As far as I can tell, the 82240B is out of production, but you may well
be able to find some still available. Note that they frequently show up
on eBay. Note that for the 48 and 49 series calculators, you'll want an
82240B instead of an 82240A, to get the ECMA 94 character set.
I don't have a 49G+ (yet), but I've read that the 49G+ can still print
to the HP 82240 printers.
Does anyone know whether the 49G+ can print by IrDA as well as the "Red
Eye" protocol used for the HP 82240 printers?
Martel Instruments has some nice printers that look to me as if they
should work HP calculators. See
http://www.martelinstruments.com/8800.html. Perhaps HP will
re-badge one of these, or have Martel Instruments make a customized
version for HP. If the 49G+ can print by IrDA, I wonder whether the
"IrDA physical layer" would suffice, or would the "IrDA stack" be
Some of the Martel printers also have RS-232 available, so should work
with the "old" 49G, although I expect that a special application on the
calculator would be needed for printing graphics.
