Ruggard EDC Overview

Protect cameras, lenses, photographic and optical equipment, mobile electronics, and other valuables from excessive moisture, dirt, and dust with the Ruggard EDC-80L Electronic Dry Cabinet. The cabinet's fast-acting TE Cooling Wafer regulates the interior's relative humidity from 60 to 25% to help prevent fungus and corrosion that can damage delicate gear and other sensitive materials. Humidity adjustments take place over a 1- to 3-hour period.

The large, dimmable LCD displays ambient temperature (in Fahrenheit or Celsius), relative humidity, and other settings, and the glass door is gasket sealed. Interior LED lights make viewing and finding gear easier, and both the base and the adjustable steel shelf is padded to help guard against scratches.

The Electronic Dry Cabinet features nearly silent operation, without a fan or compressor to make noise. It is also dripless, eliminating the need for a messy water tray that requires draining. To prevent unwanted movement, the bottom of the cabinet has four feet, two of which are leveling feet for installing on uneven surfaces. The cabinet is powered by an included multi-voltage power supply.

Ruggard EDC Reviews

Hygrometer Not Reliable - The humidity percentage is wrong!

By SOHEIL
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2022-01-20

I have three of these cabinets and was happy with checking them and seeing the humidity was always low. Recently I realized one of the cabinets' hygrometer is showing 25% and the cabinet is actually doing nothing because I set it to 30% and until the humidity doesn't reach to 30% the cabinet doesn't start to work. It was strange because at the same time the other cabinet was showing 28% and the third one was 31%. They were showing different humidity levels however they were all in the same place. I have another hygrometer which I calibrated it and decided to test the hygrometers inside the cabinets. The result is very disappointing. One of the 30L cabinets is 15% off, the second one is 10% off and the 18L cabinet is 5% off. And they were all showing it lower than what it is actually! (see the pictures) I'm really disappointed by this; I've been using the cabinets for three years and had set them to 30% but what they were actually getting was 45% , 40% and 35% during this time. Beware if you buy one, you need to calibrate a hygrometer and test the cabinet's hygrometer and set the cabinet setting based on the result of your test. As you see in the pictures I lowered the setting of my three cabinets to 20% , 25% and 28% so they can keep the actual humidity around 32%-35%.

The Ruggard 120L is just the right size for my collection of four Sony bodies and too many lenses. It would have been nice to have more than one light strip. Other than that, no complaints!

Bigger than expected

I bought this on sale for the price of a smaller one. It will even fit my daily gear bag inside and still have room for more

Fills Up Fast

This is both well made and carefully packed for shipping. The gauge of the metal both for the case and the single supplied shelf is quite heavy. Aside from inserting the shelf and the two foam liners, there's no assembly required. I figured this size was more than I needed but it filled up quickly with my stock on hand to the point that if I purchase more, and I will, I'll need another cabinet. I recommend carefully considering the dimensions too. I have no very long lenses but used to and some of them would not have fit. I think this type of cabinet is analogous to lenses - you can't have too many and in cabinets - you can't have too large. I've had this now a few weeks. So far it's been just what I had hoped: silent running and despite a few days of high humidity, it maintains its promised 40 or lower.

Fast and professional

Good Quality - Lots of Space

By Robert

This is a great dry cabinet for the price! Good construction, simple set-up, super quiet, and holds a lot of gear. B&H delivery was quick even over the holidays, just as they promised! When reviewing the various sizes these cabinets come in, I thought that 80L might be too small. I was wrong! I'm currently storing two full frame Nikon bodies with attached L brackets plus six lenses and I still have room for lots more gear.

Dry Cabinet - Ruggard 125L

Looked at many of the competitors products. This size was the right fit for the amount of equipment I wanted to protect. The B&H price was the most competitive in this size range. Ordering was quick and simple. The cabinet was in stock and shipped same day as I ordered. Came with FREE expedited shipping so came in 2 days. The cabinet was very we packaged and easy to setup. I've had it for a few weeks now and it works great.

Is a dry cabinet like this appropriate for preventing condensation forming on gear that I've used for hours in below freezing weather - like chasing auroras or other astrophotography in subfreezing temperatures for hours?
Asked by: Dan
I live in a subtropical climate where the humidity levels can reach 90%. When coming in from a hot humid outdoor climate to a cooler indoor climate, I have noticed condensation on my lenses. I have set the RH to 38% in my Ruggard cabinet. At this low RH my camera lenses appear to dry out, I have not have had any mould on my lenses since using the Ruggard Cabinet. The other advantage I have had is that the dehumidifying process does not require any moving parts or fans, so it is absolutely quiet. It fits into a cabinet with about 10mm (0.39&quot;) gap all-round without any deterioration in performance.

Where does the moisture go? Is there something attached to the unit that collects the moisture?

The Ruggard Dry Cabinet contains a cooling wafer which removes moisture from the air by condensing it out. There are no moisture collection units attached to the Dry Cabinet.

Looking at the User Manual PDF, accessible on the Overview page, it shows an adjustable &quot;sliding&quot; shelf in one view. Not sure which models feature that, but does the 80L cabinet have that? Can &quot;sliding&quot; shelves be ordered separately from Ruggard for the 880L cabinet?

I had this 80L cabinet for a few years now. The one shelf is adjustable but not a sliding shelf. Unless the newer model added the sliding feature, that I don&rsquo;t know.

You will probably need to replace the lock core or the entire lock mechanism. If you are handy with such things, this is one of many sites that sells the parts you need https://www.cubiclekeys.com/
