V8 - Your Vitrigraph Kiln

Vitrigraph Base

The V8 Vitrigraph model features a specially designed floor with a 2.75-inch hole precision-machined into its base, specifically for conducting Vitrigraph projects. Additionally, the V8 serves a dual purpose, functioning as a standard kiln when the base is swapped with an alternative one that lacks the Vitrigraph cut-out. (This is an optional purchase.) This versatility makes the V8 an exceptionally multi-functional tool.

Vitrigraph Pots up to 7.5" in Diameter

The V8 stands out for its optimal utilization of floor space, offering the most effective use of space among kilns of its size. This efficiency in space usage is achieved by strategically placing the thermocouple (the temperature sensor) at the corner of the chamber, rather than on a flat side.

The kiln accommodates Vitrigraph pots with diameters up to 7.5 inches. This larger size allows for more material to be processed in a single session, reducing the need for frequent reloading and waiting.

When it comes to Vitrigraph projects, the V8's design significantly reduces the limitations on project size that are often encountered with other brands, enhancing its versatility and appeal.

Stackable Design

The V8 Vitrigraph features a modular, stackable design, enabling artists to swiftly transition from a vitrigraph setup to a standard kiln configuration within minutes.

This stackable design not only facilitates quick conversion but also simplifies the placement and setup of the kiln, as each component can be positioned independently. For artists who frequently switch between vitrigraph and standard modes, or for those who travel with their equipment, this stackable functionality proves to be extremely convenient and practical.

Swing View Equipped

The V8's temperature controls are integrated into Evenheat's innovative Swing View Adjustable Enclosure.

This feature includes a versatile, swing-up enclosure that enables you to pivot and adjust the control panel to your preferred viewing and programming angle. After setting it up, you can easily lay it back down, allowing for clear visibility from across your studio. The process is straightforward and user-friendly.

The Swing View is particularly compatible with touchscreen controls such as the TAP II, Icon+, and Icon, as it allows for the viewing angle to be precisely aligned. This feature is sure to enhance your studio experience.

Relay Access Port

The V8 is designed with a convenient Relay Access Port, which simplifies the process of replacing relays without the hassle of removing the entire control panel.

To access the mechanical relay, all you need to do is remove the access plate, eliminating the need to delve into the internal wiring of the kiln. This process is straightforward and efficient, requiring nothing more than a screwdriver.

Given that mechanical relays are bound to fail eventually, having this easy-access port is a significant advantage, making maintenance and replacements much more manageable.

The V8 Vitrigraph offers an array of control options, including the Icon, RampMaster 3, Icon+, and Tap II.

At Evenheat, they enhance the top control platforms available by incorporating Special Limits thermocouples for accurate temperature measurement and using non-metallic faceplates to ensure excellent Wi-Fi reception for online applications.

Icon

The Icon controller, developed from the innovative Bartlett Spark platform, has set a new standard in the industry with its advanced touchscreen technology, making it the go-to controller for the V8 Vitrigraph.

During the latter half of 2023, the Icon underwent rigorous field testing on the latest version of the Bartlett Industry's Spark platform. This testing phase was a joint venture between Bartlett, Evenheat, and other industry leaders, yielding impressive outcomes. The programming was lauded for its intuitive, user-friendly design, the touchscreen interface garnered widespread praise, and the Quiet Drive Solid State relay exhibited outstanding performance, culminating in a highly successful testing phase.

Consistent with Evenheat's dedication to pioneering control technology, the Icon enhances the Spark platform even further. It integrates Special Limits thermocouples for unmatched temperature accuracy and features non-metallic faceplates to improve Wi-Fi connectivity. This ensures a smooth interaction with the Bartlett online app. These innovations place the Icon at the pinnacle of control technology in the industry, elevating it beyond conventional expectations and delivering superior performance and value.

RampMaster 3

The RampMaster 3, developed from Bartlett Instruments' V6-CF platform, is tailored for glasswork but also shines in applications like heat treating. It's an ideal option for those who prefer a more traditional interface, featuring dedicated buttons and a clear display, over a touchscreen.

Exploring the Advantages of Solid-State Relays: A Technological Revolution in Kiln Design

Solid-state relays represent a substantial improvement over traditional mechanical relays, which rely on physical contacts and electromagnetism. SSRs employ a solid semiconductor, eliminating moving parts, thereby minimizing wear and significantly improving the precision of kiln temperature control.

Advantage 1 - Enhanced Longevity:

SSRs are renowned for their extended lifespan, free from the mechanical wear and electrical arcing that are common issues in mechanical relays. Mechanical relays can be identified by their characteristic clicking sound, indicative of operation and eventual wear, necessitating maintenance. By contrast, Evenheat's SSRs operate silently and reliably, significantly prolonging their functional life to align with the lifespan of your kiln.

Advantage 2 - Superior Temperature Control:

While mechanical relays typically cycle between 10 to 14 seconds to balance control and durability, SSRs can cycle as frequently as 120 times per second. This rapid cycling allows for swift adjustments and remarkable temperature precision. Every control system from Evenheat, including the sophisticated Icon controller, benefits from the rapid cycling of SSRs, ensuring unmatched accuracy in temperature regulation.

Advantage 3 - Extended Life of Heating Elements:

SSRs employ Zero Crossing technology, activating at the zero-voltage point in AC power cycles. This approach prolongs the life of heating elements by maintaining optimal voltage levels, unlike mechanical relays, which lack this level of precision.

Design Distinction - 30 Amp Capacity:

Evenheat opts for 30-amp rated SSRs but operates them conservatively at 15 amps. This design choice provides a significant safety margin, ensuring that the SSRs function within their derating curve even under a 15-amp load, leading to cooler operation and extended lifespan. This reflects Evenheat's commitment to superior design and safety standards.

Design Distinction - Externally Mounted SSR Heatsinks:

The durability of SSRs is greatly dependent on effective cooling. To address this, Evenheat mounts the SSR heatsinks externally, promoting better airflow and preventing heat buildup inside the control box. This design strategy prevents heat transfer between the enclosure and the SSRs, with standoffs creating an air gap for additional cooling. This thoughtful design guarantees optimal performance of the SSRs, underscored by an impressive six-year record of zero failures.
