The -2002 calculator combines the usual desktop 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. The -2002 was soon replaced with the -2002+.

A more sophisticated approach could be found in the -1796, this calculator got the 11 different exchange rates preprogrammed. If you need printing functions, view the -2004, -2005 and -2006
