This is one of the lines in the info in clinical settings, is this the software version?
The heater plate gets very warm to the touch.
I have it set "Manual" at 6, I like the humidity. Climateline set to 86 deg to fend off rain-out. Took it off of "Auto" setting because it wouldn't warm up as much even if set at 6 because it is a little too conservative in it's rain out prevention. When set on "Auto" in the clinical menu it still lets you set humidity 1 through 6, but I think it backs off the heat on the plate to prevent rain-out if the room is chilly. That's why they say no rain out if set to Auto. At least that's my take on things.
Wow. Then the Autoset I just got is at least two years old. Works great, though!

I don't know, but I would imagine that older software would still allow higher plate temps to achieve higher humidity consistently. If it starts out warm/hot, but craps out by morning it seems there must be a mechanical problem somewhere. Thermostat maybe? Safety shut-off?
Probably not an option to try your H5i on different machine or try your machine with different H5i in order to isolate the problem...hopefully someone else here has a good suggestion.
last increased to 5.5 and seem to be working fine and hot plate was quite warm in the morning
the climate control is brilliant for rainout but I need to breathe warm air all night (cold air seem to block nose and causes congestion)
I'm going to cut a piece from an old flannelette bed sheet to make a cover for the slimline hose
