Like before in the GMC-800 case (http://www.gqelectronicsllc.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=10394) it seems that firmware 2.52 for the GMC-600 is using a configuration memory with settings quite different from both the old 600 and the new 800 configurations? Quite unfortunate.

@EmfDev, could you please post the actual configuration definitions for 2.52 on a GMC-600?

And from which firmware version onward is this valid?

I really wish GQ would embrace GitHub...
It's a whole lot easier to browse revisions and file bugs/issues...
And most importantly, have a source of "truth"

GMC 600+ Rev 2.52 has 6 calibration points (seen from the counter)
003541 CPM, 10 uSv/h
031870 CPM, 100 uSv/h
112584 CPM, 500 uSv/h
183243 CPM, 1000 uSv/h
228730 CPM, 2000 uSv/h
282307 CPM, 5000 uSv/h

Is this correct? Is this what GMC-500+ has?

I'm afraid: No. Unless the 500 firmware also had a change.

Ihab17 has pointed out the most obvious difference, 6 calibration points instead of 3.

The 600 configuration in 2.52 is also different from the GMC-800 1.08, which also codes for 6 points.

Please, which are the current firmware versions for which counter? And what are they? And what are the first versions for the various counters, where this new coding applies?

For 500/600/+

6 point calibration is added with 2.44 rev.

500 and 600 shared the same config since 2.31

500+ new calibration has 6 points. 3 for tube 1, 3 for tube 2.



old 3 point calibration addresses are not used anymore.

Thanks!

This is now included in the latest pre-release pre78, which you find here: https://sourceforge.net/p/geigerlog/discussion/devel/

Should reflect both GMC-500 and GMC-600.
