Units and Conversions
  • Entry and display of special formats:
    • Feet-inches-fraction (e.g., 24' 7-3/16")
    • Inches-fraction (e.g., 287-5/8")
    • Degrees-minutes-seconds (e.g., 52.9.8)
    • Hours-minutes-seconds (e.g., 5:21:50)
    • Minutes-seconds (e.g., 125:32)
    • Fractions (e.g., 14-9/125, 32-1/2 kg)
    • Binary, octal, and hexidecimal (e.g., 101101, 55, 2D)
  • User-selectable inch fraction denominator (2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, or 1000)
  • Converts among and computes with over 70 different units (ft, m, lb, yd3, etc.), including both English/Imperial and SI/Metric units
  • Computes directly with dimensional values (e.g., 70 lb/ft3 x 5 yd3 = 9450 lb)
Keypads and Entry Logic
  • Algebraic and RPN entry modes (user selectable)
  • Choice of feet-inchs-fraction entry modes using either the 16-key keyboard or decimal delimited entry. For example, to enter 4' 3-21/32", you would press:
    • With 16-key keypad: [4] [3] [2] [1] [.] [3] [2]
    • With decimal delimited entry: [4] [.] [3] [.] [2] [1] [.] [3] [2]
  • Dedicated buttons for picking the units that you use most often (you can assign the units that you want to these buttons)
  • Mini-keypad for easy entry when working with Solvers, Financial Calculations, etc.
