Vent Control controls vent operation from the DynaTrol
Vent Control controls vent operation from the DynaTrol

The Vent Control allows you to automatically control the operation of the Vent-Sure kiln vent with one of the outputs from the DynaTrol (or Genesis).

Construction

  • The Vent Control consists of a relay that is controlled from output #4 on the DynaTrol (or Genesis).
  • There is a female 120 volt receptacle to plug the vent into and a cord to plug into a 120 volt wall outlet.
  • There is a 6 foot wire that connects the control box to the kiln control panel. A grommet is included for non-factory installation.

Where it can be used

  • It is only available for kilns with a DynaTrol or Genesis. (Not available on the One-Touch).
  • It may not be used with kilns with powered bottoms (because the same output on the control is used)

Operation

NOTE: These options are set in the "Hidden Menu".

OPTION A (OP A)

Used to control a vent. Output 4 can be programmed to be on or off during each segment of a Vary-Fire program. During an Easy-Fire program, output 4 comes on at the beginning of the firing and turns off after the kiln has cooled to 150F.

OPTION B (OP b)

Used to control a vent. Output 4 can be programmed to be on or off during each segment of a Vary-Fire program. Output 4 comes on at the beginning of an Easy-Fire program, off at 1450°F, back on after the firing is complete and the kiln has cooled to 1000°F and finally off again when the temperature is below 150°F.

OPTION C (OP C)

Used to control a vent, an alarm, or other atmospheric control. Output 4 can be programmed to be on or off during each segment of a Vary-Fire program. Output 4 is off during Easy-Fire programs.
