I am looking at upgrading my skutt kilns to the newer touchscreen interface. Pretty straight forward process. But can you use one of these interfaces on on a competitors kiln. I have a couple old olympics of similar size, ect to a 1027. They are about to become, individually zoned, relayed, ect. Perfect time for an upgrade. I know Bartlet has the Genesis programer, but I like continuity if I can get it.

The Skutt non-touchscreen controller is bigger than the standard Bartlett controller. The touchscreen upgrade has a mounting plate that fits the larger Skutt hole. You could probably put in on your other kilns, but you'd have to drill new holes. Take a look at the installation instructions for the Skutt and make sure there isn't something that would be a problem. The Genesis controller is less expensive than the Skutt upgrade.

I had to build my own box for the olympic controller, so I could get zone control. I'm trying to just mount it to the wall, or a pedestal, so the mount isn't much of a concern. I used a skutt control box rewire kit to build it, because I always have spares. My only wonder, for now lol, is the difference in resistance between the two kilns elements. I couldn't find any info on the olympic 2327 element resistance. Skutt, no problem

Do you mean in terms of the controller? The controller doesn't care about the elements, it just has to switch the relays.

The Genesis is cheaper, but my wife's sanity has value also. It'll be easier for her to fire if there is continuity between the various kiln bodies we have. I don't really care about the app stuff, I've had wifi cameras on my kilns for a couple years. But I do like the very visual way of creating, and tracking our programs.
