MKMO3 Geiger Counter
Why spend $400+ on a Geiger Counter when you can build your own for a fraction of the price? This Geiger counter kit was featured in MAKE: Volume 29 and is able to detect α(alpha), β(beta) and γ(gamma) radiation using the included tube. The simple to build kit can be soldered together in a few hours and is designed to be reliable and long lasting. When complete, the Geiger counter will output a click and flash an LED each time a radioactive particle is detected. The unit has two digital TTL logic pulse outputs that allow connection to a number of accessory instruments such as a a data logger, Digital Meter, or RS-232 adapter for connection to a PC (none included.)
Please Note: The kit includes the PCB, electronics, and tube only. No enclosure is included. We do not currently have an enclosure that fits this kit and you will have to build your own if you want one.
9V battery required (not included.)
***** WARNING ***** This Geiger Counter kit is for EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. Donít even think about using it to monitor radiation in life-threatening situations, or in any environment where you may expose yourself to dangerous levels of radiation. Donít rely on the collected data to be an accurate measure of radiation exposure! Be safe!
