Yes but I don't know if it works with the Eleks Mana. I use one of those on my mini CNC with a Cronos Maker board (which I prefer), I save G-code from T2Laser to the SD card and run it from the controller, the only thing it doesn't do is home the machine but if I need that I just use T2Laser connected directly (you must unplug the controller to use the USB connection).

Hello guys,
I may have made a mistake  ;D
as I wrote above I took a manase and an offline controller but the wiring is different
my offline controller

looking online I see the pin names (see images)
the laser controller has gnd, 5V, rxd, txd, nc, rst
the manase has gnd, 5V, rxd, txd and others but not nc and rst
can i adapt it or do i have to buy cronos board?

The offline controller just sends data like a COM port, you would only need to connect the RX, TX, VCC (5VDC) , GND.

NC = No connection
RST = Reset (only used when flashing)
