Overview

I'm building an arduino based kiln controller for driving our Kiln.


Goals/Features

  • Add mode button for Candling. (raise temp to 190F and maintain temp for 12 hours.)
  • Add mode buttons for Timed Firing (not sure how this might be useful, but then I know nothing of ceramic arts either. maybe glazing?)
  • Add mode button for Gradual Heating (slowly heat the kiln as opposed to full electric on.)


Materials/Links

Technical Details

  • Status: reading temp and displaying it on lcd display; I'm waiting on the SSR from ebay to start integrated kiln testing. The high fire Type K thermocouple arrived and is installed.
