    not sure if here correct place to ask,
    my dry cabinet DB-026N keeping dropping under 40% RH where it stay at 31% RH overnight ytd.
    so to adjust & increase it to 45~55% i should turn anti-clockwise?
    but somehow it still drop under 40% today.

    I will try turn the knot all the way anti-clockwise & open the door to let the RH reach 50% and let it monitor one more night but if still drop below 30% what else can i do?
    (i putting a digital hydrometer inside also)

    From my experiences.. the RH % will drop when Aircon (@18 degress) is on.

    You should stop worrying. It is completely irrelevant whether the RH drops to values below 40% or stays at 45%. Nobody ever said that the RH must be constant at 45%. Your manual will give you a recommended range, which includes already a safety margin.

    What is your purpose in opening the door?

    Hi cstoe, dun be too paranoid with the RH. Just monitor it for a few days without opening n closing the cabinet door. Then do a slight adjustment with the knob if your cabinet comes with an adjusting knob n observe again.
    The RH in my dry cab also fluctuates but as long as it is not fluctuating in a critical level, you shouldn't be alarmed.
    Even of you put in another hygrometer in it n it is not calibrated it is also no use coz it's gonna give you another reading n you be just as confused n paranoid as before.
    Go shoot more rather than worrying about the RH
    Take the shot!

    This is what happens when 1 gets another meter or few..
    Least u can expect is all to be at the same reading.. shoot more worry less..there are more things you should be worry more rather than your camera gear.
