DIY Transportable Radiation Detector utilizing Geiger Counter Module


We designed a nuclear radiation detector that may measure and detect the alpha, beta, and gamma radiation and alert us if its radiation is simply too excessive and dangerous for us.

Right here we used the muller tube and Geiger counter circuit to get the nuclear radiation.

Let’s begin with a bit background science on the radiation and detector earlier than we go onto it’s building.

Nuclear radiation is without doubt one of the most harmful and killer issues for the entire nature. It must get atomic radiation detected at an early stage in any other case the entire of nature suffers.

Nuclear fusion is without doubt one of the most potent sources for producing power. However we people carelessly use the nuclear fusion for growing and testing nuclear weapons.

Many instances leakage or blast within the nuclear reactor causes the entire metropolis and nation to endure and radiation kills not solely people however the entire nature habitat.

So we have to constantly monitor the nuclear reactor and in addition nuclear weapons and monitor any radiation leakage from these reactors and weapons.

So let’s begin the venture with the next elements.

Transportable Radiation Detector – Code 

First, set up the ESP32 board in Arduino IDE utilizing the directions supplied on the following hyperlink

Now set up the Geiger module library in accordance with the Geiger module you’re utilizing. Right here I’m utilizing the DF robotic Geiger Module.

Now in code, we have to set the pin for studying the sensor knowledge from the Geiger counter module. Right here I’m utilizing the GPIO2 pin for that.

Now add the OED module library; additionally set the setup perform after which create the loop perform the place you might want to chalk the nuclear radiation studying and present it on show.

Now join the elements in accordance with the next circuit diagram and place the miller tube contained in the tube place meant half on the Giger nuclear counter module.

Now energy the machine and it begins displaying the nuclear radiation worth offered close by if the worth is simply too excessive and the nuclear radiation is dangerous to you, then it begins making a sound utilizing a buzzer.

For those who convey the machine close to the nuclear bomb, then it begins making the sound. For those who go close to radioactive supplies or rocks like marble, uranium-based rocks, or stone, then it reveals the worth and begins making sound.

When you’ve got any doubts or face any points whereas making this moveable radiation detector, please be happy to ask within the feedback under.
