Some local fellow is trying to replace his 240 volt ceramics kiln with essentially the same thing wired for 208 volt. I don't know if he has an electronic timer or just a simple kilnsitter that uses pyrometric bars to shut off. If electronic then I understand but if not what difference would it make. Firing times might differ but hot is hot and the cones know when it is just right. The resistor wire shouldn't be that different for 30 nominal volts. What am I missing? or is he just wrong.
