What mean the blinking blue drops? Does it stop blinking?
Asked by: luis
The blinking blue water droplet means that the unit is attempting reach the target humidity. For example if you set it at 40 rH then the LCD will have the flashing droplet until it reached the set humidity, and will turn off once it is reached.

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.

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.
