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

Yes, the Twig version is under manufacturing. It could be connected to Arduino/Seeeduino through Twig Stem – base shield.
There will also be a PCB, which can be directly mounted on a seeeduino / arduino?
Greetings from Germany
There is no formal datasheet for the geiger tubes, and even they are in chinese.
could you please upload the datasheet of the geiger tubes?
It would be cool to use nixies as display for the counter 🙂
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.
Yes, the price should not be high. But the supplying of the tube could not be ensured.
Loved it, cant wait to buy one! What will the price range be on this?
Will there be display and communication in the Geiger counter?
