How do I program a slump or tack or full fuse glass program into DynaTrol?

This program is fine for
slumping, tack fusing, or full fusing, just substitute different top
temperatures when programming. The step in the programming marked with a
"*" at the end of it is the one to change.

For slumping use 1220 (Fahrenheit)

For tack fusing use 1350

For full fusing use 1480

You may have to adjust these temps a little higher or lower depending
on your tests.

Additionally the 10 minute hold time at the highest temp may need to
be adjusted longer or shorter as well. This hold time is the number
entered in the next step after the step with the "*" on it.

To enter this program do the following:

  1. Set the toggle switch for the kiln to ON
  2. Press ENTER, Or if it says to WAIT, do it, then look for "IDLE" to
    appear along with TC # and the temp inside.
