Monroe 'MonroMatic' CSA-10  
Written by Accutron on 2016-03-10  

Prior to the introduction of electronic calculators, the Monroe 'MonroMatic' CSA-10 was among the most powerful desktop computation devices ever built. The operation of the CSA-10 is derived from Gottfried Leibniz's original stepped drum mechanism, and is capable of performing fully automatic multiplication and division. Unlike its primary competitor, the Friden STW-10, multiplicands are entered on the main Comptometer-style keypad, rather than being entered on a separate ten-key keypad.
