The transient recorders in one rack share a parallel bus and are identified by their address. For a proper functioning rack all addresses should be unique.

The addresses range from 0 to 15. In order to change the transient recorder address you need to unmount the transient recorder first (see the for mounting instructions).

Then open the side panel.

for new TR 40-16bit-3U-opt the address switch is in the lower middle of the board. address swithc location

For older boards on the right side of the board a black (red before Oct. 2009) switch should be visible. The switch position 1 to 4 encode binary the address. The switch positions 6 to 8 define on the black switch the memory length (see there)

The ON position corresponds to a binary 1.
