Thread: Question about dry cabinet

    Default Question about dry cabinet

    Hi, i just bought a digi cabinet and have turned on the power for quite a while already. Yet, the RH value still remains at around 70%. I have turned the dials to both extreme ends already but i have yet to see much changes in the RH values. Should i wait longer to see the effects or is there something wrong with my cabi?

    Alright is what gives you the recommended RH. Depending on the conditions in your place the settings will differ from the settings other people use.

    leave it for about 6-8 hours. if it number doesnt even change then it may be a faulty reader or the humidity thingy isnt working..

    What does the RH value mean?

    RH stands for Relative Humidity. It's a term used to describe the amount of water vapor that exists in a gaseous mixture of air and water vapor.

    The ideal humidity level for camera is between 40%RH to 50%RH.

    im using Digi Cabi DB-036 and have left my cabinet for 1 day already. yet the rh has only decreased by 5%! is there anything wrong with my settings? I've currently turned the dial to the 11 o clock position where the green light dims. Should i contact my dealer?

    Turn to the red marking, that should bring down the RH quite soon. Check the battery of the RH meter as well (not sure whether this type needs one). Open the door, locate the dehumidifier unit at the back, it has some opening on top and below. Use a finger to feel the metal element inside, it must feel cold. If it doesn't then the unit is faulty. Get warranty card and receipt and contact Digi Service Center (Tagore Lane).

    Start by setting it at the 2 o'clock position. Then let it stabilize. Then adjust, and let it stabilize.. until you get your desired setting.
