Digital Output Tags have Bad Quality in Scada when Using ION Protocol

Issue
A device profile is created using Profile Editor based on ION protocol, and then exported to a project in PSE.  A device is added to the project based on this profile.  The quality for all digital output tags are 'Bad'.

          

Product Line
PowerScada Expert 8.1 (PSE 8.1)

Environment
Profile Editor
Citect Project Editor > Variable Tags

Cause

Resolution
Find out what the output labels are for the digital output modules and modify the tag addresses accordingly.  Here is an example of where to find the label for one of the digital outputs:

Note that the tag addresses can either be modified in Profile Editor or using Variable Tags in Citect Project Editor.
