Interesting HP-32E with comma for decimal point



#2

The HP-32E in this auction uses a comma (,) for the decimal (radix) point and a period (.) as the thousands separator. Note that the serial number on the back of the case has an asterisk (*) as a prefix to indicate this convention. I have converted one of my Spice units to this convention by cutting a jumper on the power circuitry board inside the calculator.

See here

I have one like that given to me from Brazil (made in Singapore though). Probably made for the likes of continental Europe (UK uses period for decimal like the US).

Hi;

actually the comma for decimals and period for thousands applies to Brazilian standard, too. I also have a Woodstock with a LED display that happens to use comma instead of period. I´ll post pictures later (have to find the LED display, first...)

Cheers.
