Designed by Glass Artists
The GlassMaster controller is the product of years of research. We asked artists and glass manufactures all over the country what features they would like to see in a controller. The result is a controller that's extremely easy to program and offers the flexibility of a wide array of innovative features.

Ease of Programming
The key layout on the GlassMaster is designed to be easy to understand and efficient. Multifunction keys allow you to load and review saved programs with a minimum amount of key strokes.

@

Adjustments can be made even during the firing without interruption. Beginners and professionals alike will appreciate the logical design of the layout.

@

Innovative Features
There are two programming modes available on the GlassMaster.

@

The Glass Fire Mode allows you to access factory installed programs designed for general fusing, slumping, and tack fusing. While the type of glass, the thickness, and the techniques may vary with each project there are some general heating and annealing principals that are common.

@

The Glass Fire Mode allows you to choose from 3 different firing speeds and since you control the point at which the kiln goes into the annealing phase this easy programming mode can be used quite often.

GlassMaster Control Features

LED Display

The GlassMaster can be programed in Fahrenheit or Celsius.

MENU allows access to advanced programming features.

The Review key displays the program that is currently loaded.

If an error is made the programmer can press BACK to input the correct data.

The Start key begins the program.

The Anneal key is pressed when the glass has attained the desired heatwork and the artist wishes to begin the annealing process.

The Stop key will stop the program at any point in the firing.

Add Time key adds time to the final heating segment in increments of 5 minutes during the firing.

The Glass Fire key accesses preset fusing, slumping, and tack fusing programs with choices of varying firing speeds.

Add Temp adds 5 degrees F of heat to the final heating segment.

The Cycle key is used in conjunction with the Glass Fire and key to choose various options.

The View key will display the current segment of the firing program.

Ramp Hold allows the professional to construct and store their own specialized firing programs.

For quick access to stored Ramp Hold programs simply press the Recall key.

Here's how it works!

In Glass Fire Mode all you need to do is match your project to the chart to determine the correct firing speed, choose whether you want to Full Fuse, Tack Fuse, or Slump, and press Start.

FAST

1/8" THICK -18" DIAMETER OR SMALLER

Use Ramp and Hold Mode for projects that require more specialized fire programs. In this mode you choose the number of segments, enter the Rate, Temperature and Hold Time for each segment and press start.

The Ramp Hold Mode allows you to design and store your own programs for specialized projects. You can you use up to 16 segments which consist of a temperature, a heating or cooling rate, and a hold time if one is desired. You can store up to 6 of your programs for easy recall.

The Add Time, Add Temp, and Anneal features allow you to control the final segment of the heating phase so the kiln begins annealing when you want it to.

The View key allows you to check the current segment. The display constantly displays the temperature and hold times throughout the firing.
