The Autofire4000 accepts Type K, N, S and R thermocouple inputs for operation up to 3308F. Power Fail Recovery: Allows the kiln to resume the firing when power interruptions occur from thunderstorms or accidental shut-down. Type K thermocouples are the most common and can be used reliably if the kiln is mostly fired to Cone 6 2232°F or below. Be sure to tightly crimp down and terminal ends and make sure there are no loose wire ends. For more information please visit their website at www. Cone Table: Provides the operator a look-up table for cone number temperatures. Program Skip Step: Allows the operator to move ahead to any step in the firing program.
The Autofire4000 can be utilized as a single zone controller or as a multi-zone controller for optimizing temperature uniformity within larger kilns. Connection wires are needed to make connections among a kiln's elements, control box, relays and terminal strips. Each kiln would require a relay wall unit for attaching the hand held controller. This ensures the kiln firing will produce the perfect results even as the kiln ages and conditions change. We communicate with customers to fully understand their specifications.
The current software version is 1. Automatic controllers offer improved temperature uniformity, repeatability and accurate kiln firing result. Add-time: Allows the operator to lengthen the current hold period without interrupting the kiln firing. Headquartered in London, their equipment is placed worldwide into plants and offices in more than 100 different countries. Galaxy prides itself on quality, delivery, price and communication with customers. For routine firings above Cone 6, Type S is recommended.
The benefit of the hand-held controls is that it's interchangeable with multiple wall units. Multi Zone control will improve the temperature uniformity from top to bottom in the kiln. Galaxy can reverse engineer an electronic wire harness product and provide a detailed list of components, dimensions and other pertinent information. When Galaxy manufactures electronic wire harnesses, a 100% visual and electrical inspection in performed. Galaxy typically builds a wire harness mate to make sure when an electrical test is performed the wire harness matches exactly what the customer has specified on their drawing.
The AutoFire4000 controller is available in the hand-held option. User Defined Mode User Programs: The controller allows the operator to create, program and save 35 separate firing schedules with 20 user defined heating and cooling rates, target temperatures and hold times. Whatever the market demands, we have the capabilities to produce it. Because these wires and connectors are rated for high temperature, there is little chance of melting or causing damage to relays, elements or your control box -- and this is exactly why it is a good idea to purchase connection wires from a knowledgeable, ceramics-specific parts distributor. Electronic wire harnesses can be simple point to point connections to complex designs with numerous branches. Wire drum cones are must own for anyone who likes to keep things organized.
To direct and protect cables, Marconi manufactures a megaphone-shaped communications cone. Waytek has wires and cables for just about every electrical project. Status Display: Allows the operator to view the current firing step and the actual heating or cooling rate of the active firing. Safety Temperature limits: Allows the kiln manufacturer to set a limitation on the top programmable firing temperature. For more information please visit their website at www. A variety of cord sets can be substituted at no additional charge. Stand-alone Models are compatible with most brands of electric kilns and can be supplied with a variety of power cords and kiln receptacles for plug-n-play installation.
Galaxy excels at custom wire harness manufacturing, with low minimum order requirements and engineering design services to help meet specific electronic wire harness manufacturing needs. Utilizing its expertise in electronic wire harness manufacturing, Galaxy works with customers from the design and prototype phase of a project all the way through large production runs. Thermocouple Offset: Allows the operator to adjust the temperature display accuracy by as much as ±25°C ±45°F to offset aging thermocouple s. Every Cone-fire program also allows the operator to select an optional firing speed that can shorten or lengthen the firing time up to 40% for large or small kiln loads. Thermocouple Alarms: Notifies the user of a defective thermocouple or a thermocouple that is connected with reverse.
The Aux outputs can also be used to control safety relays, external alarms or a firing complete notification device. Wire barrel cones are available at Waytek to keep clutter out of your drums and to help you conveniently pull the correct amount of wire from your drums. This allows the controller to be removed from the kiln, allows you to use the controller on multiple kilns equipped for the controller and allows flexibility in the location of the programmable keypad. If your harness requires printing for identification, we have four ink jet printers that can print on any color of wire. In most cases, rewiring your kiln or replacing parts will require a wire stripper and a crimping tool available at your local hardware store.
Galaxy will run continuity tests and hipots test when requested on 100% of the harnesses manufactured. Electronic Wire Harness Manufacturing Technical Capabilities Galaxy has highly skilled manufacturing personnel on staff. The vent fan can be selected on or off for each heating or cooling step of the firing schedule. And although some of their systems are wireless, much of their equipment is not. The controller can easily be removed and stored away to prevent unauthorized use of the controller.
