note:

The new board is driven by a 10MHz crystal. Please add a new board to your Arduino IDE.

An impressive and inspiring design of the equipment based on the SBT11-bundle kit by Steffen from Moosburg (Germany)

Personally to me it is one of the most impressing and professional equipment designs based on the 
SBT11 kit . So much attention to detail, functionality and usability. Please take your time to enjoy these inspiring pictures!

Nuclear Radiation Survey Meter in the new factory made quality ABS plastic enclosure (phased out)


This enclosure which was designed for the "through the hole" geiger kit which I was previously selling on eBay. If you need such enclosure for the current - SMD version please check here:



Part list of the Nuclear radiation survey meter shown in the pictures (the one with SBT10A tube):
1 x factory made enclosure with precisely cut openings for the tube and interface elements
1 x printable vinyl sticker with artwork
3 x tumbler switches
1 x push-button switch
1 x 5 pin socket
1 x 5 pin plug
4 x screws for mounting SBT10 tube
3D-printed plastic frame for easy mounting of the counter inside the enclosure.

---



If you need the enclosure kit (unassembled and without the electronics) -
Just the enclosure with precise cut-outs, vinyl stickers with artwork, three tumbler switches, one push-button switch, socket and plug connector and internal mounting brackets for the electronics and the tube (tube mounting brackets are only for SBT11 tube kit. Mounting SBT10 and SBT8 tubes don't require such brackets)

Please choose the option you need

A new (à la Vindolin's ) 3D printable enclosure for SBM-20 tube on thingiverse.com (thing number 1422928)

Recently several nice 3D-printable enclosures for geiger counters have appeared on thingiverse.com  so if you are a 3D printing enthusiast and have a 3D printer it might well be of an interest.

Here is one more interesting one (thing number 1422928) which is for the kit with  the LCD shield . It is designed by the thingiverse.com user glassy.

This enclosure is remixed from the user Vindolins design which was originally for si29bg Geiger-Müller tube) (thing number 270764) and is for the SBM-20 tube

This enclosure also has holes for installing the power-switch, mode change button, SBM-20 tube "grill" and iR receiver window.  It also has a channel to insert the wire, which will connect one of the SBM-20 tube contact - so you will only need a clip (usually a 6mm fuse clip) to connect another contact.







Also user glassy  has designed an SBT9 tube adapter (thing 1397200) for the Vindolins enclosure 






A newly designed 3D printable enclosure by RadioNuclei95 on thingiverse.com (thing number1418799)

Recently several nice 3D-printable enclosures for geiger counters have been designed and shared on thingiverse.com  so if you are a 3D printing enthusiast and have a 3D printer it might well be of an interest.

Here is the one (thing number 1418799) which is for the kit without the LCD shield (where the LCD is connected by multi-wire cable). It is designed by the thingiverse.com user RadioNuclei95 .
The enclosure was originally designed by the user for two tubes SBM-20 which is installed inside and there is a hole for connecting SBT11 probe  externally.




Below is the SBT11 probe (thing number 098311on thingiverse.com )designed by the RadioNuclei95
