How many times have you wished the kiln could turn itself up? Wishes do sometimes come true! Set the AutoMate II for the desired turn-up time and forget switch schedules. Combine it with your Dawson KilnSitter™, or the new Orton Auto-Cone™ and achieve total automation at the lowest possible cost. Here's how.
The AutoMate II throttles heat-up rates by adjusting the current applied to the kiln's electric heating elements. The turn-up time is adjustable between zero and 10-hours. Manual operation is also possible, and the control is capable of holding the heating rate at any desired level.
The AutoMate II is completely self-contained on a flush mounting panel measuring 5" x 5-3/4", suitable for kiln or electrical panel mounting. It works with either 110vac or 230vac 50/60Hz power. For kilns drawing more than 15-amps, a separate heating relay is required.
