I don't have Guidemaster software, where can I get it?

You will receive the Guidemaster software from your service provider when you purchase the product. Alternatively, you can request the free Guidemaster software on the manufacturer's website.

The ELAM Assistant constantly shows me that my tool is connected, even though it is switched off. Why is this the case?

Initially, this is not an error. ELAM establishes the connection to the tool indirectly via the controller. This means that as long as the controller is switched on and connected to the SWA5 via the network, the connection is also displayed as connected. It is not technically possible to detect that a Stahlwille tool is not connected.

How do I reset the IP address of the Stahlwille controller?

Click the power button twice. The controller restarts after 60 seconds. All settings except for the IP address are not reset.

Where are the programs for my Stahlwille tools set?

Programs are always set to the Stahlwille controller for the tools. The Stahlwille Guidemaster software is required for this.

Can I connect the Stahlwille controller to a PC via USB and access it?

No. Either the Stahlwille controller is connected to the PC via LAN cable or you access the device via WiFi hotspot.

What is the WiFi password for the hotspot?

Password is: STWController

How do Stahlwille tools communicate with ELAM?
