Temperature controller for the UltraLite Studio beehive style kiln.
Through a sliding switch, it gives you a better control over the temperature, and allows you to adjust it between 400-850°C. Simply swap this for the current mains lead supplied with the kiln.
The UltraLite kiln is not programmable, you just plug it in and it fires at a steady 840°C with the lid on, and 620°C with the lid off.
If needed, you can adjust the temperature with this controller which lets you control the temperature between 400-850°C.
Some people wants to lower the temperature when using the kiln for KeumBoo, as that slows down the process and gives you more control. Others prefer it without lowering the temperature - it really is a matter of preference.
We also have a Economy Version of this temperature controller.
