Orton now has a small, stand alone, digital controller available for test kilns. The controller is available in 5 program styles:
Cone-Fire: Allows you to select a preset program for a specific Cone number from Cone 022 to Cone 10. These cone programs are designed specifically for firing ceramics, plus allow you to specify a firing speed and a heat soak at end of firing. Additionally, the controller has 4 ramp/hold program memories with up to 8 segments each.
Ramp/Hold: Allows you to program and store your own heating and cooling rates, target temperatures and hold times. This method can be used for ceramics, heat treating, glass fusing, enameling or jewelry applications. The controller will accept programs as long as 8 segments long: That's 8 separate heating rates, target temperatures and hold times for a single firing. The controller has memory for 6 ramp/hold programs.
Jewelry: Allows you to select one of three preset firing schedules for a 5 hour, 8 hour or 12 hour heating cycle to 1350F and a controlled cooling cycle to 900F with an adjustable final soak temperature. Additionally, the controller has 4 ramp/hold program memories with up to 8 segments each.
Speed: Allows you to select one of five preset ramp rates with a programmable target temperature. The controller has 5 single step programs, with a variable target temperature and a hold/heat soak at the end. Additionally, the controller has 4 ramp/hold program memories with up to 8 segments each.
PMC: Allows you to select one of five pre-programmed firing programs for different types of PMC. The controller has 5 single step programs. Additionally the controller has one ramp/hold program memory with up to 8 segments.
A 6” type K thermocouple is included with a 6 ft lead wire. The controller can be configured for 120 volts or 240 volts power. The power cord is 8 ft long. The maximum current rating is 20 amps. One year warranty.
