Use The Proper Thermocouple

All Cautions


  1. Never use a different type of thermocouple with your controller unless it has been set up from the factory.
  2. For instance if you used a Type S thermocouple on a control set up for Type K you would overfire your kiln.
  3. On some controls (like the newer DynaTrols) it is possible to change thermocouple types. However, this involves both a programming change and a jumper change on the control. It also requires you to change out all the thermocouple lead wire to properly calibrated wire for the new thermocouple type.
  4. See this link for more information on thermocouple polarity and extension wire hookup.
