calibration

  1. General Cigar Discussion
    I just ran the salt test in a well-sealed jar with my Caliber IV digital. After 18 hours, the reading was a steady 77%. According to the Caliber IV's instructions, however, the Boveda calibration kit is the only proper test method; they insist that the salt method is unreliable (I don't know...

    After failing multiple times with the salt test, I am trying this. They do not sell humidipack at my shop, however they have the boveda packs. So, my digital hygroset hygrometer has no calibrate button, instead an adjustable knob. What I am doing is throwing 2 69% bags in a tupperwear, remove...

    I have 2 Hydra LG electronic humidifiers that I recently bought. I am having an issue with calibrating them both. I have a Xikar electronic hygrometer which I just calibrated to 75% using both the salt test method and Boveda, so I know that it is calibrated to 75%. When using the Xikar...

    I am trying to calibrate a new digital hygrometer I just bought for a fridgeador I am building. The wireless sensor is currently sitting in a sealed plastic bag with a saltwater mixture that looks exactly like the descriptions led me to believe it should. It's been in there for about 6 hours and...

    So, I recently got two new digital Hygrometers...a hygro set and a hygro set 2. I also got the Boveda one step calibration kit. The instructions on the kit say leave it in for 24-36 hours...It's been almost 48 hours (because I wasn't around at the 24-36 hour mark) and my RH is only showing at...

    In an hour or so i'm going to be picking one of these up. I already have a Boveda calibration kit. So my question for you guys is.. Do i need to calbrate both the Sensor and the Base unit? ..or only the sensor? I did several searches just didnt come up with the answer. I realize that not...

    Hey all, Im a total noobie to the cigar world and this is my first post but Ive been lurking for a few weeks gaining lots of info. Needless to say Im loving this forum. My question is can I calibrate my digi hygrometer by sealing it in a ziplock with a Boveda 72? My local cigar shop didnt have...

    Hello All- I have a Hydra SM humidifier. In order to get my humidor to 68%, I have to run my Hydra on a setting at 74%. There is a calibration knob, but it was shipped with it being at the lowest setting. So, I can only adjust the on board hydro up and NOT down. I go by what my calibrated...

    I did the salt test to calibrate my hygros., but I was wondering if I could use a boveda 65% pack to calibrate the hygros. I want to do this so I know it is accurate at 65%, not 75%. Also at what temp. would this effect the accuracy, and would I do the test the same as the salt test?

    Hello all- I salt tested and calibrated a couple of my hygro's a few weeks back. I actually did it two different times a few days apart with two separate salt samples and I was right on at 75%. Yesterday, my brother gave me a Boveda Calibration packet. I figured I'd see how close I was...

    So this is my first humidor and hygrometer. The first salt test I did I got 73% so I adjusted the knob up to 75% and threw it in my humidor. The built in digital hydrometer in my humidor read 66-67 and the one I just calibrated read 62-63. Now for some reason I wanted to do the test again. This...

    I just got my hygrometer today and put in it a ziploc with a cap full of salt & water. I'm sitting here watching the rh & temp jumping all over the place. Is that normal? Will is stabalize at some point? Its about 75deg in my house but this thing will show 35deg one min then 98deg a min...

    Anyone have any experience with these? I bought one the other day because I wanted to calibrate both of my Xikar digital hygrometers. So I popped one in there and let it sit for 24 hours and put it in one of my humi's, then popped the other one in the bag and let it sit for 24 hours and I put...

    I have the Boveda Calibration kit. I have 2 hygrometers in there. One analog and the second square digital. Both read 72%-73% RH after 24 hours. Should i recalibrate them to 75?
  19. Cigar Accessory Questions
    So i have read a bunch of the topics about calibration. Some good info for sure. My question is can you leave it for to long.?. lol. I started to calibrate last Thursday i believe.. Ended up leaving town, and forgot all about it when i left. I am going home tomorrow. Anyone have any thoughts...

    Bah, longest title for a thread I've ever made. I bought some digital hygrometers because I didn't believe in the reliability of the analog hygrometers. I bought some $20 ones online assuming they would be good (before I got involved in puff). Well I've been assuming they were working as well...
