GM tube to PC interface

  1. Hi guys

    The new L93 CLEAPSS radiation document has this interface on the cover to link the gm tube to a laptop, does anyone know or own one of those interfaces or something like it as the school want to show the effect of isotopes on different absorption plates

    One of the Physic's Teachers asked me to make one of the above but i ended up opting to buy one of these instead:

  3. Thats it, the school doesn't have a lot to spend as they spend more than there fair share on photocopying instead, like £7500 last year, more than our entire budget so anything to keep costs down.

    Printed circuit board

    A printed circuit board (PCB) has been designed by CLEAPSS for this. CLEAPSS is holding a small stock of PCBs, so contact us to purchase one. Using strip board for this circuit is impractical.
     
  5. I made the CLEAPPS Counter module that is used on the Radioactivity courses, using document GL118 dated 08/13. This was an older version of the current document that uses the Velleman VM167 interface board. I found this quite easy to make and cost about £40. The teachers were very pleased with it.
     
  6. i'd need to find a PET100 connector, not hopeful.
