Protect your lenses, photographic and optical equipment, mobile electronics, and other valuable accessories from excessive moisture, dirt, and dust with the Ruggard 30L Electronic Dry Cabinet. The cabinet's fast-acting TE Cooling Wafer regulates the interior's relative humidity from 35-60% to help prevent fungus and corrosion that can damage your gear. Humidity adjustments take place over a 1- to 3-hour period.

Fully-featured, the cabinet has a lockable, rubber-sealed glass door, with two keys, and a front plastic handle. A large, dimmable LCD displays ambient temperature (in Fahrenheit or Celsius), relative humidity, and other settings. Interior LED lights make viewing and finding gear easier. Both the base and the adjustable plastic shelf are padded to help guard against scratches, and the shelf's padding is contoured to accommodate lenses.

The Electronic Dry Cabinet is powered by an included multi-voltage power supply. In addition to being near silent, without a fan or compressor to make noise, the unit is also dripless, eliminating the need for a water tray. To prevent unwanted movement, the bottom of the cabinet has four rubber feet.

    Electronic Dry Cabinet (30L) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product This is an excellent product with plenty of room to store my mirrorless Fujifilm X-T2 body w/battery grip and 5 lenses (35mm f1.4, 35mm f2, 18-55mm f2.8-4, 16mm f1.4, 50mm f2). This unit is roomier than I expected. I could easily store 3 to 4 more lenses even if they were fairly large, although I'm talking about APS-C mirrorless lenses. Full frame users might want to consider a higher volume model. The unit seems to be well built, runs silently, and can maintain a relative humidity as low as 25%. A modest internal LED light is also provided.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits more than I thought I've had the 30L dry cabinet for a month. The upper (removable) tray has 3 rows for long lenses (such as telephoto) - you can easily fit 2-3 shorter zooms or primes in one row. I'm amazed I could fit a lot in it: On the bottom shelf I have 2 DSLRs, 1 wide angle zoom, several filters and a small binoculars. On the upper shelf, i have a long 80-200mm telephoto, and 4 mid-sized zooms (mix of Nikkor DX and FX lenses). I set humidity at 37% here in northern Cal. Low humidity is maintained by the wafer, which keeps the internal temp about 3 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than outside, And the cooling wafer runs very quietly (I don't hear it from more than 3 ft away). So far, I'm happy with my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great solution When I purchased this my only concern was the size. Once received it is small enough to fit on a shelf yet large enough to fit two full body Canons, 5 Canon lenses (50mm 1.2, 24-125, 18-24, 70-200 1.8 and another). Plenty of room and still has room for a small APS style camera. Great buy worth every penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Leica M Not having seen one in person, I couldn’t decide if the 30L would suffice or if I should just get the 80L to be safe. I took a shot with the 30L and is perfect for my kit which includes a couple M’s, 3 lenses and a few small doodads - with room to spare. Take into account your camera strap will eat up some room behind the camera (unless you want to go through the hassle of removing prior to storing). The 80L would be nice for dSLR’s, giant zooms, hard drives, etc., but for an M system the 30L is more than enough. With spring showers and warmer weather, my hygrometer clocked in 95% humidity today . But inside this box was a steady, reliable 40%. Why pay thousands for gear only to cheap out with silica packs and plastic bins? For $150 shipped (less than the cost of one ND filter) and peace of mind, it’s a no-brainer!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but efficient, well-designed dry cabinet I purchased 2 of these about one month ago. I had considered ordering either one 80L dry cabinet, or two of these 30L cabinets, but decided that the latter would work better for me due to the smaller cabinets being more flexible in placement, and the upper tray being contoured to hold lenses on their sides would make more efficient use of the smaller total volume of the two cabinets (60L vs 80L). They arrived in perfect condition, having been packed very well by the manufacturer. I found that I was right about choosing the smaller cabinets; they hold a surprising amount of equipment for their small size, but I can place them on shelves where the larger cabinet would have never fit. Years ago I had