The -2000+ calculator combines the usual basic calculator functions with an Euro currency conversion. The exchange rate between the Euro and the Home currency is entered with the small SET-key. Two additional keys allow the conversion in both directions.

EURO-2000+_PCB.jpg (40783 Byte)This calculator added a continuos memory to the earlier -2000 and a feature to set the number of decimal places (for the curious, you have to press the ON/C key about two seconds to enter the F-0-2 menue). Nevertheless kept the omtenal construction of the -2000+ identical with its predecessor.

A more sophisticated approach could be found in the -2001, this calculator got the 11 different exchange rates preprogrammed.

In 2006 Texas Instruments surprised customers in Europe with a complete new family of Euro Calculators labeled EC-3, EC-5 and EC-7 Pro
