The sensor is easy to set up, reducing time and expense. It allows the students to concentrate on the science.

Dedicated ranges allow optimal measurement time to be achieved with safety considerations in mind.

Tough and very adaptable, with Bluetooth connectivity, this allows the sensor flexibility in placement and enhances the experimental design.

Designed to be used in physics, this sensor provides an ideal platform to introduce or extend the advantages of data logging, data storage and analysis.

The sensor is designed very much to be “hands on,” encouraging students to think about the experimental design philosophy and how the data is generated.

The sensor has the capability to measure the dispersion effect of radiation with distance – providing an invaluable link to principles in optics.

Capable of measuring half-thickness values for absorption – it provides a gateway to absorption processes in chemistry.

Time dependent decay evaluation creates a great connection for the random nature of events and links to chemical kinetics in physical chemistry.

Equipped with a dedicated mounting point - this ensures that stable and safe measurements can be setup.

Connected to the latest EasySense software, the Geiger-Muller Tube can be combined with other sensors to give more sophisticated measurement sets (e.g. the effect (or not) of temperature upon radioactive decay).

The Smart Wireless Geiger-Muller Tube Sensor is USB and Bluetooth compatible. Using Bluetooth, a sensor can connect to mobile devices, tablets, laptops, and desktops.
