Texas Instruments TI-Navigator System, Wireless Network for Electronic Calculators

<< >>
By 2007 Texas Instruments calculators were used primarily in classrooms, often in conjunction with computers. The Navigator Learning System, copyrighted in 2004, linked individual student calculators wirelessly to a teacher’s computer. It included four network hubs, four network connectors (each of which could connect to four calculators), a charging bay, a charging bay power adapter AC9940, a network hub power adapter, sixteen TI-Navigator seventy-two-inch input/output cables, and four network hub clamps. A mark on one of the hubs reads: S/N:206 1041298 (/) MAC: 00093700A152 DATE:S-0706A. Another mark reads: MADE IN CHINA.
A sheet in French, Spanish, and English gives electrical information and a warranty. A leaflet describes radio frequency interference. A booklet describes the license agreement. The hub and charging bays are marked: MADE IN CHINA. A mark on the box reads: Made in Taiwan.
