hmmm... i'm facing a problem now... my dri cabi humidity is around 40% or lower... no matter how i adjust... the % is mention as above...
is there anything that can i do to increase the humidity to 45% - 50%?
should i leave the door of the dri cabit open with the power supply off for a nite?
Otaru: If you open the door to the dry cabi, does the humidity rise (as indicated by the hygrometer)?
A few things. Like how long does it take for the humidity in the dry cabinet to drop to the desired level, with the dryer turned off, how much does the humidity rise every hour. How often does the dryer need to be activated to keep the cabinet dry. Where is the best position to place the humidity sensor. and some other stuffs..
I place my cabi in the store room. The temp is 30degreee and RH is 46. Is it adviseable to place the cabi in the store room, knowing that the humility is quite high in store room.
BTW, your example shown something funny:
Ok, based on your example, it need more time to drop the humidity to desired level in lower temperature. Thus you said dry cab need to work harder.
But, if you look into internet, the temperature and humidity in Singapore usually around 30degC and humidity >70%RH. And cold country like Australia, said IF 23degC, the humidity is around 50%. Your example shown different way, humidity rise up with the temperature drop.
I am not against you or anyone, but I just don't like misleading information around. If you think you are correct, please explain. And if I am wrong, I apologize and I will correct myself.
can i have the phone number for digicabi? tks

I understand where you are getting at. Let's put it this way. There are 3 variables that will determine relative humidity. They are 1) actual moisture content, 2) temperature and 3) atmospheric pressure.
In my example above, I had assumed that the cabinet is air tight, so the actual moisture content and the atmospheric pressure remains constant. So the only variable is temperature.
On the other hand, Australia is a dry country, and I'm refering to the absolute moisture content wise. That's why in Australia, the temperature may be 23 deg celsius, yet the RH is only 50% or less.
This is also the reason why there can be water condensing outside the windows of air-conditioned building. Even in the dry cabinet, the humidity may be around 50% at 32 deg celsius, but if the air-con is turned on and if the dryer does not turn on in time, condensation may still occur in the dry cabinet.
