PKE Meter Geiger Counter

https://youtu.be/VS8lQ5SYb7U I have been wanting to build a Geiger counter for a long time to complement my Peltier Cooled Cloud Chamber. There is (hopefully) not really much useful purpose in owning a Geiger counter but I just love the old Russian tubes and thought it would be great fun to build one. Then I came across the neat instructable by How-ToDo and thought about rebuilding it with so ...

Arduino UV Meter using the UV30A Ultraviolet Sensor

Introduction Ultraviolet rays, also known as UV for short are rays emitted by sun. Due to the depletion of the ozone layer, these rays tend to get to extreme levels that could lead to sunburns etc for those under it, that’s why daily and hourly forecast of the UV index is always available to help people keep track and stay safe. For monitoring purposes, why not own a personal UV meter? Today, we will build ...

Arduino Milliohm Meter

This is an accurate milliohm meter with a maximum resolution of 0.1mOhm. The design is very simple, the whole assembly can be built in a couple of hours once all the parts are gathered. It is based on a precision current sink and a high-resolution ADC controlled by an Arduino Nano V3. It uses a Kelvin connection with the resistor under test to exclude the resistance of test leads from the measurements. It c ...

ICOSAHEDRON GLOWS WITH THE BEST OF THEM

Glowables come in all shapes and sizes, and we’re always keen to see the multitude of different ways hackers find to put great masses of LEDs to good use. [cabrera.101] wanted to get in on the action, and whipped up a rather flashy icosahedron. The build uses high-density 144-LED-per-meter strips for the edges, with 60-LED-per-meter strips used for the tubes that connect to the stainless steel ball in ...

How to Make an Arduino Capacitance Meter

With all the different ways capacitors are labeled, figuring out the values of your capacitors can be challenging. Especially if you don’t have a digital multi-meter to test them. In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to build three different capacitance meters using an Arduino and a couple resistors. After finishing this project, you’ll be able to measure all of your capacitors and label them for future refe ...

SIMPLE ULTRASOUND MACHINE SHOWS THE SKELETON LURKING INSIDE US ALL

That first glimpse of a child in the womb as a black and white image on a screen is a thrilling moment for any parent-to-be, made possible by several hundred thousand dollars worth of precision medical instrumentation. This ultrasound machine cobbled together from eBay parts and modules is not that machine by a long shot, but it’s still a very cool project that actually gives a peek inside the skin. The ult ...

DC Power Meter for 0-55V 20A Work Bench Power Supply

This project describes how to make a low-cost DC power meter that can be used for displaying Voltage, current, power and the running time of operation. This is useful and can be used as the display for your bench power supply too. This can be used in the display section of a 0-55 v battery charger, so the time elapsed gives you the actual time of charging the battery. The measurable voltage range of this ci ...
