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.

The address can be changed when used on with a command station 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, as it is not being used with a PCP.

When used in Pro Cab mode, addresses 3 through 5 are available. Address 5 is only available with firmware version 1.65 or better.

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.
