ABB XRC G5 Flow Computers are the fifth generation flow computer that offers low-power with high-reliability Linux operating systems. Though XFCG5 and XRCG5 devices are based on the same software environment, including custody transfer measurement and control applications, there are two significant differences between XFCG5 and XFCG5 that are related to their hardware: XFCG5 devices include an integral multivariable transducer, and XRCG5 devices do not. There are more base I/O points on XRCG5 devices than on XFCG5 devices.
