IoT-devices GGreg20_V3 module

Device Type: sensor
Electrical Standard: global
Board: esp8266

GGreg20_V3 Ionizing radiation detector module

Geiger-Mueller tube: SBM20

Input voltage: 2.2V - 5.5V

Tube Voltage: 400V

Sensor-side interface: pulse output

MCU-side interface: GPIO with pulse counter

GGreg20_v3 is compatible with the ESP8266/ESP32 logic signal levels (3V3 ACTIVE-LOW: 3.0-3.3V HIGH and about 0.7V LOW), and will work even with the 5V logic input. Sensor compatibility: any ESP8266- or ESP32- powered device

For example, it could be GPIO0 (D3). This pin is convenient because it has a built-in Flash button in most devices and boards based on the ESP8266 module - in case you need to check how the controller counts pulses without a sensor, it is possible to simulate pulses with a button.

Powering from a 2.4V input source

If you want to power the GGreg20_V3 from a 2.4 volt source, you need to short the Schottky diode shown in the photo with a wire or replace it with a 0 ohm resistor. Note, however, that such a correction will disable the module's reverse polarity protection: GGreg20_V3 reverse polarity prptection diode
