analog cabinet setting guide-
1- set the dial at center. let the cabinet to stable for one day.
2- obtain the reading from the meter.
3- if reading is lower than ur desire range - reduce the power of the dry module ( turn the dial abit only).
4- if reading is higher than ur desire range - increase the power of the dry module ( turn the dial abit only).
5- repeat the process 1-4 until u happy the humidity level.

Note : need to be patient!! accuracy >+- 5 %
Note : pls note is normal the reading may drop futher after few days.
Advice : As the reading around 40 - 50%  consider ok already

Analog cabinet user
< 30% not ok
30 - 40 % - ok
35 - 45 % - ok
40 - 50 % - ok
45 - 55 % - ok
> 55% not ok
*
This is so true. I took days to get to the right %.
Patient.. Patient..

When i first turn on the Dry Cabinet only know that my house humidity around 70%!!!

@Hidden, u will need to try and error, the 1st time I got mine, I've set it to around C, the after 3hours +, I rechecked and set it to D-E area, and it stay @ 45% over a period of time.

If your RH% is still @ 70%, I recon u to try set around A, should be stronger, after 3-4hours rechecked and re-set ur meter. I noticed analogue dry box doesn't have constant RH%, so have to check from time to time.

What worry me most is the temperature, mine is around 35c+ sometimes will go up to 40c.

Ok. Mine did drop to 50+ now. I just messed it around.

To confirm.

The A B C D E

If mine is now 55, and I want to make it 45, I turn to AB or DE? I always have the impression that A will make it wetter (higher in RH) while E will make it dryer (lower in RH) am I correctly interpret it?

Higher RH value = wetter?

I thought it's the other way around, A the strongest heat drying and E being the lowest heat. Aipo isn't providing a good manual, rather it's useless anyway! rclxub.gif

Try set to CD 1st, wait for few hours or might just leave it at current position. I noticed, I've left my current meter around D-E, when it's raining, RH% will raise abit, and eventually lower down by period of time, not more than 3 hours I think. Just tweek around and see how. sweat.gif

Aipo 21L Analog,

how to maintain the level?

E.g. once i reach 45%, i open and change it back to C

then i realized it will go back up to around 50+

My room is 70+

I figure this is because i open the microwave and it change the humidity a bit, I realized AB is to make it wetter while DE is to make it dryer, so inorder to maintain at 45%

What do i do?

Do i, let it dry until around 35% then open and adjust to C, so it will stable around 40+?

Thanks
