Enter Browse path, Reading number and Tag's textual name.
The Browse path is required for LGX and optional for PLC/SLC/MLGX IOI path to facilitate access to the PLC from the DIAP gateway (Browse path is not necessary for SLC).
This example translates as BACKPLANE -> SLOT 2.
Example of accessing tag located in a program:
The syntax is "Program:<ProgramName>.<Tag>"
Example of accessing a tag in a CompactLogix PLC
Browse path is set to 1,0 - 1 being the virtual backplane and always 0 for the controller
