Messages and Information are available for reviewing a firing profile before or during the firing, viewing the current segment the firing is in, and cone table for easy look up of temperature and cone number equivalents. The FL53E is equipped with its own breaker box for easy access, safety and lockout.
Additional options include upgrading to the Genesis touchscreen controller, 480 volt, Type S thermocouple, castors, vent, car kiln, and much more!
The Bartlett RTC 1000 Digital Controller gives you the freedom to create up to six, 8-step user programs. Other features include delay start, preheat, alarm, cone adjustments, thermocouple adjustments, °F or °C operation, 16 segment program, and skip step.

Why Upgrade from Mechanical Relays to Solid-State Relays?
Mechanical Relays, which come standard on most kilns have internal moving parts which over time wear out and need to be replaced. Kiln manufacturers recommend you replace your mechanical relays approximately every 2 years. Solid-state relays have no moving parts and last far longer than standard mechanical relays and offer far better temperature control during hold times. Since solid-state relays also have no moving parts to wear out, they NEVER need to be replaced. You will notice that solid-state relays are silent. The only sound you will hear is just the reassuring hum of the heating elements. So, this factory upgrade saves you potential downtime from having to wait for new relays to arrive, potential over-fires from relays sticking in the closed position, potential aggravation from having to learn how to remove and replace the mechanical relays yourself. We think this upgrade is well worth the cost and will save you time and aggravation over the life of your kiln.
NOTE*** This kiln is delivered fully assembled. No assembly is required on site. This kiln will require private freight company delivery as it cannot be sent through regular (LTL- less than truckload) shipping as it will require the entire truck. The carrier is responsible for transporting the freight but not for unloading it. Large capacity kilns 20 cubic feet and larger require the customer to have a forklift that can move the kiln from the truck to the desired location. If you do not have access to a forklift, check the internet or yellow pages for small moving companies that can take the freight off the freight carrier and move the freight to the desired location. Give any prospective mover a physical description of the kiln and its weight, and inform them that it is designed to be picked up with a truck and a forklift only. It is your responsibility to move the freight from the truck to its place of use.
