The EZ2Set Kiln Temperature Control System
Designed with the Artist in Mind.
Multi-Step - Multi-Profile - Modular and Really Easy to Use

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Most kiln controllers are developed by engineers with only a remote idea what the fused glass artist wants or needs.  Ours was a collaborative effort between the artist and the engineer.

Having experience developing the accurate and reliable EZ-Set 1 and 2 model set point controllers, we decided to develop from scratch and produce a full featured multi-profile, multi-ramping, computer based kiln controller.

The EZ2Set was designed from the outset to incorporate revolutionary improvements in ease of use, accuracy and versatility.

Every time I would say "will it do this?"  Gary would say No, Well Maybe, Oh, OK.
So the result was that I got everything in this newest kiln controller that I want and have ever wanted.

The precision, ease of use and ability to store ramp and hold profiles make the EZ2Set perfect for Glass fusing, Bead annealing, Enamel, Cloisonné, Precious Metal Clay and Low Fire Ceramics.   (I work in all these mediums and I love the EZ2Sets versatility).

The lighted character display and the menu navigation system provide a really easy to use Personal Computer like interface for getting around in the EZ2Set.

From the simplest setting, the QuickRamp where you set the time to get to a specific temperature and a hold time at that temperature,  to the user savable, multi-ramping, multi-step programs, this controller is fabulous.

Each function is in understandable English and operation really is intuitive.

I have a large kiln with the conventional digital controller that came with it and every time I use it I have to spend considerable time with its manual and trial and error to figure out what I am doing. I operate the EZ2Set without even having to glance at the very detailed manual that Gary has written.

You can insert up to 64 named ramp and hold profiles of up to ten segments each, plus we include 10 preset profiles. Profiles can be used as is or easily tuned as desired during firing. Profiles can also be easily edited and resaved as new profiles or overwriting the existing ones.

The EZ2Set now includes a user adjustable temperature alarm that can be set to sound when the EZ2Set gets to any user selected temperature or at the highest temperature of the firing profile. The EZ2Set also beeps breifly at every ramp / hold transition.

The EZ2Set has some truly significant technical innovations which improve its accuracy, reliability and versatility.

  1. Solid state relays are much more reliable than the normal magnetic ones and also permit much faster cycling (1 second on the EZ2Set, generally longer than 30 seconds on other controllers). Temperature over and undershoot are tremendously reduced and accuracy is greatly increased.
  2. A newly developed monolithic thermocouple amplifier used in the EZ2Set is far more accurate and less subject to drift than the discreet techniques found in other controllers.
  3. The sloped computer style case and simple plug and play connection to the kiln make installing and using the EZ2Set a real joy

The 110volt 15amp version of the EZ2Set kiln controller with six foot type K thermocouple is now available in the continental US with a one year warranty for the introductory price of $395.00 including shipping.

Purchasers of any EZ2Set kiln controller may upgrade to any "Option" at any time. Please Email us for Details.

Options for The EZ2Set Kiln Controller System.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EZ2Set+ Option - $95.00           Ez2Set Dual Kiln Option - $95.00

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EZ2Set+ large 4 Line by 40 Character Display and upgraded menu system makes it even easier and faster to use than the standard EZ2Set.

The EZ2Set+ option also upgrades the number of savable ramp / hold steps from 10 to 16 available for each of the up to 64 user firing profiles. This means that even the most intricate firing schedule can be easily accomodated.

The Dual Kiln Switch option for the EZ2Set or EZ2Set+ makes it very easy to switch between 2 kilns for sequential firings without having to move the controller from one kiln to another.

The Dual Kiln Switch option adds a multi-pole high current switch and a second power control cord and thermocouple.The Dual Kiln Switch option is even compatible with our 220 volt Power Modules so you can switch between any combination of 110 and 220 volt kilns if you choose.

Purchasers of the EZ2Set kiln controller may upgrade to either or both the "EZ2Set+ Option" or the "Dual Kiln Switch Option" at any time. Please Email us for Details.

220 Volt Power Module: 30amp $175.00, 60amp $275.00

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Our Dual Solid State Relay Power Module Instantly Adapts the EZ2Set to be able to control larger 220 volt kilns.

The Dual Solid State Relay Power Module uses two industrial quality solid state relays for reliable fast cycling and for electrical safety. (Both kiln element hot leads are electrically disconnected when the controller is off.)

The Dual Solid State Relay Power Module is completly compatible with the the EZ2Set, EZ2Set+, Dual Kiln version and even our EZSet set point controller listed below.

Due to the Variety of 220 volt receptacles and plugs, each Dual Solid State Relay Power Module is custom wired for the desired kiln when it is ordered.

2550 Degree Fahrenheit Extended Temperature Option: $95.00

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The 2550 Degree Extended Temperature Option modifies the internal electronics of the EZ2Set line to provide a useful range between 0 and 2550 degrees Fahrenheit instead of the standard 0 to 2080 degrees.

An industrial quality high temperature grade type K thermocouple is also included that is designed to withstand the higher temperatures.

This modification is essential for high fire "Cone 10" ceramics firing but is generally not necessary for low fire ceramics or most other uses.

Purchasers of any of the EZ2Set kiln controller line may upgrade to the extended temperature version at any time. Please Email us for Details.

EZSet Set-Point Kiln Temperature Controller

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For those who would prefer a simple set point controller (you simply set a target temperature and the kiln goes to and holds that temperature until you turn it off) we offer the excellent and affordable, industrial quality EZSet in the continental US with a one year warranty for $245.00 including shipping.
