How do I generate a Moscad broadcast message?

To generate a Moscad broadcast message, define a integer variable associated with the moscad device. In the address field of the tag, type "BCastx.y.z" where x is the target row of the Qualifier Table, y is the test data value and z is the test row of the Qualifier table. If z=y then set x=value. The value is set by writing an integer to the tag such as using a button command.

For example if a tag was defined as BCast2.0.1 and a button was used to write 66 to the tag, then a broadcast message is sent out where 66 is written to the 3rd qualifier if the second qualifier is equal to 0. The broadcast tag in Citect is write only and can not or should not be read.
