It's powered off the mains. I have a common power supply for all my projects.

Battery backed up PSU

This is off the non battery backed up part of the PSU.

Thanks Carl.
I try and get all my projects written up as I always forget how I've done them later on.

Thanks for getting me up and running! Logging seems to be working fine. :)

My Radiation Monitoring Station hardware is almost completed and is uploading without any problems.

I have now connected my SBM-20 and my CPM has increased from around 10 to just over 20.
The old tube has been removed and I have added a secondary detection LED using a Ultra bright 10mm LED that flashes on every count. I used the alarm output for this using the Blink function in the software.


The Geiger Counter draws around 130mA with all displays on. This drops down to 90mA when the PIR turns off the 7 segment displays.

I have an SBM-19 tube on order and will try and house it outside in a waterproof box. I will probably add a small switch to select the 2 tubes as there is 2 tube support in software.

I may add a switch to disable logging in case I want to measure samples or experiment. At present the 7 segment display brightness is controlled by pressing the TEST button on the remote but I would like to add direct entry from the number buttons.

My build page for this project is nearing completion. I just need to add some detail on the changes to the Arduino code. Arduino Geiger Counter Build site

I am not very good at coding so I apologize in advance for the horrible way I have butchered the original code!
