To configure switches on Stern SPIKE machines, you can follow the guides and instructions in the Switches docs.

The number of a switch on a Stern SPIKE machine is a combination of the address of the node its plugged into, and then its individual ID.

You can find the switch numbers are in the manual. Omit the “SW” and letters for extension boards. Here’s an example from Wrestlemania Pro:
