Solar powered wireless Arduino based Geiger counter porject.

Hello, I have plans to build myself a solar powered wireless Geiger counter using a RH Electronics Arduino IDE Geiger counter connected via a serial connection through a logic level converter to a 3.3V ATmega328P-AU Pro MCU with an ESP8266 serial WiFi tranceiver to send the readings from the Geiger counter to radmon.org.I intend to …

Geiger–Müller counter that can work with Arduino or (almost) any evaluation board

The Geiger–Müller counter is a relatively simple tool to measure ionizing radiation. To increase sensitivity, construction presented here contains three (instead of one as usually) soviet STS-5 lamps. This is important for measurements of natural sources of (low) radiation like soil, rocks (an article about my trip with Geiger–Müller counter on Śnieżka mountain). Principle of …

Geiger counter triggered LED decorations using arduino

Bored of blinky lights that blink in response to time? Make them blink with space instead! This instructable shows a quick method for connecting LED tree decorations to a Geiger counter via arduino, so that the lights blink between different strings each time radiation is detected. It’s nicer to think of this as “cosmic rays” …
