    Function Blocks (abbreviated as: AFBs). Owing to this modular design principle, each device can be optimally adapted to individual requirements. The enCore FC1 belongs to the enCore Flow Computer device series (in short: enCore FC). This series comprises several different device types that are used as industrial process computers for special tasks for measuring gas and liquids.

    About this Technical Documentation 2.2 The enCore FC1 Manual at a Glance The FC1 manual has a modular structure; it is made up of several volumes. Apart from the documentation on hand, all other single volumes of the manual cover all devices of the enCore FC series; they are therefore independent of the device type.

    4 FC1: General Information 4.1 FC1: General Device Description The enCore FC1 flow computer is an electronic conversion device for meas- uring and calculating the flow of natural gas or, in special applications, indus- trial gas or gases with a fixed composition. Different measurement devices are to be connected to the flow computer (gas meters, pressure transmitters, temperature transmitters and, optionally, gas quality measurement devices).
