Panasonic HHC EL-H1400
There are no pictures available for this page. Maybe later?
The Panasonic HHC EL-H1400 looks somewhat like an extra-fat calculator, but looks can be deceiving...
|Production year: 0000||OS: - Undefined -|
|Type: Pocket Computer||RAM: 4KB||Display: Internal LCD|
It was built in the early to mid 80', and came together with a small thermal printer, both of which slides into a plastic rail for a secure connection between them.
Examining a little bit closer I notice that it's much heavier than expected, and it's NOT because of the battery pack. This machine has internal reinforcing, obviously so that it would be able to withstand
some abuse.(A feature sorely missed in modern machines) On the lefthand side there's an 'edge connector' for expansion equipment. This connector is actually an extension of the main board. On the back, there is a cover with 3 sockets where one can fit modules looking somewhat like the option rom's of the Tandy 102. There seems to be just one thing missing on this machine, namely a 'contrast' control.
But let's get technical... Here's what I find:
- Expansion: 3 ROM sockets on the back, a edge connector.
- Storage: Tape cassettes via the cassette interface built into the printer.
- Printer: Uses a small roll of thermic paper no thicker than approx. 20mm and no wider than approx. 75mm.
The unit is powered by a 4.8V Ni-cad battery pack charged when it is connected to the HHC which in turn must be connected to external power. (No separate connector on the printer)
- Programming language: No obvious sign of any, but the main menu refers to 'snap programs', and there are special function buttons.
- Even though it asks for year in two digis, it assumes that 00 equals 2000, and also seem to handle the fact that 2000 is a leap year.
- It can handle multiple alarms with text messages.
