I have a gmc-300E and I get CPM on laptop by USB link with a Python program. I don't know how to transform these CPM to ÁSv/h.

I can read both the ÁSv/h value and CPM value on the device display but I can only get CPM on the laptop.

Is it a linear formula ? Sv/h = k*CPM. what is k value ?
Is there a false time correction ? Sv/h = k* CPM / (1 - a*CPM)
Is there a temperature coefficient ?
What is the tube reference ?

Thank you a lot for your help !

The program I write is this one, but you must indent inside the test if..else: and inside the while: loop.

import serial, time

ser = serial.Serial("/dev/ttyUSB0", 57600)
ser.write (("<<GETVER>>"+chr(0)).encode(encoding='utf-8'))
print ((str(ser.read_all ()))[2:-1])

while True :
ser.write (("<<GETCPM>>"+chr(0)).encode(encoding='utf-8'))
res = ser.read_all ()
if len (res) == 2 :
print (time.ctime() + " , " + str(res[0]*256+res[1]) + "CPM")
else :
print (time.ctime() + " , ERROR")

There is a simple factor between CPM and ÁSv/h:

Dose Rate [ÁSv/h] = CPM * 0.0065

An advanced Python Program GeigerLog is available here:

The GeigerLog manual explains the relationship of CPM and ÁSv/h in more detail.

Hello Ullix,

Thank you very much for your so precise answer !

I install phonon on my laptop and now all is pretty...

sudo apt-get install python3-pyqt4.phonon

Now I'll test a gps logger and maybe will play with openradiation.


Have a nice day !
