Yes. We call the stand-alone controller the TnF 2. It is housed in a switch box that includes a cord and an electrical outlet.
1) The TnF 2 controller plugs into your wall outlet.
2) Your kiln, in turn, plugs into the outlet on the TnF 2 controller.
3) Turn the kiln switches to High. The cone in the Kiln Sitter should be one cone hotter than the firing. (When you use a stand-alone controller, the Kiln Sitter becomes a safety backup.)
4) The controller comes with a thermocouple, which is a temperature sensor. Mount the thermocouple on your kiln. (Instructions come with the TnF 2.)
5) Place a cone in the Kiln Sitter. Load the kiln.
6) Program the controller and monitor the kiln during firing.
The controller uses a relay to turn on power to your kiln. (The relay is a special switch designed to carry a large amount of electricity.) The relay controls the rate of temperature rise by turning the power on and off throughout the firing.
Your TnF 2 controller must have the proper electrical outlet for the kiln you are using. You can use the controller to fire more than one kiln, but only one kiln at a time.
