Industrial Wiring for Jupiter Kilns

Detached control panel

Air Space

  • The control panel is mounted off the kiln with an air space in between it and the kiln - for more reliable operation.

Reliable

  • Switches and sensitive components last longer.

Plug in Sections

  • Kiln sections plug into the panel with flexible cords.

Easy Factory Service

Easy Access

  • The panel door is hinged for easy access to fuses and for service.

Well Laid Out

  • All wiring is neatly laid out for easy maintenance.

Ventilation

  • The instrument panel is well-ventilated.

Power relays with industrial grade wiring

  • Power is switched to the elements with sealed power relays.

branch fusing included on high powered units

Protected Circuits

  • Each element circuit or zone is separately fused on kilns with more than 50 amps. This protects element circuits
  • Meets National Electrical Code requirements.
  • All Jupiter Kilns are listed to UL499 Standards

on/Off switch & control fuse for automatic panels

  • On/Off Toggle Switch breaks power to the electronic control to insure that it is off when you want it to be off.

Safer

  • Some kilns don't have an on/off switch.

Fused

  • Panel mount control fuse protects electronic control.

Power cord for smaller kilns (under 50 Amps)

  • A 50 amp 6-50P six foot power cord is included for J18, J18X, J23, J23PB and J230 single phase models (and automatic versions).
  • A 50 amp 15-50P six foot power cord is included for 3 phase kilns listed above.
  • All other models feature a direct hook-up power terminal block.

Control panels are carefully tested

  • We designed our own special testing device to put each automatic control through a rigorous test before it ships.
  • We actually simulate various temperatures as we put a test program through its paces.
  • We do a high voltage pot test of each power circuit to test for shorts.
