I don't know who is even selling machines anymore besides directly from Scotle or other Chinese company. $500 budget is pretty low considering
you were talking about that Honton 3-zone machine, which is quite expensive. Scotle makes the IR6000 still. Has bottom heat of 1800W and top IR
heater of 450W. I don't see a 110v version. With a step up converter 220v version would get by powering it with a 110v 20A outlet. European guys
never have a issue with trying to get enough power because most of the world went to 220v for everything. Guys in Canada and US are the one's
that struggle using a 110v outlet. This machine is rated 2400w total watts. That is about as big as you can get trying to power with 110v 20A.

I know I sound like I am harping on getting a 220v machine but I would rather have a 220v machine with a converter than 110v machine.
In the future, if you finally have a 220v outlet, you have the option of upgrading heating elements to more wattage without tripping
the breaker. With the 110v machine you have what you have.

Use a 5000w converter/transformer. That Achi machine has a max overall rating of 2500w. You don't want to be working a converter hard all the time.
5000w would run cooler and last longer. Congrats on the machine. Is it an older machine or new? Some of the older Achi's had unlocked PC410 controllers.

In the Advanced Menu settings the "Sn" setting, which is your input setting will have other thermocouple choices rather than just locked to
type K thermocouple. Your "OUT1" setting, which is your main output setting, will have option for analog output like 4-20mA. 95% of PC410
controllers are locked and that is fine. The only folks out there who were interested in an unlocked model were people that modded or did
DIY.

Your machine's manual should show those settings, but looking at the Altec controller manual will give you more info on the controller. PV for Process
Value (shows you the current temp of the TC by the chip) and SV for temperature setting value ( the target temp of that step in your profile ). Here
is a link to the Altec series controller manual. Look on page 11 of the PDF to see what PV and SV are. Look at pages 26 and 27 to see the profile step
settings are. "r" for ramp rate, "l" for target setpoint, and "d" for dwell (time you want to hold that target set point.
