Temperature control is the heart and soul of the kiln. Evenheat works closely with both SDS Industries and Bartlett Instrument to bring you the latest in technology, performance and design.
Our most popular control is the TAP which combines a large touchscreen with superior performance. The TAP was designed from the start to work with all firing and heat processing styles.
Our Rampmaster and Set-Pro controls offer full firing control in a more traditional 4-digit layout. While the Genesis, with it's ceramic firing vibe, offers a stepped-up Rampmaster feel with ceramic "cone-fire".
The TAP is our premier temperature controller: its wonderfully simple operation, excellent control capability and well laid-out touchscreen just rock. The TAP is, by far, the best performing and best selling temperature control.
Nowhere is simple-use more evident than in the single touch needed to access your firing programs (schedules). Just touch the Start key and all of your programs are immediately displayed for selection. Programs are displayed in full, easy to read text.
Creating your firing programs follows this relaxed feel as well. The TAP walks you through the process with on-screen displays and text that are easily understood and followed. Once created, your programs stay as long as you want them. The TAP has lots of room so feel free to create as many as you wish.
Temperature control is tight and on the mark. Overshoot and ripple are kept to a bare minimum, particularly when coupled with our Quiet Drive Solid State output. Consistency is not an issue as the TAP performs reliably time after time.
The TAP contains preset programs (schedules) for Glass, Ceramic and Metal Clay firing. We do not install preset programs for heat treat as wide variation and personal preference would make them more-or-less useless.
The manufacturer of the TAP (SDS Industries) has created an App for the TAP which is available for iOS devices with the Android version coming soon. Access to the app is available through the TAP's built-in USB Wi-Fi or Ethernet ports.
A dedicated USB Wi-Fi dongle is required for USB connection and can be purchased from Evenheat.
The Rampmaster 3 is our traditional full featured control and features a 4 digit display. It offers two programming methods depending on your needs and experience: Custom Mode and Express Mode.
Custom Mode is a programming method that allows you to define all aspects of the firing from temperature rates to set points and hold times. This programming style is perfect for heat treating and custom glass firing programs. Custom Mode offers full artistic control.
Express Mode is a programming method designed exclusively for glass work and offers an easy, 3 step programming process. Simply key in your glass COE, firing style and firing speed to create the firing program. It's quick, it's easy and it's accurate.
The Rampmaster 3 control will work with our Quiet Drive Solid State Relay System.

The Rampmaster II is our traditional full featured control designed for ceramics and features a 4 digit display. The Rampmaster II features our Cone Fire Mode for easy and effortless ceramic programming. Simply choose your cone number and firing speed and the Rampmaster II automatically creates your ceramic firing program.
The Rampmaster II also allows the artist to develop up to 6 individual firing programs using Ramp Mode programming for full artistic control of all firing parameters. Each firing program offers up to 8 segments per program. The Rampmaster II also contains a group of special features designed to enhance your firing experience.

The Genesis is designed specifically for ceramic use and is only available as an option on our Ceramic models.
The Genesis contains preset ceramic programs and also open positions to store any custom programs. Simply load your custom program into the run position and proceed to edit and modify. You can name your new custom program with up to 16 characters.
The Genesis control will work with our Quiet Drive Solid State Relay System.
The Set-Pro is our economical, 3 button control and features Express Mode and Custom programming along with the traditional 4 digit display.
The Set-Pro with Express Mode allows you to select pre-loaded programs in a quick and easy style. For more advanced firing, the Set-Pro also allows you to define all the firing details using the Custom Mode. Whether you're a beginner or seasoned veteran the Set-Pro with Express Mode has you covered with features and reliable operation.
"On-the-Fly" features allow you to add time and temperature to your holds along with a skip ahead feature.
While the Set-Pro will work with our Quiet Drive Solid State Relays, it is not designed to offer the tight temperature control of our other control choices.
