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
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.

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
The humidistat will restart the unit
once humidity levels have increased 5%RH

Note: the dehumidifier, is not recommend for unattended operation
in below 50°F 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
