Is the vent-sure controlled by the kiln or is there a separate power supply?

  1. The vent is separate from the kiln.
  2. Generally speaking the vent is powered by its own 120 volt circuit (or for most non-USA locations a 220 to 240 volt standard plug power supply).
  3. However, sometimes you see the vent, the ambient exhaust fan and the kiln power all connected to a big switch upstream from the kiln. 
  4. This forces the user to have the fans on if the kiln is on in case they forget to do it.


  1. See this option for controlling the vent.
  2. Available for any kiln with a DynaTrol or Genesis control.
