Paragon Xpress-E-9A

The smallest size E-series, the digital Xpress-E-9A fires to 2000°F- ideal for enameling, china painting, glass art and jewelry. The digital Sentry Xpress controller includes temperature hold, making this kiln suitable for silver clay. The 3-key digital controller is in the base. The front control panel is tilted for easy operation of the digital controller. Because this model no longer has the side-mounted switch box, it saves tabletop space.

The Sentry Xpress 3-key controller is packed with features. It includes two modes: Single Segment and 8-segment Ramp-Hold.

Features of the Sentry Xpress 3-key Controller on the Paragon Xpress-E-9A

  • Design programs with up to 8 segments (steps) in Ramp-Hold mode.
  • Fire to a single temperature at a single speed in the simplified Single Segment mode.
  • Ramp-Hold mode can store 4 programs.
  • Skip Segment feature in Ramp-Hold mode
  • Temperature hold
  • The Sentry Xpress can control both heating and cooling.
  • Program Review lets you check that the program you are about to fire is correct.
  • Temperature Display throughout firing and cooling in your choice of °F or °C
  • Error Messages report mechanical problems such as a disconnected thermocouple, stuck relay or broken element.
  • 12 Month Warranty
  • LED Lights show whether you are in program, review, or firing mode.

The heating element, exposed in dropped, recessed insulating firebrick grooves, is easy to replace. It needs no element pins. Unlatch and open the door with one hand. No extra stand is needed; the built-in base stays cool during operation.

An optional switch is available that will turn off the elements when you open the door.  This is available for a $60 additional fee.  Please let us know if you want this added to the kiln in the comments section.  NOTE: some countries require this and it will have to be added to the kiln or it can be turned away at customs.
