Mac OS X software

This area is for discussions involving any fusion related radiation metrology issues. Neutrons are the key signature of fusion, but other radiations are of interest to the amateur fusioneer as well.

Mac OS X software

Post by Steven Sesselmann » Tue Jan 03, 2006 7:04 am

Has anyone in this group, found or written a Mac software that can count
or graph audio clicks from a GM counter ?

If so I would be interested in how it works.

Absolutely! All sorts of geiger counter drivers exist for National Instruments' Labview software. They even have it for the Mac OS. If the full version is a bit too pricey, they have limited and student versions. I'm currently exploring integrating Labview into my current setup to fully automate all processes. Most manufacturers nowadays release Labview drivers for all their products. I plan on automating mass flow control, residual gas analysis, HV control, backing, turbo, and ion pumping control, and radiation counting all with Labview. If you really have the bucks, you can consider Agilent Vee or Wonderware. It's a bit tricky to get the hang of at first, but once you write your first VI, its a blast from there...

My Rad software does this through the serial port.

Chris, yes I have already found the blackcatsystems web site and the
software looks quite good for only $35.00.

It would have been easier if it could use the Audio jack input.
