Calibrating Humi-Care digital hygrometer
Hi guys, I need some help calibrating a specific model of hygrometer I recently bought from this website. I don't know if it ever came with documentation, but in my excitement to get to the good stuff (the sticks, not the equipment!) I may have thrown it out with the packaging.
Regardless, the thing is sitting in a ziploc bag undergoing the "salt test" for 75% humidity as I type. My question is more in line with this specific model rather than the process. I got the Humi-Care digital hygrometer to replace an older analog one.
I assume to calibrate it I merely have to turn the dial with the drop on it? Part of the problem is I see no change when I turn the dial to know if it's working. Further complicating things is the fact that it is so immediate in its readings it starts dropping continuously as soon as it comes out of the bag, complicating any potential adjustment. Now I'm currently stationed in Afghanistan, so it has a long way to drop! I worry that if I wait until it hits the bottom, somewhere in the 30s I think, and I try to adjust it there that it won't be as accurate as adjusting it closer to the 75% end of the scale.
Does anyone have any tips or experience in calibrating this particular model?
