2.Grasp the card from the handling grip location.

3.Slide the AXC-Scard into the CardFrame until the rear connectors “snap” into place.

The dip switch sets the first address of the card frame with the other 15 slots following in order.

For example: if set to one, the card frame addresses are set from 1 to 16. If set to two, the card frame addresses are set from 2 to 17.

The highest number allowable on the dip switch is 240 which would make the last device address 255.
