Wikipedia: Temperature
Check your manual, there is a chapter about storage conditions. The temperature is just an additional information because humidity is given as Relative Humidity (RH) which is depending on the temperature. So the value of RH says nothing without the respective temperature at the point of measuring.

As mentioned many many times: look into your manual. There is a chapter for "storage conditions". Secondly, the manuals for all dry cabinets have recommendations, too. Also, it helps to read previously given answers here in the very same thread. The storage conditions are not depending on any model or brand.
