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-50L Electronic Dry Cabinet. The cabinet's fast-acting TE Cooling Wafer regulates the interior's relative humidity from 60-35% 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 LCD screen displays ambient temperature (in Fahrenheit or Celsius) and the relative humidity. The cabinet is gasket-sealed to maintain humidity levels.

The door features a keyed lock that keeps the cabinet contents safe and secure, and prevents unauthorized access to your equipment. The lock comes complete with two keys.

The Electronic Dry Cabinet has no fan or compressor to make noise, so it provides silent operation. It is also dripless, eliminating the need for a messy water tray that requires draining. The cabinet is powered by an included multi-voltage power supply.

  • Interior LED lights make viewing and finding gear easier.
  • Cabinet base and shelves are padded to protect contents.
  • User-selectable Fahrenheit or Celsius display.
  • Four feet, two leveling, prevent unwanted movement on uneven surfaces.

Is there a better solution? General Comment - ...

Is there a better solution? General Comment - perhaps a better solution... I believe that consistent humidity and temperature levels are important, so here&rsquo;s my suggestion: use a good dehumidifier(s) in your home (Eg, I use a newer model GE that is energy star rated), which does a great job of keeping the ambient humidity around 38%. This has lots of benefits, including reducing the strain of an HVAC system and keeping the system and duct work relatively moisture free. Then buy a good Gun Safe (AMSEC is a good brand, but there are many) with a dial lock (avoid electronic locks which can fail...). A good safe will have a power outlet inside which you can connect a dehumidifying rod to and keep a humidity gauge inside. A fire rated safe is also recommended; minimum of 60 minutes. Store all your most important valuables, including video gear, wills, passwords book, etc inside and sleep well at night. Gun safes are affordable and come in lots of sizes. You&rsquo;ll want to pay a reputable firm to deliver and install the safe. I&rsquo;ve also read that when taking video gear outside, if there&rsquo;s a big difference in temperature/humidity, that placing the gear in a sealed bag to allow the gear to come to a matching temperature sans condensation is recommended. I&rsquo;d love to read anyone&rsquo;s thoughts or experiences along these lines...always looking for best practices. Cheers. Chad K.
Asked by: Chad
While the solutions you list above may also work, unfortunately, we do not offer any of the other solutions, and the Ruggard Electronic Dry Cabinet (50L) would be an option we carry that would be compatible and would maintain the temperature/humidity control to the equipment inside the unit. It is true that moving from indoors to outdoors when there is a large difference in temperature/humidity can cause condensation to form on your equipment, and keeping the item in a sealed plastic bag while the inside/outside temperatures equalize would reduce the condensation occurrence on your equipment.

Can this run on 12 volt DC? If so, do you think I could keep this on a 38 foot sailboat without draining my batteries?
Asked by: Fisher
No Sir, Unit will not run on 12vdc, supplied 120vac transformer output is 5vdc at 2000mA. I run my units remote with this solar generator (Jackery Portable Power Station Explorer 24 Solar Generator) and a set of these solar panels (Jackery Solar Saga 60W Solar Panel for Explorer) When using that set up I run two (50L) cabinets with no worries

Does this need to constantly be plugged in and stay on 24/7? Or can I unplug it and leave it off on days when it's cooler with less humidity?
Asked by: Manny
It makes no sound an draws very little power so it seems like pointless extra work to turn it on and off. Set the humidity to a reasonable level and it will only work when needed. I'm very happy with this product.

I have two sony mirrorless, 1 bmd p4k, 1 sony fs700, about 67aspc and mft lenses, 8 batteries and chargers. Could it fit in this model?
Asked by: ry
Without actually getting the equipment and putting it in the cabinet there is not a way to be positive if it will fit all of your specific equipment. I do feel it is too much equipment for it. Best is to on the floor tape out the interior size of 11.3 x 11.4 rectangle. And then take equipment and place it in the taped area and see what fits. There are two shelves so you have three landings. And make note of the height of your equipment as the total interior height of the cabinet is 20.9&quot;.

Is there a temperature control? If so, what is the temperature range?

The cabinet does not control temperature, it controls humidity only. There is a thermometer for reference only.
