    Just leave the knob at C. It will take a while for the humidity of the dry cabinet to drop to ard 40-45% RH. So please be patient. Give it a day to get used to the settings. Changign the setting to "hurry" the RH to drop won't make a difference.

    A, B and C are just settings for the humidity level. They are between Hi and Lo. Lo humidity meaning the RH is low. ie 20% on the indicator. Hi is 100%.

    Don't need to be too dogmatic abt it. The dial settings are not very accurate A, B and C. Maybe the manufacturer should have set it like 10%, 20% etc.

    Just set it to C, let the dehumifier do its job and then tweak the setting a little towards hi or lo depending on the meter reading.

    I live near the sea, so guess for me my enviroment is more humid then most.
    Perhaps C would be too Lo for you.

    The recommended level for camera equipment should be 40-45% I think.

    Yup, try to balance it at 40-45%. Don't open the door in the meantime, that will cause the humidity to go up again. I have no idea what the green light is for, mine is the older version. Uses an analogue meter. Not a digital one. Only has a red light which is the indication that the cabinet is working.

    Then anyone using the digital one?? I just wish to know what the green light is for and will it be off in any situation? And if anyone can tell me what the A, B and C on the knob is for, thanks in advance.

    By the way coke21, did you ever turn your knob before?? When you bought your one by default is it at C or your one is at % form???

    Thanks!

    Mine has the A, B and C markings also. I have only turned it once, thats when I first got my dry cabinet. After I made the setting, have not changed it ever since. No reason to.

    I bought 80 dollars at AP. However I got a discount of 10 dolars as I also bought other things. In overall think not too cheap also la......maybe me too bad at bargaining lor......:-(

    swiftdragon -> May I know did you turn your A B or C knob before?? Which position is your knob in and what is it used for?? Thanks.

    I do recall shifting the knob... I used the trial and error method. I set it to a certain point, wait for a day for the reading to stablise and when I wanted to to hoover ard the 42% mark, I just shifted the knob again.

    JUST GOT MINE TODAY!

    Okay, your questions:

    A,B,C are RH% settings with the side going towards 'A' being the highest. A,B,C are the ranges (recommended in the piece of insert that came with the cabinet) A=55%, B=45%, C=35% with 5% error range.

    The red lamp is the Power indicator and the Green lamp is the humidity indicator.

    Hope all these helps!

    Just make sure that your cabinet is below 50%RH it should be fine already. No need to lose sleep over such a small matter....
