Thing. Geiger counter for smartphone

What do you associate summer with? Sun, beaches, active games? Or maybe a “quiet hunt” and berry picking?

Be that as it may, many of us buy mushrooms and fruits at the market, from grandmothers in front of shops or right on the highways while traveling.

Why not? Fresh, only from the forest / from the cottage, natural and healthy.

Here are just such a number of radioactive zones in Russia that you cannot remember all of them: Often, it is on them that mushrooms and various useful plants grow well.

So without a Geiger counter, we paranoid geeks are nowhere.

Our Chinese friends can help with the purchase of the sensor: for example, here in one lot all the most popular versions of the available Geiger counter using a smartphone as a screen are collected at once.

This is much cheaper than a full-fledged laboratory device.

The easiest option FSG-001-Basic allows to determine radiation in the range of 0.1-200 μSv / h.

It’s a shame the accuracy of this 6g mini-jack console leaves a lot to be desired.

The presence of the background will determine the value – with a very large error.

Quite simple applications are used for work. Smart Geiger counter and Smart Checkeravailable in Google Play and App Store.

More advanced sensor Geiger Counter Pro-SGP-001 has an increased range of up to 0.05-200 μSv / h measurements and increased accuracy.

Like its predecessor, it uses a mini-jack of a smartphone running iOS or Android to connect.

Due to its accuracy, this device will help to decide whether it is worth buying fruits on the market, or leaving them to the owner.

Nevertheless, the natural background cannot be put anywhere. And the presence of radiation is not always critical.

Works with multilingual app Smart Geiger Pro (Google Play, App Store): here and the scale is visual, and there is a saving, and the operating time is taken into account.

Finally, a wireless Geiger counter BSG-001-Bluetooth with an accuracy of 0.1-200 μSv / h, it will be useful when walking in unfamiliar terrain.

The device connects via Bluetooth, transmitting data over 10 meters. True, if any iPhone is suitable, then Android should not be fresh version 8.0.

The sensitivity of the gadget allows you to recognize the presence of a radioactive background with a maximum detectable value for 50 meters.

The accuracy of this version is higher, but hardly better than 10-25%: it is suitable only for amateur purposes.

It is worth paying attention to the application: Wireless Smart Geiger (Google Play, App Store) is more suitable for analytical and hiking tasks.

The higher the accuracy, the more expensive the device is. So it’s worth considering your tasks.

FSG-001-Basic will cost 2424 rubles. Pro-SGP-001 is already 4441 rubles… For the most advanced BSG-001 have to give 5138 rubles.
