VERNIER GO DIRECT RADIATION MONITOR
Vernier's Go Direct Radiation Monitor detects alpha, beta, gamma and X-ray radiation and can be used to explore radiation statistics, measure the rate of nuclear decay and monitor radon progeny.
This easy-to-use sensor consists of a Geiger-Mueller tube mounted in a small, rugged plastic case. A thin window protected by a metal screen allows alpha radiation to be detected, along with beta and gamma. Each new detection is indicated by a flashing red LED indicator and can also be accompanied by an optional audio signal.
The Vernier Go Direct Radiation Monitor can be used in a variety of experiments:
• Determine the half-life of an isotope
• Investigate radiation shielding
• Detect background radiation sources
Vernier Go Direct® sensors now integrate with Microsoft Excel Data Streamer to bring real-time data into Excel. This integration supports all Vernier Go Direct Sensors using the latest version of Vernier Graphical Analysis™ app.
Rechargeable Battery — Ready When You Are
The Vernier Go Direct™ robust rechargeable battery offers long battery life and provides always-ready operation. Monitor battery life directly from Vernier's free Graphical Analysis™ app Should the battery run low simply connect the sensor to the charging cable and keep on collecting — no interruptions or inconvenience to you or your students.
Wired or Wireless — The Flexibility to Choose
Vernier's Go Direct™ sensors connect directly to your mobile device, Chromebook or computer using Vernier's free Graphical Analysis™ app. No additional equipment or software purchases are necessary. Vernier Go Direct sensors can be used wired via USB or wirelessly via Bluetooth allowing you to choose the solution best for your classroom or laboratory.
GAPRO Vernier Graphical Analysis™ Pro includes all the features of the free Vernier Graphical Analysis app, plus enhanced functions for more advanced analysis. Its illustrative experiment videos and interactive graphing capabilities inspire students to explore crucial scientific concepts and analyze data in new complex and insightful ways.
GAPRO is compatible with most Vernier sensors and multiple operating systems and devices.

Vernier and Kidwind products are designed for educational use. They are not appropriate for industrial, medical or commercial applications. Details
- Warranty: 5 years (1 year on G-M tube)
ACSPH030 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Ionising radiation and nuclear reactions - Alpha, beta and gamma radiation have sufficient energy to ionise atoms
ACSPH029 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Ionising radiation and nuclear reactions - Each species of radionuclide has a specific halflife
ACSPH028 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Ionising radiation and nuclear reactions - Some nuclides are unstable and spontaneously decay, emitting alpha, beta and/or gamma radiation over time until they become stable nuclides
