- Plug faced Kiln Controller & Thermocouple
The KCR2 is a break through in controller design. Complete with a stand which enables the KCR1 to sit at a comfortable angle on a bench to or to be fixed to the wall.
It is quite unique in that it has its own 13 amp socket outlet with means it can be fitted to any kiln that has a 13 amp plug. Type of kiln and application will vary, so, it is wise to contact us with details of your kiln for suitability. For instance, to fit to an existing enamelling kiln, insert the KCR2 thermocouple into the kiln, plug the kiln into the KCR2 and the plug the KCR2 into any 13 amp socket outlet.
The KCR2 has been designed for ease of use. There are no menus or masses of buttons to confuse!
All values are accessed using the step (black) key, adjustments are made using the up and down (blue) keys and the controller is started and stopped using, the start/stop (green/red) key. Simple.
Whilst it is controlling the kiln, it shows the kiln temperature, whether the kiln is heating or cooling, the present segment number and if the kiln is running or not.
The controller has 9 fully adjustable programs, each program has 9 adjustable segments, each segment consists of a rate of climb/cool, a target temperature and a hold time. A start delay can also be entered. This makes this controller perfect for glass fusing and glass painting and staining applications.
There is a pause feature the enables the user to "freeze" the temperature at any given time during the process. Whilst the controller is in pause mode the display alternates between the kiln temperature and "PAUSED". An audible sounder also beeps every minute or so as a reminder that the kiln is paused.
The KCR2 will show how much electricity has been used during the present/last firing. So you can keep a track of what it costs to fire your glass kiln.
Whilst firing the controller can be forwarded to the next segment if required.
The KCR2 has all the usual safety features such as broken thermocouple detection and various kiln fault alarms.
A 150mm x 3mm M.I. type K thermocouple is included in the package. Delivery is also Included.
