How to connect Tools

The tools are preconfigured at the factory so that they can be used immediately. ELAM includes tools for your scanners, screwdrivers, pick-to-light modules and much more.

  1. Connect the SWA5 Mini Client to power and internet and connect the device to an external monitor (not included).
  2. Switch on the SWA5 Mini Client.
  3. Connect the USB scanner to the SWA5 Mini Client via any USB port.
  4. Insert any rechargeable battery into the ELAM Solutions Smart Cordless Screwdriver. The screwdriver automatically connects to the SWA5 Mini Client Hotspot when the battery is plugged in.

Note: The ELAM Smart Cordless Screwdriver is locked and unlocked via an OpenProtocol interface. When switched on, the screwdriver is locked by default and is only activated when a screwdriving step is active in the ELAM Assistant. The connection status can be viewed at any time in the ELAM assistant.

Display the connection status of the tools in the ELAM Assistant

In the ELAM assistant, you can display the connection status of the tools on the button to check whether your tools are connected.

  1. Click on the "Tool overview" button on the button
  2. Tools (scanner & screwdriver) are displayed at station 1

Note: Please note that after switching on the SWA5 Mini Client WiFi, all ELAM services require approx. 2-3 minutes until a connection to the devices can be established. When switching on, make sure that an active Internet connection is available. If the connection status does not change to "Connected", have your IT administrators ensure that ports 1883 & 8080 are enabled in your network. An overview of the network requirements can be found in this article.

How to start the variant Key Organizer in ELAM Assistant

To be able to install the Key Organizer, the Key Organizer variant must be started in the ELAM Assistant. The ELAM Assistant app can be opened on any browser (Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome browser).

As soon as the SWA5 Mini Client WiFi is started, the ELAM Assistant opens automatically in the foreground. In the ELAM Assistant settings, the station is displayed on the button and information on which starter kit system the app is connected to. Click "Continue" on the button to go to the start form.

ELAM Assistant Settings

The key organizer must be selected in the start form to start the variant. Alternatively, the enclosed QR code for the variant can be scanned using the scanner.

After scan, the system automatically checks whether the correct QR code has been scanned. If the scanned code matches the variant, the variant is automatically selected. If this is not the case, an information message is displayed indicating that no information was found for the scanned code. If the Key Organizer variant is selected, a serial number and a production order can optionally be scanned or entered manually using a keyboard.

Otherwise, you can simply click on the "Start" button and the flowchart will be loaded.
