Note: Node address 0 is used for messaging between nodes and must not be used.

A total of 255 node address settings are available. The switches are a binary representation of the decimal node addresses. Switch 8 is the Least Significant Bit and switch 1 is the Most Significant Bit. The switches have the following decimal values: switch 1=128, 2=64, 3=32, 4=16, 5=8, 6=4, 7=2, 8=1. Turn off the switches and add the values of the off switches to obtain the correct node address. (On=0, Off=1)
