Picture of an installed Vent Control
The Vent Control allows you to control the operation of the Vent-Sure kiln vent with one of the outputs from the Genesis, DynaTrol, and, with limited function, the Genesis-Mini.
For the Genesis or DynaTrol, you set whether the vent is on or off in each segment of a program.
For Genesis Mini the vent control comes on automatically when the program starts and turns off automatically when the program ends (this will be at a high temperature so you will not get any cooling but it will be on when you need the kiln ventilation for fumes).
The Vent Control consists of a relay controlled from output #4 on the Genesis (or DynaTrol) or from the Safety contact on the Genesis-Mini.
There is a female 120-volt receptacle to plug the vent into and a cord to plug into a 120-volt wall outlet. (Note: This is not available for 220-24 volts).
There is a 6-foot wire that connects the control box to the kiln control panel. A grommet is included for non-factory installation.
Where it can be used
If it is used on kilns with powered bottoms (because the same output on the control is used), it will be controlled from the safety output (like on a Genesis-Mini).
It is designed for use with one kiln.
One Vent Control can control between 1-4 vents on a single kiln (if the kiln requires more than one vent).
The Vent Control is only available for 120-volt vents.
Operation for Genesis & DynaTrol
NOTE: These options are set in the "Hidden Menu" in the DynaTrol, and for the Geneis, in MENU / CONFIGURATION / OUTPUT 4 OPTIONS
- Output 4 can be programmed to be on or off during each segment of a Vary-Fire program. During an Easy-Fire program, output 4 comes on at the beginning of the firing and turns off after the kiln has cooled to 150F.
- Output 4 can be programmed to be on or off during each segment of a Vary-Fire program. Output 4 comes on at the beginning of an Easy-Fire program, off at 1450°F, back on after the firing is complete, the kiln has cooled to 1000°F, and finally off again when the temperature is below 150°F.
- Output 4 can be programmed to be on or off during each segment of a Vary-Fire program. Output 4 is off during Easy-Fire programs.
Operation for the Genesis-Mini (used in the School-Master)
- This is all automatic with no configuration options.
