SBM HOW-TO: configuring address switches


When setting your address switches, it is important to note which version of the 2-wire board you are using. If you have a total of six switches then you are running an older style. If you have eight, then you are running a newer style.

Below is a brief guide on how to properly set your address switches.

Address numbers range from 1-32. To set them first, set your address number by switching the dip switches (1-8) in the ON position. **IMPORTANT: The orientation of the switches “ON” position is different on the old and new styles. With the older style, the “ON” position is up, while on the newer style the “ON” position is down. Off represents 0 while ON represents a numeric value which is shown in the figure below. For instance, if your address number is 13, you would set 1, 4 and 8 to the ON position. (1+4+8=13)

NOTE: On the newer style 2-Wire boards the left three dip switches are not used. Be sure that they are in the off position or the board will fail to work properly.
