I need the help of people who understand this brand of controller and explain it in non-tech terms. I got a used Cress Kiln and it has one on there and I have no idea how to make it do what I need it to do. I mostly am only firing my ceramics to cone 06 and cone 6.

I am a student and I have to get several pieces done for my next round of critiques. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
