DCC Twin - 0 and 1 used by Twin / 2- 7 for throttles or cab bus devices / 8, 9, 10 cab bus for devices only

Power Cab- The default is 2 used by Power Cab - 3, 4, 5 for throttles or cab bus devices (6,7 reserved) 8,9, 10 cab bus for devices only

SB5 2-7 throttles or cab bus devices  / 8, 9, 10 cab bus for devices only

CS02/ Ph-Pro / Power Pro system uses 2 - 63 throttles or cab bus devices 

RB02-  special considerations:

16 WIRELESS Pro Cabs - They must use cab addresses 2-17. This is dues to the extended dsiplay requirements

All other wireless cab can use any number between 2 – 49. However it is a good idea to use the upper numbers of (18 - 49) to keep lower numbers (2-17) open for wireless Pro Cabs.
