With SIPLUS extreme, what is the meaning of "100% relative humidity (RH)" and "Bedewing permissible"?

6AG1 SIPLUS extreme: 100% relative humidity (RH) and bedewing are permissible

Devices of the SIPLUS extreme family have a coating (conformal coating) which permits 100% RH and bedewing.

As far as possible, avoid commissioning electronic devices in a "bedewed" state, because in a few exceptional cases this might lead to temporary error messages/behavior. Here you have to let the device acclimatize (dry) at room temperature if you change the location.

High temperatures combined with natural fluctuations in temperature (day/night), solar radiation during continuous operation or bedewing during storage and transport are permissible and do not lead to faulty behavior or damage.