bought a similar type of cabinet when I lived in Tokyo, Japan, but it had a fixed humidity regulation setpoint, whereas these Ruggard cabinets have adjustable humidity setpoints, but work on the similar principal of very gently heating the air in the cabinet, which rapidly decreases the % humidity in the cabinet. The instructions are simple and clear; I’m not sure how low the humidity can actually be regulated to, but I keep mine set on 37%, and the electronic regulator maintains the humidity between 37% and 39% (the heater turns on when the humidity rises 2% above the setpoint). There is also a little strip LED light located in the front right corner of the cabinet. Although it does not spread light evenly throughout the entire cabinet, it is helpful in a darkened room to help see the equipment when sorting through it. I like these two cabinets so much that I have ordered a 3rd one, having decided that at these prices and compact size I might as well store all of my cameras and optics in these.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The lock is useless I bought two of these cabinets to place side by side. Overall, they function well and keeps the humidity to around 41%. One thing that was rather dissapointing is that the lock is useless. When you twist the handle, it will rotate the lock barrel and so you can always unlock it this way. There is no security with the lock. I decide to keep them since I don't care about the locking them up. However, it would be nice if this actually functions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Initial Impressions: Very solid product I have the 30L version of the Ruggard's Dry Cabinet, and I've been using it for couple of days now (had it for about a month, but was too lazy to get it out of the box LOL). The cabinet was packaged fairly well. Some dust on the outside, but I was glad that the inside of the cabinet was virtually devoid of any visible dust. In addition to the humidity control, keeping my equipment off dust from storage was my primary purpose for this cabinet, so glad it came fairly clean on the inside. When I first turned on the cabinet, the rel. humidity read somewhere in the mid 70s %, and it took about 6 hours to get it down to 45% (the setpoint can be adjusted). The 30L volume may seem small on paper, but as a mirrorless shooter, I think there's more than enough room (yeah sure, if it were little bigger, it may be easier to place things in the cabinet because I have bigger than average hands). I have Leica MP w/ 35mm Summicron, Leica M6 TTL w/ 50mm Summicron, Olympus 35 RC, Fujifilm X-T2, and four Fujifilm XF lenses (16/1.4, 35/2, 56/1.2, and 90/2) all stored in the cabinet. So far, I'm really digging its design (small form factor is very nice, and an elegant way of storing my stuff protected from most dust) and performance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST Mirrorless/DSLR Dry Cabinet for ME! This Dry Cabinet is AWESOME!!! If you are in a humid environment then this is a must have. If you just want to keep your gear away from dust then this is a must have. It has a dripless design and despite seeming small, this can hold a bit more than you may think. If you absolutely need more space and have a ton of gear they also offer an 80L as well. A simple yet effective design at a great price. To put this one in perspective on the size, its comparable to a small size college dorm fridge that you can put on top of a desk etc. without getting in the way too much. The 80L seems a bit larger and you may need to put that on the floor or on a desk/table that has a bit more open space. One last thing, these are also good for other items besides camera gear that they go over in the manual. Its can be used for storing Flour, Electronics, Lenses, Film to even Seeds. Hope that helps!

    what temp should i keep it at?
    Asked by: Gabe
    You cannot control the temperature inside the Ruggard Electronic Dry Cabinet (30L), B&amp;H # RUEDC30L. The unit simply allows the unit to display the current temperature in either Fahrenheit or Celcius, but you cannot control the temperature. The instruction manual comes with a guide for recommended ranges of humidity depending on the type of items you plan to store inside the cabinet. While you cannot control temperature, you can control the cabinet's humidity level.

    Would a Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary lens fit?
    Asked by: Matthew
    Hello. Not sure, maybe at the bottom diagonally. I have a Sony 70-200 F4 and it fits, but that lens is considerably smaller than the Sigma 150-600. I would recommend a bigger cabinet.
