Jen-Ken Programming Instructions

Jen-Ken External Digital Controllers - Prices from $315 USD

• Units are available for 120 V, 15 or 20 amps kilns and 240 V, 20, 30 or 50 amp kilns equipped with standard USA plugs and sockets. Plugs and sockets are available for other countries at additional cost.
• All units come with a 3 button Orton AutoFire3 controller
• Temperature probe included is 1/2 inch in diameter and fits most kiln peep holes
• HEAVY DUTY relays and temperature probes for extremely long life


We are now handling the line of Jen-Ken FULLY PROGRAMMABLE external Digital Controllers for either glass or ceramic kilns. Beware of external digital controllers built with "off-the-shelf" generic controllers. These generic units are VERY confusing to use and are extremely hard to program.

The Jen-Ken's are very easy to set up: simply set your kiln's "infinite" switch to HIGH, plug your kiln into the Jen-Ken controller, and insert the temperature probe into your kiln, usually the peep hole. We also can order these controllers with other types of digital control panels, including control panels that interface with a PC computer.

Shipping within the US is $20.00

KILNS

Jen-Ken Bead Annealer Kilns can easily anneal either soft or borosilicate glass, using their built-in digital controllers. The fusing/slumping models go to 1700 degrees. All models include fire brick 'feet' to elevate the kiln off of its resting surface, protecting it from direct kiln heat.

Jen-Ken Fusing/Slumping 4.5" Brochure

Jen-Ken Fusing & Slumping (Bead Annealer) - (Retails for $495 USD) - Our Price $419 USD

• 11" x 4.5" (inside dimensions) 6-sided kiln
• Specifically made for the warm glass artist.
• Can fuse glass
• Includes Accessory Kit (Includes: 1 - 10 inch diameter kiln shelf, kiln posts, and dry-mix kiln wash.
• Does NOT include a flip up bead door
• Can be ordered in three different inside heights (4.5 inch, *6 inch, and *9 inch)
• Includes pyrometer/analog controller


Same as above except that it has the pyrometer/analog controller. This type controller works well for a fusing-only kiln. Being that the kiln is built with Insulating Fire Brick, it cools slowly enough to anneal small fused items. This price INCLUDES the accessory kit, which is a 10 inch shelf, shelf posts, and kiln wash.

Note: As with ANY kiln with a pyrometer and analog controller, it is not recommended for use as a bead annealer.
