Re: GEIGERBOT for Iphone

Jason, That sounds like good news indeed. I just updated my iPhone, but sadly it only went to version 12.4.1 so maybe the phone is too old. Geigerbot can be quite tricky to set up, you need to get the gain and the pulse height threshold correct before doing the pulse training. Try selecting the Gamm...

Re: Simple Arduino Pulse Rate Counter

I think you meant Svilen, not me, I didn't make a loop suggestion. Yes you are right, I should have addressed that to Svilen :p I would make one different suggestion though, there is a potential issue in using millis() - which would not be a problem most of the time, but if this arduino sketch runs...

Re: Simple Arduino Pulse Rate Counter

Svilen, I ran into a few issues with your suggestion for the array, but I think Tom and I have found a relatively elegant and fast solution. I tested it up to 30,000 cpm without any issues. This code runs on Arduino Uno with 8 digit 7 segment display with MAX7219 chip. Steven #include "DigitLedDispl...

Re: Lutetium Spectrum

Matthew,

You did indeed, and I even replied, my apologies for not checking this first, and thanks for adding your signature.

Very nice chunk of Lutetium, and the sum peak is where the two pulses overlap so you get 201.82 + 308.88 = 510.76 keV

Re: Lutetium Spectrum

Hi Photon (assumed not your real name), Thanks for signing up to our forum and sharing your work in the Spectrum Forum. As a general rule we ask new members to post using their real names and to give a brief intro in the Introductions forum, so please feel free to do that now. You can either change ...

Re: Simple Arduino Pulse Rate Counter

Svilen,

Thanks, that's exactly what I wanted but didn't know exactly how to do it.

This will also allow me to add a mode button, for changing the integration time.

So in the end what do we call it, java or C++ ?

Re: Simple Arduino Pulse Rate Counter

There seems to be some confusion as to weather it is java or C++

Here is my simple program, so maybe some hyper-polyglot can identify it :D

Re: Simple Arduino Pulse Rate Counter

Svilen, The Arduino coding language is a form of Java, you download the free editor and it comes with a stack of examples that you can open and modify for your own purpose. When you add on devices such as displays, you need to import a "Library" which is basically just some hidden code specific to t...

Simple Arduino Pulse Rate Counter

Hi Guys, Some of you might be interested in this project.. I'm sending one of my Neutron detectors over to ANSTO (Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation) for calibration and so they don't have to mess around with sound card software (my guess is they are hardcore NIM people), I quick...

Re: I am back

Hi Fer,

Great to see you back..., I can't believe you have GS-1100A (0024), that was one of the very first boards I made, is it still working? The GS has gone through many versions since then, and I am now up to serial numbers #1290.

Look forward to read more about your experiments.
