Moisture is a main factor is corrosion processes and electronic failures. By lowering the humidity, the corrosion speed can be reduced and in some cases corrosion can even be halted. Electronic equipment will show less electronic failures in a dry environment. Also, a low humidity will prevent fungus, mould and condensation.
In the military environment dehumidifiers can be used on active as well as stored equipment.
