The €-2005 calculator combines the usual printing desktop calculator functions with an Euro currency conversion and a convenient tax functionality. All of the 11 yet defined exchange rates are preprogrammed in the calculator, 4 additional ones could be added later. The home country is selected with the Select-key. Two additional keys allow the conversion in both directions.
the €-2005 reveals a clean and simple construction based on the Toshiba
TC-83230 single-chip printing calculator circuit. It is connected directly with
the printer-mechanism, the LC-Display and the keyboard contacts.
The featured calculator was manufactured in China for the European market and is powered with 220 volts. The Date code suggests that Leo Electronics Co., Ltd., a Japanese manufacturer of electronic equipment, assembled the €-2005 in its Shenzen, China facility.
Texas Instruments introduced with the €-2004, €-2006 and €-5032 three printing sibblings in the EURO-line.
Non-printing desktop calculators with Euro conversion capability were introduced with the €-1796, €-2002+ and €-2003.

EC-5 and EC-7 Pro.
