Digital Kiln Controllers Take the Guess Work out of Kiln Firing

Using a manually fired kiln can be an exercise in frustration and often results in ruined projects and wasted glass.  Using a programmable controller allows you to run your kiln accurately and effortlessly.  Set the program, hit the start button and go. You will get reproducible results without having to hover about your kiln watching the needle on the pyrometer.

EvenHeat gives you two choices:

  • RampMaster III, with the greatest set of features
  • SetPro, not as many bells and whistles, but easy to set and go
EvenHeat controllers are available as a factory installed option for your kiln. They can also be purchased separately to run an existing kiln (see Wall Mount RampMaster II below).  EvenHeat controllers use computer technology to give you accurate and consistent control for each firing.

Check the features:

The Rampmaster 3 is our traditional full featured control and features a 4 digit display. It offers two programming methods depending on your needs and experience: Custom Mode and Express Mode.

 Custom Mode is a programming method that allows you to define all aspects of the firing from temperature rates to set points and hold times. This programming style is perfect for heat treating and custom glass firing programs. Custom Mode offers full artistic control.

Express Mode is a programming method designed exclusively for glass work and offers an easy, 3 step programming process. Simply key in your glass COE, firing style and firing speed to create the firing program. It's quick, it's easy and it's accurate.

The Set-Pro is our economical, 3 button control and features Express Mode and Custom programming along with the traditional 4 digit display.

The Set-Pro with Express Mode allows you to select pre-loaded programs in a quick and easy style. For more advanced firing, the Set-Pro also allows you to define all the firing details using the Custom Mode. Whether you're a beginner or seasoned veteran the Set-Pro with Express Mode has you covered with features and reliable operation.

"On-the-Fly" features allow you to add time and temperature to your holds along with a skip ahead feature.
