higher
than the total load of the tubes. Please attention in case of diy: Current
is dangerous!
