A term sometimes used generically, a hardware device for setting the DMX address of a Color Kinetics ColorBlast 12 and similar products. Since the luminaire has no thumbwheel, dip switch, or other means to set its address, they may be controlled one of two ways:
1. Using the Zapi, the address is set and associated with the fixture's unique serial number. Power supplies have multiple identical outputs; it doesn't matter which fixture goes into which output. http://www.dfd.com/led300.html
2. The power supply determines the address of each fixture. Only the information for each address is present at each output. The first fixture must be plugged into Output#1, the second into #2, and so on. City Theatrical PDS-750-TR.pdf.
Sometimes the functions of the Zapi are built in to the power supply, allowing the user to use the same power supply in one of the two modes above.
