New Design Simple Radiation Detector DIY Kit

High voltage converter based on self-induction circuit, where square waves drives NPN transistor to produce high voltage spikes over 10mH inductor. After multiplication we can get 350V-450V anode voltage. As before the PCB include high impedance voltage divider for easy calibration.

The kit compatible with Arduino, i.e. it can be used for sending interrupts to MCU. Please download user manual for more technical details about the kit.

PCB allow installation of SBM-20, STS-5 or J305 Geiger tubes. Soldering process require moderate solder skills. 

The kit can be used as nuclear radiation detector or, if you connect it to Arduino, as a part of COSM monitoring station / dosimeter. We supply 2 simple arduino sketches for the beginners, you can modify it to your needs.
