Probably. But I regard the IR 'interface' as being one of the worst ideas

My LogicDart has a built-in IR transmitter to send data to the HP82440B
('Visine') printer. Finding somewhere to get the 'Dart and printer lined
up, where they won't be knocked is a right pain. It nearly always takes a
couple of attempts to get a good printout. I would not want to rely on
that for linking a data logger to a calculator.
