The FH-2000 was the successor of the Panasonic HHC. Like its predecessor, it was a portable machine intended to run professional custom applications.
The computer was solidly built, featuring an IBM/PC-like keyboard and an 8-line LCD display located into the cover.
The basic software was comprised of an 8086 BIOS and a BASIC interpreter close to the Microsoft/GW-Basic, stored in one of the four ROM sockets. These sockets provided up to 512 KB of memory area for pre-programed applications.
The FH-2000 could be connected to a thermal printer interface which also provided 8 extra ROM sockets and a higher capacity battery.
This computer was mainly sold in Europe under Panasonic HC-2000 or Nixdorf PC-05 names.
does anybody have an eprom with MS-DOS (and BASIC) to sell for this machine. Machine is called Panasonic FH 2000 (for international market) or Siemens Nixdorf PC 05 for German market.
Kind regards Uli

Hello, I own a Panasonic FH-2000 but can hardly use it as it only contains Greek insurance applications :( Does anyone have a BASIC ROM (or image I could burn in an EPROM) to sell or share ? Thanks in advance, Philippe
