MightyOhm Geiger Counter Kit (incl. Case)

  • BrandMightyOhm

Description

Have you ever wondered if the objects in your house are radioactive or not? Does the apple in your fridge give off radiation? Are the books on your shelves giving off gamma rays? You can easily find that out by building your Geiger counter!

Thanks to the serial logging function you can track exposure over time, and you can use the mute button to detect radiation without any noise. Detect beta and gamma radiation with your own portable Geiger counter!

Features

  • 100% Open Source Hardware!
  • Sensitive to beta and gamma radiation
  • LED and piezo speaker alert you to detected radioactivity.
  • Mute button for silent operation.
  • An ATtiny2313 microcontroller brain that is begging to be hacked!
  • Support for several common Geiger-Müller tubes: SI-3BG, SI-1G, and SBM-20. HV supply can be adjusted from ~300-600 V.
  • Headers for serial (9600 baud), in-circuit programming of the AVR microcontroller, and pulse output (to connect the Geiger counter to other stuff!)
  • Serial data logging! Counts per second (CPS), counts per minute (CPM), and equivalent dose are reported via the serial port once a second.

Included

  • Geiger counter kit incl. PCB and all parts
  • 1x SBM-20 Geiger-Müller tube
  • 1x Laser cut acrylic case

      One of the best GM tube kits available

      Easy to make, worked first time. Seems accurate enough when tested with my radiation sources.
      Battery powered, so it can be used as a portable device, unlike many other kits. It also has the satisfying Geiger counter `clicks` so you can hear the radiation level.
      USB communications via plug-in FTDI TTL-232R-3V3 cable, or via Arduino (etc) RX input.
      Digital pulse output can connect to Arduino (etc) input so you can write your own code to smooth and convert counts to Sieverts.
      One small point: You need a 1 giga-ohm resistor for accurate HT voltage measurement. This could have been supplied with the kit. But it works well even without adjustment.

      Ein Bausatz in tadelloser Qualität

      Ein Bausatz in tadelloser Qualität, der Zusammenbau ist gut beschrieben, das Gerät funktioniert sehr gut. Alle Unterlagen müssen von der Website des Herstellers heruntergeladen werden, Schaltplan und Platinenlayout können mit EAGLE weiterbearbeitet werden, fals man eigene Modifikationen macht.

      MightyOhm Geiger Counter

      Ich habe Details der Schaltung mit einem Messgeraet und dem Oszilloskop nachgemessen. 400V liegen wirklich an und es sind wirklich Impulse an dem Spannungsteiler zu sehen, die nur durch Entladungen und somit radioaktive Strahlung in der Roehre zu erklaeren sind. Ganz toll!

      Bin sehr zufrieden!

      Bausatz hat auf Anhieb funktioniert, sieht gut aus und macht Spass. Werde das ganze jetzt weiter aufrüsten...
