Thread: Anyone using Digicabi's 30L dry cabinet?

  1. #1

    Default Anyone using Digicabi's 30L dry cabinet?

    I just got one today. Been adjusting the knob the whole day...humidity always drop to around 38-40...which is too low right?

    Fellow users, where is your knob turned to? Halfway in the green zone? Or the blue area?

    Would appreciate any help. Thanks!

    I assume you are using the AD series, try something like 8-9pm.
    but first, open the door to make the humidity go up to around 60.

    new cabinet must wait for a few week to stablize.... if not it will just keep dropping... no matter how dim u adjust.... just on it for a few week.....( don't put anything inside)..... then adjust again.....

    Too low...

    Make the knob toward 8 o'clock. Green light should be dimmed than current one.

    I think 38-40%RH is quite fine. Anyway, after the dehumidifier shutoff on reaching the setpoint, the humidity will climb slightly especially when your cabinet is loaded.

    Hmm... I'm wondering whether the RH needs to be that critically adjusted? 38% and 45% is like 7% difference. I don't think that 7% difference will make that much of a difference. When I was in the US, Arizona, the average RH there is like 20%, that means I gotta get a humidifier for my cameras??

    Just a thought to ponder about.

    If u're using the AD series, the new one comes with only 1 light, which is green.

    I got mine last week and even at 9 o'clock position it will reach about 30-34% RH and then stays at that range.

    So I put it at the 8 o'clock range and it was about 43%. Have to monitor it.

    We all know that the Digital 30 ltr cost $99. What's the price diff if it were the Analog 30 ltr?
