The Geiger Müller sensor is used to monitor alpha, beta, and gamma radiation. The sensor consists of the Geiger Müller adapter, a Geiger Müller counter and a steel rod for clamping into a suitable holding device.
The Geiger Müller counter is a GM tube with built-in integral high tension power supply. It has a yellow LED power indicator and audible bleep for each radioactive pulse that is recorded.
The sensor becomes active and starts to count as soon as it receives power from the data logger. A button press will reset an open count to zero.
The SmartQ GM Sensor can be used to investigate a number of scientific experiments such as:
