Mark Rivers already provided the correct OUT field in the message he 
forwarded to this thread.  I would just like to add the following info.

Now that the motor module has been split into multiple repositories, the 
SmartMotor module contains an example IOC:

 
https://github.com/epics-motor/motorSmartMotor/tree/master/iocs/smartMotorIOC

Controllers with model-1 drivers, like the SmartMotor controller, 
usually load motor.db:

 
https://github.com/epics-motor/motorSmartMotor/blob/ee30ba9cc44761a0cd28e22c9b48903368417096/iocs/smartMotorIOC/iocBoot/iocSmartMotor/SmartMotor.substitutions#L1

Which requires C and S macros for the OUT field:
