Dear Mark,

thanks for your suggestions, but they all seem to be designed for
roughly the same specs, especially non-condensing humidity.

Maybe I am stuck in my ivory tower and looking at it wrongly, but the
specs below don't look _that_ promising to me.

To make sure: Do you have operational experience with those machines?
If yes, in what region?
