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

First impressions are good

The build quality is good for the price range. The operation is VERY quite, I've seen several reviews about the humidity not being displayed accurately but I can't comment to that as I have no other way of measuring it at the moment. I will say that it is slow, you don't want to be opening this cabinet every day, it is more for storage. It took about a whole 24 hours to go from 48% to 31% relative humidity. Might get faster results if you put a drying agent in there to help boost it, idk, for my purposes this is great and I don't mind the delay due to the fact that it's practically silent. 10/10 would buy again.

Good quality and fits everything

This was a good size for me. Fits my camera body and multiple lenses.

If you live where humidity is high; buy this cabinet

Currently I have 10 bodies (mostly film bodies and 3 Sony's) and more than 14 lenses packed into this cabinet. The typical humidity in my home is 65% and during summer it will get to 75%+. This cabinet keeps the humidity at 51%. The interior light is weak, but useful. I wish they put LED lights on both sides of the interior. Cabinet fits conveniently on the end of my work station.

So I've already got two 80L s full of camera gear but wanted the 18L for my VA meds and fists full a supplements. The 18L holds all my stock very snugly and I suspect quite dryly with enough grab room for my spindly fingers to snatch. Takes quite awhile to reach 40% target after short intrusions but appears to be working as well as the 80-s. Here in NW Illinois things get muggy occasionally so the price for dryness insurance is way cheaper than the otherwise consequences. Don't be penny wise and dollar stupid; the dry cabinets are mega times cheaper than takin' chances.

Working so far

Set up my cabinet past week and it is keeping relative humidity between 40-47. Seems to be working as expected and fit all of my equipment.

Finally!

I had been wanting to purchase one of the Ruggard dry cabinets for over a year and was able to get one on sale at B&H. The 125L is perfect for my needs. Unit works flawlessly and now I have a stable environment for my gear. A must have to protect your investment.

Amazing Value

I bought this because I keep my photography equipment in our basement and I wanted something that would keep my lenses safe from mold. This cabinet is awesome. It is large, well lit (it acts as a nightlight for the basement) and it is an amazing display case. For the price, this is an amazing value. It also keeps the dust off my cameras and lenses; an added bonus.

Fits it all

I have all my stills equipment along with a pocket 6k pro. Doesn't fit my motion kit, but I didn't expect it to. I feel a lot better knowing my gear is dry during the humid summers

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.

You probably don't need to go that far. I use it in my studio as is.

Where does the moisture go? Is there something attached to the unit that collects the moisture?
Asked by: Diane
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?
Asked by: David
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.

Asked by: Hussain
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/
