When the Power Cab is used alone, connected to its Power Cab Panel (PCP) and power supply, it uses the Cab Bus Address of 2.

NCE Power Cab
NCE Power Cab

The address may be changed when used with a command station (such as the SB5 Smart Booster) and multiple cabs, to avoid address conflicts with other Cab Bus devices. In this situation the Power Cab behaves as a regular cab (Pro Cab Mode), its command station and booster are inactive.

There is no need to reset the address after an operating session as the Power Cab defaults to address 2 when plugged into its PCP.

When used in Pro Cab mode, addresses 3 through 5 are available.

Address 5 is available with firmware version 1.65 or better only.
