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

Thanks so much for your knowledge sharing - I just bought a D026 on Sunday and only now I got my hygrometer to stabilise 40-45% RH. Really appreciate having read your post - patience really is key!
Can I ask if it is advisable to separate everything - lens from body, filter from lens, cap as well? Is there any difference if just leaving everything assembled when placed inside the drybox?
