Veselin Georgiev created this custom Geiger counter based on the MightyOhm Geiger Counter kit. Veselin’s version, called the LVA Geiger Counter, includes several changes:
- A 7-segment display with brightness control shows the measured radiation level in uSv/hr or total counts since startup.
- ATmega88 instead of ATtiny2313 to allow more space for firmware extensions.
- Battery level monitoring with alarm.
- Phono jack pulse output for connection to monitoring software.
Kits are available from robotev (shipping to Bulgaria and Balkan-area only).
Micro Center is selling off their remaining stock of Geiger Counter kits at a substantial discount. Looks like there are still a few in stock at select locations.
Over at The Sync Channel Blog, Dan Watson wrote this awesome tutorial that shows you how to add an OLED display and Wi-Fi interface to the MightyOhm Geiger Counter kit.
Nice work, Dan!
Light snow in Seattle and this message from Aperture Science remind us that the holidays are here!
I’m happy to announce that I have a limited quantity of Geiger Counter kits in stock – just in time for the holidays. You can order one here.
(PS. Rescue Shields are in stock too.)
I’m expecting to have more within 2 weeks.
They are still in stock at multiple distributors. Please continue to support them with your business.
You can also buy my kits at the Ada’s Technical Books retail location in Seattle!
