Comment Switches:
  • "01" is the power switch.
  • "L" is used to charge the internal battery pack when a power supply is connected ("laden").
  • "F23" selects the number of fractional digits. Correct rounding is performed.
  • "K" enables calculations with constants
To overcome the somewhat limited functionality of the calculator the manual provides algorithms to calculate n-th roots, exponential, and trigonometric functions!
