    After putting in all your gears, the RH will increase again.

    I think the administrators should create a dedicated dry cabinet forum.

    No, get a cup of coffee / tea / whatever you like and exercise patience. You have a dry cabinet, not a shock freezer.
    While exercising patience you could read the sticky threads about dry cabinets in the Equipment forum (-> Others), just in case you feel bad about doing nothing while the dry cabinets works

    chill..relax..whats there to adjust when you already adjust? the RH will go up because u opened the cabinet. The RH in the cabinet and what we are breathing now is different. Which explains why it increases everytime if you were to open the cabinet. It will go back in awhile.

    It's not calibration, it's a simple setting where 'red' stands for 'dry' and 'blue' for 'humid'.

    hmmm... so it should be red? cos blue is in the middle iirc.
    i set it to around the blue region facing 1am/pm from like 11pm to like 7:30am till i woke up but the RH still did not decrease. not sure why though.

    The setting should be around 1 to 2 am/pm for Digi cabi, wait for the next day & adjust according to the RH% u wish.

    it depends..whats the % after u keep/take your equipment and close the cabinet.. im just quoting the maximum time needed from my personal observation. Yea it took awhile to go back 42%.. to go 55%..about 4-3hrs? It really depends sometimes its fast sometimes its slow. End of the day..it goes back to the range i want. Im happy. I dont use digital.

    Digital .. Analog .. does not matter, it's just a matter of display. The time for returning to target RH depends on volume, condition of equipment, RH of ambient air and the performance of the dehumidifier unit. The external power consumption is rated 4W for the smaller cabinets and up to 10W for the large ones.
    Of course one can achieve 45% target RH within 10 minutes - at different costs of equipment and power consumption. But: it's simply not necessary.

    Thats right...before you had a dry cabinet or when you were in the field shooting..the RH % was so much higher..
    Btw...the cabinet only use 5W... so you dont expect immediate result...

    Set it to beginning of red section (regardless whether it's 3am or 11pm) and wait. First smaller result should be visible within 3..6h
