Geiger Counter Prototype

After one week preparing, we made a Geiger Counter prototype using J408γ. The red Led flashes when the power(9v battery) is on, which illustrates that it is receiving the radiation particles of the background environment. The detailed information will be submitted after the counter is fully tested.

Geiger Counter connected to Seeeduino

The count(CPM) we got from the prototype:

The first version of schematic and PCB files have been submitted  on the github here: https://github.com/Seeed-Studio/Geiger-Counter

Later we will add and edit more information on the garden here: http://garden.seeedstudio.com/index.php?title=Geiger_Counter

  1. Yes, the Twig version is under manufacturing. It could be connected to Arduino/Seeeduino through Twig Stem – base shield.


    snapper:

    There will also be a PCB, which can be directly mounted on a seeeduino / arduino?

  2. Looks great, can’t wait to see this available. How sensitive is this tube? I really want to be able to track background levels, more than those that only measure levels I will run from.

    @0xFFFF: as you can see, components looks like standard cheap stuff, so the price shouldn’t be high.
    But there is one huge problem: geiger tubes are sold out everywhere :-(

    Yes, the price should not be high. But the supplying of the tube could not be ensured.
