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:

#   Delay Feature:  Allows you to specify the amount of time before a program starts after pressing the "start" button. Up to 100 hours of delay is possible. Perfect if your electricity is metered for "off peak" usage.
# # Hold:  Allows you to specify an amount of time to hold (soak) the end temperature of a segment
#   Alarm:  You can set a temperature that will trigger the buzzer to alert you

  WALL MOUNT CONTROLLERS
 

The SetPro and RampMaster III Controllers are also available as a Wall Mount unit for use with an existing manually controlled kiln.  The manually controlled kiln is "plugged into" into the Wall Mount Control. The Wall Mount is then "plugged into" the power supply. Beyond that, the thermocouple is inserted into the kiln and it's ready to go!

What do I need to know when purchasing a Wall Mount Controller?
You'll need to provide the voltage, phase, amperage and plug configuration of the kiln.  Voltage, phase and amperage is found on the kiln nameplate. To determine plug configuration either contact an electrician or look to our receptacles chart below.
