Fingers Crossed for 2021 ...

2020 was the worst! COVID kept the museum closed for much of the year and a mains water pipe bursting causing a flood kept us closed for the rest. 
We're hoping to re-open in the next few months ... fingers crossed! Read More >>>

HP-34C Programmable Scientific Calculator

The HP-34C is a programmable scientific calculator. It features:

  • Continuous memory, allowing programs and data to be remembered by the calculator - even when the power switch is off.
  • Automatic memory allocation: the basic 70 lines of program memory plus 21 storage registers reallocates in 7-line increments to as mamny as 210 lines of program memory plus one storage register - automatically - as needed.
  • Fully merged prefix and function keys that mean more programming power per line.
  • Easy-to-use editing features for correcting and modifying programs.
  • Conditional and unconditional branching.
  • Six levels of subroutines, four flags, twelve easily accessed and reusable labels.
  • Direct or indirect storage, recall, branching, and subroutine calls.
  • Powerful root-finding and numerical integration operations.
The HP-34C can be operated from a rechargeable battery pack for complete portability.

Our HP-34C is in its original packaging and includes the owner's manual, 'solving problems', 'applications', and 'quick reference' cards. Serial number *2229S31544.
