Genesis - Model LT3140

This unit will be the next generation of kiln controllers with its modern and intuitive user platform. But, because results are what counts, this one also includes the knowledge that is at the heart of every Bartlett controller. We design, manufacture and sell all of our controllers with our customers at the forefront of that process and we insist on procedures and systems to continue to be a reliable and consistent resource for artists. The control strategies that have produced so many successful firings with Bartlett controllers will only be enhanced by this new format of display and user interface.

 

Features

This controller will make firing kilns just a little bit easier in these ways:
*touch-screen technology for the user interface
*easy-to-follow screen descriptions
*different user-interface levels, which can be set to match the user’s firing knowledge
*graphical display of the firing process right at the controller
*Store up to 12 custom user programs
*Up to 32 segments per program
*Ability to make adjustment during a firing such as add segments, add temperature, and skip segments
*Built in diagnostics testing for use with a current sensor
*Alarm
*Error Codes
*WiFi enabled for easy software updating
*Register your Genesis on our web site or mobile app for remote monitoring of your kiln

V6-CF

The V6-CF is Bartlett Instrument Company's fifth generation kiln controller. Each generation has improved the reliability, features and ease-of-use to make Bartlett Instrument Company's kiln controllers the most accepted on the market. With the V6-CF cone-fire method, you select 1 of the 4 firing speeds and your cone number and you're firing your ceramics with as few as 6 key presses! The vary-fire method gives you the freedom to create up to six, 8-step user programs to fire your ceramics, crystalline glazes, glass or jewelry. Other features include delay start, preheat, alarm, cone adjustments, thermocouple adjustments, °F or °C operation, 16 segment program, and skip step. Advanced features of the V6-CF's include 3-zone control and KISS (kiln interface software system) for remote programming and data collection from a personal computer!

 

Features

24-key membrane switch keypad
Selectable # of Zones (or Thermocouples), from 1 to 3
PID control algorithm
Can store up to 6 Ramp/Hold programs (last fired program remains in memory)
8 Segments per program (each segment has a ramp rate to a temperature, and a soak period) , with an option to combine User programs 5 and 6 to get a 16 segment program
Ability to "Skip-Step" (move from one segment to the next ramp)
4 speeds of Preset Conefire Programs , Slow Bisque, Fast Bisque, Slow Glaze, Fast Glaze
Ability to perform a ConeFire to RampHold firing
Ability to perform a delayed start of the kiln
Alarm
Error Codes
Computer Interface Available

RTC-1000

Replacement controllers for DTC 600, 800, and 1000 kiln controllers are available through Bartlett Instrument Co., the original manufacturer of these controllers. The RTC 1000 has all of the same features along with several improvements, including add time, back key, and recall user program to allow easier use of the controller

 

Features

*Cone Fire
*3 choices (Fast, Medium, and Slow) for Speed of a Cone Fire firing compared to 4 choices on a V6CF controller
*Preheat
*6 Ramp/Hold Programs
*Edit-on-the-Fly
*Zone Control
*Thermocouple Offset
