automatisch umschaltendes Netzteil
Explanation:
Since the term occurs in "auto dual power supply", I suspect that this is a power supply that will automatically adjust to the supply voltage (such as power supplies for laptops); i.e. the word dual refers to dual voltage rather than to the fact that the calculator has 2 power supplies (which would be somewhat unlikely).


Ext. Netzteil für 110/230V, automatisch umschaltend, 50/60 Hz.

Doppelspannungs-Netzteil


Explanation:
Babelfish yields Versorgungsteil, but I prefer Netzteil. The dual power refers to automatic voltage switching inside the power supply. This enables one to use the equipment in countries with varying voltages, usually 110 and 220.

The other terms should be:
- Rechnerfunktion mit Großziffern
- Automatisches Doppelspannungs-Netzteil
- Währungsumrechnungen
- Steuertaste für automatische Mehrwertsteuerberechnung

Cheerio,
Dierk

Automatisch umschaltendes Netzteil


Explanation:
vermutlich (aus der Gesamtbeschreibung) handelt es sich hier um ein Gerät, das sich dem jeweiligen Stromnetz (110 V oder 220 V) anpasst. Wenn dem so ist, dann würde 'Automatisch umschaltendes Netzteil' eine treffende Übersetzung sein...
