Hi there I just bought myself a dry cabinet DB-036 and I was quite confused on the humidity meter...the instruction manual states the same here: http://www.digihub.com.sg/userguide.htm

But the humidity gauge is like this (I took a picture lol)



Mine reads 67% EH and 28 degrees temp now. The instruction manual I received seems its for the AD version where there are A,B,C indicators but I dont see it here. Where do I go from here? All I see is the colors Red,Blue,Green. I searched google and some threads in CS..what I read is red is more dry and green is less dry and some said set it to 9' clock position to get a pretty accurate 45% RH while at this position, the green light fades away. Want to make sure is this true? or is it true for the AD versions only? And how long would be required to achieve a 45% RH from almost 70% RH? Thanks guys!

Test first...

turn it all the way to the right and wait for about an hour... does the humidity drop?? Or rise?

Turn to the correct direction and adjust accordingly until the humidity is correct.

Also note that you'd need to load the cabinet to get a proper reading in the end as an empty cabinet will be different from a loaded one.

the cabinet needs to be 'season' first. makes no sense of setting the RH for 1 whole day and then placing in your equipment later. the best way? put in all your stuff, set it to the red zone and moniter it. after the RH is settle down and then turn it to the 12oclock position.

I have about 10 o'clock and it's 50% pretty spot on. Continue as you do, you'll get the right settings quite soon. Also keep in mind that room conditions will affect the RH reading. Aircon will make the RH drop faster in the cabinet and in result you might need different settings from other people without aircon in use.

That's outside humidity according my room hygrometer. Yep, this reading is far to high. Try setting to about 8 o'clock and watch. If no change then your dehumidifier unit is not working.

maybe really spoil le.. you need to pull the humdity down first ba.. set it all the way in the red zone such that the green bulb is light up birghtly... then monitor after one night it should go down to around 30 - 40% range.
put your equipments in and set it to around 12 o clock again.

you cannot power off the cabin as if you do so humidity will built up again... (my mum power off one weekend i was not home and it shot up to like 60 plus 70... arghz) .. usually i will take what i want and close the door quickly..
