Additional Specifications:
Humidistat Sensing Element: Long Nylon Ribbon
Starting current or draw: 1.62 AMPS  RLA (Running Load Amps). This in watts is 194.4 watts.

Running Amps: 1.5 Amps. This in watts is 150 watts Max. This means it will run at around 150 watts max.
Inverter recommendation: If you need to plug the unit into an inverter, we recommend buying an inverter of at least 300 watts since the inverter itself will draw some 30 watts or so. If you plan to connect a laptop, cell phone or medical device to your inverter, you might want to consider an inverter that uses a pure sine wave. Our dehumidifier is not as picky and so it will run on either a pure sine wave or a Modified sine wave inverter. The more watts the inverter is rated for the more appliances you will be able to connect to it. Therefore the more (i.e watts) the merrier.



Built to Industrial Standards From Quality Parts: Tecumseh Compressor, Honeywell Humidistat, Morrill Motors Fan/Fan Motor

Compressor
Brand: Tecumseh
Volts: 115V/60HZ/1PH 100V/50HZ/1PH
Refrigerant: 134A
LRA: 10.2
CSA and UR listed
Thermally Protected

Fan/Fan Motor
Brand: Morrill Motors
RPM: 1550
CSA AND UR LISTED

Humidistat: Automatic Switching Control to level you preset
Brand: Honeywell
Scale Range: 20% RH - 80% RH
Sensing Element: Long Nylon ribbon
Operating Temperature Range: 50F to 125F (10C to 52C)
Adjustments: Control Knob for setting %RH levels + On and OFF positions

The numbers on the control knob correspond to the %RH (Relative Humidity)

  50%RH recommended for most boat and rv applications
accuracy of these setting 5%RH

Accuracy of the  %RH settings can be achieved by synchronizing the unit with a good hygrometer.
Although not needed Additional %RH settings can be achieved with an accessory called a humidity controller.

The humidistat will restart the unit once humidity levels have increased 5%RH
UL listed and CSA listed

Application:
More effective for humidity control than air conditioning (20% to 80% humidity level selection)

More economical than air conditioning (150 watts at 115 volts AC) especially in an unoccupied boat or RV

Effective in applications of 1000 sq feet or less (150 cu. Ft. of air per minute)

Effective in applications where continuous draining is necessary (no bucket to empty)


Summer Application: Humidity Control in Boats and RVs and other suited applications during hot and humid conditions with the objective being to reduce mold and mildew growth.

Off Season Application: Boat and RV Storage  during hot and humid conditions with the objective being to reduce mold and mildew growth.
Mild Weather Application: Humidity Control in Boats and RVs during mild weather conditions with the objective being to reduce Condensation on cold surfaces.

Note: the dehumidifier, is not recommend for unattended operation in below 50F temperature. Our customers around this time (mild weather) are on liveaboards and motor homes, where the indoor temperature is set for personal comfort, so the temperature for them is within allowable usage limits.
How our customer report using their DH-10s:
Dockside Operation especially in un-occupied boats and RVs.

On a lift out of the water
Live-aboards and Motor Coach owners report using the unit while they are on-board.
Boat Owners who are afraid of leaving their central AC units on for extended periods while they are away from their boats.

Note: the DH-10 dehumidifier, is not recommend for unattended operation during severe weather conditions.
