The PS-2400+ Databank stores 150 names and numbers in a small housing with a protection lid. It traces back to the PS-2400 introduced already in the year 1992.

The PS-2400+ Databank features 4 useful functions:

The Telephone Directory stores names and telephone numbers
The Scheduler stores appointments, meeting times and reminders
A flexible clock with 12-hour AM/PM or 24-hour time showing day of week
A calculator with 10-digits display capacity
 
 

The display of the PS-2400+ consists of one line for alphanumeric characters and one line supporting only numbers. The PS-3600+ packaged in a similar housing sports a 3-line display and 8k RAM. 

The design of the PS-2400+ fits neatly with the PS-2000.

This powerful Databank stores 150 names and numbers in a single-chip microcontroller! The same chip scans the keyboard and drived the dot-matrix keyboard. Any ideas about other products with this hardware ? Don't miss the Galaxy 67!

The PS-2400+ was replaced within one year with the PS-2460i
