ELECTRONIC GAS REGULATOR
Economy and control of manual or robotic process of MIG/MAS welding
The first version of the technology, is used by more than 50 companies worldwide. It fulfills the ECO-GAS primary function, which is the expressive gas economy.
• Welding current
• Pressure and flow of shielding gas
• Instant flow
• Accumulated flow
• Pre and post gas flow

SINGLE DIFFERENTIALS AND MONITORED PARAMETERS
1. Welding current monitoring
The welding current is a determining factor in the MIG MAG process. It is what makes it possible to
form the electric arc, in other words, the fusion between the part and the consumable (wire). With this
monitoring, it is possible to verify its stability according to each process.
2. Visualization of current gas consumption
Since Eco Gas is an automatic gas regulation system, the current gas value in liters / min and CFH
(American standard) can be visualized on the device itself, therefore certifying in real time the gas
3. Visualization of cumulative gas consumption
After several welding performed, you can check the cumulative consumption of gas, that is, how
much in liters / min you have used in a given period.
4. Open arc monitoring
A very important resource for production monitoring. In this way, verifying the open arc time
accurately means to know how much work has already been done, effectively.
5. Monitoring of connected equipment ECO-GAS
In addition to bringing great gas savings, the ECO-GAS 3 is also a device that search for uniformity in
the operators’ behavior, enabling the planning of preventive maintenance. In a simple way, it is possible
to verify the time of the connected equipment without an open.
6. Cycle counter
It is also easy the verification of usage cycles of ECO-GAS 3. It is a feature that helps to visualize the
productivity in welding processes. Comparing usage cycles allows management by teams, shifts or
7. Pre Flow and Post Flow Control
The gas peaks at the beginning and end of the welding process are normal, however when controlled
manually, are large waster of gas. ECO-GAS 3 you can select the initial and final flow quantity in a
safely way. It is here that the perceived economy is expressive, even in a short time.
8. Software available in three languages (Portuguese/ English / Spanish)
ECO-GAS 3 is present worldwide, as a technology that brings direct and indirect benefits to the
welding process. That´s why, its international presence demands quality information in the main
languages like English and Spanish, besides Portuguese, since it is a proudly Brazilian technology.
9. Output Flow Regulating Scales
The options are the strength of ECO-GAS 3, enabling its regulation in up to 10 options of gas flow
scale, attending to several variables.
10. All settings are password protected
Security is essential for every cutting-edge technology. The ECO-GAS 3 operation is guaranteed
through configurable passwords, thus, the manager can define all the parameters and choose which
errors will be managed by the operator or whether the manager will be necessary.
11. Indicates error due to low pressure and lack of gas
One of the most serious problems solved by ECO-GAS 3 is to prevent the lack of gas or low pressure.
The lack of gas can results in costly rework, as in the case of large areas of welding.
12. Output Flow Verification
For auditing and process standardization purposes, ECO-GAS 3 has an output flow test feature for
conference by the torch (nozzle). In this way, it is possible to verify the correct flow according to the
gas release by the equipment.
13. Interface for automation
The Industry 4.0 birth has been bringing disruptive innovations to all productive systems.
ECO-GAS 3, which accompanies this technological advance, has a friendly interface for
welding automation systems (welding robot).
Parameter control can be done by the operator through the robot itself.
It is possible, for instance, a selection from a distance the desired scale of work and reset
