Geiger Counters

Any Geiger Counters that can work with ST ?
I got a GMC- 320 off Amazon and it can output data on a USB/ Com3: to a PC.
Any ideas ?

Ok, I’m curious now. What do you use this geiger counter for? :nerd:

Counting the background nuclear radiation.
In units of mRems /hr or microSeiverts/hour or Counts Per Minute.

Probably have to write an app using node.js or similar on your PC or a raspberry pi to receive the data from the sensor and send it ST, then either a custom DTH or maybe a CoRE piston to interpret the incoming data depending on what you are wanting to do with it.

Please avoid cross posting the same question to multiple categories. It makes it very difficult to follow possible solutions.
