The GAS media coupling is used for switching and monitoring compressed air, inert gas and other gaseous process media in the ALO3 processing optics. Additional monitoring functions are pre-integrated.

Areas of application

  • Laser welding / laser brazing


  • Switching is carried out at target location – optimal process/technical solution
  • This minimizes pre-flow times and reduces consumption
  • Comprehensive system analysis data, including pressures and flow
  • Integrated into existing robot media coupling, minimal change to interference contour
  • Switching and reading of additional digital signals possible
  • Completely standardized modular solution, partial functions are also possible
  • Significantly reduces operator training time
  • Complete functionality from a single source with one contact person


  • Switches valves for cross-jet, crash sensor, inert gas and reserve valve
  • Logs and monitors all dynamic pressures on the input side
  • Actively controls flow quantity of inert gas
  • Additional evaluation of switching status of crash sensor, protective glass drawer
  • Integration of module within the Scansonic standard robot interface
  • Connection of ALO3 processing component via MEKO GAS with the production system
  • Suitable for most fieldbuses, including PROFINET, Ethernet/IP, Profibus, DeviceNet, Digital I/O (others on request)
