    at 9 oclock it gives me 50% tho i used the diff model

    since 9oclock only give you ard 60% you can try turning it to 11 or 12 oclock

    Tried before various settings but seems that the 9 o'clock position is the most effective, if turn to 11-12 o'clock position the RH seems to increase.

    Digi-Cabi recommendation is 40-50% RH for photographic equipments. Just follow the manufacturer who already done the research for it. Read the manual.

    I put mine on 44% RH.

    Arto.

    for me anywhere between 45-50%....yeah have to monitor the humidity levels and adjust accordingly...will take at least couple of days to stabilize (assuming the dry cabi is not opened within this period)...

    Most of the time, cheapo analog meters are the ones which are inaccurate. Do the moist salt test to test your meter's accuracy. Be sure to use a nylon bag instead of a plastic bag for better sealing.
