Wang 360 RPN calculator - aj04062 - 11-05-2011

Does anyone in this forum have experience with these units?

I have a system on its way to me that needs work to get operational.

According to Wang Model 360SE Calculator System these are not RPN calculators as they do not have a stack. Not all calculators having and ENTER key are providing RPN.

I thought it was RPN after watching this video

It should have at least two registers if I correctly understood the examples given, and the entry method appears to be RPN.

I have a Wang 520 that works the same way only with a lot more functions and stuff. I would not call it RPN any more than I'd call a Commodore Minuteman 6 RPN. There's no stack, no swap, no roll.

Okay,

Not RPN, but has Nixie Tubes! It will be interesting to play with. will soon have:

1 - CPU - model 360 SE

7 - 360K / 362K keyboards

1 - 320K keyboard

3 - CP-1 Card reader

1 - IBM Porta-punch for punching cards

If any of these extra pieces are of interest, let me know. I know I will not want all of them as I envision they will take up too much space.

Some might call it RPN, but not me.

However it will definitely be fun to play with! I love the Nixie display and Wang signature huge square buttons with nice click feedback.
