Access can control a single stage dehumidifier. The dehumidification is PID regulated to reduce the relative humidity in the room (or extract air) to the setpoint value. An analog output is used to control a dehumidifier. The output will increase on increasing room (or extract air) humidity. A digital output can also be used to start a dehumidifier.


note: this dehumidification can't be used in combination with humidification - sequence override should be used instead.
