Pocket Geiger Counter – Type 5


Pocket Geiger Counter – Type 5



The PocketGeiger-Type5 from Radiation Watch is a highly sensitive radiation sensor designed for the embedded systems market. Capable of detecting Gamma and Beta radiation, it has a simple pulsed output that can be used with any microcontroller. The Pocket Geiger has an onboard DC boost circuit, so the board can be supplied with a friendly 3V to 9V. Using only 30mW (10mA @ 3V), it is very low power. Radiation Watch has a handful of documents and example Arduino code to get you up and running. They have also written a Windows example program written in C# (source included!) to output graphs to a computer using an Arduino as the reader. Additionally, the counter comes with an optional enclosure and 3.5mm cable that allow you to connect the counter to some mobile phones (may not be compatible with phones sold in the EU).

We do not plan to regularly carry SparkX products so get them while they’re hot!

Experimental Product: SparkX products are rapidly produced to bring you the most cutting edge technology as it becomes available. These products are tested but come with no guarantees.
