- Arduino Compatible Board
- Geiger Tube is included !
- Could be connected to PC directly to do realtime moniting.
we also provide free matlab source code to do moniting and analysis.
This Nuclear Radiation DIY Detector Kit. Arduino compatible kit. Can drive M4011,STS-5, SBM20 or
J305 Geiger tubes on the PCB. Has voltage compatibility with all popular GM Tubes that requires anode voltage 350-500V.
The kit has visual and sound indication of the radiation and can be used as detector of dangerous radiation levels or radioactive materials in your environment. Excellent cheap solution for Arduino COSM monitoring station.
Good kit for MCU software developers that just want to drive Geiger Tube for their own software. Include PDF manual with instruction and Arduino code examples. The kit is compatible with “Radiation Logger” via Arduino SPI.

Arduino MCU Communication:
The PCB has 3 pins for communication with MCU: INT, GND, 5V. You can power up the kit from 5V Arduino board directly. Or,
if you use batteries for Geiger Kit, you have to connect only 2 pins to Arduino: INT and GND.
There is many different application you can use this kit, especially if you are software developer. The board send 500 uS
high-low-high interrupts to Arduino. We offer 2 simple sketches as an example, please modify it for your needs. We do not provide technical support for Arduino code.
You can learn more at home page of arduino.
Actually its possible to use this kit with any other microcontroller, not only Arduino boards because it has the same principles, but if you are beginner it will be easy to start with Arduino.
