Novus– The N20K48 series of PID (proportional–integral–derivative controller) temperature controllers have been designed for non-experienced novice users for combining extreme simplicity in operation with quality performance found in expensive high-end controllers. The Novus N20K48 can be operated by simply turning on the oven and setting the temperature needed or you can download the free Novus Quicktune App to be able to program the controller more easily via your phone/tablet. The controller can also be programmed by using the onboard buttons and a series of key presses. The Novus N20K48 controller is limited to only storing 20 programs at a time with a max of 9 segments per program.

The HS-1200K comes in either a 15amp/120volt or 20amp/240 volt version. The 15 amp is your standard at-home outlet.

Therefore when choosing a kiln/oven we highly recommend you check your power requirements first. We recommend making sure you have the proper outlet and, if not, to check with a professional about adding an outlet into your work area. DO NOT use extension cords in any situation!
