The Benefits of TAP Conversion Kits

Working with digital kiln controllers can be challenging initially and often entails a steep learning curve due to their confusing user interfaces. Most digital kiln controllers on the market are far from user-friendly, with complicated controls, nearly illegible text, and seemingly hidden menu items.

With TAP Kiln Controllers, we have narrowed down our focus to two areas: simplicity and precision, and our users benefit from the following features:

This means that firing schedule development and review is completed in full-text on a large format, high-contrast, touch-controlled screen. Utilizing full-text, alpha-numeric firing schedule titles means you never have to guess what schedule you are looking for.

The TAP Kiln Control Mobile App (available on iOS and Android) enables users to monitor their kiln, develop and edit programs, create new schedules, modify settings, review logs, and perform TAP Controller functions from their mobile device.

One of the most essential aspects of digital kiln controllers is the real-time look into the diagnostics of the kiln. TAP provides the ability to program life settings relative to Relays, Elements, and Thermocouples. When these life settings are stored in the controller, TAP will notify, via audible and visual alerts, that components are nearing the end of their usable life. This insight keeps users informed of the health and status of the kiln and allows for the replacement of critical components before they fail.

TAP empowers users to make adjustments on-the-fly, whether they be adjusting setpoint kiln temperatures, hold times, or skipping ahead during the firing process. Changes are updated in real-time and are displayed in full text along with a visual graph of the chamber temperature so the firing history can be observed while it is taking place.

Users can use either pre-loaded firing schedules from their kiln manufacturer or create their own custom firing schedules. The process of creating custom firing schedules is simple, and only requires the user to enter a schedule title of their choosing, enter firing details, and save.

The Standalone Kiln Controllers enable you to easily upgrade your manual kiln with all the cutting-edge functionality of the TAP kiln controllers for sale. Installation of the controller, which comes preloaded with the control software is simple and requires nothing more than reviewing the provided plug and receptacle chart and identifying which style power cord the kiln uses. After that information is determined, users can simply select from the configuration options and get to work.

TAP uses a PID control algorithm to ensure that schedules are accurately followed. The algorithm also enables fast response, minimal overshoot, and limited state ready error for superb control performance.
