Home Made Kiln Controller

Recommended Posts

Nice project but I would still favor off the shelf pid temp / soak controllers and standard kiln thermocouples. All very available, reasonably priced and industry proven interfaces. I put together a bare bones PLC and  the cost for two gas kilns, current loops, power supply, cpu, touch screen  etc..... in the hundreds. For home use, If it was not an attempt to learn more about ramp /soak or pid I would even look at the  Bartlett controller. It is in the three hundred range with three zones and pre programmed pid logic. Hard to beat.
