I need help in choosing a portable controller for my kiln.

Our portable, wall-mounted controller is called the TnF 2. It will work with kilns of any brand. Information needed to order the TnF 2:

1) What type of controller do you want, 3-key or 12-key?

The TnF 2 controller can be ordered with either the 3-key Sentry Xpress or 12-key Sentry controller. The 12-key controller has more features than the 3-key, such as Firing Cost, which gives the electrical cost of each firing. But even the 3-key has Skip Segment, Add Hold Time (during a firing), Change Temperature (during a firing), Thermocouple Offset, Temperature Alarm, Delay, and Program Review.

2) What is the NEMA configuration and voltage of the wall outlet that your kiln uses?

The 3-key Sentry Xpress TnF 2 can be ordered for 120 volt kilns in 15 or 20 amps. The 12-key Sentry TnF 2 can be ordered for 200 - 240 volts and up to 60 amps. The TnF 2s are rated for wall receptacle amperage, not kiln amperage. Please furnish the wall receptacle NEMA configuration number (i.e. 6-50R) and voltage. We can also make 3-phase TnF 2s.

3) What is the kiln's maximum temperature?

That temperature is listed on the kiln's electrical data plate. (It is a small black plate riveted to the side of the switch box on most kiln models.)

4) Do you make ceramics?

If so, we will send the controller version for ceramics, which includes Cone-Fire and Ramp-Hold. Glass controllers have the Ramp-Hold version only.
