CERAcontrol 10: 10 programs, 10 segments - Kiln Controller
CERA-10 has 10 programs each with 10 segments. Delay start and program pause. Each segment has a heating/cooling ramp, a target temperature and a soak. This controller is ideal for firings where a range of programs are frequently used.
It can be used for any firing requiring close control over multiple heating and cooling ramps such as macro crystalglazes and for glass slumping and fusing.>

A period of time to elapse before controller starts a firing, for example, inorder to make use of off-peak power.
The rate of heating up or cooling down, usually expressed in number of degrees per hour, e.g. 150°C per hour. A Kiln firing to 600°C at 150°Cper hour would take 4 hours.
Set Point/Target temperature
The temperature at which the controller changes the ramp rate, starts to soak or switches off. For example aprogram might fire at 100°C perhour to the first set point of 600°C then fire at 250°C per hour to top temperature of1120°C.
The period of time that the kiln is held at a temperaturein order to smooth out glazes oreven out temperature in the kiln. Typically 15 to 20 minutes.
Segment One partof the program, usually consisting of a ramp, a target temperature and a soak.
Output from a controller tooperate an automatic damper, opening and closing it during the firing.
